Valve spring recall

Owners of 2013 models can expect a letter from Toyota by the end of December. Only certain 2013 VIN numbers are affected. I am a service manager for a Toyota dealership.
25,300 cars are affected. March 12- July 13 cars.

Also, odds are good that Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will come out on top vs. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Stay tuned.

So you are saying, not all cars produced from March 2012 to July 2013 are affected. I bought my Fr-s June 10, 2012, I hope I'm not affected. I've driven less than 70,000 miles and still running strong! All I can do now is to wait and see if I get a recall letter.

Great contribution. You should probably sit this one out.

The way I read the bulletin is that just those cars are affected.

I think you will find that you are getting all this flak because you are very, very, very, late to the party with this info. There are already at least 4 threads on the subject with a couple going into great depth on the info.
