They like to try and trick me into ordering the wrong parts sometimes. Or they will be dicks some times and call a part another name just so I will bring it in and have it looked at.

My local dealer treats me like gold. $67.50 CDN/hr..... I get a discount on parts and they do stuff as quickly as possible and always get my car back to me on or before time. I love em and I think they love me ! LOL !

Dude NEVER take your car into the dealership. I had an electrical problem with my Cam and I took it to the dealship, 2 weeks later and over $400 later they didn't fix my fucking car and still made me pay the money!!! They wouldn't refund my money or anything. They're liars and lowlifes that make their money by ripping people off!!

in Toronto. Labor rate is 92$ CND/ hr that's all i know.
i went to the dealer like 3 times for first 3 oil change.
and got my drum machined recently for like 100$ something CND. i guess that's not bad. but indeed, some of their service cost a lot, like little things too, parts are expensive too. one like plastic bolt is like 5$ CND + Tax !! lol

I don't go to the dealer unless there is no other possible way.

The closest dealership to me is real shady. My rear brake light bulb kept coming on but no rear brake lights were out. I called this dealership and they wanted me to bring the car in for $90 an hour. Said there could be an electrical problem. I said no thanks, I'll take care of it myself.

Call the dealership a few towns over and the service writer asks me, "Did you check the bulb in the third brake light?" I checked and that was it. I ended up spending $2.00 on some bulbs while the local dealership wanted $90 an hour to fix a damn light bulb.

I hate my dealer, they rape you (hence I have my own Toyota mechanic, who I trust - you cannot sit down a talk with him (he isn't a chatty person)), and anyone who thinks the dealer can really do stuff a good, dedicated Toyota mechanic cannot, guess again. Ford and Chevy have proven that over an over :rolleyes:

In general, dealers are shitty.

My mom brings to the dealer all the time........ but I use the car 100% now, so I fix my own problems, and find a shop that lets me do my own oil change for a couple bucks.

dude i told you that your wires got grounded but you still didn't listen:disappoin when you get there ask to see the work they did and if they can't show you proof go to this website and report them:

http://www.bbb.org/

cause i'm getting tired of these people getting away with shit like this. ask to see the old relay and if they say they threw it out ask to see the new one cause relays don't cost 260.

Relays really don't cost that much.

I remember when I had my camry. The emblems and everything were all dull and faded. I asked them how much it would cost for replacements. They took like 10 or 15 mins in the back to get all these estimates. He wrote out on a piece of paper $475. What!!! For that plastic bullshit. I never went back.

Never been raped before, but For all my Jacksonville peeps do not go to Toyota at the Avenues, I have had ppl come all the way from there down to me in De Land (2hr drive) cause they rip you a new one and use shitty products when they actually do the work.

I had a customer where I had do a power flush of their engine completely casue of sludge build up in a 01 Tundra, she showed me all the reciepts where she got the oil changed from them every 3,500 miles, but if you looked at the engine you would have sworn that the oil was never changed.

For my Volusia County/Central Fl ppl if you want a Reliable and honest dealership, thats actually cares about you go to De Land Toyota and for Service ask for Rich, for Parts Charlie, Adam, Matt or Steve and sales ask for Jeff or Tom and tell'em Will sent you. Very good ppl over there, when I'm too lazy to do anything with the car I drop it off to them and know its in good hands.
