Legend.

Can you add a total cell for BRZs/Scions and a cell the calculates the average mileage driven after the recall?

Please add this to the OP and request that everyone add their data to the spreadsheet when they make an entry in the thread!

Failure After J02 Recall: Registry Thread

Vehicle Mileage: ~70000
Vehicle Make: scion
Mileage After Recall Performed: ~72000
Symptom(s): car caught on fire during drive
Failure: yup definitely a failure
State: California
Is Dealership Offering Repair: insurance in process of paying out. Didnít even bother with talking to dealer, just filed a report with nhtsa.

-Took the car in for the engine valve spring recall at Toyota of Berkeley on Jan 29.
-Got car back, did regular commuting to work for 2 weeks, everything seemed fine.
-took car for drive up highway 1 on feb 17.
-maybe 3 hours in... drove around a turn and saw that it was down hill with two sharp hair pin turns
-tapped brake to slow down.. immediately felt rear tires give out (only going 25 maybe 30 mph btw). Saw the traction control light blink a few times (again slow speed, dry road.. no reason for traction control to engage)
-let off brake, thought, thatís interesting, coasted a little, hit brake again, same thing, traction control light blink, felt the rear end just act a little weird.. traction wise.
-thinking I may have brake issues, decided to downshift from 3rd to 2nd
-after 2nd was engaged, heard a pop, saw the hood jump up as if something inside hit it.
-still going down hill, made it around first hair pin turn, trying to see where I could park the car (highway 1.. along the coast) safely...
-coming up on hairpin 2, felt my feet and legs get burning hot.. looked down, saw flames through the window coming from driverside tire well.
-brought car to stop by hitting brakes and immediately ditched. Just filled up gas 20 miles back.
-fire spread and engulfed the entire car. Total loss

Please be safe 86ers. And be sure to report your problem to the nhtsa!

The fire is a much better outcome than spending the next few years in court. Start shopping!

Done, had to clean up the numbers so an average could be calculated... it's just under 500 miles.

Post Engine failed during drive home after recall was performed

Vehicle Mileage: 40k
Vehicle Make: 2013 Scion FR-S, A/T. Zero mods.
Mileage After Recall Performed: 40k

Symptom(s): car lurched and tried to keep chugging for about 6 seconds before stopping, no major leakage noticed.

Failure:Replacement valve spring broke, both valves bent in containing cylinder, #3? piston shredded, spun bearing, crank shaft gouged, crank case deeply scarred.

State:TX

Is Dealership Offering Repair: Yes and everything including a Camry lender free of charge. they have been on hold for parts since january 24th when the incident happened and they should be arriving in about the 22nd of march. There is 2 other cars in the dealership with the same issues so i expect my car to be ready by about early april I'm guessing. i was told that experts were brought in to oversee the repairs.

Man what a joke. Be happy you can just move on. I would say do not buy another one as people are getting valve adjustments on their new brz's now and before recall.

If you estimate 1500 bucks - 2500 for all labor parts, paper pushers and rental cars X the cars to fix thats 2-500 million just for the USA. Man subarus stock is going to be reallll bad. I hope it falls to 5 bucks a share and then the little money pusher men think twice about waiting 6 years for an engine recall, or about cheaping out the first time around. Those involved deserve to pay a steep price,

Subaru is the new ford / gm of japan.

Actually, I believe the failure was the result of Subaru's steel suppliers falsifying QA inspection records for the materials eventually used to make the springs. I don't think this was Subaru's direct fault, per se, unless you just mean them waiting for failures before acknowledging there could be a problem in the first place...

"Mileage After Recall Performed" is referring to the number of miles you've driven since you got the car back.

One more link in the chain that you missed.
It is probably the steel supplier to the parts manufacturer that sold the parts to Subaru.
Subaru would have had no clue until things started to fail. Even if Subaru tested each spring (not gonna happen) the low failure rate would mean that it could slip through the cracks for a while. This happens in the industry all the time. Just normally doesn't cause such a ruckus.


Don't think the timing was coincidental.

Sounds like Toyota Corp.is about to take a giant shit on that dealer. They'll have every pencil pushing penny pincher in there for a Major Audit going over every repair order and debiting any claim without every i dotted and t crossed for ALL WARRANTY CLAIMS after the Field Techs. get done with the Service side of things.

If that 'technician' there doing those jobs has half a brain... he already quit. If he doesn't, the GM and Service Manager (if he's not fired as well) will be showing him the way soon after they pay the $?XX,XXX.oo bill to 'Yota I'd wager.

Y'all wild for thinking this repair could be done without issues. I'm not surprised in the slightest that this type of post-repair fallout is happening.

I just edited my post to reflect that the dealer corrected their error of borking the oil regulator. Car is currently trouble free as of 10 miles past recall work.
