Great, Toyota must have had a reason to limit it to nine years. Mine started failing on the 10th year. F Toyota. Obviously the part is faulty, why aren't they being held accountable for crap parts? It also locks my key into the ignition since it can also effect the ability to turn the car off. i had to wait in a commuter lot this morning for almost any hour and watch each bus go by as i tried getting it to power off. My next car was going to be a Prius this summer, but I will get a Chevy Volt instead.Same here, I missed by a year. it's the reason I will never buy a Toyota again, their customer service is terrible.
