    Re: Good service/dealers

    We have been using Windsor Toyota (NSW) since the beginning. We didn't buy the car from them, but they have given us excellent service I believe. I like to think I know when I'm being taken for a ride or being taken advantage of, especially as I'm "only a woman". But the service dept at Windsor Toyota have always treated me the same as they treat my husband, with respect. Their pricing hasn't been too bad either I don' think. We drive from Penrith to Windsor for it, and I think it's worth it.

    Thank you Windsor Toyota, I think you're great!!

    I recommend Pitstop 4X4 at Wynnum on Brisbane's bayside. I first heard about him through Roothy in 4WD Action. I had a transmission issue for which the local Toyota dealer quoted a very large amount. Mike kept the car for a few days and methodically worked through the problem and solved it for half the price.

    Re: Good service/dealers

    At the last service I was told the 80k would be $1,000.

    As I had let my service times lapse the last service was at 73k at a cost of $600 ish. So the dealer wants another piece of me in 7k time!! Whilst understanding 80k is a big service for a petrol engine I remain Not Happy Jan - especially when I am looking to but a 150 off them.

    Any recommendations on Brisbane north side most welcome

    Re: Good service/dealers

    Had my under a lease so had to use Dealer , feel just have to trust them that they are doing what they say . But now out of lease took mine to Robson Brothers 4WD in Welshpool for the 80k and was more than impressed , did get a call from Rob during the service asking me if I had been doing any thing under the bonnet as there were a few broken bolts that had temp repairs done to them ,ummm dealers :roll: !!! But can recommend Rob from Robson Brothers for those in Perth as he was recommended to me and will be using him from now on. Cheers Digger

    Re: Good service/dealers

    In Brisbane, I've found Downtown Toyota (Morningside) and Sci-Fleet (Taringa) both very good and professional. Downtown provide a discount for RACQ members on parts as well as labour. You just have to sk. (Can't remember if it's 5% or 10%.) I've got in the habit of phoning around several metropolitan dealers when I need a major service. I guess that's the luxury of being in a metropolitan area, but it's amazing how much they vary for a straight log book service.

    Re: Good service/dealers

    Like Lacey I went to Windsor Toyo though live in Penrith area. I first went to Penrith Toyo to look at buying a 120 but no, they said, don't have any, not even one to show the missus what a 120 looks like. But if you want to place an order...Are they kidding? So we drove straight to Windsor and they gave a test drive in one of their several brand newies, no problems and I signed on the dotted line. So I"ll get my services done there. After the first 10k service they rang me about 2 weeks later to see if I had any problems. Very happy so far.
    Cheers Jim.

    Re: Good service/dealers

    We live in Ballina NSW andhave ordered our new prado from them. It will be ready for pick up om Tuesday. As we have sold our previous vehicle privately, they have given us a loan car for use over Easter and until we pick up the newbie......did not even have to ask......this is rare service I think!!

    Re: Good service/dealers

    Just had our prado in yesterday for the 1000k inspection at Ballina Toyota. Once again the service was fantastic. A loan car was given, eventhough it was only in for a short period, a 3 year service schedule, including dates etc, and to top it off a bag of lollies as a thank you gift.........a lot of dealers could certainly learn a thing or two from them.....fantastic!!Very Happy
