#1 of 4 Sienna Transmission
Jul 20, 2011 (5:33 pm)
I have a 2006 Sienna that just had a new $4000 tranmission installed because the mechanics said 1 of the gears was comprised of "bad metal" and basically disintegrated leaving metal shards throughout the transmission. I'm amazed that there is no dealership or corporate interest in backing up thier product. All you hear from them is "your beyond th warranty and did you have it continually serviceda t a dealer. Is their any recourse for the consumers?

The U151E is a good transmission, too, so that's pretty uncommon.
It's better than the U660E that replaced it. That got complaints about hesitation, especially the year it came out.
Sorry to hear it.
I take it no extended warranty? Not in the 5/60 powertrain standard coverage?

No extended warranty just a new transmission and no interest whatsoever from the dealer or Toyota. The Trasnmission guy said he never saw anytig like this before based on the damage from the 1 failed gear. He said it was bad metal becasue all the other parts where fine.
