Well for all you out there who paid to get your electronic throttle body fixed or that may experience this financial burden in the future they are owning up to it and providing extended coverage and refunding owners. Look for it in the mail.

That's great. Paid to have my 2010 TB replaced at the Dealer last year. Yahoo. Are they mailing the checks or do we need to contact someone? Thank you for the info.

You will get a letter explaining soon. Basically once you have the letter and your receipt for the repair you can bring it to your dealer so they can submit it for a refund.

Got my letter today. It also states that there will be a free PCM flash that will improve vehicle performance if/when the TB fails due do contamination of the contacts.

What a waste of space, huge pictures of your cars, lists of cars you've own, addons, etc!
