Even the copy-write of the page was taken as yours. The starter has nothing to do with a running problem. I found a good way to get some traction on this is to start a case at Toyota Central call the 800 number to start this. See the for more information. I was wrong due to the fact that when they say 10 years, it's from the date the car was first used, which in my case was Jan 9, 2006. The dealer won't do a thing because they now blAme it on aamco even though they changed the solenoid twice! What ever happens in the future we will simply have it fixed.
It got 25mpg when I bought it and it still gets that. If you drive it for a while, turn it off and right back on it starts good. Class action law suit is the only way to make them responsible. The repairs I did over the past five years were to replace the starter in the beginning, the battery 4 years later, and spark plugs and wires. Sunny03 answered 5 years ago After driving to Bakersfield from Kernville - Bill Wright Toyota tells me I'm not under warrenty for this transmission problem. He checked on the computer about my repair records. I was told that the car checked out fine and that I probably gave too much gas too quickly.
Every time they said it was fixed. Note: The list of problems below is organized by vehicle generation. It is too bad, I liked Toyota they used to make very good and dependable vehicles. The starter motor draws the battery's voltage down quite a bit, so that makes the fuel pump run slower than normal. It has the rear backup screen and Bluetooth which I love.
I did not start it for over a month recently and when I turned the key it fired right up. The brakes aren't big enough to handle the weight of this vehicle? Since we have no truck now, it carries stuff Toyota never envisioned it doing without a complaint. Acceleration in town is alright, on the highway it gets the job done, but it seems a little lacking. Toyota released a newly designed steering intermediate shaft that, when installed, solves the noise problem. Is there a way out , can i file a complaint somewhere , a consumer forum or anything.
Inside it is quite roomy for its size, and the layout of the controls is nice. I drove it to a parking lot to test it. The speaker system also leaves a lot to be desired. Of course I have needed routine and scheduled maintenance but never any major repairs. Toyota said it was caused by an acid rain and my car insurance have to pay for it. We offer a replacement part number with the updated Toyota software Call 313--462--0124 and ask for Kelly.
If still pending, please add my woes! Anyway I plan on making this vehicle my daily driver, and plan on putting many more miles on it! Note: I also took this to the Toyota Dealer where they spent three hours and could not find anything. You can even do that three times. They also think we are crazy to spend 5K to paint a car that is worth half that much, but we are glad we did. Not to mention it is full time 4wd with a 5 speed manual transmission and still has the original clutch. I guess that the letter must have something to do with the location of the manufacturing plant of that specific ecm computer. He says they have the same problem transmission and Toyota is well aware of this issuse, but has been in denial.
And in general I miss armrests. Have copied the info here and have my copy of the work order from August cearly stating I complained of feeling transmission slip! Thanks patrizia answered 6 years ago Thank you Koko. Will see what the Toyota dealership will offer to do. The keyless ignition is nice and I love how it unlocks when I bring the key for near the door. The reason for 4-stars on comfort and performance is that the noise level gets pretty high at high speeds, and it's somewhat undermotorized on steep grades uphill. Koko1234 answered 6 years ago Hi Patriza, Don't take it to a dealer, it will cost you a lot of money for a new Ecu but as I said in my previous comment take the Ecu for repair.
Black smoke comes from burning way too much fuel. As expected, Toyota is very un-responsive. We replaced the exhaust system, shocks. On May 2018 I reported that my car smell like moho and humidity. Let me know if you had any luck with Toyota. That will double the amount of time the pump runs and will allow it to build more pressure for starting. I'm being quoted a price of 4000.
This leads to a short circuit of the switch, which may overheat or even melt the switch.

I have found it to be a reliable automobile.
