I got my Tacoma on 1 Jan 13 and have enjoyed everything about it so far. I had forgotten to ask the dealer for a oil change when I got it so I took it to my local Jensen Tire and Auto to get it done and it wasn't too bad but after what felt like the longest oil change/tire rotation/14 point inspection (1.5hours) the guy came back to give me bad news.
1. Both front struts are blown
2. Both rear shocks are blown
3. No cabin air filter
4. crazy dirty air intake filter
5. BATTERY NOT STRAPPED DOWN, literally nothing holding my battery down...wtf, probably something I should have noticed at the dealership but honestly who looks at that (if you do, don't say anything!)
Needless to say, wasn't very happy especially considering my vehicle was considered "CERTIFIED USED" from Toyota. Got my appointment for them to fix it all on Saturday and free rental car.
I was considering selling back my 4yr/42k mile extended warranty for an extra $2.5k but now that this is happening I think I might hold onto it, what do you guys think? Keep the warranty? 08 DCSB Off-Road TRD w/ 82k miles.
