When going over speed bumps/pot holes we hear a lot of rattling in left front suspension. I entered my VIN # on the toyota website and surprisingly it said "no recalls" for my model.. hmm.... I think I'll call a stealership tomorrow.

I HAD JUST EXITED A MAJOR HIGHWAY ONTO A SECONDARY ROAD, CAUSING A MAJOR REDUCTION IN SPEED. ALL OF A SUDDEN THE FRONT END OF MY VEHICLE DROPPED. THE DRIVERS SIDE BALL JOINT HAD BROKEN AND THE WHEEL BUCKLED INWARD. THIS MADE STEERING ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. I CALLED TOYOTA HEADQUARTERS IN CALIF ON THIS ISSUE. THEY ARE AWARE THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM, BUT ARE TAKING NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DEFECTIVE PARTS. THEY WISHED ME LUCK ON GETTING THE REPAIR DONE.
