Eric Savage, of Freedom Auto Group, it a “defining moment” for his Lower Twp. Toyota dealership and the car brand, as the repairs for sticky are repeated on an estimated 2.3 million vehicles nationwide.

It’s not the itself, which Savage a “really simple procedure.” the entire customer experience the recall — everything from the work, the service shop’s and even the quality of the coffee and in the customer lounge — that matter miles down the “I want to go overboard,” Savage “I want to go all the way. I want customer affected by this to feel the love.”

At Freedom Toyota, for example, the will pick up a recalled car a customer’s home or office, fix it, return the car. It is in the process of service hours on Saturday and adding Sunday hours for recall work. Denis Freedom’s service operations is hiring more technicians and a van so the recall repairs can go mobile, a technician coming right to a home or office to fix the gas pedals on the recalled models on the spot.

And a Motor Corp. official the company might offer or increase the length of its warranties as it to recover from the embarrassing of safety related recalls, most recently affected the system on 2010 models of the Prius hybrid.
