      Really? You find that exposed wiring and amps just bolted to the backseats acceptable?

      That thought has certainly crossed my mind, seeing how a thousand bucks is a very substantial portion of the remaining value of the car.
    5. Meh, it's not so much about modding, although...

      Meh, it's not so much about modding, although there is some of that, but exchange of how-to's. Which Prius part to get adjustable intermittent wipers, how to install cruise control for $20, does...

      After I realized the radio presets and trip meter didn't reset, I looked at the battery. Trust me, it didn't get touched.
    7. What if the city inspector drove by your house,...

      What if the city inspector drove by your house, look at the date it was built and told you the wiring is out of code and here's an estimate how much his cousin would charge to fix it, all without...

      See, that's the point. I did NOT hire them to do something for me. They were told by Toyota to perform the recall work, and took it on themselves to do their "multi point inspection", i.e. just look...
    9. How indeed. I don't and I'm feeling suspicious...

      How indeed. I don't and I'm feeling suspicious about that too. Like I said, for all I know all they did was run the car through their car wash and sprayed some tire shine on the wheels. At first they...

      Cliff Notes for the hard of reading:
      Dealer _says_ they performed these inspections and quoted prices for "necessary" services. Dealer is proven to be less than truthful in regard to what has been...
    11. 115 thousand...ish.

      115 thousand...ish.

      Oh, plenty of, and it would certainly not hurt to replace the belt sometime soon. But not at those rates and not by people who lie about the most easily verified things.

      Anyway, even with buying a 16mm socket and six inch extension, I was still below $50 for changing the spark plugs, for instance. Took less than five minutes. A whole lot less than $189, and not...

      The point isn't that they gypped me half a liter of water but that they said they checked and re-filled when they clearly didn't. I didn't even ASK for that service, was planning on doing it myself...
    15. Dude... I try to limit my exposure to people...

      Dude... I try to limit my exposure to people working at car dealerships to the bare minimum. Trying to convince /them/ they did wrong would be like trying to teach a pig how to dance. Annoys the pig...
    16. I already said the belt might well be necessary,...

      I already said the belt might well be necessary, based on the car's mileage. Also the belt costs $15. You just loosen the two alternator bolts (from above), pivot the alternator towards the engine,...

      Meh, I posted it here, on /r/cars, on yarisworld.com, and filled out their customer satisfaction survey That's all the effort I'm willing to put in.



      What a bizarre thing to say.



      LOL,...

      LOL, at least they spared me THAT spiel... because both filters have the date I changed them (like 4 weeks ago) written on them.

      The YouTube video on how to change spark plugs on a Yaris is ten minutes long and the plugs can be had for $6.99 at AutoZone.

      I think they've graduated from weed long ago and are now hitting the crack stash.
