    I've been battling it for months with Toyota motorcorp. I filed corporate claim in sept. Today I found out via the executive offices from Jim Lentz Office that my claim is being denied. I had the howl/whine at 50-54 MPH on the rear differential. I provided them with two independent shops inspections and they basically shrugged their shoulders and said " so what". I think the exact words from the executive offices were " Yeah. Thats a independent shop" I even asked them how can you ensure my safety?? " It's been well documented". Ha. So in essence I have to wait for complete failure if it does occur. I even showed them various invoices from here on Tacoma World where other members have the same situation and had their differentials replaced under WARRANTY. I guess that " WARRANTY" is worthless, unless it grenades on itself and the vehicle is inoperable.

    Even though the shop foreman acknowledged it, Field Service Tech. The FST is the coffin sealer on the deal. His notes stated" Normal characteristic at this time".

    Toyota is a disgusting company. Rant off.. I'll be looking into lemon law next. I have all my paperwork needed.

    I took the truck to TWO driveline/differential shops. They both say the contact pattern/ or pinnion bearing is what is making the noise. But they need to take it apart to inspect further. Emailed my service adivsor and emailed executive offices that document on a email CC. They dont care. Amazing.
