It is acceptable for you to expect go through (2) transmissions on a family owned and operated mini van to get 150K miles out of a $40K "luxury" vehicle?
First transmission was "replaced" at 57K, under warranty.
Currently at 148K miles. Facing a $2000 bill from the Toyota dealer for a transfer case seal repair.
Called Toyota. Assigned a "Case Manager", Dan. He states since there is no service record with Toyota after drive train warranty expired and the car has 148K miles, Toyota is not accountable. He would not transfer me to a supervisor and hung up on me. I called back and am waiting for a return call from a "Supervisor".
Our first and last Toyota purchase.
Comfortable interior space, JBL soundsystem, handles well
Drive train reliability, gas mileage, sliding side doors and rear tailgate problems
