Shift to N while going down hills and at traffic lights, go to over drive and shift before 2, put helium in your tires, put 90% rubbing alcohol in your gas when its cold for easy warm ups. There is many things.

I mean like if you stripped the wires and put it into SATA and made your own SSD then that would be impressive. Anyone could have done this.

Bottom line, not what they use to be. Within the past 11 years they have helped my family with cars, great service every time. This year has been nothing but trouble. Issue 1 Early 2016: 2009 rav4 came in for an alternator. 94k on the dash. Yes the alternator was replaced, that worked fine. Also what was on the work order was a throttle body cleaning. It was untouched. There was a light dusting on the car from driving off road, and no finger prints or anything. I wasn't too worried about it, its not something that can hurt the car if you don't do, it just improves performance from carbon build up. Issue 2 June 2016: 2004 corolla had a bad throttle cable. 178k on the dash. Got it towed there, they looked at it and obviously it needed one. They replaced it, also talked my dad into rear brakes, and an oil change since it was 100 away to being due. (oil changes are done by the owner or me and not taken anywhere) He said yes to both of those things, and I didnt doubt the rear brakes needed to be replaced since they were done at 90k and I really did not want to do them since they were drums. Yesterday, came 3k miles and it was time for an oil change. Not only was the car 2qts low (it burns about 0.25 between changes) the filter was not tightened. They did not check the mounting spindle for tightness. I work at Jiffey lube like the bottom low of maintenance where you work and get trained, not work at a dealer and should know what you are doing. EVERY OIL CHANGE WE DO THIS! ITS NOT THAT HARD ITS ONE SIMPLE ALLEN KEY. LIKE HONESTLY IF YOU CANT DO THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT BE WORKING ON CARS. Issue 3 August 2016: 2011 Tc, hydraulic clutch issue 62k miles. This is where the anger comes out of me. I bought a car with a beat clutch, yes that was my problem. Clutch blew out within 700 miles. Flywheel was resurfaced, clutch, pressure plate, and slave cylinder was all replaced by benchmark transmission. This was at 58k. There was still a hydraulic issue. I spoke to the guy before hand, gave them a list: Clutch,Pressure Plate,Slave cylinder,Gear oil flush,Clutch line flush They did all of that but the gear oil flush. But I miss understood them and thought the slave was not replaced which seemed crazy to me because you ALWAYS replace them when you replace the clutch. I dropped the car off on a Saturday at Toyota, and two mechanics took it out and found nothing. So I went with one today, with my mechanic friend. I drove it got to a speed, put the clutch to the floor and said shift me into second. It reproduced the issue, and he said hmm. So we switched and it drove fine for a mile, and hes trying to tell me its normal. Until he reproduced the problem 10 times worse and my friend and I blurted it out there it is, and he stuttered and said some bullshit like motor mounts. So I asked him, if the clutch was bled by benchmark twice and it helped for a bit, what do the motor mounts have to do with it? He was SPEECHLESS. Then he said when a clutch goes, it either doesn't work at all, or it works without a problem. There is no coming and going. I specifically said its hydraulic problem. We go back and he said wait here. Talked to his manager for 20 minutes, came out and said bring it back when it no longer drives. Like not only is a bad clutch damaging my transmission and killing my synchros, he SENT ME AWAY WITH THE PROBLEM. Thats when I went back to benchmark and talked to him about this slave cylinder I thought he did not replace. He pulled up the work order and he did replace it and the Newark Toyota world people know it to. The master cylinder to the slave is probably what is giving you the problem (which made sense since thats the next thing you replace after the slave along with the lines going to the clutch) and you have to tear into the car to get to it, and not only that warranty work is a lot to do just for a little job, and to try a small shop or price toyota. He also said hydraulic issues get better and worse dependent on weather.(which I already knew) Bottom line, dont go here for service. The newark toyota dealer is excellent tho.

Gas Pump #1 is mine, people need to pull through. But the service is nice, the people are nice, Sunoco gas is better then most gas stations in ways of refinement, but I do like this place
