    Good to know, they're only closed on Sundays, so +/- 4/5 days, still at over 30, and I need to verify if leaving it there for a full business day (drop off at 8am, pickup at 4/5/6pm) constitutes a day.

    If so then I have days to add.

    Thursday I hadn't been rejected for the oil leak, so I talked with my service/customer relations manager and stated that this vehicle has an overwhelming amount of issues and that we need to create a greater conversation. He asked me to give him a chance to talk with his dealer people (I assumed GM included) and see if they can come up with a solution.

    The very next day (Friday) I had a service manager I typically don't deal with called me and state Toyota Corp has rejected the oil leak fix.

    On top of that, the service manager was telling me about how he's taken off the front driveshaft and will be putting audio ears under the vehicle because he "hears the sound and will work on pin-pointing it", I asked "what sound?" to which he replied the rear-diff howl. So that is back after being fixed last year.

    Worst part is that was not what it was in for this time, the papers I signed did not list this issue, and I did not authorize looking into it. So now they are taking apart components and troubleshooting an issue I did not know about nor authorize. I requested he document and he agreed.

    He then asked, upon stating himself and the Customer Relations Manager, want me to call Toyota Corporate and set up/arrange a Field Service Technician to come out to the dealership and ride around with me to have me talk about my problems with the vehicle.

    I don't appreciate being asked at this point to coordinate technicians flying out from Toyota. Additionally they need to both coordinate and ride around, as I am not a certified mechanic, I don't know what they've tried, and I'm not a g-damn engineer.

    I'll be letting them know when they call that they need to arrange that.

    Outta control.

    GM has not reached out.

    It may be worthwhile to reach out to the GM and speak with him/her one on one

    Thanks for the info! I'm a long way out from even considering doing the GFM track. I have mixed feelings about GFM for non-medical situations anyway.

    Just a driver mod.
    I think you Service Mngr is doing you a favor by holding on to the truck. Will only help you later on if you decide to use the Lemon Law.

    Wow...quite an ordeal. Curious where your truck was built .... let us know if possible.

    1, 4, 5 = United States
    2 = Canada
    3 = Mexico

    Your a better man than I .... i would have packed my bags and closed the door on this sh*t show a while back!

    Good luck man!

    United States (5), I believe it was Texas

    Yeah it's been a slow enough build up I gave it too many chances, it's the first new vehicle I've ever purchased, and the first vehicle I've purchased from any dealer. Hell of an introduction.

    Out of curiosity, what was your bed issue?

    And I was a certified Ford mechanic a couple years ago -- That's more than a "seep" - it's actually built up sludge!

    Seeps are more like when it just appears lightly stained, and it's not really even wet to the touch
