Additional Notes

Complaint: On 5/22/15 I purchased Toyota Care Plus without knowing that I will have to pay for 25,000 mile service before the extended warranty will kick in because my vehicle is under 20,000 miles. The extended warranty doesn't start until 30,000 miles. After realizing that I have to pay for the 25,000 miles service before the extended warranty kicks in on May 27 I called Rodland Toyota and chatted online requesting to cancel the extended warranty that was purchased. I was told that someone will contact me. No one contacted me so on May 29, I went to Rodland Toyota in person and request to cancel the warranty. I was told that the person who is processing my request is not in the office and that she will contact me. No one contacted me so on June 1, I wrote an email to the service department requesting to cancel the warranty again. It wasn't until June 11 when I finally received an email from Bre B******* from Rodland Toyota. I was provided false information regarding how long I have to purchase Toyota Care Plus and had to correct her. I've attempted to call Bre a couple of times and each time I'm told she's been sick or currently out of the office. I then attempted to email her to check on status. On July 9, I received email from Bre stating their accounting department should be cutting me a refund check and I should receive it shortly and to let her know if I did not receive it the following next. On July 15, I then attempted again to email Bre to check on status of my refund, but it has gone unanswered.

Desired Settlement: Respond to customer and issue refund.

Business Response:


Dear Better Business Bureau,


This letter is in relation to case number ******** that was assigned to Rodland Toyota VS ***** ****** on 7-25-2015 at 12:49.

In looking into this case I have discovered that Rodland Toyota definitely dropped the ball when it came to the handling of ***** ******.  Mr. ****** had requested to cancel the Toyota Care Plus contract on 5-22-15, this did not happen upon request, and carried on until 7-25-15 even after numerous attempts to reach Bre B*******. 

On 7-27-15 I had received your correspondence and discovered the situation had not been corrected.  I immediately had a check cut for the customer and Bre contacted customer to find out how he would like Rodland Toyota to get the check to him, whether it be delivered, mailed or picked up.  Mr. ****** chose to pick up the check, when he arrived we also gave him a gift certificate to ********* for him to enjoy, due to the circumstances of the situation. 

In closing we have reviewed our process to assure that we don’t have this occur with a customer in the future.

Additional Notes

Complaint: My family and I are experiencing financial hardship. *** has adviced us to turn the leased vehicle in 2013 prius because it is not afordable for a cheaper model, so our payment would be around 300.00 instead of paying the high price of 579.00. They have fail to work with us indicating our payments are going to be just as high because of our credit rating. We feel we are being discriminated.

Desired Settlement: I want Rodland Toyota to give us a fair business transaction proving us a vehicle that is affortble instead of taking advantange of our situation. My family has been loyal customers for years with this business.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/08/02) */ Checked with the Sales Manager and discovered the customer came in and was requesting to do a voluntary repossession of his vehicle due to inability to make his payments, he wanted to trade in car and lower payments however because he has negative equity and no down payment and is unemployed at this time. I spoke with Mr. ********* and though I empathize with his circumstances, I feel at this point in time there is nothing we can do to help him. He has surrendered his vehicle to *** and does appreciate the compassion and the fact that we called and tried. He will contact us if circumstances change in the future. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/08/08) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) I have made every attempt to work out an arrangement that is both suitable for my self and wife cathy brock and Toyota. *** refers me to work with Rodland Toyota and Rodland Toyota refers me to **** I was able to afford a vehicle for around 250.00 month plus or minus a few. I have explained my situation from the beginning in May 2014 that 579.00 per month was out of scope even if being employed. I have been mis lead or directed and very disappointed. I will file a complaint with *** as well because thay have mis lead me and my family as well. I am trying to work this out before it can get escalated. Sincerely ABP

Additional Notes

Complaint: On May 23rd I went into Rodland Toyota to have a pre purchase inspection completed for a car I was considering purchasing. The Inspection had been done and based on the information I went ahead and purchased the car. Unfortunately the car later showed some issues which could have been mitigated if the tech had checked the oil dipstick. This simple procedure would have taken less than 30 seconds of his/her time and could have alerted me to bigger issues. Upon further review of the sheet, the tech did not check the engine oil levels upon receiving the car. I called *** the services manager on numerous occasions between the dates of May 30th- May 6th. We only connected once and he told me he was going to talk to the tech. Unfortunately I never was able to connect with *** again to see why this pre-purchase inspection was not fully completed.

Desired Settlement: A refund of my Pre-purchase inspection fee.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2014/06/25) */ Customer brought in his 2001 Toyota Celica for a predelivery inspection, we advised him that the vehicle was burning oil which we suspect was a possible catalytic converter that was causing pressurization. He did not authorize us to further inspect the car, so we suggested that he review the car fax which reflected a failed emmissions. Since the customer felt that we did not give him all of the advice he wanted we have chosen to refund him his prediagnostic fee and he is very happy with the outcome.
