these aren't recalls, they are service bulletins. recalls involve pulling the product back for replacement or repair, usually at no cost to the owner and independent of any warranty or lack thereof. service bulletins are more like "if this happens, here is the cause and how to fix it" and are distributed to toyota dealer shops so that they can easily fix common known problems. usually, tsb repairs are not free unless you are still under warranty.

if its under warranty their should be no charge for the labor right?

Thank you CTScott for those TSB's (T-AC001-07) HVAC odor. I've had a stinky AC 4 months after I bought the car and Toyota said they don't warranty bad AC odors but would clean it for $150. bucks. I was at Toyota yesterday with the TSB paper. They checked the AC and that TSB is superseded by another that requires Toyota to replace the evaporator all under warranty. Thanks again CTScott

Here's the newer TSB that superseded that one:

Hi All,

I have had my Yaris Sedan for almost a year now, and this is the first summer I use it with A/C and I am getting the odor for the past 3 weeks now.

Do any of you know if the the TSB supplied by CTScott apply to all markets or only US market? I am in Lebanon - middle east and want to know if Toyota has to honor such TSBs or not.

I already went there once regarding some noise possibly from the timing belt and they said it was normal. I later found a TSB about the issue but didn't try to face them with it.

It would be a great deal of help if someone knows. that would help prevent me the hassle of going to the dealer and arguing with them about it.

CTScott

TSB's are associated with VIN ranges. If your Yaris falls within the VIN's included I couldn't imagine them saying that it doesn't apply.

Thanks to everyone who followed up with updates on this TSB. I probably would have lived with this problem for as long as I had the car had I not read it here. Still being under warranty I got it in and the parts are ordered since my vin. was in the range.

No and if you talk to Toyota "HELL" no.....I was amazed at how many of the
things on this list I had a problem with and didn't know it....The only solution
is a picket sign INFRONT of a Toyota dealership saying "I AM A DISSATISFIED
TOYOTA OWNER" Toyota has had a loss of confidence by the American consumer
and thier answer is to ADVERTISE that they are a company of integrity. The
right of a consumer to picket a dealer is paramount....that dealer, if he is
smart will not let a dissatisfied consumer stay dissatisfied. A dealer can not buy
advertising that will over come a picket. From first hand experience.....don't ask
me how I know...that is my opinion, every one has one.

You can start with checking the condensate drain hose to see if it is blocked. It is located under the front left corner of the passenger carpet. If you are lucky the stink is just due to it being plugged. If it is not plugged and the stink is due to the metal incompatibility issue of the TSB, then the only full resolution will be to replace the evaporator.

Since you have the extended warranty, I would see if you can get it checked out under that.

CLUNK NOISE FROM FRONT SUSPENSION TSB-0055-11

Some 2007-2011 model year Yaris vehicles may exhibit a noise from the area that is heard under acceleration/deceleration, when braking, or when driving over an uneven surface. NEW FRONT LOWER SUSPENSION ARMS, CROSSMEMBER ,and NO.2 FRONT LOWER SUSPENSION ARM BOLTS(2).......

This repair is in effect for 36 MONTHS OR 36,000 MILES......

I have an extended warranty.

Does it cover the stuff that says "36 MONTHS OR 36,000 MILES"?

Also, I only get fuzz when my mp3 player is plugged into the aux and powered at the same time. I remember seeing something about it but can't remember if it's under a TSB or not.

We also have the clunking noise from the front of the '08 Yaris sedan . Seems to be from the passenger side . Notice it when pulling out of an uneven surface such as parking lots ( higher slope ) onto a lower road . This has been going on for over a year . Tried to get a service to look at it awhile ago before the TSB for the U.S. and service manager said NO! This is a TSB for CANADA , so not needed . Feel like calling that service manager back and tell him there's a TSB for here now :mad: .

As for under the extended warranty . Very likely it's covered . Here's the online brochure that shows all parts covered . It's under suspension . http://www.toyotafinancial.com/consumer/ShowBinary/BEA%20Repository/tfs/en_US/document/TFS_Platinum.pdf . This is the PLATINUM plan , go here for other warranty plans , http://www.toyotafinancial.com/consumer/tfs.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=pg_NewVehicleProtectionPlan and click on VIEW BROCHURE . We plan on taking the '08 in soon for inspection . Still clunks on occasion .

The TSB instead of a RECALL is a way for TOYOTA to save money and preserve the confidence of current and potential buyers . The '07s > '09s are very likely to be beyond the 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty and that puts the financial burden on those owners . Shame on you TOYOTA !

Rockland- do you have a copy of tsb 0055-11? It would be nice to see if it applies to my vehicle.

Losing control of a car due to defectice parts can be life threatening . They are called control arms , must be a reason why .

This might help for people out of warranty.
It sounds just like a problem on my Smart car, the fix for that is to lubricate the suspension bushings. Basically the rubber will stick until there is enough torque, and then suddenly jump back to it's proper shape. Try the following:
Wash the area behind the wheel with a pressure washer(blindly spray with the wheel still on). Then jack up the car and hit all the bushing with a lot of WD40. Let it sit for 15 min, then drive it around the block. Then apply some grease(I just use spray on lithium) in another heavy coat. I do this where the control arm attaches to the hub, and to the body of the car, and hit the swaybar link bushings, and steering rod at the hub at the same time.

The tsb for the transverse motor mount is coming up as blank. Anyone have a good copy? Thanks

Took it in and they couldn't hear the clunk for a 5 mile drive . Then put it on the lift and said all looks good and the bolts are rusted but that's normal for the N.E.. Won't go back until it clunks most or all the time .

How many hours would it take for replacement of both arms if needed ?
i believe its around 5 hours total with both arms and needed crossmember...

TSB applies to ALL 07-10 YARIS.....

Thanks rockland. I have yet to mention the specific tsb to my dealership but I've mentioned a clunk the last four times I've been in. I'm at 27000miles too. They drove it 25 miles and said couldn't reproduce . I plan on going on a specific route next time to make it obvious to them.

Anyone have an idea about what sounds like an "exhale" or swishish sound when first taking off with the wheel turned? It doesn't sound like the cvs but its also disconcerting.

The service manager also said our '08 Yaris sedan isn't included in the T.S.B.. Different VIN number than those stated in the T.S.B..

I've finally now had success regarding 0055-11. I never mentioned the specific bulletin, but took a senior tech for a drive and went to a location that I can always get the car to clunk. He pulled my vin and came to me with the bulletin, I'm after the production change but the tech said he would make a case if it did not apply to my vin. Either way, parts are ordered and hopefully this will entirely resolve the clunking.

Don't confuse luck with skill. This has been calculated. Fourth time I'm returning and every time I'd mention the problem and other problems I've noticed. Proper documentation makes it easier for them to fix it. I love my car but it has been one thing after another with it from even before I bought it and both my local dealership and the dealership where I bought it know it. I'm also still under warranty.

All that aside, yes the tech was beyond decent, I'd go so far as to say excellent. All the folks there are very professional and do what they do very well; I believe that they enjoy the work they do and have genuine concern for their customers.

Just got it back from the dealer. Feels tighter and smoother over bumps. I don't know how hard it would be to do this yourself but I caught a peek at what the cost was for Toyota and I am so glad this was taken care of under warranty.

Control arm issue for other manufacturers :

1.) JEEP Liberty SUVs ; '04 > '05
2.) SUBARU ; Impreza 02 > '07 , Forester '03 > '08
3.) SAAB ; 9-2X '05 > '06

Seen it on this weeks MOTORWEEK . Here's the article , http://www.motorweek.org/auto_news/motor_news/winter_woes . Be nice if TOYOTA would just do a RECALL and not a T.S.B. that puts it in the hands of the dealer service center staff to make the call . That way , we could get something accomplished .

I am trying to get Canadian TSB's ... tried MicroImage (not on there) .. any place else I can get a copy of them ?? I was able to get the US TSB's but I don't think that my Canadian Toyota dealer will be too interested in those.

Try PMing Garm on MI. He has the zip file, but the link is apparently not working, so he just needs to fix it.
