2019 REV4 Fuel Tank replaced

Finally after waiting a month, Toyota Canada sent a reply to my inquiry of not being able to fill my gas tank fully. I was advised to contact my dealer to arrange having the Fuel Tank and and Sender replaced under warranty. The warranty for the new parts are extended to 8 years as well.

A week ago I made an appointment for warranty work. Today the Fuel Tank and Sender Unit were replaced without issue. The needle on the fuel tank now reads full and pegs the top of the gauge.

Glad to have had that taken care of.

I see you are from Hamilton... do you mind sharing which dealership you got this done at? I feel I have the same issue with my 2020 R4H just gathering evidence (which may take a while as my fill ups are like once a month nowadays).

I got the letter too and although I did notice I'm not able to put as much fuel into the tank as when I first had the car, my problem isn't as severe as others where they can't even get the needle above the F line. I do plan to take it in to get it inspected and if the part is affected then I'll get it replaced.

Work was done at Redhill Toyota.

Went to them with a gas receipt for a fill up and showed them it was showing 7/8 full. During my routine service they did a vehicle inspection to confirm nothing was faulty and sent the enquiry to Toyota. Took about a month or so to get a formal reply from them.

So far very good service from Redhill.

I'm glad the OP got taken care of. I agree with the above poster that perfection is elusive in cars and always has been.

Got the letter a few weeks back, did the fill up and brought the receipt in a few days ago, scheduled to have my tank replaced next Wednesday at Pickering Toyota Smiling Face With Open Mouth.

Wasn't really something that bothered me too much, it just took a little bit longer to fill it up completely, at least now I should be able to get over 40l every fill and keep the trips to the gas station down somewhat.

I don't own it. OP never paid for it either. Warranty paid it and also got a complimentary extended warranty. If you expect perfection from a vehicle, you might as well never buy from any manufacturer because it doesn't exist.

When brand new Chrysler has an issue everyone screaming POS with crappy reliability, when Toyota fails, it's none is perfect. But guess what that POS Chrysler is half the price of your Toyota. So tell me what's the point in buying Toyota since nobody is perfect??

You paid extra for quality but it's not there.

Again, I didn't pay for it. Sorry Toyota's reputation gets you so triggered. If you like Chrysler vehicles, buy them.
It doesn't matter what myself, or anybody thinks of Chrysler. It's your money, you do you.

I get it.
Michael Jordan missed over 9,000 shots in his career. He is far from flawless. But he is still widely considered the GOAT.
Same thing with Toyota and their reputation for reliability. They are far from flawless. But they tend to have less flaws over the long haul than any other manufacturer.

You make it sound like the OP knew this when he bought it. Don't be that guy.

Cool...story...bro?

Also perhaps it's time to upgrade to REV-9, much more durable and much better...well aside from the whole kill all humanity thing. Doesn't even need any gasoline:
