Unhappy SVT going in for service, guess what my loaner is

So every six months my car decides that it wants to be brought back for warranty work, last time they gave me a front wheel drive escape hybrid that absolutely blew nuts in every aspect of the phrase "blows nuts" it was slow, horrible on gas, and it had so much body roll that i thought a roll over was iminent at 5mph turning into a driveway.
so after holding me in the customer lounge for an hour, they tell me they have no cars available and that ill have to come back the next day.. today happens to be that day... and they are giving me *drum roll

a Toyota Tacoma - Nothing says Ford sport compact like Toyota Tacoma... WTF

basically no rental company has a ford available and therefore they cannot put me in anything from a rental company, but they can give me a dealership owned vehicle regardless of make, it just happens that the only car they can give me is a 4x4 tacoma truck..... this should be fun......

lol at least you get a loaner. The dealership I go to wont give me a loaner when my svt is in for warranty work or just being serviced in general.

Same story here, my Ford dealer doesn't let me have a loaner when my car is in for work.

svteuro88, I see you live in the same city as my aunt and cousins.

I've never had a loaner either. I purposely drive 15 miles to this Ford dealership because the one that's 1 mile away sucks. I've told them this and they don't care. Chances are that dealership won't get my business anymore either after three trips (not including the trip I bought the car). I wouldn't mind driving a truck around for a while.

In the Summer of 2006, my Escort went in for service. They ordered the wrong part and had to keep my car overnight because it was torn apart. They have an Enterprise rental service in house. They gave me a brand new 2007 Chevy Silverado 4x4 four door flex fuel pick-up! Well, I just had to find an E-85 fuel station. It wasn't easy, there were only eight E-85 stations in the State at that time. It was fun buying fuel for $1.69 a gallon, but the mileage I got using that shit was abysmal. I got about 10 mpg.

yeah, im hoping this dealer puts my car back together before they give it to me, the last dealer forgot to put some stuff back on, and lost some hardware.... on that note andbody ever gotten the carwash/vacuum you are supposed to get when you bring your SVT in for service? (its written in the SVT supplimental manual)

The dealership here is pretty cool. They have done that everytime I have ever brought in either of the foci that I have owned. Even for a simple oil change.
