damn dealer

i just took my car to a dealer yesterday since my auto gts transmission got stuck in 4th gear twice last week and when i reverse i hear a loud clicking noise from the front --they called me today said they road tested it and found no problems and heard no clicks from reverse when i have people ride with me they can hear it and the reverse thing happens everytime--the 4th gear thing only happend twice so i didnt expect them to encounter it again unless i got really lucky-=if that 4th gear thing keeps happening and it causes really bad damage then toyota would have to cover right? i mean i gave them the chance to look at it and they said they found no reason to-i insisted upon them looking at it but they wont-

you can call the toyota corp hotline and make that dealership take a close look at your transmission instead of just test drive it thumbsdown thumbsdown other option are just take the car to another dealership thumbsdown thumbsdown anyway, good luck.

i think i will get a second opinion at another dealer-the car only has 26k on it and they are saying my warranty ends in feb.--on top of that when i picked it up a bit ago it wasnt making the reverse niose-all i know is if they both tell me its fine and i end up have a problem they better cover it warranty or not

Sounds like they might be stalling. Get it checked up fast.
