    SSO hybrid bumper, Warn winch, RCI skid trilogy, RRW sliders, everything in the cheap/free mods thread, and of course the frame recall work.
    I thought mine had been leaking a bit earlier this summer, but wasn't totally sure. We had an epic rainstorm a few days ago and when I got in the truck it was puddled in the storage cubbies and the headliner was soaked. I shall call the dealer for some fixing! Thanks for posting the recall / service notice for us.

    I put mine through the car wash Yesterday and we also had lots of rain this Summer no leaks yet. Maybe the newer models had that problem solved.:fingerscrossed:

    Leak and mold found, on my way to pick up the rental.

    EDIT: I have this for the duration, 21 SR5 4Runner.

    Not going to lie, as much as I like my truck I'm going to hate giving this back. Looks like I found a replacement when the wife wants to give up her Chevy.

    Took mine in for an oil change and my dealer serviced mine. Not sure if it was leaking. I'm think it was a slow day and this was a way for them to get a few extra dollars.

    It's a Traverse, the Equinox big brother. I think the Equinox issues were more for the 2.4l engine not the 3.6L v6.

    It's got over 110k on the clock, no engine issues at all but the interior is starting to show it's age. Other than cosmetic that it's been very reliable, comfortable on the road and can hold a lot of gear inside as the family freeway hauler. We have no need for the 3rd row seating anymore and since we're over 100k on a Chevy I know I'm dancing with the devil now so time for it to go. I just need to convince the wife to go back to car payments again, we've been car payment free the last couple of years but now is not the time to buy.

    I had the repair done about 2 years ago when the technical letter came out. They upgraded the light and gasket, and have had no other leaks or problems. Got a call last week about the recall, and they said they still wanted to see it to "clear the recall from my VIN". good thing they did, because upon inspection by the service writer, they discovered black mold growing underneath the carpet. Solution is to completely remove all interior parts, have Serv-Pro mitigate all they can, and replace all components that cant be repaired. Process is to take 2-3 weeks, and a loaner car was provided. I'll keep yall posted.

    I called today for a status on what's going to be replaced. I'm getting new carpet and insulation for the pan but the seats and the rest of the interior will be retained. Serv-Pro will treat it tomorrow, then seal it up over the weekend, Monday air samples will be taken to ensure there are no more spores or contaminates. Once Serv-Pro clears the truck the interior is reinstalled and another sample is taken. When cleared I'll get the truck back. If I get it back next Friday it will have been three weeks.

    They gave you a loaner car, right? Three weeks would be a long time to have to bum rides…..LOL

    I just had my recall work performed a few days ago (on my 2016). No leak found, so they just did the repairs and I was done.

    It looks different now, but I didn't take any pictures and I don't really remember what it looked like before. Does anyone know if there are cosmetic differences? Or is it just shiny and new and that's what's making me think it looks different?
