Actually, the member I had in mind when I typed this was Kaotic, but the price I had in mind was edmscan's (the only poster quoted more than Kaotic). No other alternate choice makes sense for either given two each of that one item, but it's too bad their rates aren't more in line with what others are seeing. It's a negligible amount of money, but it's still irritating.

New bolt on the left, and old bolt on the right. Just some surface rust on the threads and on the washer. This was after 90k miles.

Yes, I don't wear gloves when working on cars. LOL

Wow. Is Toyota One in the vicinity of 27th and Broadway, or is there no longer a Toyota dealership in that area?

Vallejo...where I bought the car new from the showroom...where, when I went back after modding my car some, was asked by some salesmen, "Is that a Scion?"


Also, where my family bought all of our cars from...our 1994 (or 1995) Corolla (gone), 1999 Camry, my sis' Prius and Prius C, my aunty's 2005 Camry, my sis' Rav4 (gone), and I'm sure other family members bought their Toyota's there too.

That is sad. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in a product that the sales rep doesn't recognize his own product. Perhaps the management of the dealership doesn't care about that, thinking Toyota 'sells itself', or thinks most customers won't care about the level of product knowledge that members of the sales staff possess.

I hope, with all of the business your family has given that dealership, that you've gotten good deals. A friend of mine in SoCal bought 7 Nissans in about an 8 year period from the same dealership. By the 4th one on, including holdbacks, the dealership was only making about $50.00 on each car. The dealership was willing to take these deals that my friend demanded because he got all of the service done at the dealership. They always gave him a free loaner car and friends would buy from that dealership, saying my friend referred them.

We've gotten deals on almost all of our cars. We've always paid under MSRP for them.

If it weren't an aftermarket dealer option on my car (power windows/locks, that was crap), they would have made $0 on my car. lol. Actually, I don't think they get any money from the third party, do they?

Has anyabody had any luck getting this bolt replaced by dealership before it actually breaks? I just got the extended warranty packet and it does not seem that they will do a replacement unless it is broken. Seems like a much easier job if done as a preventative. I might just change them out myself so I don't have to worry about it breaking after the warranty period.

Yeah, they would have marked it up from their cost, but it doesn't sound like it stands out to you as a large amount....so they probably didn't make that much. However, you didn't mention anything re a holdback, so Toyota may have paid the dealer an incentive that would be invisible to you. The dealer might make money from that, but it would come out of Toyota USA's pocket, not yours.

No clue. I got my car for $15,060, but $1,400 of that was that lousy Autohaus "power package."

What a complete waste of 20 minutes! I just did mine, and the old ones were perfect.

But I guess the piece of mind is worth something.

Warranty Enhancement Notice

I received one yesterday. It covers Yaris' from late 2006 to early 2011. It is for abnormal noise coming from the front end caused by corrosion forming at the base of the Front Suspension Lower Arm No. 2 Bolt Head. If no noise yet, they are extending the warranty on this bolt head to 7 years, 100,000 mile from first use.

I think I will have this looked at during my next dealer oil change - soon.

Anyone else get this? Am I reporting this in the correct forum heading?
