Had a chance to do a one on one with my rep. Everyone that still has an issue was sent to a data base. The field team has gone back out on the road again and is starting over. I know, I know they should have got it right the first time.
Be that as it may, I asked him if they were going to be trying one piece shafts or double cardigan joints. He had no additional info that he could offer at this time. It's not going on the back burner by any means. I did mention to him the results of aftermarket shafts etc and he said when they had a meeting or what ever they do he would inquire if they were thinking in this direction. Myself I think the problems started when they cheapened the shafts and went with shafts without the double joints. So for now ,untill I get some more info, I'll just keep my ears open and relay if I hear anything.
Yes please keep us informed. Ive gone ahead and started a file with Toyota Canada stating the TSB made it worse. I told them Im too busy working with my truck to play this back and forth learning experience bullshit with this dealership. Only in turn to be treated like an idiot. I told them A new dealership I would like to go to from now on and asked them to contact me when more information is available on a solution. The girl said that is unlikely. I need to relay through a dealership for any updates on the TSB.
But lets face it, tacomaworld is better for this kind of thing. Unless your lucky enough to have a great service department to deal with. So far the first one I've tried is the most unprofessional place I've ever come across, run by clueless people trying to get you in and out as soon as possible. That would be Jim Pattison Toyota in Surrey BC. Dont waste your time going there, if you want personal experiences from me hit me up in a PM and ill explain.
