    There have been several posts about good dealerships for buying a Prius, but how about good dealerships for getting your Prius serviced? I had a good buying experience with Fitzgeralds in Gaithersburg MD, but the service has been less than stellar. I won't go into details here (you can PM me if you want), but I would like to find a dealership that at least appears to know how to work on the Prius.

    Howdy,

    Are you familiar with the term “oxymoron� “Dealer Service†is on top of my oxymoron list!

    I have been screwed by every dealer I tried to work with (the one I bought the car from, the one in my community and the nearest one outside of my community)! I’ve left detailed letters relating to the service I want preformed, dealt with managers and owners and appealed to all of the corporate customer support escalation services; all to no avail!

    Personally, I go to a dealer only at the absolutely last resort. I’m no longer angry or bitter, I just don’t trust them or expect them to do anything that takes any effort on their behalf. I think that Internet car buying is picking up because there is no reason to purchase a car for anything other than the best price. Certainly my local dealers do not deserve any loyalty (or Toyota/Lexus for that matter)!

    I've had very good luck, so far, with Halterman's Toyota in East Stroudsburg, Pa.

    My husband does all our basic maintenance (oil changes, tire rotations, alignment checks etc), but it anything should ever need looking at by a Prius tech, he would have none other than Peter at Mark Jacobson Toyota (Durham NC) work on it. A real nice guy and he knows what he's doing.
