    This issue hasn't hurt Tundra reliability and I think a lot of people are driving around with leaky towers. Not worrying about them because they don't know.

    I'll have to decide before my powertrain runs. Scary operation for a little oil. Less scary if it gets worse.

    I honestly wouldn't expect the guy at the service desk to rotate my tires either. At least at the dealership local to me, he's the guy responsible for doing all the check-in and paperwork. I "think" he is also supposed to pass any customer concerns to the mechanics in the service area....or play dumb as you said.

    - I've yet to be greeted by any Master Tech or mechanic when I pull in for service. - So my only option is to ask the service writer guy to pass along to the mechanic that I would like them to check something.....but it would be great if I could just speak directly to the person actually doing the work! Thanks to this forum, I can keep an eye on it myself since I know where to look.

    LOL, I'm sure that some of us have been to dealerships where we can't even be certain that the service writer knows what we're talking about.

    With that said, I was helping a wedding planner move some flowers and she kept referring to them by what I assume was their Latin name, and would just stand there and stare at her until she would say something like "the orange one".

    That is a sad but very true statement. Been there...
