WHEN I APPLIED THE BRAKE DURING A RAINING DAY, MY CAR SUDDENLY WENT TO THE SIDE. THIS KIND OF SCENARIO HAPPENED TWICE BEFORE ( ON LOCAL STREETS WHILE DRIVING AROUND 20 MILES PER HOUR). I FELT THAT THIS CAR'S BRAKE SYSTEM WAS DIFFERENT FROM THAT OF THE OTHER CARS I OWNED BEFORE. SHOULDN'T THE ANTI-BRAKE SYSTEM HELP THE CAR STAY STRAIGHT ON THE ROAD? ON 09-20-2002, IT WAS RAINING, I DROVE THIS CAR ON THE HIGHWAY AT THE SPEED AROUND 50 MILES PER HOUR, ON THE FIRST LEFT LANE. AFTER I APPLIED THE BRAKE IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE SPEED FURTHER, MY CAR WENT TO THE RIGHT SIDE, AND THEN LEFT SIDE, AND THEN CRASHED TO THE MIDDLE CONCRETE. *PH *JB **DIMSII IVOQ ENTRY POSTED AFTER 12/12/02 CUT OVER TO ARTEMIS**768012

Summary of Complaint

THIS COMPLAINT IS ABOUT A GPS DEVICE THAT ATTACHES TO THE CAR THROUGH THE OBDII PORT. MANUFACTURERED BY AGNIK CORPORATION SOLD UNDER THE BRAND NAME VYNCS. THE DEVICE, WHEN INSTALLED, HAS CAUSED INTERMITTENT STALLING OF THE VEHICLE AT LOW SPEED SUCH APPROACHING A STOP OR IDLING IN GEAR AT A STOP. THIS WAS REALIZED TO BE CAUSED BY THE DEVICE AFTER ABOUT 1 WEEK OF EXPERIENCING INTERMITTENT STALLING. WHEN THE DEVICE WAS REMOVED FROM THE CAR, THE STALLING ISSUE DISSAPEARED. I HAVE RETAINED THE DEVICE FOR SUBMISSION TO THE NHTSA FOR TESTING. WHEN I BROUGHT THIS ISSUE TO THE MANUFACTURER ATTENTION THEY CEASED COMMUNICATION WITH ME, DISABLED THE GPS SERVICE, AND CLOSED MY ACCOUNT, WHEREBY I COULD NO LONGER EXTRACT ANY HISTORICAL COMMUNICATIONS FROM THEM. ADDITIONAL ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT THEM THROUGH [email protected] HAVE BEEN UNANSWERED. AGNIK DOES NOT PUBLISH AN ADDRESS OR PHONE NUMBER.

Summary of Complaint

SAFETY ISSUE!!! THE LOW MILEAGE VEHICLE HAS A STRANGE ISSUE THAT TOYOTA SEEMS UNABLE TO REPAIR! 139000.0 MILES THE VEHICLE WILL INTERMITTENTLY REFUSE TO START. T THE KEY UNLOCKS BUT ONLY SO FAR IT REFUSES TO ENGAGE THE STARTER OR ALLOW THE AUTO GEAR SELECTOR TO WORK! STRANDS MY WIFE IN THE BAD PARTS OF TOWN AND CAUSES DISTRESS AND DANGER BECAUSE OF THE STRANDED VEHICLE CONDITION! NO CODES GENERATED AND TWICE TOYOTA HAS HAD FOR TWO DAYS AND NO FIX! CORPORATION HAS CASE OR INCIDENT REPORT OPEN BUT NOT FIXED. SO FAR IGNITION REPLACED BUT WAS TOLD THAT THE FOLLOWING COULD BE ISSUE? 1. IGNITION KEY CYLINDER 2. IGNITION ELECTRICAL SWITCH AND OR RELAY, 3. TRANSMISSION INTERLOCK SWITCH, 4. GEAR SHIFT LEVER BUTTON? GEAR SHIFT LINKAGE ADJUSTMENT TO ENSURE CAR IS IN PARK PROPERLY FOR INTERLOCK SWITCH TO WORK. EACH TIME IT COSTS OVER $200.00 AND A NEW $200.00 OR MORE WORTH OF PARTS! WOULD THIS NOT BE A SAFETY RECALL ISSUE WITH GEARSHIFT NEUTRAL INTERLOCK OR SOMETHING? MY ALTERNATIVE IS TO KEEP DRIVING A GAS HOG SUV THAT IS AT LEAST SOMEWHAT RELIABLE? SO MUCH FOR SAVING FUEL OR THE ENVIRONMENT IF A CAR IS NOT RELIABLE OR ACCORDING TO TOYOTA FIXABLE WITHOUT THROWING CASH AT MECHANICS OR DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX WITHOUT JUST GUESSING AT RANDOM PARTS REPLACEMENTS? THE VEHICLE IS AT REST AFTER DRIVING AND IS IN PARK WITH KEY ENGAGED PROPERLY WITH BRAKE ENGAGED PROPERLY TO START THE IGNITION PROCESS THAT INTERMITTENTLY ENGAGES SOLUTIONS ... MAKE A NEW KEY?, REPLACE KEY AND CYLINDER OR ANY NUMBER OF OTHER THINGS? NEVER A RENTAL OR LOANER SO LOJACK NOT AN ISSUE, NO BLUETOOTH, NO GPS DISABLER TO MY KNOWLEDGE IF ONE EXISTS IT IS A CRIMINAL ACT TARGETING MY WIFE OR MYSELF. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE ENGINE CONSUMES OIL AT AN ALARMING RATE SINCE I PURCHASED THE CAR 15 YEARS AGO. TOLD A TOYOTA SHOP FOREMAN ME ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AND HE TOLD ME THAT TOYOTA DOESN'T WANT TO ADMIT ANY FAULT. HE SAID THEY MADE THE PISTONS TOO SMALL AND THE RINGS TOO BIG. HE IS A CLOSE FRIEND WHO KNOWS I TAKE CARE OF MY CARS EXTREMELY WELL. HE SAID TO JUST KEEP NURSING THE CAR LIKE I DO. AND FOR 15 YEARS I HAVE BEEN NURSING MY CAR EVERY WEEK I CHECK THE OIL. IF IT IS A SLIGHT BIT LOW I WILL ADD OIL TO THE FULL LINE. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE THE CAR LAST, IF I LET IT GO AND DIDN'T CHECK THE OIL, THERE WOULD BE NOTHING LEFT IN THE CRANKCASE, THE ENGINE WOULD PROBABLY SEIZE UP BECAUSE OF LACK OF OIL. I NOTICED THIS CONDITION WITH THE ENGINE WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR 15 YEARS AGO USED. THE CAR WAS A YEAR AND HALF OLD. I CALLED TOYOTA ABOUT IT BACK THEN IN THE YEAR OF 2000 AND THEY DENIED ANY PROBLEM OR RECALL LIKE THEY STILL DO TODAY. SINCE THEN, I HAVE CONFRONTED OTHER TOYOTA COROLLA OWNERS WITH THE SAME YEAR AS MINE GIVE A TAKE A YEAR OR TWO AND THEY HAVE ALL STATED THAT YES THERE OIL WAS EXTREMELY LOW ALSO. ONE STRANGER I WALKED UP TO IN THE PARKING LOT SAID TO ME "YES, I ADD OIL TO IT EVERY WEEK." SO TO SUM THINGS UP. I FEEL THAT TOYOTA SHOULD COMPENSATE OWNERS LIKE ME WHO HAVE FAITHFULLY ADDED OIL TO THE ENGINE EVERY WEEK FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS THAT I HAVE OWNED THAT CAR. TOYOTA SHOULD BE SUED FOR NOT BEING HONEST ABOUT THEIR OIL BURNING ENGINES FOR THE 1998 TO 2002 COROLLA MODEL YEAR. THERE IS NO OIL LEAKING UNDER THE CAR AT ALL AND ALL OF THE GASKETS ON THE ENGINE ARE DRY WITH NO LEAKS. THE INTERIOR OF THE TAILPIPE HAS ALOT OF BLACK SOOT INDICATING OIL CONSUMPTION WITHIN THE ENGINE.

MY 1998 TOYOTA COROLLA WILL NOT ALWAYS SHUT DOWN THE THROTTLE ON CRUISE CONTROL BY HITTING THE BRAKE OR THE CRUISE CONTROL OFF BUTTON. IT WILL PUSH YOU STRAIGHT THROUGH A STOP SIGN. I ENDED UP TAKING THE FUSE OUT OF THE CRUISE CONTROL . FIXED THE PROBLEM BUT I NO LONGER HAVE CRUISE. I TRIED TO TELL TOYOTA THIS BUT THEY MAKE IT NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO EMAIL THEM TO REPORT THIS SYMPTOM. I THINK THEY DO NOT WANT TO KNOW. *TR

Summary of Complaint

IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT TOYOTA RECALLS REGARDING STICKING GAS PEDALS, I FELT I SHOULD REPORT THAT THIS HAPPENED TO ME WITH MY 1998 TOYOTA COROLLA ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO. THE PEDAL STUCK THREE DIFFERENT TIMES AND I DISCOVERED THAT BRAKING DID NOTHING. HOWEVER, I WAS ABLE TO GET IT TO RELEASE ALL THREE TIMES BY PUMPING THE GAS PEDAL REPEATEDLY! WHEN I TOOK MY CAR TO THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP, THEY REFUSED TO CONSIDER MY COMPLAINT SERIOUSLY AND SAID IT MUST BE DRIVER ERROR AS IT COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE THEIR VEHICLE. AT THE TIME, I ASKED THEM TO CHECK DIRECTLY WITH THE MANUFACTURER REGARDING WHAT WAS POTENTIALLY A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM, AND WAS SIMPLY BLOWN OFF AND TREATED LIKE I WAS NUTS. I AM REPORTING THIS TO YOU NOW, BECAUSE IN LIGHT OF MY EXPERIENCE, I FEEL THAT THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN GOING ON A LOT LONGER THAN ANYONE REALIZES. I HAVE BEEN A TOYOTA CUSTOMER SINCE 1983 BUT I FEEL LIKE I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ONE. I THINK TOYOTA HAS BEEN SWEEPING THIS ONE UNDER THE RUG FOR A LONG TIME AND THEY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. I AM SURE THERE ARE A LOT MORE OLDER MODELS OUT THERE LIKE MINE. *TR

ATTEMPTS TO CLEAN THE SURFACE AR TEMPORARY, WITH THE FOGGING RETURNING AFTER A FEW DAYS. THE FOGGED LENSES ARE A HAZARD AS THE LIGHT IS GREATLY DIMINISHED OVER A CLEAR LENS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

TWO YEARS AGO I REPLACED ALL THE TIRES ON MY 1998 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH A SET OF NEW KUMHO TOURING A/S 795 (175/65SR14). THE TIRES ARE NOW ABOUT 15,000 MILES OLD. THE WARRANTY STATES THEY SHOULD LAST 70,000. ON 01/05/2009 I GOT THE FIRST FLAT TIRE. IT HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED BY AUTO SERVICE AS CAUSED BY A "BAD VALVE STEM". ON 07/03/2009 I GOT A SECOND FLAT TIRE. IT OCCURRED WITH A DIFFERENT TIRE THAN THE FIRST INCIDENT ABOVE. IT HAS ALSO BEEN DIAGNOSED BY THE AUTO SERVICE AS CAUSED BY THE VALVE STEM. TODAY 08/08/2009 I GOT THE THIRD FLAT TIRE WHILE DRIVING ON HIGHWAY. I HAVE NOT GOT YET TO THE CHANCE TO GO TO THE AUTO SERVICE BUT IT SEEMS THESE TIRES ARE NOT VERY RELIABLE. *TR
