I think on ToyotaPartsDirect it noted that the clip was used on Highlanders as well.
I know it's a long shot, but people need to gather and submit complaints to NHTSA and others to push for a recall. The corrections members have found would be simple for Toyota to put in. But with the hundreds of thousands sold per year, a logistics nightmare to get them all in for a fix.
Even the dealership who fixed mine under warranty (Mine wasn't even the first one they fixed) was beyond belief as to why Toyota Corporate had not issued some kind of TSB or recall due to the airbags and other electronics that can be affected.
I have a coworker who has an XLE who's clips failed catastrophically during an automatic carwash, we are talking water just flowing rapidly into the cabin. They took it to the dealership and they denied warranty claim due to them being a few months outside the 3/36. They escalated to Toyota Corporate and they also denied warranty.
Dealership quoted in the ballpark of 3k to fix the issue, and said they should probably just file a claim with their insurance company to cover it.
Pretty disgusting when you see the Toyota badge attached to the vehicle, which is a brand known for quality and standing behind their products.
There are a lot of average janes and joes that drive these cars and never visit a car forum like this and probably never pay attention enough to even notice water stains on the headliner. They could drive around for years and years, just oblivious that there is rust and corrosion above the headliner. Maybe their airbag system never throws a DTC, but the moment they get T-boned and the airbags don't deploy ... It kind of makes you wonder what Toyota will say then?
