1995 Toyota 4Runner V6 from North America
3 blown head gaskets. After my second blown head gasket, my mechanic (who is a Toyota specialist) informed me that there was a recall, but mine was not included. He also explained why it had happened a 2nd time. The head gaskets do not fit the head correctly. I have just blown another head gasket at only 131,760 miles! My current mechanic showed me a recall sheet that shows that Toyota knows there's a problem with the 1995s, but only certain ones were in on the recall, mine is 3 months short. It also states that Toyota says the problem was corrected in 1996. I called Toyota and was given the explanation that mine is not in the recall so I will not be receiving any help from them. I'm a 55 year old woman who does not drive like crazy! I feel Toyota knows they have a problem and should be liable for my cost of repair!
Other than 3 blown head gaskets???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
