    Well, I'm relieved. I was one of those guys who paid to have the spiral cable replaced on my 2007 before the recall came out. Just got my second recall letter letter a couple of weeks ago. Sent in my repair bill from dealer and proof of ownership. Just got my check today from Toyota for $410. At least they made good on this part of the recall letter. Hope everyone else has just as good of luck!!

    Yeah, got a second letter too saying parts was a plenty now but light isn't on and I am leaving well enough alone. If the light comes on then I'll take it in but not before. Would much rather have them hand me the part vs. any uncaring underpaid rookie they assign to this task hacking on my truck. Had too much of that shit with the 05 when they were chasing all the seal leaks and not getting my money due to the drivetrain warranty....loose/missing bolts, loose harmonic balancer, broken wiring harness clips and brackets, broken tabs on intake for vacuum hose routing, time wasted there getting them to try and fix what they left undone, time wasted trying to fix again what was still problem, trying to keep them from stealing my original nice thick oem all weather mats, trying to keep them from chopping my gas pedal from that idiot TSB....the list goes on and on. No fuckin thanks.

    There's no way doing this recall will change the way your steering feels.

    Kinda like when you change your oil or change the muffler and you feel you have more power.

    I know, it's all in the perception. I have had many customers tell me how much better their vehicles run after doing no more than an oil change, I just thought his statement was funny and that he might be joking.

    Nah. It's only a gain of 700.

    I got my second letter and have it scheduled for replacement next week.
    We will see how it goes as my 4x4 just quit so I am going to have them look at that as well. It seems like this truck has been nothing but problems :(

    I'll not buy another Toyota unless it is built in Japan.

    Good luck with that. I forget which one exactly, but we were just informed that Toyota is coming out this year with a vehicle (corolla i believe) that will be made 100% in America with 100% American parts. Not many of these companies building cars in their own countries anymore.

    So I made an appointment two weeks ago for today and dropped off my truck at 8am to get the clock spring replaced. I get a call later this afternoon saying they didn't realize that they don't have the part in stock due to the volume of repairs. When I go to pick up my rig I guess I will find out what is going on.

    HA! I had the exact same problem. Called and made an appointment for an oil change and for the spiral cable recall.
    dropped the truck off, when it was done, they told me they did several other recalls, but the part wasn't in for this one, so I was going to have to make another appointment once the part came in. they reflashed my ecu so that if the brake and gas were pressed together, it would idle. then they cut my gas pedal. Never asked me if I wanted that done. Guess I don't care too much, but I have weathertech floor liners in my truck, so the gas pedal getting caught thing wasn't even an issue.
    Had to make the second appointment for a saturday. that was the day we brought home the wifes new prius. LOL.

    Took my 07 in yesterday for both the spiral cable and the floor mat recalls. They had trouble with -- guess what -- the floor mat procedure. Had to keep it overnight and offered me a free loaner, even with no more warranty.

    Not sure exactly what but it sounded like they were having trouble with some network connection in trying to perform the ECU re-flash part of procedure. I was a little concerned till they called this morning saying all done.

    Guess it's only fair to give a shout out, since they also get badmouthed a lot. Lowe Toyota, Warner Robins, GA.

    Floor mat recall is twofold.
    They trim your accelerator pedal, and they reflash the ECU.
    Their Techstream needs to connect to corporate to download the latest flash.

    Incidentally, the ECU reflash eliminates your ability to do a burnout by "power braking"... not that it matters.
    At 25% or 35% throttle and above, if the brake pedal is depressed, the ECU knocks the engine down to idle.
