Steven, I suggest you forget about this recall as I have done. Living in FL, you will never have road salt corroding these parts. And once it is done, you can no longer have the rear end aligned. I've heard too many stories about how they epoxy these parts and then it's discovered that the rear alignment is off. Very expensive to have it fixed then.I received this recall last fall, but when I went to my Toyota dealership they told me they had to order the parts, and they would let me know when they came in. That was 5 months ago. Every time I call, they tell me that they are still waiting for the parts.
Rav4 suspension recall fix needs fixing
We have a 2010 Rav 4 with the suspension recall. Since the"fix" , the rear wheels have gone out of alignment twice ruining one set of tires( cupping) . After purchasing new tires we had Toyota realign wheels at our expense. Since only Toyota can do the alignment it is $250. Had the car in for our free oil change and the rear wheels are out of alignment again and Toyota wants $250 to realign the tires . Prior to the fix we had the tires aligned at the brake shop for $90. Since the fix we'll have had two alignments in six months. This appears to be a fairly common occurance if you search on-line. Can anybody say , " Class Action " . Toyota had better do the right thing re. this issue or a long time Toyota driver will start driving a Honda. We are dealing with Chuck Patterson Toyota in Chico, CA. Anyone experiencing similar issues?
Hey did you ever get anything done with your Rav4? I am having the same problem
