Their service department lacks any sense of urgency or drive for customer service. It constitently takes 1-2 weeks just to schedule an appointment for an oil change and even with that appointment I've never had it take less than 90 minutes for an oil change and tire rotation. That's nuts. The advisor at the service desk has no interest in going out of his way to help a customer. I had to write a letter to Toyota asking for the service (TSB) which was eventually done anyway. Couldn't that employee have made the call to Toyota himself? Yes, but it might have pushed his lunch break back five minutes. Instead, he tried to sell me $2,000 of aftermarket parts. I think a lot of the problems are due to a lack of competition in the area. With the next closest dealer 75 miles away, most locals are used to this treatment. I moved here from a small city with two Toyota dealerships. When I bought my vehicle at one of them, they told me that as their customer I would never have to make an appointment for service - they had the staff to take care of their customers. They also had free loaners if your service would take more than four hours. I never spent more than 45 minutes waiting for an oil/rotation service and they would even give it a quick wash and vacuum. That's service. Of course, they had competition and a reason to keep their customers happy. TJ could learn something from this example. TJ Toyota has clearly grown complacent with their local monopoly. I however, will be doing the work myself and going to Watertown or Plattsburgh for warranty issues.
