Just go to Albuquerque. I see alot of new trucks and cars coming from Albuquerque, traveling to the Four Corners, every weekend. Look in the Albuquerque Journal, you could see alot of used cars for sale, by the owner.

Webb had no choice but comply with Toyota's demand to separate from Government Motor - I too, will never again buy a vehicle made by GM - Obams' political contribution to the Unions; $55 billion borrowed from the Chinese, left for our children and their children to repay.

Toyota's are made in America by Americans, not Unions.

if you study how toyota tried to cover-up the accelerator problem you'll soon discover they simply tried to snow-ball the american public. webb went right along with it. their just another crooked dealership that has an institutional denial policy.

To stiff arm experts: I have been taking my car there for the past few years and haven't had any issues, although I keep up on the maintenance of my truck and don't expect something for nothing when I know it really doesn't fall into warranty.
And going to Albuquerque for buying a car is an option, but I have bought my last 2 cars from Webb since moving here. I have also bought from a dealership in Albuquerque when I lived there... and would not return to that dealership of thieves even if the deal was sweeter.
I am not in the automotive industry, but as many in the area, work for a small business. It is all about treating people with respect and having a good product. I will buy a car from somewhere not because the sales dept is nice, but because of the service dept... I only deal with sales for a few hours, but will be relying on the knowledge of the service dept for years. I have met not only the service advisor, but the manager and the Toyota tech. The tech took the time to explain what was going on with my truck, which I really appreciate. I am looking forward to the new shop being open (I guess I thought it already was when they opened the front).
I like Toyota Shame on ME

I like Toyota and the service that Webb provides. But Shame on me for having somesort of opinion. Well who can beat 3 year service oil change for the purchase of a vechicle. That saves some money in my pocket...I think... : )

And if you really research the gas pedal problem, you will see it wasn't Toyota trying to cover it up. In fact, I don't think that anyone has been able to duplicate the 'problem'. My thought on that was Toyota didn't take the handout from the govt and of course something needed to happen to make the manufacturer look bad... Because people were already so tired of paying for the bailout of GM and Chrysler.
My Toyota was made at the Kentucky plant. The majority are actually made in the US now. While the big 3 were moving plants to Mexico (buddy, don't think your 'american' car was made here unless it is older) Toyota, Honda and Nissan were opening plants in the states.
I have heard horror stories of friends trying to get warranty work done on their GM and the way GM tried to strong arm the dealerships so they weren't on the chopping block. I am not convinced it would be Toyota requiring the separation or GM (aka Government Motors). Although if it is from Toyota, I can't say I would blame them wanting to distance themselves from GM.

Please be aware that Webb contributes heavily to anti-gay initiatives. I realize that, in Farmington, this news may actually cause many to support Webb (given the number of Mormons and other rednecks who reside here), but be aware that they contributed TEN THOUSAND dollars to Prop8 in California. If you don't wish for your business to support this type of discrimination, you may wish to take your business elsewhere.

Somehow I would bet that most car dealer customers would be much more concerned with getting a good deal and proper service for their vehicles than worry about what the owner contributes to.

webb didn't have much choice but to expand. nobis makes it sound like webb went the extra mile by opening a dealership dedicated to toyota, not entirely true. toyota requires a separate dealership to sell their products. whatever the case, glad to have a toyota dealership in farmington.

i did tons of research concerning the sticking gas pedal problem...because Webb refused to document the problem. that's why toyota got into such trouble, because they at one time were documenting the problems. the problem has exsisted back for more than a decade when they went to an electric trottle control. now it's common practice to NOT DOCUMENT mechanical problems so there is effectively nothing to fix. if this wasn't the case then why did toyota get fined the largest penalty ever imposed on a auto manufacturer???? it was because they tried to cover up what they knew was a problem for years. the service docs are what nailed their asses to the wall. so, don't give me this crap that Webb was't in on the cover-up. i watched it first hand. i wouldn't spit on their lousey lying asses.

You are an idiot sir. Webb Chevrolet is probably the only honest dealership in our area. Look what Performance did to its customers, and now you have a crook like no other running the show there. High Country bumps the price on their vehicles 4 thousand dollars. Advantage is an absolute disgrace. I've bought vehicles and had vehicles serviced at Webb for 23 years. I am always treat courteously and respectfully by their staff. They had nothing whatsoever to do with Toyota's throttle problem.

Typical posts by some of the ignorant. To the person worried about who they contributed to, do you really expect everyone to believe what you do in order to purchase their products? Give me a break. Last I looked we have the freedom to believe what we want. How does that have anything to do with buying a vehicle.

Stiff arm expert, what does that have to do with anything. Why would DT say anything about that when it had nothing to do with the story. Also, the gas pedal problem has nothing to do with this. Dealt with and resolved. All auto companies have had their problems. If that's what you want to hold onto is the past then good luck buying a car from anyone.

Choose whatever car you want, nobody said you have to go buy a toyota because of this article, geez people. But be glad we have options in this community so we don't have to travel hundreds of miles to buy one. Bottom line they still have to comply with the manufactures rules. I swear, most of you spend more time trying to constantly criticize everything in this community I don't understand why you stick around here.

apparently u can't read, or just can't comprehend. my experience is valid no matter what insults you use. were you there during my experience? NO. are you all knowing, like God himself? NO. so how do you dare tell me what my experience was? at issue is your ego. insult anyone who dares to differ, typical small thinker. you might want to seek counceiling for your pride issues.

Your one experience doesn't make it so for everyone does it? You can always find one person who has had a bad experience any where. You might want to find a dictionary to learn how to spell counseling.
