I think I would be complaining to Toyota too.
Notwithstanding the fact that the vehicle is 10 years old, why would the evaporator be corroded? I had an 86 Chevy Suburban with dual air and had some trouble with the aluminum pipes under the vehicle being eaten by salt until I figured out a way to provide some protection to them but I never had any issues with the evaporator. I replaced the pipes twice at $300+ each time but it sure did not cost $3600.

My wife drives a 2006 Toyota Sienna.  The air conditioning in that mini-van
lost its refrigerant.  The Toyota dealer wanted $3,595 to replace the
corroded rear evaporator and rear refrigerant lines needed to fix the leak.
  I told the dealer “Air conditioning is nice, but not worth that much to
us.”  The dealer refused to block off the rear air conditioner, and only
said, “You can’t do that”.

I see there are several sources of special tubing plugs used to block off
the rear air conditioning of this mini-van model.  Does anybody have
experience with this?  Can the front A/C system of dual evaporator vehicle,
work long term, with the back system blocked off?
