    Just called today telling them I had a harsh ride and theres very little arc in my leafs (there really is, almost none), and I said I called the toyota customer service hotline and told them this and they said something about a rear spring tsb, and that I should call my dealer about it. I told the guy at the dealership i have an 07 tacoma, still under warranty, yatta yatta, and asked him about the tsb. He said to call and schedule an appointment for an inspection when I'm ready. He said the inspection will cost $90 to see if i need it and if it's covered under warranty they will refund the $90.

    Anyone have experience doing this with toyota of HB? Is there any chance they say I'm fine and deny it and I'm out 90 bucks? Does every dealership charge $90 for the inspection?

    I'm not a Toyota machanic, but $90 for a guy wearing a shirt with a Toyota logo on it to "visually inspect" sounds like a load of crap! I'd get ahold of Toyota stat!

    toyota of HB is a joke, take it to south coast toyota over on harbor, it's only 10 minutes away and a much better dealership.
