Failure Date: 01/03/2001

Front strut bracket failure causing front suspension noise, poor ride, and uneven tire wear. Previous TSB's were noted by owner. Problem fixed by dealer under extended warranty. I have concerns about this major component failure at relatively low mileage for suspension components and would have had to pay over $500 if not covered by extended warranty. Do to numerous complaints of this nature in Toyota cars, would think this is likely manufacturing or engineering defect and duty of Toyota to fix.

Failure Date: 10/01/2000

Noise from front end when road not smooth or speed bumps. Finally took to repair shop and were told strut mounts worn, bushings bad at towers. Feel for struts to fail with this low a mileage is unacceptable. We have 5 yr/60,000 platinum extended warranty and they claim it is "usual wear & tear". Is it usual to wear out in 49,000 miles. 85% probably long dist. Highway miles?.
