ON MARCH 26,2020 I WENT TO DRIVE MY CAR. THE DASHBOARD WAS CRACKED, STICKY, AND MELTED THROUGHOUT. THE NEXT DAY I CALLED PRIORITY TOYOTA AND WAS TOLD (JOHN SERVICE MANAGER) THAT THEY WOULD NOT FIX IT DUE TO THE WARRANTY ENHANCEMENT NOTIFICATION-ZE6 WHICH ENDED MAY 31, 2017. ALSO, I HAD OWNED THE CAR FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS. HE WOULD REPLACE IT AT MY COST OF APPROX. $2200 BUT HE WOULD PROVIDE AN EXACT AMOUNT WHEN I DECIDED TO FIX IT. THEN I EXPLORED THE INTERNET TO SEE THE SCOPE OF THE PROBLEM. IT CAN LEAD TO VISIBILITY PROBLEMS (GLARE) AND PROBLEMS WITH THE DASHBOARD AIRBAGS. YESTERDAY, APRIL 7, 2020 I CALLED THE TOYOTA CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER 1-888-2709371 AND SPOKE TO RANDALL WHO REPEATED WHAT JOHN HAD SAID, BUT ADDED THAT MY CAR WAS OLD AND NOT WORTH MUCH AND I HAD GOTTEN MY MONIES WORTH OUT OF IT. I ASKED WHO I COULD CALL NEXT AND HE SAID HE WAS THE END OF THE LINE. I WAS ASSIGNED A CASE #[XXX] BUT CAN'T SEE TO READ IT FOR MYSELF. THE CAR HAS REMAINED IN MY GARAGE SINCE I SAW THE PROBLEM ON MARCH 26. IT IS GETTING WORSE. IT WAS LAST DRIVEN ON MARCH 5 WITH NO PROBLEMS. I HAVE A TOYOTA RAV 2017 FROM PRIORITY TOYOTA, HAMPTON, VA 757 838-5000.

I DROVE HOME AND PARKED THE CAR IN MY DRIVEWAY. THE FOLLOWING MORNING, MONDAY APRIL 8TH, I MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THAT DAY TO BRING THE CAR TO A TOYOTA DEALER.

Summary of Complaint

ABNORMAL OPERATION BETWEEN ACCELERATOR AND THROTTLE. TECH TESTED THROTTLE BODY AND TESTS PASSED. TECH TESTED ACCELERATOR PEDAL AND VALUES OUT OF RANGE. TECH WOULD THINK THIS COULD CAUSE A DTC TO SET IF NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY BUT THERE WERE NO CODES. AT RANDOM MOMENTS, THE CAR WILL NOT ACCELERATE. CANNOT GET ANSWERS. OCCURS MOST OFTEN AFTER IDLING AT A LIGHT THEN STARTING TO ACCELERATE IT WON'T MOVE. THIS HAS OCCURRED OVER THE YEARS SO WE HAVE HAD THE THROTTLE AND FILTER CLEANED TWICE IN THE PAST BUT PROBLEM IS PERSISTENT AND BECOMING MORE FREQUENT.
