These oil change threads just keep getting better and better. I wonder how often this happens when the customer isn't standing there to see it. Demand a extended warrenty on the engine!!

Heck ya i should get a new truck! This is not my fault. It is the second oil change. If you want something done rite I guess u do have to do it yourself! If there was another Toyota dealer in my town I would have went because these guys are all dumb shits that work there! I had problems with my 250 I bought there in 07 and they fuk'd me over then too, tryn to make me pay for recall work. This is the start of a very long drawn out process.. been through it before and here it goes again!

I watched a tech today put the lugs on a car with the Air impact! Some ahole at Frank Toyota did that to my front tires.

I had a tech at a local Toyota dealership forget to put the cap back on after doing an oil change on my 2009 Corolla. I drove to Wisconsin with it like that... We discovered it at my dealership there. The cap was still chilling there, on its side and the car was still OVER filled... Even after a 2,000 mile drive. I suppose it could have been worse, but I probably would have noticed sooner.

The technician was fired and no more C techs were allowed to touch my cars. I got free oil changes (and other stuff) for more than a year. I avoid the dealership as much as possible at this point. Mistakes happen but many of the technicians are idiots and should be watched -- which everyone should have the right to do.

OP, make sure they make this right for you...in some way.

The agony you will endure to get even a satisfactory result will be astonishing. There was another instance of this recently, but not sure how that panned out.
