Hi Folks, My 2013 started having the milling/bearing noise at 84,000 miles, on what is presumably the original motor, as I cannot find any entry of the motor being replaced in the Toyota service history.

The dealer confirmed the seal failure causing bearing failure.

Silver Rock, the Extended Warranty supplier to Carvana is going to cover the replacement. My cost: $50.

They are going to provide the motor, and they told me it is a remanufactured motor that originally had 46,000miles on it. they could not tell me where it comes from.

Does anyone know of it comes from Tesla, a Tesla authorized remanufacturing company, or Tony's shop?

The new motor itself will have a 12mo, 12,000 mile warranty, typical with an ICE motor.

I'm pretty happy with the coverage and support from Riverview Toyota. they also are going to do some body work related to the flaking paint notice I received. Overall, this repair will be about 2 weeks, with another week in the body shop. Definitely better than 3-4 months that I had read about.

They are also going to check my battery as I am regularly only seeing 65 miles on a full charge, but then I drive pretty fast on the freeway and all my miles are freeway...
