We must have an unusual dealership because the mechanic told me it was covered under the drive train warranty. He said this after I said I was relieved I got it in before the 3 year. I was surprised when he told me that, but hey, what's good for him is really good for me. At least in this circumstance.

Thank you for the back up. The guy threw me when he poo pooed my reply that the water pump was covered under the powertrain (sorry I said DRIVEtrain). I knew I was correct. So, anyway, I hope the guy can talk to Toyota and get reimbursed.

Call Toyota (number in your owner's manual) if you have any problems. They can (and will) straighten out the dealership for you.

Maybe I should have the dealership verify that my water pump is the redesigned one too. I don't trust a g-d dam thing Toyota says anymore.
My car was bought on 3/31/10 made on 3/3/10 at NUMMI (last month they built cars there). This was about 1 or 2 months AFTER Toyota said we have stopped production lines to change the floor mats and install the gas pedal shim/shave the gas pedal. So, what do I get in the mail about a month after purchase? Bring your car in for the recall. Grrrrrr.
The it had the EPS issue. And now with 15.5K on it the brake pads have developed 'pad shift' which three dealers have looked at and said it's normal. Really? My car making a clunking noise every time I back up and go from reverse to drive is normal? Uh, OK. I will remember that the next time I buy a non-Toyota made car....
Maybe Toyota missed the point as to why people buy new cars. It is NOT so they can constantly bringing them back in for 'service' or 'fixes' every 6-9 months. It's supposed to be a reliable commute car. Ha!
Brake pads, EPS, water pumps, special oil filter wrench, etc.,......what a turd this model year has become IMO.

Just had the engine in our 2009 Corolla replaced (under PowerTrain warranty) as water pump failed and caused engine and associated systems to fail. We purchased this car "used" with 29,000 miles in 2011. Mechanic told me that water pumps on any 2009 Corollas that come in for ANY service are automatically checked for pre-mature failure. We are very thankful that all parts, including an entire new engine, and labor was covered by Toyota. We strongly recommend that anyone with a 2009 Corolla, that have previously had no major service, have their water pump checked. If you are outside the warranty period, replacement of a water pump is cheaper than the entire engine.
