Wow, it's either much more complicated to correct this issue than many thought (including myself) or they have a fix and are trying to tool up to get the fix out to existing cars first before reopening the line to build more BZ units.

Or it's faster/cheaper to not build any more that then need to be fixed afterwards, than it is to just suck it up. I'd rather they just got it right. I was wondering if there was any damage to some of the more difficult to swap out parts (like hubs) caused by inserting and torquing the hub bolts or driving it even the short distance to factory storage from the line.

Another Fool on Facebook posted yesterday that they're Sales Guy just told them (Saturday) that Toyota had figured out the problem and that it was due to "Rusty Lug Nuts" .... there is too much wrong with that comment! First, RUST would seal them tight, am I right? Second, they aren't LUG NUTS, they are Lug Bolts, ha ha...

Why do these sales guys do this to people! So bad!

And if that really is the only issue... not sure how rusty bolts would cause such a problem, then it would be simple to just ship out new ones! HA...

It will be interesting to find out what the real story is, OR RATHER what Toyota wants us to hear! ha.

I mean isn’t this always the problem? I suspect my car is built and in the country, but the chances of getting any real detail from my dealer is basically non existent.

Certainly when I spoke to him the other week, the fact there was a production shutdown was news to him.
