i have an 08 tundra 4x4 with 64k miles asnd it has blown the seal on the rack and pinion steering assembly. toyota won't cover since it is 4k outside of warranty. Too bad since this seems to be a known issue on lifted 4x4 tudras

Do you drive a 2008 TOYOTA TUNDRA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
