Summary of Complaint

1999 TOYOTA COROLLA PURCHASED IN VERMONT JAN. 1999, MOVED TO NC IN JULY, 2008, WITH ABOUT 101,000 MILES. DRIVER WAS AT DOCTOR'S OFFICE PARKING LOT AUG '08-STARTED THE VEHICLE, AND THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT DOWN TO THE FLOORBOARDS, POOL OF BRAKE FLUID ON GROUND. REFILLED RESERVOIR, AND AS SOON AS PEDAL WAS PRESSED, BRAKE FLUID SPRAYED OUT. TOWED TO LOCAL GARAGE, WHERE MECHANIC SHOWED THAT THE REAR BRAKE LINE TO REAR BRAKES WAS SEVERELY RUSTED AND JUST RUPTURED UNDER PEDAL PRESSURE. HE SPLICED ON A 1-2 FOOT SECTION WHERE THE RUST WAS WORST. ON 6/03/2010, THE SAME HAPPENED ON THE OPPOSITE REAR BRAKE LINE IN OUR DRIVEWAY. CAR WAS TOWED TO TOYOTA OF NEW BERN, NC. BY AAA, WITH A DETAILED NOTE TO REPLACE THAT RUPTURED LINE. AFTER A $207.00 INFLATED BILL, THAT LINE WAS ALSO SPLICED, AND THE REPAIR INVOICE NOTED THAT ALL THE BRAKE LINES NEEDED REPLACEMENT FROM SEVERE RUST. ASKED THE DEALERSHIP OWNER TO RECONSIDER THE 2 HOUR CHARGE OF $90.00 PER HOUR, BUT HE WAS OBSTINATE STATING HE HAD A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITY HE HAD TO PAY FOR, AND WOULD NOT COMPROMISE WITH THE INITIAL $90. ESTIMATE GIVEN THE PREVIOUS DAY. THIS UNDERCARRIAGE RUST RUNS THROUGHOUT THE VEHICLE. NO GARAGE WILL ALIGN THE 4 WHEELS FOR FEAR OF SNAPPING SOMETHING. I'VE REPLACED THE LEAKING GAS TANK AND FILLER NECK TWO YEARS AGO FOR THE SAME MASSIVE CORROSION. THESE CORROSION ISSUES POSE A VERY REAL THREAT TO LIFE SHOULD THE BRAKES FAIL ON THESE NORTHERN VEHICLES DRIVEN ON SALTED WINTER ROADS. TOYOTA OF NEW BERN, NC OWNER APPARENTLY IS TRYING TO MAKE UP FOR HIS DROP IN SALES DUE TO RECALL ISSUES BY OVERCHARGING HIS REPAIR CUSTOMERS. WHEN THE SERVICE DEPT. REP PHONED TO CONFIRM RECEIPT OF THE VEHICLE TOWED, HE INFORMED ME THERE WAS AN INITIAL $90. DIAGNOSTIC CHARGE BEFORE BEGINNING THE WORK. I OBJECTED, AS I HAD TOLD HIM TO REPAIR THAT SPECIFIC BRAKE LINE, AND HE COUNTERED WITH, "BUT THAT INCLUDES A FREE 23 POINT CHECK." I SAID NO WAY, & HIS MGR. AGREED WITH ME. YEAH, RIGHT. *TR

CURRENTLY I OWN 1999 TOYOTA COROLLA , MODEL -CE WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY USED VEHICLE AND WAS @8500 MILES ON IT AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE. CAR WAS IN GOOD RUNNING CONDITION UNTIL ON 8/29/09 CAR STOPPED SUDDENLY WHILE MOVING AND SMOKES CAME OUT FROM ENGINE HOOD. WITHOUT WASTING TIME, INSURANCE COMPANY WAS CONTACTED IMMEDIATELY AND CAR WAS TOWED TO THE REPAIR SHOP. REPAIR SHOP PERSONNEL INSPECTED QUICKLY AND I WAS TOLD THAT WIRING OF THE HARNESS CABLE NEAR THE ENGINE HAS BEEN OVERHEATED AND SOME HAVE MELTED DUE TO MALFUNCTIONING OF SOLENOID ON THE STARTER WHICH ALSO CAUSED BATTERY TO BE OVERHEATED. I TOUCHED HOOD AND IT WAS VERY HOT. WE WERE LUCKY ON THAT DAY OTHERWISE BATTERY COULD HAVE EXPLODED SHOULD WE WOULD HAVE TRIED ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO START A VEHICLE. I HAD MY WIFE AND TWO KIDS IN THE CAR. AS OF NOW, REPAIR SHOP IS NOT SURE ABOUT TOTAL EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE AND ASKING @$736.00 INCLUDES REPLACEMENT OF BATTERY AND STARTER AS WELL AS LABOR TOWARDS FINDING, REPLACING BY SOLDERING MISC HARNESS CABLES. AFTER DOING THIS MUCH, THEY WILL CHECK AGAIN THE VEHICLE TO MAKE SURE PROBLEM IS RESOLVED, OTHERWISE THEY HAVE TO CONTINUE TO CHASE UNTIL CAR IS FIXED. THIS LEADS TO UNCERTAINTY OF COST AND RELIABILITY OF THE VEHICLE EVEN AFTER REPAIR. THIS EVENT COULD HAVE RESULTED INTO TRAGIC INCIDENT FOR MY FAMILY WHERE MY WIFE AND TWO KIDS WERE IN THE CAR DURING THE EVENT. AS OF NOW, I WAS ADVISED BY ORIGINAL CAR SELLER REP, REPAIR SHOP AND FEW FRIENDS TO SELL IT OFF IN AS IS CONDITION OR AFTER REPAIR. AS OF NOW, CAR SELLER IS OFFERING $300.00 FOR THE CAR IN AS IS CONDITION. I AM STILL WONDERING WHILE WIRES OVERHEATED SUDDENLY AND SMOKED. I JUST DID OIL CHANGE A FEW DAYS AGO. PER INSURANCE COMPANY, THIS DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED UNDER INSURANCE AND HAVE TO TAKE CARE PERSONALLY. THIS IS A HUGE COST BURDEN WITH UNKNOWN REASON. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR IS 9 YRS OLD, 109,000 MILES IT'S ON THE LOWER END OF THE RECOMMENDATION MILEAGE FOR THE YEAR OF THE CAR. ON 9/3/08 FIRST DAY THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT EVER CAME ON. I GOT NERVOUS WENT TO ADVANCED AUTO PARTS AND THEY CHECKED THE LIGHT, IT SHOWED SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH THE AIR FLOW. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WENT OUT AFTER 3 DAYS. BROUGHT IT TO TOYOTA FOR REPAIRS OF SOME OTHER ITEMS AND MENTIONED THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT GOING ON AND THEN OFF. THEY CHECKED IT BUT WASN'T SURE IF IT WAS READING CORRECTLY. 4 DAYS LATER CAME BACK ON AGAIN AND WENT OUT 3 DAYS LATER. 2 DAYS PASSED AND THEN IT CAME BACK ON AGAIN AND REMAINED ON EVER SINCE. I BROUGHT IT BACK AND THEY TOLD ME IT WAS A CHARCOAL CANISTER FAILURE AND IT WOULD COST $450, I WAS UPSET BECAUSE I JUST GOT $968 WORTH OF REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE DONE. I ALWAYS KEEP UP ON MY MAINTENANCE WORK/OIL CHANGES. IS THIS A FAULTY PART FROM TOYOTA? I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS GOING AND IF IT IS NORMAL AFTER SO MANY YEARS/MILES THEN WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE AND HARD TO FIND OR REPAIR? I HEARD ONLY TOYOTA HAS THE PART WHICH WAS QUOTED TO ME AS $232. SO IF I DON'T PAY $450 MY VEHICLE WON'T PASS INSPECTION/EMISSION TEST. CAN SOMEONE HELP! *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR IS A 1999 TOYOTA, COROLLA AND I HAVE HAD SO MANY THINGS GO WRONG WITH THIS CAR. FIRST OF ALL I ALSO HAD A NOVA 1989 THAT HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. THE CV JOINT WENT TWICE(@)30 TO 40 K MILES. I CAN NOT BELIEVE AFTER 10 YEARS THEY STILL DID NOT FIX THIS PROBLEM. IT IS TRULY A MANUFACTURES PROBLEM. ALSO I HAD TO HAVE MY STEERING COLUMN REPLACED IN THIS 1999 AND I NEVER HEARD OF THE STEERING COLUMN NEEDING TO BE REPLACED. AND HERE I AM AGAIN AT 135,282 MILES AND I NEED ANOTHER CV JOINT THIS SURE SEEMS LIKE A TRUE LEMON CAR. I LOOKED UP ON ODI AND AM ASTOUND AT ALL THE CARS AND THE PROBLEMS THEY HAVE. I WAS PLANNING ON BUYING A NEW CAR BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MANUFACTURE TO TRUST. NONE OF THEM WANT TO FIX WHAT THE MANUFACTURES SCREWS UP OR OWES UP TO IT. WHAT IS A CONSUMER TO DO? *TR

Summary of Complaint

ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON FROM TIME TO TIME ON ITS ON DUE TO FAILURES OF THE CHARCOAL CANISTER/EVAPORATIVE SOLENOIDS. THE CHARCOAL CANISTER SEEMS TO BE A COMMON COMPLAINT. THE CAR WILL RUN JUST FINE (DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF FAILURE), BUT IF YOU HAVE EMISSIONS TESTING, THE CAR WILL FAIL. MANY TOYOTA OWNERS SEEM TO BE HAVING THIS SIMILAR TROUBLE DUE TO SOME FLAW IN THE TOYOTA ICU PROGRAMMING. IF YOU SEARCH ON THE NET FOR THE SIMILAR PROBLEM, MANY LINKS WILL SHOW UP. ----------------- HTTP://AUTOS.MSN.COM/RESEARCH/VIP/RELIABILITY.ASPX?YEAR=1999&MAKE=TOYOTA&MODEL=CAMRY&TRIMID=-1 ----------------- HTTP://WWW.CARTRACKERS.COM/FORUMS/LIVE/TOYOTA/600.HTML. *JB -----------------
