THEY need to get a regional rep at the dealership to determine the problem. And if THEY can't fix it then THEY need to bring it someplace else that can.

And then THEY need to return it to your house.

Anything less is not acceptable.

Maybe it's time to apply public pressure.

Thanks glenn. They just called and claim car is ready. Let see about that. Haha. They said i could pick it up before 5. They close at 5. I said nope I'll pick it up at six. After a few minutes on hold they agreed. Now let's see what happens with the buyback. I am not counting on it.

Is this a joke they are giving me free car wash vouchers. I Think they want me to use them "the dealer" to wash the car because they are afraid it will leak if I use the regular car wash.

Do you know you can put it into manual mode and it has paddle shifters?

Obviously, you want a performance car that is a station wagon, but you're doing it half assed and think the VW will do it.

You'll need to pony up if you want what you want.... It's only $89,000.

Your 100% right glenn. Yes audi rs6 wagon dream car as well as e55amg wagon over 100k. A little more than I want to spend. Yes cvt with paddle shifters. Slow as a dog to shift and feels like your driving a motorboat. Very disconnected feel. Not for me.

Under the hood you'll find an 8 cylinder engine with more than 350 horsepower, and for added security, dynamic Stability Control supplements the drivetrain. Four wheel drive allows you to go places you've only imagined.

Yeah if I add a supercharger to the tundra I will be making the same horsepower as the audi rs4. Plus it will take me more places then I could even imagine then the audi. Win win save money and same power. clear choice.

Yup lol . Its been up a couple weeks. You know the deal. People like to waste time with a million questions. No shows and when they show they have no money. In negotiations with toyota. We went out yesterday during the rain and sleet and lily says she felt a drip your roof is leaking daddy. Jess and I said shes joking. 5 minutes later jess says its dripping on her head. So I guess they did an ok job with the repair its 90 percent better drips instead of pints. Today the spare tire area was flooded. Tommorrow looks like a nice day for a trade in. Ita been fun negotiating with toyota dealers the last few days. Vw denied the buyback claim. Oh and the thermostat housing is weaping now too.


GlENN this should make you smile. Haha
Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) on Friday announced plans to raise its stake in Subaru Corp (7270.T) to more than 20% as Japan's biggest automaker cements ties with its smaller rival to better compete with overseas automakers to develop new technologies.

Toyota's stakeholding in Subaru is the biggest of its investments in other Japanese automakers, and is the latest in a long history of stakeholdings which date back more than half a century:
