    I only have 6000 miles on "Taco" and other than I-10 Toyota driving over pylons and scratching the front bumper, skid plate and undercarriage. The very common AC blower motor squeak / clicking now the passenger side window has all the mechanical parts broken off inside the mechanism or motor. The window does not stay straight while rolling up / down and the "BANG" while I try to roll it up and down almost sounds like someone hitting the window with a ball peen hammer. I am surprised that it has not broken as the motion is so violent. I am scared to take it back to I-10 Toyota as their service workers obviously have no concern about taking care of your vehicle as if it is your own. I guess I need to find another dealership service department.

    I love "Taco" but she might be showing signs of issues to come later on. I wish I could "Lemon Law" her right away and get a new one, hopefully with no issues. I still love her more than "Doh", my 2002 Dodge Ram 5.9 gasser I traded for "Taco". I will never go back to a Chevy, Dodge, Ford as all 3 have let me down. My Wife's 2007 Dodge Nitro SLT is the biggest POS I have ever own. It recently deployed the side air bags and not the steering wheel bag. Since my Wife cannot recall if they deployed because of her crash or if they deployed before causing the crash because my Wife suffered a concussion from hitting her head against the steering wheel. She only remembers waking up in the ER.

    I am about ready to find a '60's era Volkswagen like I had before, 1964 Notchback that I regret selling. Every time it had an issue I was able to repair it myself with little or no cost to me.

    Sorry about venting so much, but I truly enjoy this forum. I have done my best to be helpful to other members on here with repair and customization help. I guess just searching for some positive support and to talk me out of getting rid of "Taco".

    Hmm. I've had very few problems with my truck. Had the blower motor replaced and the spring TSB done but that's it. I'm sure they will fix the window under warranty. Good luck.

    That's why they have warranties .. because there's always a given percentage of failure in everything. Get it fixed and you should be good to go. But yeah no question any new vehicle is going to cost more to maintain and fix than that old V-dub. Personally I miss my old 4Runner for the same reasons. My Taco is more comfortable, capable, dependable and certainly safer. But it has more things to break. Like an air conditioner! Never had one of those before. :)

    Fan squeak and a jacked up window motor is nowhere near grounds for a Lemon Law case. Have your dealer replace it and keep moving......
