problem #3

Jan 012004


  • 90,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Toyota Sequoia SR5. During routine maintenance at 60,000 miles, he was advised that the entire rear left and right axle assembly was corroded. The left and right rear axle assembly, and the oxygen sensor were replaced under the warranty. In 2004 the failure resurfaced. The cost for the repair was $3,000. However at 90,000 miles the garage discovered that the under frame carriage was severely corroded. A sand blast might correct the failure, but it was not guaranteed. He contacted the manufacturer. The manufacturer stated they were aware of premature corrosion, but they would not provide assistance. The failure mileage was 60,000. The current mileage was 90,000.
