The Formerly Outraged Granny Part 7
As one wise comment on a previous post said: when we're older we have to conserve our energies and really choose our battles. I am so very glad that I did fight this one, particularly in light of many elders who do not, or choose not, or feel so defeated and demeaned, that they don't take on a large corporation with any hope that their voices will be heard.
Well, hats off to Toyota because my voice was heard. I am certainly glad I did write these posts and forwarded them on to Toyota Head Office.
The response at the dealership level was extraordinarily courteous and respectful and satisfying and apologetic.
I thought I was beyond having a love affair with a car. But. This. Car.
She is a sparkling deep blue like the three sapphires that sparkled on a ring I had way back. I don't think there's a bell and whistle she's missing, from automatic headlights and dimmers to heated seats and crash prevention camera to cruise control to line crossing alert. And yes of course air-conditioning. I'm forgetting all the features. I drove around in her like a teenager after the sales manager had given me the internal tour of the car for half an hour, setting up blue tooth and Ipod and treating me so well it just about erased all the bad vibes and ill treatments I'd received a month or so ago.
I get a lot of sideways drivers' gapes at her. She's such a little beauty.
To say I'm pleased is an understatement.
My faith in responsible corporations is restored.
Toyota: you rock, you seriously rock.
Sapphie and I are going to be very, very happy together.
