I have a 2017 4Runner SR5 Premium that I bought brand new. I love the vehicle and I've always been meticulous about maintaining my vehicles especially this one. Something that is bugging the hell out of me is the steering wheel has been pealing at the top. This started within the first 8 months of owning the vehicle. I took it into Toyota Escondido to get it replaced under warranty and apparently Toyota deemed this as, "outside influence." They said if I wanted to fix it I would have to purchase a steering wheel for $781.33+tax and an hour of labor to install it. I even reached out to Toyota corporate.

I can't figure out what they consider, "outside influence." Does that mean me putting my hands on the wheel is outside influence??? Needless to say, I'm pretty pissed and wanted to see if anyone else has had similar issues. Am I crazy or is this a common issue with the rig?
IMO this catch phrase could be cleaning/detailing solutions, or substances on your hands. Others here have gotten it replaced under warranty, don't give up.
