Hey, the local dealer here says warrant doesn't cover. Do you know the warranty period on the intermediate steering shaft?
Same here, not covered as my time has expired, even though I am under 60K miles. I can get another mechanic to replace the steering shaft, but wanted to know if it must be done, or can it be lubed? I guess it must be replaced to be safe? shame that we as consumers need to replace this item that wears after the 3 year warranty!
I've also been experiencing this issue in my 2011 XLE. I've got just shy of 60k miles on it now. Bought an extended warranty at time of purchase. Just need to find the paperwork... For those who had this repaired, what was the cost?
My 2011 Sienna FWD got the same issue for the last 15-20K miles, now the van odo at 87K miles so i dropped it of at dealer to fix it, the service adviser acknowledged the issue and gave me a loaner. I got Toyota platinum warranty so it will be cover. Also there a TSB for spare tire carriage. I'm not sure it will be done same day as he didn't mention about parts available. For those who got it replaced, what's the part number?
