    Some possible ooptins:
    1. Stay awake at night and fret.
    2. Dump it.
    3. Wait to see what other information emerges. New date ranges of prescriptive VIN information
    4. Extend the warranty
    5. Do a Dale Earnhardt and "Drive it 'til the bitch blows up"
    6. Be afraid to drive it on long trips.
    7. Not worry about it. it will all sort over time.

    I know, it's a 3rd Gen forum and "Gen 3" in topic, but what's the point of this poll without gen 2/2.5 involved?

    9. I'm a future Gen 3 owner that just decided not to own one.

    I'd dump it if it's in the '22-'23 build date range, since those could potentially take a big resale hit depending on remedy. And if it's a 2024 I'd hold on to it.

    I did that on a 99 Chrysler 300m that I should of gotten rid of. Kept it 7 years, 136,000 miles and likely paid as much in repairs as a new civic would of cost.

    Never again.

    Number 3.
    I'd wait to see what the solution is and go from there.

    5 / 7. Fackin send it, see what happens. (Before this really came out I got the 10year 100k warranty since it was so cheap through Jerry, thanks to these forums).

    I'll keeep mine and figure out in 3.5 years whether or not to sell / trade it in before the 5-yr powertrain warranty runs out. If it breaks before then, toyota will fix it with zero out-of-pocket as long as I don't do any modifications that could void the warranty.

    You have to do what works for you but I'd be careful about being hasty. I think a bigger risk to resale values is increased supply and people being over leveraged on high ticket items.
    I had a BMW M4 that had a horrible bearing reputation. They never took a hit.
    I had another very high end car that needed new valve guides and valve seats at 8000 miles. Very expensive repair. The manufacturer covered none of it. The community predicted end of earth and my car doubled in value.
    The stupid 6.0 was never fixed and never took much of a hit

    5. Mines paid off and I've put too much money into it to just dump it in the chance it happens. Wouldn't make any financial sense. I've got a 21 4Runner Limited as my backup just in case.

    I’m closing in on 80k with no issues, and absolutely love the truck….knock on wood. I’m out of warranty and I for one love the fact that Toyota issued a recall. I now have some sort of piece of mind that was missing 20,000 miles ago. I’m curious what the solution may be. Other than dealership hassles I have no problem letting recalls and TSB’s get fixed before the potential problem creeps up. I’ve had many Tundras and I do have a great relationship with my service manager. Hopefully all the ice coffees I bring in for service go a long way.

    I'm too broke after buying this rig to afford mods.
    I'm not going to worry about it. I'm adding this to the "what if a meteor fell on my house" level of concern.

    Rock and roll!

    Number 7. I have less than 1,000 miles on mine and have an 8 year/100,000 mile Toyota warranty. Odds are in my favor that nothing will happen--and if it does, the warranty will cover it. Like MrKABC (above), I'll worry about the things that I can influence/change. I've mitigated my risk with the warranty, and I'm looking forward to many miles of enjoyment!

    Hey, I'd be salty too if I'd been brushing catastrophic engine failures off as a fraction of a decimal and then it turn out the 2.5 gen guys were dead right lol The resale value? Always wondering when your engine will fail on you... how about on the high way in front of a semi?

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    It will all come down to individual aversion to risk.

    I don’t have a dog in this fight though. Good luck to those who do.

    To answer the OP, I think the smart move is not hang on to a vehicle that is known to have engine failures while driving, especially if I had a family with me. Drop it like a hot cake before the resale value plummets.

    Or have extra bravado just show the 2.5 gen guys your tough and rich and don't care. Shrug

    I take my truck places like this and these are my passengers so “not worrying about it” would seem irresponsible - how much money and how long would a recovery take?
