    Same here. I know exactly what has been done. Plus its a good time to actually look things over which dealers never do (ie fuel lines, ball joints, ect). I do have one independent place I go if its something i cant do (A/C for instance). but my dads been going there for like 40 years and knows the owner, owners kid and a few of the mechanics.

    I took my truck in under warranty for a dead battery. They paid to tow it to them instead of letting me bring the battery to them. While there they decided to do an oil change and then claimed they had to replace something (i forget what exactly) due to "animals". Mind you truck was always parked in the garage at that point. I called BS and told them to show me the part which they said was buried in the trash now. Then i refused to pay it as they never had my authorization to do the "repair" anyways. Wasnt till i was about to call the cops for them not giving my truck back that they finally gave me my keys and i left without paying anything. Never been back.

    I have always had good experiences at Toyota in Bellevue. It seems like they really care about the service side. So far their customer service has been great. But I have only had 3 out of my 6 free oil changes done so far. I also bought a couple small parts that I needed quick and they seemed fairly priced. They sold me tires and rims from a 3rd Gen offroad "used" (less then 25 miles) for $650. Turned around and sold the tires for $500. They seem pretty soild.

    I took my truck to Toyota in Tacoma for a oil change 1 time because it was a hectic month and it was due. So before I left, I popped my hood open and checked if they changed the filter. Nope I had the same filter on there because I always write the mileage on every filter before I install it. I asked for the tech who changed my filter if he changed it and straight to my face he said yes. I told him to follow me to my truck. When he saw that my hood was open he told me he didn't even do it. The Manager heard what was going on and he said I could have 2 free oil changes and I told him to fuck off and I never went back there again.

    Seems par for the course as your truck is new and can be claimed warranties against Toyota NA, so they make money just for you walking in the door. Of course they are going to be nice to you...

    My experience with Micheal's Toyota in Bellevue is less than stellar:
    Drove my 03 DCSB 4x4 already modded into the service bay for my first Toyota service experience with a Toyota.
    Stood there for 15 minutes while service writers and shuttle personnel walked all around me without even addressing me or a word of "someone will be with you in a minute". After the completion of the oil change and filter, I asked for the GM and expressed my displeasure for what felt like superiority/elitism (for lack of a better words). Just because I didn't purchase there, doesn't mean to treat someone less than.. They are my VERY last choice even though they are closest to me...

    For all my OEM parts, I go to Toyota Renton.

    I will buy parts from Toyota of Renton but only if my connection through a connection a Toyota of Kirkland isn't available.

    I had a tech try to steal my TRD oil cap at Toyota of Renton, so I don't go there anymore (after my free oil changes were up).

    Toyota of Seattle has really impressed me.

    I went in to Toyota Seattle for my last oil change and never got the tool kit and jack when I bought ilthe truck new. It's been over a year since I bought it and they ordered new ones for me no problem.

    Nate did my cab mount chop today. He's a good dude. Does good work.

    I went and played at Tahuya with a friend on Monday. I figured it would be crowded since it was a holiday, but it was desolate. We were there all day and we were the only two trucks that we saw.

    I recommend Truck Builders LLC on 99 in Lynnwood. I believe they are just south of 172 st sw on the east side. Just south of the QFC.
    I got my SnugTop there, I had a couple of problems which they took care of.
