Dealer Promises


Recommended Posts

I have decided to buy the 08 when available. My nearest dealer is an hour away. When I mentioned this to him he said for routine oil changes I could have that done anyplace. Also, he said for any servicing or repairs that required an overnight stay he would drive out to my house with a loaner, pick up my car and then reverse the procedure. I am wondering if any routine servicing under the terms of the warranty require more than a few hours? Also, if anyone lives in the Tampa Bay area I'd like to ask you a few questions about the 2 dealers.

Routine service consists mainly of oil and oil filter every 5000 miles, rotation of tires at the same time, and air/air conditioning filters every 10,000 miles. No individual or combination of services should take any longer than a couple of hours. Regarding oil changes, I do my own, but would be hesitant to take a hybrid to a quikie-lube shop, primarily because I would rather not have to explain to every service tech why the engine doesn't start when he turns the key.

Besides, I like the time savings of changing oil, myself.

A mistake I made last weekend with a parking lot valet who said he sat and stared at the dash for 10 minutes before figuring out how to park my 400h. Hopefully no one was waiting behind him.
