It won't become a recall unless it is considered to be the cause of an accident or the Feds require it.

Sorry... no help for those of us out of warranty.


If i had the dtrl, id leave them on till the truck burnt to the ground on the highway..

It's not Toyota, it's your dealer.

The dealer service department is who decides if something will be repaired under warranty or not.

They ARE on this forum. They don't post, but they read and report what is being said. GM has 35 employees who's job is to monitor Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, and other Social Media resources.
Serously? They do that? Where can I read bout this GM info you know of?

I wonder if they frequent the 'Funny Pictures' of the forums while at work.

i disagree re; its the dealers fault . if your a dealer and your not 100% shure your gona get reimbursed by toyota what incentive does he have to make hundreds of repairs. toyota corporate is calling the shots. remember the majority of the affected are well passed 3/36000 warranty.

It was on the news a few months ago.

But it has always been somewhat obvious that there is a presence. Features/problems discussed on popular forums are suddenly implemented, or in the case of members on Dieselplace, dealerships apparently haveing advance knowledge of modifications done by members when they go in for service.

Well of course if the truck is out of warranty it's not going to be covered.

But if it's in warranty and the dealer is refusing to perform the repair, that is a problem with the dealer, not Toyota.
