Hmmmm....well I nosed around and it looks like Amazon has 2 new Virginia "fulfillment centers" located in Chesterfield and Dinwiddie counties. So they're practically in your back yard!

Daggone it....finally installed my replacement hood protector yesterday and one of the tabs cracked under the clip. Nothing broke off, but I'm wondering how long it will be before something breaks and THIS one starts bouncing on my hood. Anyone else ever have this happen?

When did you buy it? I think it should be covered under the manufacturers warranty, it should not just crack like that from a simple installation. Call the company and get a replacement.

My WADE bug deflector cracked where one of the nylon pins secures the deflector to the hood. I noticed it 11 months after purchase and use.

I called contacted WADE twice and did not receive a call back.

I e-mail Amazon.com to see what they suggest I do. They sent me a replacement before I even had time to ask for a partial refund! Talk about customer service

BTW, I am still using the damaged bug deflector; it does not move or vibrate. I guess I got myself a spare

2012 Rav4?

Sorry to dig this back up, I'm thinking about getting the Wade, but Amazon says it's not compatible with my 2012. As far as I know, there were no changes from 11 - 12, can someone confirm?

Thanks

Other than the stereo system, nothing was changed. It should fit perfectly.
