Many calls to 'customer service' were met with 'she isn't here, she has no set hours'. Zero attempt to apologize or make things right. I have unanswered emails to the owners days apart & Toyota itself says that there is nothing they can do. AVOID at all cost. 'Service' has no customer service or integrity. I called to bring my truck in for recall (frame corrosion). I was scheduled on Thursday & asked for a loaner. I was told no, the work would take under an hour(I thought they were just examining the frame so did not think this unreasonable). When I arrived, my paperwork said 'waiting', & Keith mentioned calling me later. I told him I was waiting & he said the work would take a minimum of 72 hrs and as much as 6 wks. I was flustered-I had a full schedule & items in my truck I would need, since I did not plan to leave it. I told him I needed a loaner; he said that I could not have one because I didn't have collision insurance on my(12 year old) truck. I told him that I do have collision on a newer vehicle, but it didn't help. He acquired an Enterprise rental for me after an hr. I gave someone in service my keys; they later handed them back with my keyring broken, saying nothing. No apology for miscommunication/errors. I heard many complaints about how busy it was(mention of being out of loaners)-I should not have been scheduled if there were too many appts. I did not demand an appt that day, I would have come back weeks later. Keith said if the truck passed it would take 72 hrs *just* for the powder coat to dry, so I did not worry about picking the truck up/bringing the car back until at least Monday. This was important: I had no availability Saturday. Late Friday, I got a message: get the rental car back by 11:30am Saturday, my truck would be ready at 12pm. Confused, I called back, & was on hold for 10 minutes then disconnected. The next time I could try, they were closed. I called first thing Saturday, knowing I had a full schedule and wanting to give notice that I could not get there. I could not get through for 20 minutes; when I did, the woman snapped that it was morning rush & they had 30 cars to sign in. I explained my situation to someone in Service, including that my truck could not be ready & I could not bring the car back. I was threatened with charges for the rental car if I did not bring it back in 2 hrs(by 11:30am). I pointed out that it was not even taken apart late Thursday. He said Toyota will not allow rentals for >2 days, which contradicts what Keith said(>72 hrs, which landed on Sunday when they were closed, up to 6 wks!), meaning my work was rushed. The Enterprise paperwork said I had the car until Mond ay. I tried customer service at Colonial. I was hung up on after being told no one was there. I had no idea what to do-risk serious consequences for canceling commitments or risk unfair charges for a rental car, & pick up a truck that should not be ready. No attempt at working with me, compromise, apology or concern. I could have made it later or Sunday but that was unacceptable to Colonial. Desperate, I threw away most of my day but still could not be there until 2:30pm, especially on such short notice. Service grudgingly agreed. I arrived and waited a while. I was told my key was in the truck. It was locked, I opened it with my spare key & could not find a key anywhere. I asked if the truck would be locked with the key in it & was told no. In a hurry, I opened the door into my eye, hard, & it was swelling/tearing. I asked the front desk person for ice & was told to go ask the person serving coffee. She was wonderful & did get ice. A salesperson & customers checked on me but no other employee, including front desk person, expressed concern. I got a black eye which is my own fault, but what cold, uncaring staff. The front desk person said she 'wasn't done snapping at' someone: very unprofessional. She does not belong in a customer centric role, nor does the person answering the phone. I have worked retail & know it is difficult dealing with customers, but if you are not a people person, you need a job away from public. When I picked the truck up, I was given no info. On the road, my behind the cab utility box slipped: the screws that held it in place were missing! It was completely loose but appeared normal, a serious hazard to anyone behind me. If it couldn't be reinstalled the way it was, I should have been warned! Incredibly, my key was lost; after 40 minutes of waiting with no update, I had to request that it be mailed. I never heard so I guess someone has my home address & a key to my vehicle. Plus I have to have keys made. This just blew me away, I trust that my key will be taken care of/accounted for. Again, no apology whatsoever. They did try to hand me keys; the tag was for the wrong vehicle & I refused them (the poor owner-I could have taken them!). I do not know if the work was done correctly or if corners were cut to get it done so quickly.

Complaint filed with Toyota. Toyota Response: we can't help, they are independently owned and operated
