Well dropped off my truck a few minutes ago. They gave me some looks but no hassle to speak of. Even have the part in stock so hopefully this will be a one shot deal. :fingerscrossed:

Good luck! I have an appointment set for Thursday so they can:
"Check my VIN and pull the code to see if I qualify. Then they have to send that info to Toyota before they will send them the part. They just want to make sure that is what the problem is. We should have the part in the next day."

Bunch of tools these people are. They just want to dick around with my truck to try to sell me something which I will quickly tell them to kiss my ass!

I looked up my VIN on the Toyota website and it indicated that it wasn't being recalled. I have an '09 which I just bought. Somewhere along the line I read that the recall was for years XX to early 2009. Perhaps mine is not an early '09??

The service records I got from Toyota (both from the Toyota dealer where I bought the truck and online) say that the pedal recall was done, but do not mention the spiral cable recall, so I am assuming it was not done. Not sure I would get a mailed recall notice since I have only been the owner for about three weeks.

Should I investigate more or assume I don't need the recall? Any thoughts? Is looking up the VIN on the Toyota website accurate?

My 'new' Taco is covered by the warranty and TSB, according to Toyota's website.

Yet I just had a so-called 'service advisor' tell me that my truck is fine and I don't need it.

I really, really wish the people that work at stealerships weren't such colossal cockbags.

Here here

In other news I finally got mine done. It really matters who the "service adviser" is. If one won't do it go back the next day and talk to a different one. I talked to 4 "service advisers" (2 at 2 different dealerships) before I got one that put it through. Thank you Matt Moeller

Part Number

Let's see if these Clocksprings that Toyota is putting in our trucks are new parts or just the old crap.. Here's the one I got, per the work order.

I don't believe anyone has because they haven't figured out how to fix the problem yet.

I'm looking at my letter right now.

Doesn't say anything about "two weeks", it just says that I will get another notification when "parts are ready and preparations are complete"

And in the next paragraph, "Toyota is currently working on the remedy, You will receive a second owner notification letter when the remedy is available"

Yep you are right my letter does not say two weeks either,must have been the guy i talked to at the local dealer who told me it might take two weeks to get a second letter,they sure didnt want to give me my money back .

I guess i dont have to worry about parts or a remedy since i already paid the $483 bucks for the repair,i just want to be reimbursed is all.

Trust me you are not the only one waiting for a refund. So far toyota's treatment of customers that paid has been non existant. I was very specifically told in my conversation with toyota hotline recall department that NO refunds will be given until remedy is found and that refund is not guarantted. Have to get all your ducks in a row first with paperwork. They owe me $505 so i feel your pain.

Actually, you still have to worry about it depending on how long you intend to keep your truck.

Your replacement part was the same part that failed, and it will fail again.

OK Rich, let me be more specific,i don't have to wait for parts or for them to decide weather they are going to fix it any way ,i already had it fixed, and IF it fails again i will fix it again whether Toyota pays me back my $483 or not. But i do know one thing ,i will never buy another Toyota.

As far as Toyota figuring out the remedy i can do that for them easy,reimburse the people who already paid to have the repair done,and then fix the ones who haven't been fixed , its not like Toyota is bankrupt.

They know what the problem is, but they don't want to repair it with a part that is going to fail down the road.

In all likelihood, they HAVE the correct repair part, and production samples are installed in a steering column in the R&D lab being twisted and tilted 1000 times an hour by robots to simulate 10 years of consumer use.

Toyota is not bankrupt, but they already had a very costly recall on the accelerator assembly. They very well could go bankrupt if they issue a general recall and the very same part starts failing within 2 years.

I think we are all for toyota improving car safety. Buuut this is where it gets very squirly. At the core... refunds only apply to a number of toyota car owners who were out of warranty and had clock spiral assembly fail.

$505 is not a walk in the park. That is like half of vacation right there. Tick freaking Toc Toyota.
