    I had my heater motor and rims replaced at 58000km under warranty, the heater had the tick when it was cool out and the rims had the problem with corrosion under the paint. I'm at 110,000km now and am having the exact same problems with these parts again. The dealership said that there is nothing they can do so I called Toyota Canada and they are giving me the runaround. I understand that the truck is out of warranty but if they replaced the faulty parts with parts that have the same problems, is it not their repsponsibility to fix it?

    Wondering if anyone else has had similar issues and if they got them resolved? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My heater has been replaced once and I am hearing it coming back again. Gonna try to get it taken care of before I hit 36,000 miles and it falls off warranty. I have a frien in WA that had his replaced too. I have been wondering the same thing. It seems like they haven't done anything to actually fix the problem.
