RO here. 😀
My bz is at dealer since 15.07.2022. Now the only thing that I was able to squise from the dealer was that I will have a surprise soon. He did not want to tell me any other details but he had a big and sugestive smaile.
Hope for the best.

Did they at least give you a decent loaner car while waiting for your bZ to be fixed? What were you driving before taking delivery of the bZ?

In the first period I had from the dealer a CHR for 2 weeks, a Camry for a week and a Land Cruiser for another week. Those ware their test drive cars becouse in the first instance Toyota did not provide any kind of suport. The dealer understood my situation that I had to sell my own car in order to pay for the Bz.
After first month (most probably becouse the dealer complained) Toyota took action and provided me Corolla Hatchback that I still have. No fuel included in the deal.

Someone here in the US reported from the New York area that theirs had been taken back to the Newark Port (New Jersey) and had finished being fixed and now they are awaiting for it to return back to their dealership. (found it interesting, that here in the USA, that they shipped it back to port... as we all though that those that owned them would have them repaired at their respective dealerships).... I wasn't planning on checking on my dealership until the end of the week, but If there are more reports here in the US that they are fixed and shipping I may want to make a jump on it.

Did you had the chance to drive it before the recall?
Who are you asking? me? My answer would be No, I did not. .... but I will add, I'm a long time Toyota owner and know how most of them feel. I'm expecting it to feel like a Toyota... I have also watched at least a dozen review videos about the ride quality and one thing that was repeated over and over that it was very Quiet! prior to this I owned a Prius Prime, and loved the EV driving experience... and the Prius was mostly quiet too (but, on another note, I don't think the Prius is built with the same fit and finish that a Camry is... lots of creeks and clicks.)

Yes. I saw that you are from US and I hoped that you are one of the 260 who have already received the car. The purpose of the question was to find out why or if is true that Toyota sends the cars to other locations to change the bolts instead of bringing the bolts to change them in the places where the cars are now parked... This makes no sense for me, if true.
As for the driving experience, I'm sure it's extraordinary. I already have a CHR and I know what Toyota means. From Toyota, I think I can say that the only car I haven't driven is the Prius, just brcouse I do not like how the car looks.
Tomorrow Toyota launches the bz4x in Japan and maybe they will allow the dealers to give us some concrete information. I think we will receive (those with April orders) other cars produced after September. All the pieces of information thrown on the internet lead me to this conclusion. Let's hope we find out tomorrow.

I only have ONE confirmed person that said their car was taken from dealership to Port, and is done being fixed on now on its way back to the dealership. I haven't heard from other confirmed owners yet.

My personal one has been sitting at Port since May 11th. The original HOLD went into place on 5/26, then the Recall on 6/23. I'll probably send a message to my dealership today to see if they show any movement.

Yes, if true, very strange to take the car back to port. Maybe something to do with US also changing wheels and bolts?!?!

maybe they don’t trust the dealers with changing all of that out lol!

Same except mine was bumped from 168 to 189 days.😡
Yup, looks like that's why mine has done as well. I don't understand it! therefore, depending on the date you go by for the start.. It was originally 5/26, but the system now says it was 6/2.... so that would make it December 1st to December 8th, before they even take the hold off?

So what are we supposed to assume by that? that we we might see the car before the end of the year?

Well, that goes beyond the timeframe they said they'd have the parts in and the work being completed (which would be between NOW and the End of Next week.

I don't know what to think anymore, other than it pisses me off too, that they keep extending that HOLD time. :mad: o_Oo_O:mad:

Repaired models are showing up at dealers in the UK with people already taking possession (Per ToyotoOwnersClub UK posters including photos). Nothing from the US side that I know of yet. Of course, the US is having new wheels installed instead of just new bolts so I'm sure that has something to do with the US not repairing yet).

May not mean anything but my BZ odometer went from 1 Mike to 2 miles this morning and range dropped from 99 to 84. It’s in port but It’s moving around lol. Dealer said no change mid last week. I’ll check tomorrow.
