Dear Sir, I Purchased A New 2013 toyota highlander. The Spare Tire Is Mounted Under The Vehicle & Held In Place By A Cable. The Spare Tire Becomes Loose And It Drops Down When Driving. I Just Recently Had Riverhead toyota (where I Purchased The highlander) Repair The Mechanical Crank, It Was In The Shop For 8 Days. The Service Manager Mike Hammer Told Me He Personally Repaired It. I Had It 2 Days And About 300 Miles And The Spare Tire Dropped Down Again. It Is Currently Back At Riverhead toyota. I Asked For The Regional Manager To Inspect The Vehicle. This Has Been Going On Since Nov 2013. I Called toyota To Complain, About 15 Times. I Have A Case Worker But My Vehicle Is Not Fixed. My Spare Tire Gets Damaged When It Drops Down, toyota Has Replaced 2 Mag Wheels And Is Refusing To Replace 2 More Damaged Mag Wheels. They Are Unable To Fix The Problem. This Is A Safety Issue With The Spare Tire Hanging By A Cable From The Bottom Of The Vehicle (it Has Dropped Down As Much 8in Off The Road) And It Swings. My Vehicle Was Purchased With A Trailer Hitch Which Contains The Swinging Of Tire. When The Tire Drops Below The Trailer Hitch It Makes A Lot Of Noise. Can You Please Check If This Is Issue With Other Owners & What Is Was Done To Repair This Problem. I’m Afraid One Day The Tire Will Become Separated From My Vehicle And Cause An Accident. *tr
