    Changed the oil the other day and noticed the coolant was a quart or so low, so I pulled off the skids and found a nice pink trail of dried coolant that led to the water pump. 55,XXX miles. Bummer.

    Anderson-Weber Toyota in Dubuque, IA did me right.

    Water Pump: covered under 5/60,000 powertrain. (Had no idea! Thought it was a 3/36,000 warranty only!) That shows how much this truck has seen the dealership. WIN! ($700 and change is what I saw the on the paperwork. Not sure what the labor/part costs are, but I'm glad to dodge that bill!)

    Well they might as well toss a belt on, thought it would be interesting to see if they charge labor or not. This was at my request.

    Pick up truck.....NO BILL. They even covered the cost of the belt!

    So I bought a battery for $95 and replaced the stocker for precautionary reasons. This is its 4th midwest winter, and I wanted to get the dealer a little something.

    Anyway, an initial bummer turned into a real nice experience with Anderson-Weber Toyota in Dubuque, IA. Recommend their service.
