Sunroof in a 08 Doublecab.....GONE WRONG!
On June 20th, 2009 I left my Tundra with a local dealership. I was excited to have a sunroof installed but was hesitant with it being an aftermarket item. The General Manager assured me that it would look and function as well as a factory installed sunroof. He stated I would not be able to tell the diffrence. After being reassured by his word I paid $1,200.00 dollars to the dealership and had the sunroof installed.
The GM expalined to me that any and all warranty claims or issues with the sunroof would be handled by his dealership.
On July 02nd, 2009 I returned to the dealership. The headliner was already loose and beginning to flap. The sunroof was also making a loud click/pop noise when it closed from the vent mode. They removed one of the guides that was built in trying to make the noise go away. They also tried to make the headliner tighter but it didn't last long.
On Sep. 30th I took it back because the sunroof completely stopped working! Also the headliner was again loose and hitting me in the head. Then it started to rattle and they ended up having it for over two weeks! Now it's at the dealership AGAIN!!! The headliner is failing and it rattles like hell.
Long story short, I was assured by the GM of the Toyota dealer that it would be as good as factory! LOL Here are some pics and a vid. These were all from my phone so please excuse the quality. This has been a nightmare and they still haven't fixed it. Last time he told me that it was as good as it was going to get yet he made me bring it back today! So now I'm truckless and here comes the snow! Anyone have any ideas how to resolve this?
