I have two rear taillights with the condensation problem and one of the daytime running lights with condensation, so looking to get those replaced once they have new seals.

Tail light condesation has been my only issue, Stampede Toyota states there is not a single TSB released for the car yet, I have me tail lights smoked so im eithe waiting for the TSB to be posted or doing the DYI.

Id go to the dealer and ask them to test drive yours VS there demo car ?


Cheers

I had my fender adjusted because it came sitting out from the door from the factory, but that's it. Got 17,000 km on it now, and tomorrow it will be a year old.

I saw condensation in the tail lights once, but never before or since, so I'm just keeping an eye on it.

I went to sherwood park toyota about the chirping and the replaced it no problem. It even states diagnosed and replaced HPFP as per TSB so 100% Stampede is full of shit that there are none up here.

All the ones in the states should apply to Canada too but there might be something of a delay perhaps

Edmonton might be a bit of a drive for basic maintenance :p

I was hoping at least one dealer would be mod friendly but I doubt it, I think I'm on my own for anything warranty related soon

Stampede is 'mod" friendly.. They have a bunny FRS on the build and its vortech supercharged and another fbm stage 1 turbo FRS as well. (I think it's fbm)
I haven't done service there so I don't know about that department.

As for TSBs goes most service advisors don't know wtf to do .. I printed a tsb and took it in and they all gave me the "wtf is this" look. Then they played the its for the US only card and since then I haven't bothered asking .

Hell I do all my own oil changes every 3000km and have reciepts to prove i bought the oil and filter from the dealer.. but for the warranty I had to take it in for one at 8k... and dude asked me if it was a v6 or v8. I wanted to punch him.

I may find a local shop and get them to work on the car from now on.

Yeah I know they have a vortech frs so maybe if something goes wrong I'll try them. Unlikely but probably still my best bet in Alberta

Yeah you can. Provided your lights can be seen illuminated through the tint in daylight.

What color car?

That is strange. I had my tail lights replaced by Heninger and they had a TSB. They explained the part of TSB was to check for irregularities around the hole the light fits into because they would have to fix at the body shop first if needed. My tail lights were full of water so they would have to do the work regardless. This was is Nov 2012.
