So will the Toyota Dealership here help out or will they make us do some bullshit run around to get the recall done.

And yeah, can one find out when the car was made by running the VIN number?

Carfax shows when the car was first serviced but did not give me the date of when it was manufactured.

This is what I get
Not Reported - Vehicle manufactured and shipped to original
dealer
07/21/2000 - 4 - Service Facility - Vehicle serviced

Doesn't this mean the car was made before Aug. of 2000 since they shipped the car by Aug. already.

By any change would those letter from the dealership stating that they want to buy your car be related to this issue? Or who knows it might be a sales scheme for them to trade in our Celica to Scions confused

hey Omar, did you get the recall for the 02's? i did.

it had to do with the gas tank, something about a faulty thing that could fall in the tank and could cause a fire. spineyes spineyes

yaye Recalls, free servicing spineyes

i dont think theres any use in calling Toyota yet they still have to put out the recall number and get the parts out, cant fix it if they dont have the parts called for in the recall. prolly gunna have to wait a couple of weeks

mine reads 06/00, that means i get the recall right?? its any car built before august 2000 right? (08/00)

sweet now how do i make my claim? the dealer ship i bought the car from is 1600 miles away, can i just go to the local place and holla at them???

do you think the faulty brakes could have been a factor in my car crash??? i couldnt stop and slid into a tree, it was a free job, but fuck it sucked!!! i guess the factor that comes into play is the snow and wet ground...

I just checked mine and it said 5/00. I'm not the first owner so I hope they check the current registration records. How long do you guys think I should wait if I don't get a letter in the mail?

Im thinking about going to toyota and show them the story but i think they will need legit reasons and all that crap to go ahead and service the brake parts. But who knows, might get a letter in the mail about a re-call. idunno

I have an 02 GTS I just got last week. Can anyone advise how I can tell if the recall for the gas tank problem was fixed in my particular vehicle?

I've been working 60-70 hrs. a week so I didn't have time to go to the dealer, but I called. My dealership said they as of now have no recall for any Celicas. The only recalls they have is on the Avalon years 97, man. 97-98, or something Avalon. This includes the brakes and brake booster/hose or something like that. The manger told me to bring my car in for a VIN check for recalls which I will do shortly.
