PhoS replied to sandyann's discussion TOB bad at only 52K
"Not sure how I feel about this. I'm guessing average clutch life is 50-75k depending on the driver. TOB should last as long as the clutch unless it got exposed to something it shouldn't have. If they tear the thing apart and your clutch is…"

"LT the TOB should not have gone bad so soon. I have 75k warranty. I was told I should be happy it went out while still under warranty."

"Yes. Automatic transmissions have a torque converter instead of a clutch. It can still go bad, but that'd be a different problem ;)"

"So they're doing it under warranty? That whole "we'll have to open it up to diagnose it, and you get to pay if it turns out to be a non-warranty issue" thing stinks :("

TOB bad at only 52K

I know that Shaman Rawb had an issue with this with even less miles.  I have heard the noise for a while now but when it got to the point where it was consistent I took it in to have it checked.I went to Dublin and met with Mike, same as Rawb, and he said between us he agreed with me that it was the TOB.  However, I would have to agree to a tear down to confirm.  If it was, the Toyota would pay, if not then I have to.  I took it back in yesterday for the work and Mike was not there so Louis…See More

sandyann replied to Shane's discussion So Toyota Called
"Actually I like the dark gray one but that is last years. Plus I just can't deal with the haggling. Of I really thought I could walk in get a new one with the same setup for the same amount I'd consider."

sandyann replied to Shane's discussion So Toyota Called
"So now I am getting calls from the dealership that they want to buy the FJ.  Said they could get me into a brand new one for the same monthly payment.  They even said they would transfer the lift, tires and sliders from the old one.…"

Congrats on the new purchase and welcome to the site!  I love the new quicksand color!  I'm fairly new to offloading and have only done Hollister Hills myself.  There have been some trail rides posted on the site lately now that the weather is nicer.  I'd keep an eye out for more.
