I bought my 2000 with 54,000. Replaced both manifolds under warrenty at 58,000. The ticking was there when I bought the truck, but due to my ignorance did not realize what it was until after the purchase. At least the warrenty covered it.2garfields said:Year 2000 with 51K on the clock, should I be worry?
Try a different dealer. the first one I went too (toyota of North Hollywood) told me it was not covered. But the second one (Keyes Toyota in Van Nuys) said that absolutly it was covered and they did the repair without question.Coastal said:i have a 2000 with 55k miles and a cracked passenger manifold - Toyota has told me I am SOL - its only covered under the 3/36 warrenty. I dont think the failure rate is small as there is a TSB for it.... they just dont want to pay to fix it - or at least Gulf States Toyota doesnt want to pay to fix it.
They get paid but don't get thier usual profit for parts or the "normal" $85/hr shop rate. If they are already swamped with "paying" work they might not be interested. Thats why you may have to shop around for a dealer interested in the warranty work.sethos1 said:Dont the dealers get paid (by Toyota) if they do the repair under warrenty? What is their hesitation to do the repair? Just thinking out loud.
