Scion Complaint - Scion - I'm done with you.
So, in a nutshell, the parking brakes on my Scion xD locked up one day and I KNEW the cables were corroded. I took it in to the dealership I bought it from and they ended up telling me they couldn't duplicate the problem.
So of course the parking brakes ended up locking up on me shortly after that and I made another appointment to get them fixed. This time I insisted they replace the parking brakes and I swore up and down that all they needed to do was just that.
So, of course I take it in and they end up NOT replacing the parking brake cables and instead "cleaned off the brake components".
So, as expected, the brakes lock up on me yet again after leaving the dealership so I immediately made an appointment at a different dealership for warranty service, telling them the whole story about the other dealership and that I KNEW that the brake cables needed to be replaced.
So a THIRD TIME, yes a THIRD TRIP to a dealership for simple warranty service, they tell me that yes in fact the driver's side brake cable needs to be replaced - but they need to order the part.
So, in the end I will have made *TWO TRIPS TO ONE DEALERSHIP and TWO TRIPS TO ANOTHER DEALERSHIP* for simple warranty service which amounts to probably a full day of my time between driving there and back and waiting for them to come get me, etc.
A new car is only as good as the warranty, and the service you're going to get from dealerships and I'm afraid something's not right with either Scion (likely) or the Scion dealerships.
