    My local dealer is jerking me around about a loaner whilst they fix my leaky timing chain cover. This is covered under powertrain warranty and a TSB.

    Does your dealer provide you with a vehicle if warranty work requires more than one day in the shop?

    They will only give a loaner if it's a under warranty safety issue that they can not resolve in one business day. That is what I was told.

    when I had the rear spring TSB done (at another dealership), they told me "we'll have to give you a loaner because we need the truck for a whole day". I'd go back there for thisservice if they were closer. My local asshat dealer was trying to charge me a deductible on powertrain warranty. :facepalm:

    Is the loaner at the discretion of the dealer, or does corporate have a say, I wonder?

    my 1 month old 2011 thats 3400 miles old has been making a horrible squeal behind the dashboard at 68-73mph.

    I made a service appointment and told them that I'm a wireless technician who needs his vehicle 24/7 and that when I drop it off at 7am, I'll need a loaner. Im sure they will come through, I just hope there isn't any friction.

    my dealership told me that they wouldnt give me a loaner, but my sales dude said he would take care of me. pretty shitty for the dealership not to give you a loaner, especially when you spend over $30,000 on a new truck.
