(10/27/11 05:18 PM PDT)- I must say this dealership is the most scandalous organization I've ever done business with. I traded in a perfectly operable vehicle and in return got a lemon with a leaking Head Gasket!! In early September, I traded in my 05 GMC Canyon 2WD in PERFECT condition for a 02 Nissan Frontier 4x4. Within one week of purchasing this 02 Frontier, it started overheating. I contacted Mac Toyota and they said "bring it in right away". So I drove all the way back to Mac Toyota from Vancouver to have Mac's technicians figure out issue. Within 1 hour I got the truck back and the service dept said it was a loose radiator hose which caused coolant to leak. They stated that replaced the Thermostat before selling this vehicle which I was already aware of. However it was leaking!! Well another week goes by and then sure enough..... My truck overheats again in the middle of the forest near Trout Lake, WA while camping with my 18 month old daughter in the truck!!! At this point I had enough!! I went to two mechanics and they found out that it was the thermostat housing that was leaking (which Mac Toyota apparently fixed). What really got my blood boiling is that both Mechanics found a HEAD GASKET LEAK that was causing the overheating and coolant leaks!!! After trying to get my money and my old truck back (05 GMC Canyon), the sales dept simply put me off and put me off saying "ohhh only the owner can resolve this. We have to run it through him." How is it that the owner is never available??? They (Mac Toyota) knew this 02 Frontier had problems and they sold it to me anyways. They stated they gave me A 150 point inspection..... my [violative content deleted]!! Not only did they sell me a lemon, but they sold me an UNSAFE vehicle that I drive my family in!! Mac "Lemonville" Toyota is NOT the place to buy a vehicle PERIOD. Just look at they're BBB rating (D) and compare it to ever other Toyota dealership in a 100 mile radius.
