    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Has anyone had their air bag repaired/replaced? Looks like our 5th gens are on the Takata list.

    Just heard that Toyota has added more vehicles to the air bag recall effective January 9th 2019. I checked my VIN and it's on the list so I thought I would post this for the rest of you to check and see if yours are included.

    I use MyCarfax to track my maintenance... I just received a recall notice, I called the number below and Toyota connected me with a local dealer... mine is going in on Monday. I'm sure if you need it they will tell you according to the VIN.

    They said about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs... I think mine only required Zone A to be replaced, so I suppose some may need more?

    That is a perfect reason to relocate, closer to the mountains of course!

    Dropped it off at 7 AM yesterday and they call me a 2 PM and said the replacement part was "deformed" and they would have to reorder the part and have me come back in 2 weeks. It appears that the 4-5 hours includes several hours it just sits and waits for a mechanic.
