Q: Dealer recommends I replace the intermediate steering shaft in 2.5 year-old rav4 on 2007 Toyota RAV4

My 2007 Rav4 (4wd v-6) is 2.5 years old but over 36K mile warranty (mostly highway miles). Repair quoted at $1600. Will toyota help since this is an apparent problem with a # of their models (RAV4 TSB ST001-08). it was suggested by another dealer to ask for a district service manager for assistance. Any recommendations? Thanks
