Crap I just checked and my frame is broken at the motor mount. yay!
.So here's the quirk in your statement - Toyota doesn't make the trans I think it's made by Mercedes but no one will tell me for sure. I do know the new trans was shipped out of Germany....
So [the manufacturer] would need to be the one doing the recall, service bulletin etc.
Very possible in today's global manufacturing. I remember being surprised when the Tacoma first came out with a GM coolant system made in Canada :lol: The GM logo on the radiator cover and Made in Canada right under it. :lol:Perhaps the manufacturing aspect of production takes place in Germany?
I'd continue to bring it in and then after several attempts have Toyota buy it back under the lemon law. That's my plan if they can't fix it.My FJ has the same damn problem! I have been dealing with this noise for 3 years now. They replaced the clutch and bearing at 20k but the noise was still there. They have greased it and lied to me and just keep f'n with me over this issue. I really am starting to hate Toyota. There is something wrong with some of these FJ's and other models. I hope Toyota figures this out because I'm tired of seeing the commercial "At Toyota our number 1 concern is safety and reliability" My Toy is 2007 FJ 6sp Ready for class action lawsuit. I know I'm only dreaming, but I can report it to the BBB.
.what i find totally unbelievable is that toyota knew about this problem in the tacoma, ignored it ......
I almost hate to say it, but if they only replaced the TO bearing, you'll probably be back in talking with the dealer in under 4k... Mine didn't last 2k after they replaced only the TO bearing.I just had my TOB replaced at 22k miles. Nothing other than the bearing was swapped. I'm thinking I will be back in another 22k miles to have the new bearing replaced.
