But why only the V6? Different parts? Runs hotter and rusts faster?

letter said they would either replace it with a redesigned muffler or install a cover.

I would doubt Toyota Canada would reimburse this as you did not replace with Toyota Genuine OEM parts. You went non-OEM...

If you replaced with Toyota OEM, then for sure you would get reimbused.

Just my opinion.

I just returned from the dealership. I waited for 15 minutes when they returned and said I had a leak and that they were going to order new parts.

Since the parts are not being kept in stock, supposedly because of their large size, they have to order them. I have another appointment on July 11 to install the new parts.

Hopefully there won't be a shortage of parts, and I won't end up waiting 6 months like I did for the re-manufactured transmission.

I don't think you should have any problem. The notice specifically says

lf you have previously paid to have the muffler repaired or replaced on your vehicle due to this specific condition, please contact your authorized Toyota dealership for reimbursement consideration.

If your invoice clearly shows a breakdown of the parts that were replaced, I'm sure Toyota will pay for the part in question and a reasonable labor rate to have it installed. They will probably refuse to pay for any of the other pieces that were also replaced that day.

I'm in Barrie. The service adviser wasn't even aware of the "insulator cover" described in the recall. She said ever RAV they have inspected required a replacement pipe.


Let us know what they find on your RAV, and if the parts are in stock.

well, found leak as well, replacement not in stock, order today, going back tomorrow for install. I would assume most Ravs require the replacement, unless it is a summer only car.
