Customer service policy

Dear sir, My wife and I recently bought a 2010 Camery SE at a dealership about 25 miles from our home because it was the only one around in the color we wanted, (barcelona red)My wife ordered a tube of touch-up paint from a dealer nearby, (4 miles) from our home. When she was called that the paint was in she went to pick it up and was told by the head manager that since we did not buy the car from them that we could not bring it to that dealership for any service. He was very forceful in this assertion, almost angery. Is this a Toyota policy. It would be a very strange policy if it is, almost as strange as this managers attitude. We would like an address in which to send a written complaint outlining this strange event and the name of someone in charge that can look into it. There is much more to this than what is mentioned here and we are seriously considering contacting a lawyer if no one gets back to us on this. Sincerely Mark and Diane 508-333-6151
