An ongoing problem. They replaced all parts in the rear suspension that they possibly could. Lemon Law Complaint started. Toyota settled out of court for $2,000... This after spending Mucho $$$ to try to fix it. We are still driving the car.
The car is now history. It was traded in and is now someone else's problem. We received our check from Toyota and kissed it good bye. Never figured out what the cause of the problem was.
At 19,700 miles rear wheels had alignment issues. Both rear wheels needed shims to correct the alignment. After a lot of efforts by myself the Toyota company agreed to pay for the parts (shims) and labor. I paid for alignment.
No other problem so far.
Replacement of worn regular shocks and struts with heavy duty, lifetime-warrantied ones, partly due to regular commuting at very cold temperatures (down to -40C) on ice rutted roads with heavy passenger loads.
Also asked to perform state inspection, found tie rod ends needed replacement which also necessitated a front end alignment.
Bearing noise coming from engine compartment. Power steering pump and drive belt tensioner needed to be replaced. First shop wanted $750, Toyota dealer wanted $1240, local vocational school did the work for $450
Replaced power steering pump with used part. $80 vs $425
