We went to the dealer today, armed with an amazing aray of internet information. We were initally sent to the main receptionist who when asked "Who’s handling the slude problems?" at first didn’t seem to understand the meaning of the word, then when my Fiance pulled out a whole packet of information and put it in front of her and said "This problem, which I’m sure you’re aware of" she then aid, "You took me off guard" and then stopped the GSM or SM and asked him to talk to us. When in his office, we said, we bought a car from you and have sludge and the car has sat a month, he referred us to the repair department. We walked thoughthe hall and over to repair and spoke with the manager of that department. He asked for the VIN and the mileage, after we said "We have a bad sludge problem." He pulled the vehicle up in the computer then asked if anyone had removed the intake to see if it was sludge. We answered that of course we had taken it to two different mechanics, first because we thought it was an oil leak, burning and causing all the smoke. Both mechanics knew immediately that it was slude, although the one was nice enought to run diagnostics to prove there was no leak. We were told the car could not be driven. After telling the manager that two mechanics had seen it, he asked if it could be driven to the dealership. We told him, since it is shuddering and smoking like a freight train, both mechanics advised that the whole engine would seize up, and we would not drive it. He then gave us a number to a towing company for the dealership thatwould tow at no cost to us to the dealership and agreed to look at the car tomorrow. When I asked what it would cost me, he said "Nothing, if it is sludge." We’ll see. If this man is as honest as he seems, he’s not only rare, but amazing. Of course, he could call in a day or two and say it was my fault and want oil change receipts. Unfortunally for the dealership, I have them. This is a long story, that took only minutes when we were there. We’ll see. I’ll let you know. Unfortunately, I am upset because of casesI’ve read of on the net, and at this point, I have no faith that my 1999 66,000 mile car that I thought was the best car I have ever ever bought, (I have even sold Toyotas at many dealerships years ago as a direct mail marketing consultant who traveled to different dealers every week across the country and also was a finance assistant in Vegas for a Nissan dealer and sold used Toyotas in excelland faith, beliving in the product) well, I hopethey will live up to not only the reputation they have built, but to the faith I had in the company. My next e-mail will be much shorter. Yes they did fix it, or no they didn’t. Sorry for the length, but it may help someoneelse, who has mis-guided trust.
