    Took my truck in for axle seal replacement, they said both were leaking, fine, whatever. They replaced pretty much everything from the axle shaft to the wheel, brand new parts are great right? SURE anyways.

    The bastards had the truck all day.... went into overtime, didn't get my truck till 6pm or later... Hopped in, realized immediately the brakes still had air in the lines.... I said screw it, he worked all day, I'm gonna let him go home. I had enough brake power to make it home without worry....

    So I get home, right rear brake is smoking, interesting I thought.... out of adjustment, which supposedly took him an hour to do. I bled the rear brakes really quick like, air in the right side, easy enough. I go to move my truck forward a few inches to give some room next to me and I'll be damned if that brake is almost completely locked up. Mother'fers


    Its a friday night, I don't have my F'n truck, and I'm going to have to do the work myself tommorow to fix their fuck ups!

    Have it towed, and drop the bill on the service manager's desk.

    Likely the kid that did the work is someone's son who has 1 high school shop course, and is just looking for a summer job at daddy's dealership.

    No, (hopefully I don't offend anyone, and if I do I'm sorry but I'm a little ticked off) it was a stupid f'n mexican kid that looked fresh outta high school. I like the dealership, I know alot of the people there, in-laws worked there, and better yet I have probably the lowest customer ID number they've ever seen, 118 haha. Its just the service department blows, it always has.

    Why would you not? You've identified the problem as THEIR screw up. Therefor they should fix it. You might get a free oil change out of it.

    So what am I going to do all weekend without a truck then? :D Free oil change is pointless to me at this point, I'm in Oregon at the moment, but going to Sacramento next week. How about a free upgrade to the Tundra 4x4 on 37's they have sitting in the corner of their lot, brand new! :)
