    It depends on the state you are in. I have far exceeded my attempts. Also, define failed repair attempts. Sometimes manufacturers try to get cute and say something is “normal” and that it wasn’t a failed attempt. If you show up to the dealer, the truck makes it way back to the shop, and leave with the same issue, it’s a failed attempt. I even had a former dealer try to not document my visit on one I LL’d and I just took a pic of him and the shop. I won and they bought it back and then some. I’ve been an attorney over 20 years so I’m not that worried about the shenanigans. Toyota has been disappointing lately with regards to their lack of accountability for this issue. I plan to help them fix it. Best of luck to you but I won’t be able to talk about this issue for a while. Take care!

    Maybe I got lucky. Had the whine since new, never been too loud but annoying.

    Got the TSB done about 10k miles ago, it quieted down to the point it was barely noticed during regular driving. Just got new tires recently at 22k miles and I just noticed I haven't heard the whine for awhile. Tried to reproduce it with the radio off, windows open and then closed. Mine is gone/quiet enough where road noise drowns it out.

    New tires aren't even that loud as I got Michelin defender ltx. I did a search and found others where new tires didn't do anything, kinda a mixed bag.

    I just got the rear end replaced on my 2018 Offroad....the noise is still there. It may be a little quieter, but it isn't much. They did manage to add more adhesive to my hood and it doesn't flop anymore, but they also added a slight dent in the same area, ughh.

    None of their fixes did anything for the fuel pump noise I have over 20 mph.

    Is the fuel pump noise the oneyou hear when you open the rear cab sliding window?

    Sounds kind of like a hiss/woosh amidst sloshing liquid. I thought it was my pinion bearing or something. It comes out of the soace between the cab and the bed. It only sounds once over a certain speed.

    Yes, I only hear it with the rear window open. It sounds like an old dying or super cheap electric fuel pump to me. Much like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3qpcnGl7sk only not near as loud.

    It only seems to make noise over 20 mph and you can hear it all the way up to 75 or so where the wind noise drowns it out. If you pop it into neutral it still makes the noise.
