in all fairness...you told them to check for the codes. that's not free (it's $90 where i am..so you got $4 on me spineyes )

but yes, toyota dealers generall suck..they rank extremely low in customer satisfaction polls. and with my experience..i'd have to agree. thumbsdown

Why the hell does it cost $90 for them to check codes when autozone does it for free?

^^ because people do it, that's why.

also, autozone uses a handheld obdII scanner..the one toyota uses is larger and is supposedly much more accurate.

for what it's worth though...i've never seen a case of the autozone obdII scanner misidentifying codes and every experience i've had (and heard of)..the autozone scanner said exactly the same thing as the toyota dealerships scanner.
