My 2009 Corolla has had the alternator and water pump go at 80,000? how usual is this?
The dealership says I have no recourse as I purchased my Toyota in 2008 but it was a
2009 model. The mechanic I finally went to (out of frustration with the way the dealershop
service dept. treated me) said he'd not heard of an alternator going at 80,000. I am
questioning whether others wtih a 2009 have experienced this? I have been in for at least
4 recalls with this vehicle - the sticking gas pedal being just one....most recently it was
the air bag that would not inflate. Is this 2009 year a lemon? Any suggestions for 'again'
approaching the service manager? Thanks
yes they said my 2009 corolla water pump leaked on the alternator and had to replace both. 1200.00 dollars later
its not common but it does happen, you guys need to watch you tube and learn how to change this our yourself. its easy. Just take your time and watch a few different people change them. watch them change it on a honda or nissan, it will save you lots of money.
