    Just got back from my dealership. Had them check out a noise up front. The oil pump inside the motor is bad. They have to tear down the motor to fix it,PROBLEM, is the truck is a 2011 off-road dc with 600miles on it.Told them I want a new truck. Said,Toyota wont do that. I said I'm getting a lawyer. Will find out in a day or two what happens with them buying it back. I'M PISSED OFF!! Anyone ever hear of anything like this?

    I tend to agree with you. That's a brand new truck and I would be HOSTILE.

    How long have you had it? If less than whatever 'buyer remorse' opt-out period your dealer offered then hand it back to 'em and walk away.

    I do tend to agree with the others that you'd not get a new truck for this problem. At most a new motor, but then only if justified. If replacement isn't justified I know I'd much rather they repair the oil pump vs. replacing motor since there's one hell of a lot less to screw up.

    Good news from the owner ofthe dealership! If Toyota won't buy it back, he will. Said he has one just like it coming second week of sept. Said my names on it! Now that is GOOD NEWS! My boss is building the new Toyota dealership, and talked to him today. I got a call from the service manager, the salesman, and finally the owner at four today. I'm happy again! He said he had a couple Toyota shirts for me too! Sometimes it pays to know people.

    He is one of the most down to earth people I have met. I had a feeling he wouldn't let me down.

    I will, and I'll be glad when its over. He told me he stands behind toyotas as the best truck going. He said that tacomas are never here for major repairs! He also has a chevy dealership.

    Here's a thought.

    A few years ago my brother-in-law bought a Subaru WRX. In the first couple of weeks it ate about 6 quarts of oil and was a regular chain smoker. Upon inspection from the dealer they found that one of the cylinders and piston was toast. My BIL demanded a new car but there was no way that was going to happen. He asked me to go into the dealer with him after lawyers got involved and Subaru won. I talked to the head mechanic. He explained that he would personally rebuild the engine and it would be better than new because it would be hand built with every attention to specs and detail. It wouldn't be put together by a robot and trusted that it was assembled to correct tolerances. He would measure everything to specs.

    To shorten the story the car now has over 100,000 mile and is the fastest little sucker you've seen. It flat out still purrs. He got a hand built racing engine. I would trust a rebuild from a qualified mechanic. If they have the kid out of auto-shop that just graduated from high-school then you would have an issue. Demand to meet the actual mechanic that will work on it and talk to him first.
