Default Corolla dealer new car prep

I know this isn't a Corlloa group but does anyone have a list of the items
to be checked/adjusted on the new 2004 Corolla LE automatic by the dealer
before delivery?

We went to look at and drive an ordered car that had supposedly been prepped
and the tire pressure, using a properly working gauge, was 41 lbs. in one
tire and 35 in one other. I couldn't check the other two because of a car
next to it. While we were waiting for the finance guy (our salesman was busy
at the moment) to get us the sticker, he even mentioned tire pressure as one
item that was to be checked and adjusted. This might seem like a minor issue
but what else wasn't done. I have a feeling that the car was just washed and
waxed and put in the sold area.

When we sat down with the salesman I told him that I could tell that the car
was not prepped and we were not going to test drive it and to send it back
through the service department. He wanted to know which items and I refused
to tell him. I don't want someone to just take the air out of the tires.

Heeze I thougth dealer prep was removing the shipping
protective tape, washing it and installing the mats which
are shipped in the trunk. Reason they don't charge extra
for dealer prep any longer is cus there isn't any!

Same thing happened with my old girlfriend's Camry. The right front was
well above the tire's maximum allowable pressure.

One of my new car buying tips is to check everything, especially tire
pressure and lug nut torque.

You can search for the PDI sheets and get a copy of them and demand to see
the sheet for the vehicle and go over the steps. If they refuse, leave and
see a better dealer.
