Update: It was initially read that there would be new vehicles to replace the current ones that cannot be fixed. Seems it's just loaner cars until a fix is found. Sorry for jumping the gun!.


It sounds like an easy fix but apparently not. A new report from Seeking Alpha says all of the first Solterra and bZ4x models that rolled off the assembly line cannot be fixed. The report says Toyota states that there is no remedy to cure the faulty wheels available at this time, and customers will receive a free replacement vehicle pending a resolution of the problem.
There goes the $7,500 tax credit and depending on how long it takes, the $3,750 might be gone by then too!

The sister Solterra forum made the same mistake earlier 馃檪
That鈥檚 where I saw it and off to the races I went, lol. I then re-read the article and came to conclusion it was misinterpreted. Oops

I special ordered the FWD with the 18inch wheels, Heavy Metal and the winter package (heated front seats and steering wheel).
has yours arrived in port? If not, no QC hold or recall will appear yet, per dealer conversations. It was my understanding that only cars that made it to the customer were to be recalled. Others will be contained by a QC hold at port or dealer.
I just looked up my vin number Free Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Decoder & Lookup and the factory came up. Is there a better place to search for vin info?
you will need to register if you don鈥檛 already have an account. You can pull specs including the order date.

up until June 30th, you could look at online spec sheets and pull embedded info from but Toyota blocked the API.
