I must be the lucky one of the bunch. My Toyota dealer fixes all these warranty issues on my '05 Sienna in a timely and free manner. I have not spent a nickle on any issues regarding warranty, even under the extended warranty issues.

Some dealers value your loyalty, some simply don't care. With Toyota sales continuing to grow, too many dealerships have the attitude that they'll add new customers to replace those that get disgusted and never return.

I used Rich Jung to rebuild my cables and assembly. Excellent service and top notch work! Give them a call to diagnose your problem. He will help walk you through the possible issues. Price was $350 with shipping, and they have a Warranty that they stand behind (because I had to use it when breaking something when trying to reinstall my fixed assembly).

I too have been smitten. My '04 Sienna is 3 months out of the extended period. My cable shows wear that predates the warranty period and I am prepared to get legal counsel to defend my case. Has anyone gone above the local distributor to get consideration?

To be fair the vehicle is 10 years old. A Ford would have rusted to pieces by now.

Yes, I did have a problem with my power door as well. Fixed it myself with a new actuator (as mentioned on this forum). No problems since. While I am not happy I had the problem, it is the only non maintenance issue I have had with the vehicle in 7.5 years and 135,000 miles. Vehicle is still running strong.

I hear you, however this car has 50,000 miles on it. It has been well maintained and if you look at the cable, you will see this has been defective for some time; just not enough to break until this 3 month out of a 9 year warranty.
