I'm confused... initial recall was over 700,000 now 337,000 need clarity on this. It would be nice if they give this the correct fix ie.. still allowing for rear adjustments.Am I missing something? Is this a recall to the recall of the recall?
Toyota recalls older models with recurring suspension issues | WNYT.com
I had the recall done 3 times...one TSB. It does not show for me on safecar or Toyota's site. There needs to be clarification on this. Question: did you have the recall done the last time?It is on Safecar for my RAV4's VIN and also on the Toyota owners website. Maybe yours isn't included in this recall.
No recall CSJ was the replacement of arms:No I have not taken it in for the previous recall. That was recall I.D.# CSJ where they would put epoxy on the tie rod end nuts. The tie rod threads could have corrosion if they were torqued incorrectly after getting an alignment. My RAV has never had an alignment. I inspected my tie rod nuts and threads and there is no corrosion. The recall just issued is I.D. # G0V. It says that the dealer will replace BOTH suspension arms and do an alignment. I plan to have this done. I read this somewhere " Due to limitations in parts, the recall remedy will be launched in phases. " This may be the reason some owners VIN doesn't show up on the Safercar or Toyota owner sites.
Ok thanks CRM this explains what they are doing. They are rounding up everyone that has not had the arms replaced and try and get them to do this band-aid fix.Thanks for the additional information. Recall G0V reads like they're throwing in the towel on all previous repairs and now will replace both suspension arms. I don't know how many RAV4's get new arms but it sounds like a big deal. It says it takes 3 hours to replace arms. Here's the link.
Funny...but I don't usually go to the dealer for oil changes. But it seems ours is going in for a recall with about the same frequency of an oil change(low mileage) so I've just been having them do it while it's in...beneficial for Toyota dealers since those who go to dealers for recall work likely will also have servicing work done at the same time. :wink
Yes , I think you are all finished with this recall. Based on what I have read your arms were replaced because they had already started to rust so it was to late to just apply epoxy to keep the water out.During the last recall of the recall my dealer replaced BOTH arms. Does this exclude me from this recall?
