I'm really scratching my head about these negative reviews. I dropped by to ask about scheduling maintenance because my maintenance light went off. They said they could get me in right away. They were as pleasant as could be. I decided not to wait at the dealership and went home while they worked. The …

I went in for an oil change today. Service adviser Brad J. Said it would be faster ( since I didn't have appointment) if I declined the multi-point inspection. I agreed. Then I discussed with Brad that would plan on coming back in August to get tires as Michelins are on sale buy 3- get 1 free. Then off to look at new cars... thinking of trading in my 2016 Camry for a highlander. Then after about 90 minutes, Service adviser let me know it was ready! Yea!!! Until I get to desk. I had coupon for $22.95 oil change. But Brad said my 2000 Avalon requires 7 quarts of oil. When I question this amount as I have NEVER been told needs 7 quarts in all the years of oil changes; Brad assures me that yes Avalons take 7 quarts... have largest oil pans, blah blah blah. So I text my son (a master service tech at another Toyota dealership in another state) - son says absolutely Not!!! Takes 5 quarts. When I tell Brad this.... he is scrambling and calling billing desk... oh. He was wrong. NEVER Apologized ... changed bill. Then I asked to have him come Out and ensure that oil is at correct level since my son said too much oil can cause a lot of problems... Brad said no. He was confident tech put in correct amount. Wow.... will be calling service manager on Monday. And also will be talking to corporate Toyota as I feel like this is a blatant example of trying to make $$ off a non-suspecting female. Obviously. I won't be buying my tires or a new vehicle from this Toyota dealership!!! Lost my business forever! Update: Got a call from the service manager less then 8 hours after leaving the dealership. How refreshing!!! Received apology... which was sincere and heartfelt! Then an offer to fix the problem and make it right! Makes me rethink my review. (Changed from a 1 star to a 3 star). Maybe shouldn't jump to conclusions based on interactions with one service adviser. In fact, Maybe I will go back and get my tires from this dealership. Again very impressed that service manager called me while he was out of town for a special occasion!
