    Ya, same here. I avoid the dealership at all costs. And will avoid it more and more after my experience with the frame swap.

    im in the same boat, but i never had a problem with the gas pedal on both trucks but just did them anyways but when i do go for a recall i make sure i kno someone i can depend on thats working at that dealer and most of the times im watching them work on my truck not waiting in the waiting room. i figure ill just get some recall done on the truck but hey @ 243k no recall have been done and the frame looks way better than my gray one .. im impressed

    No fun when you can't press the gas and the brake at the same time. No heel toe. No burnouts. No fun. Now that you have the pedal recall done :(

    Yep, class action lawsuit is still going. I got a notice in the mail today. It says to go here: http://www.toyotaframesettlement.com/
    I havent had any out of pocket expenses in fixing or replacing the frame. Local dealer looked up my VIN and said it was previously inspected and passed.

    Dropped my 06 X-Runner off at the dealer yesterday for frame replacement, hoping they don't mess it up too much. Should be a week to 10 days to see how it turns out. Toyota Canada approved full frame replacement in July and it just got here a couple weeks ago. If it doesn't turn out well I may sell in the spring, otherwise I should be good for another 10 years ;)

    Complete replacement and over a month later without any issues. My cost was $276 Canadian, Toyota Canada paid over $14,000. New rear leaf springs and shocks, upper and lower front control arms included, all brake lines, hardware. I only had to pay for maintenance items ( Coolant flush and fill, etc). Overall very pleased and hope to get another ten years out of it! Once all the salt is off the roads I will wash and undercoat it inside and out. Gotta make it last !
