Hello all, new to the forum and posting for the first time, been lurking on the site for quite awhile to see if any one has had clutch issues.
Several weeks ago I was on vacation - about 150 miles from my dealer. All of a sudden started having trouble shifting. Went to the closet dealer to have it looked at, ended up a spring on the clutch disc broke. Bought the truck new and bought the x-tended warranty. Well guess what - clutch isn't covered. Very, very disappointed. I am still trying to get my dealer or toyota to pick up the 800.00 tab. I might add that I am very easy on the truck and the p-plate and clutch were not "burned" in any way. This is my 3rd toy and it might be my last - hard to beleive that toyota won't stand behind there product - it has 47,000 on it. Last 2 trucks had over 150,000 before the clutches went.
I beleive I am correct that those springs only hold the disc to the shaft. Does anybody know what a driver could do to make this part fail prematurely??? Any advice on who to contact????
