 Description of the problemMy wife started the car in the morning to drop the kid to school which in within 2 miles of our home. It was cold day of winter. She heard a loud noise from the front part of hood when she drove about 1/2 a mile and was worried with the kids what is that noise. Any how after that the car had start making squishing noise from the front of the hood. We took to toyota and they said water pump needs to be replaced. I have also read some other people reviews online regarding the water pump of toyota vehicles. My wife called the toyota motor co for warranty and they said, even that is not a part of power train and it is not covered under warranty. So we are ending up paying extra approx $650. 00 to toyota for the replacement.
