Additional Notes

Complaint: I arrived at 8am for a scheduled appointment, to (1)repair flat tire, (2) regular 10K mile service, and (3) emergency recall. The car, 2013 Prius, was externally inspected in my present before it is passed to the shop. During inspection, I pointed out that there is a small dent, resulting in someone hitting it with a car door while in a parting lot. I asked if i can (4) get a quotation to fix that small dent. There was no verbal explaination to me, or any indication that there were other issue with the exterior of the car at the time. I was asked to sign 2 papers before i hand over the key. The only explanation and confirmation made is the 4 jobs that I requested above. During the 2 hrs of waiting time, I was informed periodically the status and the price of the repair of flat tire. I signed another agreement to pay $25 to fix the tire. At the time the service is completed, I picked up the car outside of the garage. Since there was very limited space and high traffic at the area that i'm picking up the car (not a parking spot), I decided to drive home before i put all the stuff back into the trunk. As I parked on the driveway, and intended to put all the stuffs & cooler back to the trunk, i approached the trunk and saw immediately a 4 ft long damage at the back of the car. I immediately call toyota and drove the car back. Without a detail inspection of the car, they claimed it is not a damage that they would have done in the shop, and the dent was "painted over". They accused me, that the damage was not done here, and that it was repaired prior. Not knowing any better, and not an expert on car bodywork, I do not know what can be done. They then asked me for the key of the car, and drove my car outside of their garage, and ask me to leave. Upon inspection when i get home again, it was clear to me the dent was not painted. I'm dissatisfied with the result of the serivce, treatment from the service manager, the "conclusion" without any attempted investigation.

Desired Settlement: They claimed it is not their fault without investigation, or have an expert looking at the damage. They asked me for my key and drove my car outside of their garage, and ask me to leave.
