    Spurio - did you ever find a good Toyota service mob around the Gold Coast or tweed?
    I'm between Currumbin and Nerang, so either would be fine.

    Superb service from 4WD Trekmaster

    Superb service from 4WD Trekmaster last week... http://www.4x4suspensionbrisbane.com/

    I bought my Billies suspension from him almost three years ago shortly after getting my hands on my 120...
    I've done close to 80,000k's on them and finally needed to replace the lower bushes on the front suspension.

    My mechanic phoned Bilstein and they told him they can't be replaced... 'he'll need to buy new struts' !!

    So... I thought I'd call where I got them from.

    He remembered me... (had height issues to sort out back when I had the heavy bullbar on... wasn't anything wrong with the product... just a different mechanic who was not used to IFS)
    ... and he had a set of bushes on shelf. When I asked how much he said "no cost, just call in and grab them when you're in the area" still, he was happy to put them in the mail if I paid the postage.

    Fitted up on Wednesday and drives like a dream... as it should without metal on metal

    Anyway... everytime I've done business with them he's been great (bought my Lovells suspension for my old 90 series from him as well)

    well i learned a lesson from my wife I am a easy going person and I try not to rock the boat our daily drive needed replacing so we purchased a Ford falcon fairmont now I was told no warranty so that was it, but after taking ownership some problems came up I was told the car was full check and serviced and all fault found were fixed. but the car fail rego inspection in NSW center tail shaft bearing and several other things .

    Now I said ok get them fixed no way my wife said and she wrote a long letter to dealership we got the car from and we ended up speaking to the owner of the car place in Broken Hill and he fixed every thing no charge and even replaced the CD player , so lesson learned if your are not happy with the sale and work done even though there is no warranty there is a implied warranty that states the vehicle should be road worthy at the time of sales

    some thing worth knowing about

    Reason: The aftermarket dealer warranty they offer is amazing. They have replaced the diesel motor completely (new for old) and then replaced the head that cracked with less than 4,000 on the clock with a new one. They took on Toyota rather than me which would have been required if I had an extended Toyota warranty.

    The service was fantastic, the minimal hassle was appreciated and the fact they did the diff oils etc to bring the service history in line with the engine replacement such that the continued service starts again is just amazing. PS, cost to me, a whopping $NIL, except for two bottles of scotch which the guys definitely deserved!

    Well done CMI Toyota!
    I'd be interested to see if they helped you with broken/faulty trims etc.

    CMI were no help to me with a broken drivers seat, rattly sunglasses holder etc...

    PLUS they stuffed my 120k service AND tried to scr#w me for over $1000 for ONE injector!!!

    I get mine serviced/ repaired by Ashburton Tyres & Automotive (nee-Ashburton 4WD and Automotive) here in tom price all done by the book servicing
    and will also drop you home whilst the cars being serviced and pick you up again to collect it.

    Don't charge the earth either, they don't always have you vehicle ready in time but they do quality work and I will continue to use their services.

    I get the Prado serviced at Motorama Toyota at Moorooka. Very prompt and efficient service and they make a good cappuccino. I always come down from Toowoomba to get it done because it's definitely worth the trip in terms of upfront honesty with regards to pricing and location.

    ARB - Great Customer Service

    I recently sent an email to ARB querying the Parker bulbs in my Bullbar failing 2.5 times in 12 months.
    I received a call from the 4x4 shop in Shepparton yesterday, saying that, as a sign of good faith, ARB have sent them a set of LED parker/blinker lights for my bullbar.

    Unfortunately, as Shepparton is 45 minutes away, and, like regular people, I work, I cant get there during the week to have them installed (and they don't install on weekends). This will have to be a mod I complete myself - Stay tuned for an update in my build thread.

    This act reinforces why I chose and ARB bar over all the others out there.

    I am new to "Pradopoint". Have had my 2010 150 diesel for about 5 months.
    Can anyone recommend mechanics for a service in the Frankston/Seaford Vic area.
    Thanks in advance.

    One of our fleet V8 troopies from Warburton was taken to Alice Springs for a service. It went to Country Diesel. The bill was $13,800. The vehicle was described by them as "un-roadworthy". It had always been serviced by Toyota before this (Goldfields). Country Diesel reckon it had never been serviced properly - ever.

    Service/Dealer: Nerang (gold coast) Hinterland Toyota
    Last Used: July 2013
    Work Done: Flush and replace Auto Transmission Fluid.

    Quoted 390 by grand motors, quoted 280 by Hinterland, Fit it in the day I rang up. Nice people, picked up car 15 min after I was originally told it would be finished (cant fault that). Cost 220 as the oil was cheaper than they had quoted!! informed me my brakes were a bit spongy.

    Only bad point i looked in the engine bay about a month later and found a clamp on one of the hoses. so the cooler wasn't getting any fluid.

    end result I would be happy to go back.

    This is a good story that started bad. My daughter has just taken delivery of a 2013 Hilux TD twin cab. We had the dealer fit a lift kit (brand not important to this story). The car had the 1000km service in Rocky by the Toyota dealer. Last week she drove from Rocky home and noticed a 'clunk' from the rear end. On inspection the bolt from the front of the right leaf spring had come undone and almost fell out. It was only held in by 20mm. On speaking to the suspension installers they advised the car should have been checked at the 1000 service. No notice was placed in the car to advise this was necessary. The Toyota dealer told me that the normal practice was if a car had aftermarket springs they would not check them. This has now changed and the dealer will check every bolt. The dealer also replaced the bolt and lock nut with a new one at no charge.
    We are lucky nothing bad happened here but it shows that some dealers are prepared to change their outlook on aftermarket items fitted to the car. Imagine what the insurance company would think if the car caused an accident or worse.
