What part makes it squeak? Is it something.... swap-able?
I got 3 months left on my factory, let's make that bad-boy amount to something, right?
All the Austin area Toyota dealers suck. I did finally buy a Tacoma from Round Rock when they gave it to me for about 2200 under invoice, but I hated dealing with them. That last of the 1st gens got rear-ended, though. I always called Jeff Hunter in Waco, offered 500 over invoice, drove up there and was in and out in 30 minutes. I now live in Missouri and have to start the dealer search all over again.
BTW folks, if your Toyota is a little past warranty and the dealer won't help you, a constructive
email to Jim Lentz (Jim_Lentz@toyota.com
) may get you some goodwill and excellent service. Just tell your story and why you think they should fix your vehicle, and then threaten to buy a Ford next time. I've bought 9 new Toyotas (2 were replacements for totaled vehicles, but they still count), so maybe I have a little leverage. If the dealer gives you any crap, it is worth a shot if you have a legitimate complaint. The dealer here in Missouri treats me a little nicer now.
