Warrenty Issue

There is nothing wrong with your alloys!!

Sorry, that's toyota's view on the matter.

I am in the process of taking the matter further with toyota. I've had eight corroded alloys in less than two years. Yet they say there is nothing wrong with them. Please pm me ANYBODY with photos details etc of your wheels. The more ammunition I have....

I am not trying for upgrades, compensation. Just for a decent warranty on your sets of replaced wheels, cos at the moment when your three year warranty is up, good luck to you.

I dont know how many of us have been through this - just keep hassling them - I know that I had a new set, Knightrider has had two new sets (for different cars) and many others ...

All I did was phone to say I was coming and make them demonstrate to me that they could clean away the marks (which the obviously couldnt) - then it was a case of them ordering in the new ones and swapping them - no charge.

I had the alloys replaced on my Celica twice; dealer was more than happy to do them on both occasions.

That was before the car was 3 years old. Are you saying you're trying to get them replaced after it's 3 years old? I'd be very surprised if they'll do that. Alternative option is to get them refurbed and coated properly. That'll cost you about 200 to 300 but should be a good long term solution.

unless you really really want the standard alloys, its not worth refurbishing them. if you stick with 15" you can get a nice new aftermarket set for under 300

What I'm asking them is:

Are the wheels defective(in which case they are renewing defective parts with defective)

Or do toyota alloys corrode in less than a year(which I'm sure they cannot admit to).

I have asked for a catorgoric answer to the above questions. Lets see what happens.

As I say, I have had eight which have corroded in less than a year. I'm having a new set fitted tomorrow and I have less than a year left on my warranty.

Surely a big company like Toyota can make decent alloys!!!!

I (as said on previous topic) have had a escort conv for 7 years. The alloys are perfect. My wife has a clio with 6 yr old fox aftermarket alloys. Not a mark. I use the escort in EXACTLY the same places as the rav.

Why should we put up with substandard goods?

My warranty ran out in September and to date I’m on my third set so when these start bubbling I’ll be knackered, then it will be time to look for some 17” DECENT alloys.

By the way they even replaced the last set with slight scuffing on the front rims, so don’t let them B.S. you that they are damaged ;)

UPDATE:

Went to toyota and said that they will change them FOC as the car is still under warrenty....dident even have to argue with the Service advisor, as soon as he saw them he said, yep...well book the car in and change them for you.
