Would getting yearly oil undercoating have prevented this? I think the oil would all burn off. On the other hand my muffler is painted with POR-15. But I only have an I4 so I guess it does not matter.

I own a 2006 Toyota RAV4 and the Toyota dealer of Lévis contact me last Tuesday téléphonepour a reminder about the muffler. They have changed yesterday muffler and catalyst for my rav4 free. This is a reminder number 174.

Toyota replaced the muffler on my I4 about 2½ years ago, it was rotted out to a point we could stick a finger through the side. The tech told me it was the only part on the exaust system that wasn't made of stainless steel.

Back off kids, this isn't an ice cream truck.

My experience

Had mine replaced less than a year ago, not at the stealership though, cost me just over $300. Also, I had permacoat undercoat religiously applied yearly, didn't seem to matter.
Relatives had their muffler go on a 06 v6 sport, about 3 years in, I think they ended up paying $1100 to replace their system.

As far as I understand, this is not a recall but a Customer Satisfaction Campaign. There must had been an un-usually high amount of customer complaining to Toyota Canada about the exhaust system. The exhaust system is manufactured by Walkers located in Cambridge. Know a few team members there and information from them is that, the material are not top grade to begin with.

I suppose that those made in Japan are not made by Walker.

What were they thinking? I suppose it rusts from the inside out. How many miles did you have on yours when it rusted out? So the Japanese muffler is equally bad.

So, the dealerships in Canada find exhaust leaks, don't have parts, and send you on your way? Drive with the windows down. Or you'll get REALLY sleepy.
