The first date is...I just purchased a 2006 Solara and am pretty sure it is included in the warranty extension. My question is, when will the extension of warranty run out? It's December 26th, 2016 so do I technically only have until December 31st to get on the list for the part or does it extend indefinitely? Toyota's website said indefinitely AND also within 10 years of first drive date (which I have no idea when that was), so which is it??
The dashpads are coming in at a more frequent rate so keep checking in with the Dealer (weekly). Also ask if they may have an unclaimed dash. We have quite a few that have come in and when the customer was called they informed the Dealer that the vehicle has been sold, so the dash was given to the next customer in line.I took my Sienna to Tustin Toyota April 2016. They said my car was in the recall and that the dash would be replaced. After I hadn't heard anything in six months, I called and they said the part still wasn't in. I just got off the phone with Tustin Toyota and they said it still wasn't in and that orders were often taking 8 months to a year. I reminded them that it was now 9 months for mine. They were nice, but not able to give me any other information or encouragement.
This is true. The extent as I understand it was for the ordering process as there is a huge backlog and they didn't want to just send all the dash's to the Dealer en masse. One reason would be storage. I can see a huge order of 300 dash's just arriving and asking the Parts Manager where he/she wants them. There is just not enough storage for all the dash's needed.Service manager said Toyota , that same day, told dealers to cancel all orders and re-enter them into a new process.
