They go after her like sharks and I then get to unravel it.

Personally I would take it back to the offending dealer/mechanic and make them make it right on their $$$, but that's your call. A fluid level check should be able to be done at most shops, but you'll have to pay again, and you also need to ensure that they know how to check the fluid level on your Tacoma since it's not just a dipstick check.
I def know where your comin from with what your wife has to deal with...I get it everytime! I'm definitely takin it back go the same dealership and makin them explain themselves and fix it. Thanks so all of your advice!

But on a more light-hearted note, when I first saw the title to this thread my first thought was "...coming up tomorrow on the Jerry Springer show..."
