    well folks the saga continues.after taking my tacoma to the dealer for the leak the second time i was told by the dealer that the leak was nothing more than residual ATF from the first leak. i tild the dealer that they were wrong that there was no way ATF would sit there like that for 3 weeks. and they insisted that it was just residual fluid. i asked them if they cleaned all the extra fluid off and they said YES. well the fluid is back. im taking it to the dealer in the morning. lets see what story they come up with this time. have a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    I would also contact the BBB and get on record that the dealer is giving you the business. :mad:

    well after toyota told me it would have to go to arbitration. i looked around the net til i found a lawer to handle it. nevada doesnt have a lemon law so it falls under the federal warranty laws.
