Unfair and Unethical Practice
Bureau of Automotive Repair
10949 North Mather Boulevard
Rancho Cordova, CA 95670
Dear Sir or Madam,
Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) called me on
10/28/2015 and said that BAR will send me some paper about BAR
investigation so that I can submit to court and DOJ.
However, I have not received such a paper from BAR.
Therefore, I make a research and send this report for your record
to protect and alert other citizen from the unfair and unethical
practice by Toyota dealers.
In the invoice dated 08/07/2015, Toyota Huntington
Beach charged me $5692.79. The
unfair charge included: Replace Rear Differential $3273.53, Timing Chain
Re-seal $2158.17, and other service $261.09.
I only claimed the unfair charge on Rear Differential and Timing
My Rear Differential was in major maintenance last
year on 02/26/14. The damage happened on 8/4/2015 after 18,000 miles or
16 months. However, the
warranty period for Rear Differential is 30,000 miles or two years as in
Toyota owner manual regardless of how old or high mileage the car is.
Moreover, after major service 02/26/14, my car was in minor plus
complete inspection services, three times on 06/25/14, 11/12/14, and
03/03/15. According to AGCO
(whyreardifferntialleaking_AGCO.pdf attached), there are two reason for
oil leaking are:
a) If the nut is not sufficiently tight, it could
loosen in use. This would affect the alignment of the pinion gear with
the ring gear and quickly destroy both.
b) When the pinion nut on such a differential is
removed, in order to replace the seal, the crush sleeve must also be
replaced. This involves disassembly of the differential and resetting of
the ring and pinion gears. Surprisingly some shops simply replace the
seal, thinking they are saving money.
The timing chain can develop a rattling noise
caused by failing timing chain guides. This is often due to extended
mileage intervals between oil changes that allows the oil to become
dirty and abrasive which wears away the timing chain guides until they
fail. The timing chain and guides should be inspected at each valve
adjustment, otherwise serious engine damage may result. Timing chain was
rubbing on timing chain cover, if long enough will eat into the block
and mix coolant with gas (failed-timing-chain-guides-may-cause-rattl.pdf
I had spent an average of $1300 per year
continuously from 2010 for maintenance and complete inspection on the
same dealer, Toyota Huntington Beach, to prevent the big cost damage.
However, I still had to pay $5692.79.
It is unfair and unethical, please keep for your record to
protect and alert other citizen.
Original complaint and other information posted on
Case Number: FL 2015015095, TOYOTA OF HUNTINGTON
Dear Sir or Madam,
On 10/28/2015 after receiving my complaint against
BAR, the BAR called me and told me four things:
1) Toyota Huntington Beach said that they do not
refund because I authorized them to fix the car.
2) BAR said that for a 160,000 mile-age car there
may be a big damage/big cost even though consumer followed the owner
manuals and Toyota advices completely/perfectly.
3) This case is not Warranty Fraud because Fraud
needs the intention of mind on the wrong doing.
4) BAR said that BAR investigated and found nothing
For the first issue, I believe Toyota Huntington
Beach misunderstood the term authorize.
I authorized them to fix my car.
That means I promised to pay them after their work done because I
needed my car to go to work ASAP; and I also wanted them to find out the
cause for the damage due to their previous maintenance.
It did not mean that their previous wrong doing became not wrong
because I authorized them.
For the second issue, I do not know that even
though I followed schedule/advices and paid big money for prevention on
potential big repair cost and for safety, my car still unsafe.
It is supposed that if I drove my car on freeway at 65 mile/hour,
rear differentiate (differential) burn out/broken due to dried out of fluid.
The burning-out rear differentiate sparks a fire touching the gas
tank and causes explosion.
My family and I died after losing control and my car ran freely onto
other cars causing 20 more people died for a chain accident.
Nobody would be responsible for such a scenario.
Therefore, according to BAR comment, I believe State should
create extra law for society safety. For example State should prohibit
all of cars having more than 160,000 miles to operate on any street.
Toyota should warn their customers to stop driving their car when
it reach 160,000 miles and refuse to maintenance/service such cars.
In fact, my nephew’s T100 Toyota still run well after 280,000
miles without any cost over $1000 for the annual maintenance.
For the third issue, I admit that I am not a lawyer
and do not know that the term Fraud needs the intention of mind.
I should use other words such as unfair and unethical practice or
scam in this case. Still,
Toyota misleading advertisement or scam is true and unfair because it
makes people believe and rely on Toyota's message that their car is safe
and in perfect condition if they pay $89 for Toyota complete inspection
every three months/5000 miles. The misleading advertisement is not only
created by Toyota Huntington Beach but also by thousand Toyota dealers
around US that affect millions of consumers.
Moreover, to think correctly our argument should avoid the
Fallacy of Personal Attack (Ad Hominem Abusive) "The truth value of a
claim is independent of the person making the claim. No matter how
repugnant, wrong grammar, blind, dumb, deaf, pathological liar ...
an individual might be, he or she can still make true claims. …
It is best to focus one's attention on the content of the claim and not
on who made the claim”
For the last issue, I do not know how BAR did the
investigation after September 2015 on the wrong thing happened in 2014
that was fixed/corrected in August 2015. Does Toyota Huntington Beach
still keep the damage parts and explain to BAR the cause? How to avoid
such damage? In my second letter dated 9/28/2015, I answered the Toyota
Attorney's letter sending to General Attorney Office dated 09/24/2015.
The Toyota Attorney letter raised other issues for Toyota
Huntington Beach wrong doing.
The safety of car is the most important thing
because it relates to dead or alive of many people. A poorly work by BAR
may miss the mechanical negligence, fraud, misleading advertisement and
cost other citizen lives.
The bigger the automotive repair business the more strict regulation and
enforcement of responsibility should be applied.
Mechanical failures are a factor in 12% to 13% of
all auto accidents
State and FBI should review the work of BAR and
Toyota Huntington Beach to protect other citizen lives.

BUREAU OF AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR
16735 VON KARMAN AVE. STE-100
IRVINE, CA 92606-4964
Case Number: FL 2015015095, TOYOTA OF HUNTINGTON BEACH
Dear Sir or Madam,
I received letters and spoke to BUREAU OF AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR.
My report on Toyota warranty fraud and false advertisement was submitted
to California General Attorney on 8/18/2015. The General Attorney Office
referred to BUREAU OF AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR (BAR) as an expert.
After two months (10/22/2015), BAR closed the case and did not tell me
whether my complaint about Toyota warranty fraud and misleading (false)
advertisement is correct or not. BAR just said that Toyota of Huntington
Beach did not admit their wrong doing; that Toyota of Huntington Beach
did not offer a refund because I filed complaint to California General
Attorney; and that BAR told me the option of small court. Though BAR is
an expert on Automotive for State, BAR has no opinion about the
complaint after spending time/tax money to review/investigation (as if
doing nothing). An opinion and a judgment are the two different things.
The statement “Do not offer a refund because of reporting [criminal
wrong doing] to State” is not a good reason for Toyota
behavior/decision. Again it is another misleading statement. Toyota of
Huntington Beach should distinguish the different between “Warnings” and
“Threats”. The correct statement should be: “I filed complaint to State
because Toyota ignored my email about their unfair practice.”
In fact, before filing complaint to State, I sent notice/warning/offer
solution through email and letter to Toyota of Huntington Beach and
Toyota HQ. I left time for them to think about the potential price and
their reputation for warranty fraud and misleading advertisement if
State inspection found them guilty; and if I post their wrong doing on
all of my websites, blogs, my Vietnamese Community, and alert other
consumers. Unfortunately, Toyota ignored and did not answer my message.
There is no answer/ no explanation/ no discussion from Toyota of
Huntington Beach. Therefore, I had to file complaint to State after 14
days (from 8/4/2015 thru 8/18/2015)
The reason for the car damage because of car mileage over 160,000 miles
does not make sense for new maintenance/service. A car 300,000 miles
refilled fluid level cannot dried out within 1 week, and a new good
quality tire cannot blow out after 200 miles just because the car
mileage. A rear differentiate renewal cannot dried
out/burn/damaged/explosion after 18000 miles; and the warranty must be
based on 30000 miles or more as schedule on the Toyota owner manual.
Toyota should refuse the maintenance/service for high mileage car if
they see the potential danger/big cost repair due to high mileage.
I cannot tolerate fraud and deceptive service that affect other seniors
and woman citizens as well as to create a
hostile/violent/dangerous/uncivilized environment for society,
especially by a big rich-powerful business. We live in the era of
It was a result from my negative experience while working for State XXX from
11/92 to 12/98. I saw my coworkers destroyed customers’ claims as soon
as they arrived to mail room. They treated claims as never receiving
them because of too much work and no overtime. The citizen victim did
not receive money to pay rent/food on time. They became crazy and
threatened to kill all people at State XXX. Other State XXX negative tactics to deal
with some difficult claim is to ask one thousand question to discourage
them. BAR gave me the same negative feeling.
My complaint is about warranty fraud and misleading advertisement.
“Fraud is deliberate deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain. Fraud
is both a civil wrong and a criminal wrong. A fraud perpetrator may be
prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities.
The use of false or misleading statements in advertising, and
misrepresentation of the product/service may negatively affect many
stakeholders, especially consumers. As advertising has the potential to
persuade people into commercial transactions that they might otherwise
avoid, many governments around the world use regulations to control
false, deceptive or misleading advertising.”
I believe warranty on rear differentiate should be at least every 30,000
miles as Toyota schedule maintenance (not 18,000 miles nor 12 months).
Moreover, during the major maintenance ($900) of drain and refill rear
differentiate, Toyota should advise customer to change any
worn/defective part to prevent explosion/big cost damage/unsafe driving.
During inspection on every 5000 miles, Toyota should check the fluid
level of rear differentiate. And after renew/rebuild rear differentiate,
Toyota should ask customers go back after a couple of days to make sure
no defect/negligent on Toyota work/service.
I also believe the Advertisement for “complete inspection and adjust all
fluid level” ($89) for every 5000 miles is to prevent big cost damaged.
However, I had to pay big money ($5692) for big damage that the Toyota
could avoid the leaking fluid happened to my car.
If my belief is incorrect, BAR should educate me because BAR are experts
on this matter, and better than General Attorney Office or Judge. BAR
should provide opinion in written paper about this case for me to submit
to Judge at small court as well as to DOJ. I believe BAR fails on BAR’s
Mission Vision and Values.

Warranty Fraud, Negligent Mechanic, and False representation
Dear Sir or Madam,
I received a letter of
Toyota Huntington Beach
attorney (dated 09/24/2015) about my complaint submitted to General
Attorney (8/18/2015) and Bureau of Automotive Repair (8/18/2015).
The letter said “… If Mr. Tran had brought the
vehicle into the dealership immediately upon noticing, the oil under the
vehicle, Toyota of Huntington Beach may have give a diagnosis."
It is a misleading and false statement.
The Toyota Attorney intentionally ignored the facts that:
1) I brought back my vehicle on the following three
complete inspection services after a major service on 02/26/14:
06/25/14 for CA $86.95, 11/12/14 for CA $86.95, and
03/03/15 for $86.95
The big problem happened on 8/4/2015 after 5 months
from 03/03/15 (scheduled for every 5000 miles complete inspection).
I am not sure the main cause for the damage happened on 02/26/14,
or 06/25/14, 11/12/14, or 03/03/15. After a major service, Toyota did
not ask me to bring back my car after a few days to check the result of
2) It is the facts that most of seniors and woman
know nothing about automotive mechanic. They solely rely and follow
Toyota dealer's advice/schedule to maintain their car in good condition
and safety to drive required by Law. Customers have to pay a very high
maintenance cost for Toyota dealer as if the cost includes
They also rely on the signal error/service light designed on
Toyota Car for error not on maintenance schedule.
It is the facts that I had never missed any
schedule. I had always followed Toyota Huntington Beach advice and
authorized on Toyota paper works whatever needed to make my car
safety/good condition back to the year 2009.
My records indicated I spent an average $1000 for major service
every year at Toyota Huntington Beach plus additional $300 for minor
service and complete inspection per year.
However, Toyota Huntington Beach could not discover or they
ignored discover the problem. They did not advise any necessary work to
prevent a big lost and unsafety for me. Isn’t it a misleading
advertisement that make customers to believe their cars is in good
condition/safety-to-drive after a complete inspection service?
3) Some leaking is little but it will dry out
enough for a big damage to happen after 18-48 months if the inspector
believes it is ok because it just did the renew last year.
Seniors and woman may see a little liquid leaking (like/as if the
water leaking after using air conditioner.) They have no idea about rear
differentiate leaking, water or oil, or
any mechanic problem. They rely totally on Toyota advertisement:
"Complete vehicle inspection, including Inspection all fluid level &
4) Based on Attorney argument about the timing
cover: "The leak was from the FIPG sealant between the metal cover and
the engine ... Not a worn guide or chain issue ...”
I admit the fact that I am not an automotive
technician; and I can guess the automotive problem wrongly. That is why
I need/rely on the complete inspection.
The issue now is that why such a leak happened? What was the
cause? Why did the complete inspection service not recommend customers
to fix for prevention of the high cost of $2158? All of Toyota Tacoma
will have the same such leaking for every 166,000 miles and pay $2158?
If not, how they know and prevent? Should Toyota have the duty to advice
their customers to prevent such potential leak on every 166,000 miles on
automotive manual as well as on schedule maintenance? Should the
“Inspection ALL FLUID LEVEL & adjust” include this leaking?
5) My questions are also the same for argument on
the rear differential: "…lack of lubrication from a severe leak, or from
age and mileage. This is a mechanical piece of equipment that ultimately
wears out over time."
Should all Toyota Tacoma have the same damaged
after 166,000 miles? If so, then should Toyota have duty to advice
customers to replace ("... A mechanical piece of equipment that
ultimately wears out over time ... ") during Toyota complete inspection
to prevent the explosion of rear differentiate or to prevent the high
cost of $3273? Why did Toyota not advise me on the major service of
02/26/14 instead of just doing “a drain and refill”?
Why did Toyota not advise me on the three consequent complete
inspection services (06/25/1, 11/12/14, and 03/03/15) about this matter?
I believe it is Toyota service Warranty Fraud,
Negligent Mechanic, and Misleading advertisement. State and FBI should
investigate to protect other citizens (specifically senior and woman)
from this unfair and unethical practice.
-------------------------- updated 9/29/2015-----------------------------
We can interpret the Toyota Huntington Beach attorney like this:
"Any car have high mileage such as
166,00-400,000 if doing replace/renew/rebuild any part, that part should
not be covered by warranty. For example, if you change for new Michelin
tires, and they are blowed out after 5 weeks; it is not warranty
covered. If you change oil and the oil dried out after two weeks, it is
not warranty cover. If you renew/rebuild rear differentiate for
$3273 and the rear differentiate burned out/explosion after 6 months; it
is not covered by warranty. It is because your car have high
Should service man refuse the service/maintenance
that they see the service/maintenance cannot help/not useful?

Subject: Warranty Fraud, Negligent Mechanic, and False representation
Dear Sir or Madam,
My Tacoma 4x4 2006 (Lic 8C76146) did not work and repaired at Toyota
Huntington Beach (18881 Beach Blvd, Huntington Beach , CA 92648,
888-226-3702) from 8/4/2015 to 8/8/2015. The service costs $5692
(Invoice C34556) included:
1) Timing Chain Cover leaking $2158
2) Rear differential replacement $3273
3) Other service $261
I believe the charges were unfair because the
damage resulted from Toyota Huntington Beach last year maintenance major
service on differentials and included in their warranty 02/26/14. The
flawed timing chain caused rubbing on timing chain cover and caused
leaking also covered by Toyota routine complete inspection and
maintenance. The timing chain and guides should be inspected at each
valve adjustment. The inspection on routine subsequent services should
inspect all fluid and adjust, discover the rattling noise, as well as
other defects as in their advertisement. Differentials oil should change
for every 60,000 miles and never damaged. Toyota 12 months warranty on
any service is misleading statement.
On 02/26/14, my Tacoma was in
perfect condition. Toyota Huntington Beach advised and performed a major
maintenance on my truck for the costs of $904.85. This major service
included differential oil change. I believe the negligence of the
mechanic on 02/26/14 caused the damage because of leaking gradually on
differentials or because of missing steps/wrong parts. The major and
minor inspection service did not discover the dirty oil on timing chain
that becomes abrasive and wears away the timing chain guides till they
fail and cause rubbing on timing chain cover. I saw a small leaking
fluid and heard a little noise from timing chain after the service
02/26/14. However, I did not know it is dangerous and trusted in their
complete inspection and maintenance including the three subsequent
inspection minor services.
Actually, Toyota advertises
their minor service includes: Complete vehicle inspection, including
Inspection all fluid level & adjust … and so on. It is misleading and a
The following records show their charges and their failure on
subsequently minor complete inspection services:
06/25/14 TOYOTA OF HUNTINGTONHUNTINGTN BCH CA $86.95
11/12/14 TOYOTA OF HUNTINGTONHUNTINGTN BCH CA $86.95
03/03/15 TOYOTA OF HUNTINGTONHUNTINGTN BCH CA $86.95
The inspection did not discover the differential leak and other potential
damages on my Tacoma. Their minor service did not inspect all fluid and
adjust, dirty oil as well as any rattling noise caused by failing timing
chain guides. In fact, minor service is to change oil only, not complete
inspection as they advertise
I have followed Toyota Huntington Beach advices for maintenance service
since 2009 until now, and have never missed any schedule. My Tacoma had
been in perfect condition under Toyota maintenance service warranty for
vehicle's safety and dependability, including inspection to make sure
that it is not a danger to the drivers, and maintenance the car to make
it safe for use. Yet, the major and minor maintenance service at Toyota
Huntington Beach has failed several times since 02/26/2014.
I contacted Toyota Huntington Beach as well as Toyota Motor Sales,
U.S.A., Inc. at Torrance on 8/8/2015. They promised to answer by the end
of the business day August 17, 2015. However, they did not keep their
promise. There is no explanation about the damage and warranty.
Please investigate to protect other senior citizens from this unfair and
unethical practice. Toyota Huntington Beach should recall and inspect
all the work performed by the same negligent technician on other
customers’ cars. Toyota Company around US should perform their complete
inspection as their advertisement. I would like Toyota Huntington Beach
to refund the unfair charge of $5431 (=2158+3273).
I talked to State Representative: "Most of old people and woman know
nothing about auto mechanic. They reply on dealer's advice and
inspection services for their car durable and safety. What if the change
oil is dried out within 1 week, the new part burned out within 1 year ,
wrong parts .... due to negligent mechanic ? Is it ok? .... Friendly
service and bad quality are different stories .... "
