32. Sounds like a Toyota dealer to me

I too have a Toyota and have had it with the local dealer near me (not where I purchased the vehicle from).
Simple oil changes, which is really all Toyota's need except for normal wear and tear items, routinely turn into marathon sessions culminating in a laundry list of other "problems" that need (according to them) attention - while I sit in a bus terminal-like room.
I brought the damn thing because of the Toyota reputation for reliable vehicles that need little mechanical servicing and here the dealer is disproving that every time I go there.
So I stopped going there.
I'm back to the 15 minute oil change joint. For tires, I go to Sam's - very good there for tires, but they don't do oil.
I found a local mechanic that got rave reviews on Nextdoor - he's terrific and honest. I plan to take the vehicle to them, with the laundry list Toyota gave me, for a check-up.
