    Took the trailer out to see how the airbags helped with the rear droop.

    Well I picked up my truck again for the shop and I'm about at my wits end. Going on 7 weeks between 2 different shops (have had it for about a week since May 3) and I still can't get it done right. At this point I'm ready to sell it and wash my hands of the thing.

    New issues with truck:
    - Dent on inside upper left of lift gate
    - 3-4 scratch/dent/nicks on lift gate inside top
    - Chip in body paint by right hinge
    - Scratches on body next to left hinge
    - Garnish upper clip will not clip to gate
    - Paint is peeling/chipping/coming off around garnish clip square hole
    - Backup camera weather strip foam is gone and it is bolted straight to the lift gate...plastic nut inserts appear gone.
    - Spoiler/gate creaks pretty good opening and closing the lift gate. Sounds like plastic rubbing metal.

    Minor issue:
    - Noticeable paint lines/masking around both hinges on lift gate
    - Still rough white over spray on back edges/lip of lift gate.
    - Ding/crush mark in edge of driver door behind the protective film

    I know I'm extremely picky about stuff like this (and pretty much everything) but this is getting ridiculous. I'm growing to hate the truck and how it's disrupting my life.

    That's total BS You need to get with your insurance company a freak the F out. Tell them get it right or they need to total it, raise hell, don't hold back. Refuse anything other than perfection.

    Thanks. I forgot that the gate seems to swing not quite right compared to new. I think the hinge mounts might be tweaked. When closed the up gap between the gate and body is bigger than the new ones, but once open the gap is smaller than new ones. Something isn't right. And both hinges are new. I had them replaced when on this last attempt I saw that the holes were wallowed out. I've considered a whole new shell, but at this point that's all out of pocket and I have my doubts that it'd be assembled issue free.

    I can't understand how this is so hard. The first shop utterly butchered things. The second is better and genuinely wants to make it right, but two tries and still issues. I mean come on.

    I'm sorry I even filed a claim at this point. Wish I'd just left it and replaced the hinges myself. I think the claim has been closed so I'm not sure what I can do.

    Every insurance company I've ever heard of will warranty the repairs for life. File as many claims as it takes until it's perfect. It's a new truck that is now seriously devalued because of half assed body work. That's completely unacceptable.

    Yeah it's warrantied for life. The shop already wants it back for the chip in the paint we caught when I picked it up. Found the rest when I got home. I'll have to look into what my options are. I hate the idea of filing more claims on this thing, but I may have to. The wife has reached a point where she just wants it gone and get something else (and honestly even though I like the truck, I'm getting there too).

    Sell it to CarMax, take the money and buy another one. I know if mine was totaled, i'd buy another one, I love it. Honestly the only thing it doesn't have that I wish it did have is a V8 option.

    I hear ya. We almost went to CarMax last night but I wasn't in the mood. Tomorrow morning I'll see what they'd give me. Although KBB value based on what I owe, I'm betting I'd pocket $4k at most. Probably not enough to put down for another 4Runner if I wanted to go that route. We'll see.

    Here's the dent and the garnish clip that won't clip in and is damaging the paint. The last PIC is of a new 4Runner back up camera on the dealers lot. Mine is missing that white plastic piece, has a different bolt and washer and is tight. While I asked for it to be tightened up, it looks like they may have just used a. It on the back side and removed the factory plastic snap in nuts. I won't know until I open it up.

    Nice. You are loaded for bear. You might need a roof rack (to bring that bear home).

    Went by Carmax and took the truck to a third shop yesterday. Smaller mom and pop type with good reviews and one that refuses to be a preferred insurance shop so they aren't tied to doing the insurance company's bidding. The owner looked it over and said to make it right we needed to start from square 1. He wants to get new hinges, liftgate, window glass, garnish and emblems, clips etc... pretty much everything. Said we will test fit it together and get the liftgate swing and gap issues dealt with and he suspected there was internal tweaking of the current gate and possibly roof. So far I'm liking everything I'm hearing.

    I've contacted the insurance and and taking it to their inspector tomorrow to show all the issues and why I'm not happy. From there I can go to any shop I want with the estimate which probably won't cover everything. Hopefully the tear down will vindicate me and what I'm seeing and most of it will be covered.

    This is a smaller speciality shop that works on high end Corvettes on down and the owner is pretty no nonsense so I'm hopeful. Now I just gotta decide if I want to go thru more fix and repair on this truck or cut my losses and get something else.

    $32,000. So I'd pocket about $3500 when all is said and done.

    Yeah, not too bad. So the question becomes do I...a) keep and repair this (hopefully correctly finally), b) sell it and get a regular car for a DD and then an older 4x4 to wheel, c) sell it and get a new/newer Wrangler Unlimited or d) sell and get a new 4Runner and hopefully the same or slightly lower payment (although that would mean an SR5 instead of the Trail I have). Decisions, decisions...

    What I would do is have it fixed again. It'll be as if it's the first time since they're starting over from scratch. If they make it perfect, you'll be happy again. If not, take the 32K from CarMax and do with it whatever you want.

    Not a bad idea actually. I'm just uncertain as to how much if any of this will have to come out of my pocket. The claims specialist they escalated this to said if certain things were denied then I'd have to pay out of pocket if I still wanted them done (granted if the new shop says it needs it I'm gonna argue to SF if denied). We'll see...supposed to meet with the inspector in the next 3-5 days and go from there.

    Since this will be the third attempt, I would raise hell until it's covered 100% You pay your insurance every month, it's their job to take care of you now. If they refuse to pay for certain parts, just keep calling and moving up the ladder until you get the right person on the phone. You'll get your way, may just take a little time on the phone. If that's what it takes, i'd also drop them as soon as the repairs are made and move to another company.
