    In my 2012 with 55,000 miles. I know this is a known issue. But what is Toyota stance on the fix, are they still doing this for free?

    Depends on if its throwing codes. Then the "customer support program" applies until ten years from first use. If the car was purchased in September of 2011, then it would be covered, with codes, until September of this year. If it was purchased in August of 2012, you would have until August of 2022. Don't clear the codes, the dealer has to see them.
