So how do we qualify for this?

I got an 00GTS and the brakes sucks fat ass. It clicks when braking reguarlarly at times, and it sounds like crap when braking on reverse.

Do I just call my dealership or something?

Aye Rich, you are getting a new tranny?

basically they are only changing the master cylinder an booster, the part that is under your Hood that gets pumped by ur break pedal, there is a common problem with master cylnders that the o-ring between the back of them and the booster can leak, the 2000 has that problem because of some sort of chemical they used when puttin them together, however not all are effected, if you dont have any break fluid leaking (seeping) out onto the side of you booster than they will not replace anything because there is no problem.

just got back from the dealer, no visible leaks, but they were unable to check the brake lines for air b/c my car was too low to get on any of their lifts. frown rolleyes i guess i'll just have to hope it's not been cleaned up since i bought the car used.

I just got my letter last night but get this, I called the Toyota Corp number listed on the NHTSA report back in October and they said there was no recall on my VIN#. Then WTF are they sending me a notice 3 months later for? I think it's stupid and I'm not in any hurry to get this checked out. Nor am I even thinking about having a resistor put in my car because some jack-off thinks my DRLs are too bright! Ok I just had to let that out smile Good luck to everyone else and all these damn recalls!
