Rear suspension arm recall - have you needed an alignment

I'm in the midst of a battle with Toyota about a rear alignment now that my car has been epoxied. I'm curious how many other people have been through this. Please reply to the poll below so we know a little more about this situation.

Rav4 suspension recall fix needs fixing

We have a 2010 Rav 4 with the suspension recall. Since the"fix" , the rear wheels have gone out of alignment twice ruining one set of tires( cupping) . After purchasing new tires we had Toyota realign wheels at our expense. Since only Toyota can do the alignment it is $250. Had the car in for our free oil change and the rear wheels are out of alignment again and Toyota wants $250 to realign the tires . Prior to the fix we had the tires aligned at the brake shop for $90. Since the fix we'll have had two alignments in six months. This appears to be a fairly common occurance if you search on-line. Can anybody say , " Class Action " . Toyota had better do the right thing re. this issue or a long time Toyota driver will start driving a Honda. We are dealing with Chuck Patterson Toyota in Chico, CA. Anyone experiencing similar issues?
