Installed 1 day ago- only today was car driven with bushing installed, and do feel marked improvement shifter lever 'tightness' and remedied problem of car not starting unless shifter is held forward in park position. Good product yet IMHO overpriced at $25.00. Still, the only aftermarket unit marked specifically for my application 2002 Toyota Avalon XL therefore I went with it. Not able to rate it against any others as this is a first time use and fix of this type on the vehicle, but if need be, may seek lesser priced product knowing now what is involved. Still, glad to have the problem fixed.
At last, a company that had the right part at a fair price, without having to purchase the ENTIRE shift cable from Toyota! It's gratifying to know that companies like BushingFix are still around for those of us who aren't millionaires.
This was definitely the most economical way to fix my car drifting out of park. The old bushing had deteriorated and was basically gone. Dealer wanted several hundreds of dollars to replace this bushings. The most difficult part was removing the center console. It snapped right into place and the shifter works like new.
It worked like a charm. Other than space constraints and if your hands are large it is elatively easy to clean out the last remaining parts of original bushing, insert the new one in the loop and connect to the pin on the shifter. There's very little room to do the cleaning and replacement and re-connection. If you were to drop the replacement bushing while trying to put it into the cable loop it would disappear into the irretrievable depths. Tip: put a large paper towel or cloth inside the opened-up console and under the bushing replacement work area. That way if it does slip and drop you'll be able to find and retrieve it easily in the paper towel / cloth. About 25 min total, including removing and re-installing the console cover.
Called Toyota first, they told me I had to buy the entire shift cable. More than $250 for the part. Plus I have to install the entire cable. The bushing arrived as scheduled, took maybe 10 min to install. Fixed the problem, what more could you ask for!
I paid for the 1-2 day shipping to get this in fast due to my car not being able to move from my cable being disconnected. I am a female and have no mechanic skills at all. I was able to YouTube how to fix my 2001 Toyota Avalon XLS's gear shifter bushing and this piece worked great. Was able to fix this piece in less than 20 minutes. I ordered here because no in-store auto places seemed to have the right piece. Bought 2nd piece as a backup in case this happened for a third time in the next year or so. Received the product in 26hrs from the time I ordered in and I am located in the DC area during the pandemic. Thanks all.
Excellent fix for my loose shift problem Toyota wanted over $300 to fix issue. Told me it would take a tech 2.5 hours to do what took me 30 minutes . Not a cheap part but well worth it.
I found this while researching an issue with the shifter not always going into park and it worked perfectly. Install was easy and the kit comes with everything you need, short of the tools to remove the interior panels. Worked perfectly on my 2000 Toyota Avalon.
