Toyota Marin Complaint - Dealer Sabotage my car
SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA -- Have a 2000 Cambry V-6 with 60,000 mi. The starter went bad so took it to Toyota of Marin. Also had them do the 60k check-up. Got the car back and within a day it began to shift itself into reverse whenever forward speed decreased to about 5 mph. Checked all fuses and noticed that the licenses plate and truck lights weren't getting electricity, checked its wires and noticed that three wires going into the truck lid were cut. I Spliced the three wires and the lights began working and the spontaneous shifting into reverse stopped. The Check Engine light was still on though, the fault code indicating the EGR flow was excessive and some manufacture/Instruction fault. This fault is keeping me from passing the smog check and hence getting the car registered in California. With some research I've learned that these fault codes, no matter how much reapir and new parts you pay for, will eventually come back once they start. I bought this car new from them and paid dearly for the service. The wires were cut in their service dept and the onboard computer hasn't been right since.
