    Sorry to hear about the way things are going for you Ned-But you can't really blame the Toyota folks for everything else..That's just a good way to get pissed off before you talk to them and that doesn't help anyone.

    The harsh ride TSB- You are out of warranty- If they say no...That's really it-Shocks can wear out in 36K miles all by themselves under heavy use...so...again..it sucks..but it's what happens.

    The light in the dash- Is it an ABS light or an Air Bag light?? Either way I would get it looked at ASAP. Having either of those systems not working correctly isn't a good thing...ABS won't fire if you need it while the system is in error. ABS is squirrelly enough as is...if it's in error...I doubt it will engage.

    But having stuff showing as in error....Not a good thing to drive around with... Good luck with everything else

    the compass/temp gauge is an easy fix, i think theres a write up on it... just unscrew it and open it, then solder the fuse, saves you alot of money and its quick
