Below is a copy of the email I sent to them from their website.
Just a recent update on how my automobile has been doing
since I bought it from Gresham Toyota in Feb. of 1996. I
traded in a '85 Camry that had approx. 188,000 miles for a
'95 Geo Prizm with already 21,000 miles on it. I just had
the extended warranty expire just earlier this year. The
car ran fine up to about Sept of last year when the
transmission went out on it along with the drivelines with
only 61,000 miles.
I still have all the paperwork from the shops to prove it. The extended warrantee covered almost all of it---I just paid about $440 out of my own pocket for misc. parts that weren't covered under the extended warrantee. Anyway, about 4 months ago, I was in Vancouver, BC and when I went to make a U-turn, the
differential popped out and may have cracked the underside
of the car. It has been knocking severely loud whenever I
try to drive the vehicle, thus making it a safety hazard
now. Naturally, all these late problems arise JUST after
the warrantee expired!!--try within a thousand miles approx.
of it. I have taken the thing to several shops to get
estimates on it and have been told the same diagnosis with
the car and price estimate of about $750-1300 to repair it.
I am attempting to find a "lemon-law" attorney who can help
me get the vehicle fixed as it has affected my
transportation to my employement.
You can rest assured, Gresham Toyota will NOT receive good
recommendations from me!
You took me once and if I can have any say in it, you won't
be able to do so to any family, friends or aquaintances I
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to send you this email
as I am sure if I was to call you to let you know about
problems with the car, I would get a run-around again just
as the first time I had major problems with it and had to
take the car all over the place to have it looked at. The
first time I had the major problems with it, it took me
about a month or over it to even have a Chevrolet or Toyota
dealer look at it saying that they couldn't warrant looking
at it because they weren't the ones that sold me the
warrantee. I took it to dealers in Beaverton, Hillsboro,
Milwaukie and of course, Gresham. I had less a run-around
playing musical chairs when I was a kid!!
