So I took my 2022 Prime SE in to the dealer for the 10k service and upon returning it to me, they said the tech believed the bearing was bad in the water pump for the gas engine as it was making excessive noise. They wanted to replace under warranty but had to order parts. I took it back for that service, and then they said that while they were in there doing the water pump, they noticed an oil leak from the valve cover and sent me a pic of a drip from the corner of the head and they wanted to replace that under warranty as well. I had them go ahead and do the work, but the whole thing just weirds me out. I wanted to see whether anybody here had heard anything about early failures of the engine water pump or valve cover gasket? I honestly suspect that the oil drip they saw was just a spill than ran down from when the tech had filled it up during the oil change, but I also didn't want to decline warranty service and then later have it come back to bite me in the future in the case of a larger failure. Also worth noting they returned the car to me reeking of gasoline. They advised that they had to take off the fuel rail for the valve cover which makes sense, but they must have spilled a good amount because it stank for days.
The whole thing is just giving me a sour taste on the car. I don't like the idea of having multiple unrelated parts fail so early, and I never really trust sealant/gasket applications done after production as much as the original ones.
Also worth noting I had them do the TSB for the blind spot monitors that get stuck on and it has not fixed the problem.
Anyone else heard of these particular issues on Primes or Rav4 Hybrids?
