Glad to hear! You said you're getting a black #9 also, right? At least 2 in one city...pshady said:is it safe to assume that this affects only older '04 Priuses? I'm picking mine up this Sat.
Got a call back. Service manager said it'll take the better part of a day. Just bring it early, rent a car and they'll call me in the evening. And it's totally covered by the warranty (all but the rental) so all in all not a bad deal. Probably go in next week early. He recommended Mon-Thurs. Seems standard for the service departments around the country, but specifically for this location.bradca21 said:I have just contacted my local dealer's service department. Faxed him a copy of the TSB I was referring to and he's calling back shortly to let me know how long the process takes.
I'll keep you all informed
A TSB is not a customer opt-out. It is a customer opt-in (a fix for a specific reported/observed problem).BIF said:I have a question about this TSB. My car's VIN falls into the range of the "filler pipe only" fix (btw, for the curious amonst you, I got my car fresh off the boat in April, 2004).
I am not unhappy with my car's performance, nor with the accuracy of the gas guage on my car. So my first-blush reaction is to avoid having this work done on my car.
Actually, I am strongly opposed to having any non-essential work done by any service department. It just increases the odds of something major going wrong. (sorry service guys)
So my question is this: Is the filler pipe fix absolutely necessary? If I decide to avoid doing this work, what bad thing(s) might happen to my car? What about the honoring of my warranty for future problems? Does my "opt-out" put me at risk for future work-avoidance by dealer service departments?
Thanks in advance!
Sounds like it might be at least an overnight task; i.e. drop it off day 1, they read the odometer, call it in and overnight it for replacement on day 2. I'm considering having this done during my next week off work, dropping it off on a Monday and picking it up when it's "done right".EL010-04 page 2 said:1.
