Due to the Incompetent mechanics at the Central City Toyota Dealership's Service department I need a New Engine! I took in a 1997 Corolla for a lower control arm, coolant flush & thermostat since the heater wasn't working correctly, timing belt service, oil pan gasket, & oil change. I told them the corolla was burning or leaking oil & they claimed they preformed all the work as they charged me a little over $1200.00 since I couldn't get to do it because of my schedule at work.
I got this corolla with 87,000 miles on it & in mint condition; body & interior wise so my daughter can get back & forth to work. Now after a month & a half after this work performed on it she called me to tell me that the car was making a loud noise so I had the car taken to the dealership since the worked on it last then 2 days later they tell me that the timing belt is good along with there's oil but the engine is No Good & it'll cost $2600.00 for a used or $3800.00 for a rebuilt motor!. I had the car towed to another shop that deals with engines & transmissions only & seen the engine torn down, I only noticed the new timing belt, the thermostat & water pump was old & the oil pan gasket wasn't done!
