Summary of Complaint

THE ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING (EPS) FAILED ON MY 2010 TOYOTA RAV-4 TODAY ON THE INTERSTATE AND THE RESULTING CRASH ALMOST KILLED ME. I'M 53 YEARS OLD, MY RAV-4 HAS ALWAYS HAD ROUTINE MAINTENANCE AND IS IN GOOD CONDITION, NOT ABUSED AND ALWAYS WELL TAKEN CARE OF. WITHOUT WARNING TODAY WHILE TRAVELING AT ABOUT 60 MPH ON THE INTERSTATE THE STEERING WHEEL STARTED VIBRATING AND SHARPLY TURNING LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT FOR ABOUT 5 SECONDS WITH A GRINDING AND SHAKING NOISE IN THE FRONT END OF THE VEHICLE. I USED ALL MY STRENGTH TO KEEP THE CAR POINTED STRAIGHT WHILE TRYING TO SLOW DOWN AND NOT CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. THEN THE CAR SHARPLY VEERED LEFT AND HIT (HARD) A 5-FOOT CONCRETE BARRIER WALL SEPARATING THE INTERSTATE LANES. AS THIS WAS OCCURRING A RED TRIANGLE WARNING LIGHT CAME ON THE DASHBOARD WITH AN EXCLAMATION POINT. AFTER THE ACCIDENT I LOOKED IN THE TOYOTA RAV-4 OWNERS MANUAL, AND IT INDICATED AN "EPS MALFUNCTION". THE VEHICLE SUSTAINED MAJOR DAMAGE (INSURANCE ESTIMATE STILL PENDING, PROBABLY ABOUT $8,000). MORE IMPORTANTLY HOWEVER, I BELIEVE IF THE CONCRETE RETAINING WALL HADN'T BEEN THERE MY VEHICLE WOULD HAVE TURNED LEFT, ROLLED OVER INTO APPROACHING ON-COMING TRAFFIC FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE AND POTENTIALLY CAUSED MUCH GREATER SAFETY RISK TO ON-COMING TRAFFIC AND DAMAGE. IT WAS VERY FORTUNATE THAT THE WALL WAS THERE. I SUSTAINED BACK INJURIES. THERE WAS ALSO A WITNESS IN BACK OF ME WHO SAW THE ENTIRE THING WITH THE ERRATIC STEERING AND RESULTING ACCIDENT; HE STOPPED TO ENSURE WAS OK AND HE CALLED 911 AND MADE A STATEMENT TO THE POLICE. THIS WAS NOT DUE TO TIRES (THEY ARE NEW), OR POOR ROAD CONDITIONS (THIS PART OF THE INTERSTATE WAS NEWLY REFINISHED AND SMOOTH). IT WAS CLEARLY A MECHANICAL FAILURE OF THE TOYOTA EPS.

Summary of Complaint

While driving my vehicle, it began to smoke under the hood. I exited the highway in order to pull over in a safer location. Some smoke started coming through the vent in the car as I pulled over. I exited the car and moved away and small flames began at the air vents on the outside. After I called 911, The fire kept building until the front half of the car was engulfed. The fire department came and put out the fire. They weren’t sure the exact cause, but believe it started in the engine. My car was up to date on inspection and was not yet due for an oil change. No dashboard service lights were on beforehand. I had State Farm insurance and am not sure yet if they were able to find anything from their investigation.

Summary of Complaint

My tires are a 225/65R17. repeatedly, in heavy rain or very wet snow, the tires on mounted on the driver's side hydroplane and lose traction. I am concerned that this problem is due to the design of the tread. This is a directional tire that is only designed for the right side of the vehicle. Tires mounted on the Left side of the vehicle channel water/wet snow toward the center of the tire, causing them to hydroplane under these conditions. All other road conditions: ice, light rain, snow, dry roads, the tires are noisy but do not lose traction

Summary of Complaint

[XXX] Hi, My name is [XXX]i. I own a 2010 Toyota RAV4. Which I had bought from roseville Toyota dealership. On Sunday afternoon, I was driving back to my home from South Lake Tahoe. I drove for almost 40 miles and suddenly the steering got locked while I was driving the car. There was no prior indication of steering lock lights before I start the car. The steering got locked suddenly in a winding road. I called Geico roadside assistance and towed the car and it is with Thomsons Toyota, placerville, ca. The dealer told me that they found issue with alternator and battery. The reason I am reporting this issue is it should have steering lock light turned on before I start the car, so that it could avoid potential accident situation. Request you to please investigate in this. INFORMATION Redacted PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Summary of Complaint

This car was bought for a new driver and we have had 2 separate occasions when she has gotten somewhere and the car wont start. All the warning lights come on, but will not do anything when you push the button. We can jump it and it will start. This is not safe for a young person that could get stranded at random somewhere, and is now afraid to take it somewhere. We have checked the connections and the battery has been checked and is fine. The other complaint is the rear suspension recall. The tires were rotated and now it has a vibration, I was told that because of the recall it cannot be aligned unless things are replaced because of the terrible fix job on the recall. If something is recalled it should be fixed correctly and not be a bandaid job. There should not be a cost associated with a cheap fix that caused more problems. We purchased this vehicle because of reputation, if they are not supporting their product, then it will go and no other toyota products will be purchased.

INTERMITTENTLY, MY 2010 RAV4 ENGINE TURNS OFF, WHILE DRIVING, AND THEN TURNS BACK ON SHORTLY AFTER. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS, AS YOU LOSE POWER STEERING AND BRAKES, MEANING VERY DIFFICULT TO STEER AND STOP. THIS HAPPENS WHEN THE CAR IS IN MOTION. NEVER HAD IT CUT OUT AT A STOP LIGHT. I'M THINKING IT'S THE ECM. THE CAR'S MAINTENANCE IS VERY UP TO DATE. MY DAUGHTER DRIVES THIS VEHICLE AND IT HAS HAPPENED TO HER NUMEROUS TIMES. I HAVE EXPERIENCED IT ONCE, SHORTLY AFTER GETTING THE CAR FROM THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP. I ASKED THEM ABOUT IT AND THEY WEREN'T ABLE TO OFFER ANY SUGGESTIONS, OTHER THAN I COULD PAY THEM TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM. THERE ARE NO ERROR CODES REGISTERED WHEN THIS HAPPENS, WHICH IS WHY I THINK IT'S THE ECM. TOYOTA HAS UPGRADED THE CODE LEVEL FOR THE ECM TWICE, SO I'M THINKING THERE ARE ISSUES THEY ADDRESSED IN UPGRADING THE CODE. I JUST CAN'T FIND WHAT THOSE UPGRADES FIXED ANYWHERE ONLINE. MY DAUGHTER IS AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR, AND IF THE DEALERSHIP ISN'T WILLING TO TALK TO TOYOTA FIRST ABOUT THE PROBLEM, I'M NOT GOING TO SHOVEL MONEY INTO THEIR POCKETS TO TINKER AROUND WITH IT...IT HAS TO HAPPEN IN THEIR PRESENCE, AS THEY SAY...

Summary of Complaint

REGARDING NHTSA CAMPAIGN: 13V383000 FOR 2006-2011 TOYOTA RAV4 THE ACCEPTED REPAIR PROCEDURE FOR THE ABOVE REFERENCED NHTSA CAMPAIGN IS FLAWED. ON MY VEHICLE, THE EFFECT OF PERMANENTLY DISABLING THE REAR TOE ADJUSTMENT HAS GREATLY INCREASED MAINTENANCE AND OPERATING COSTS AND HAS POTENTIALLY DEGRADED THE SAFETY OF ALL VEHICLES OF THIS TYPE. I HAVE EXPERIENCED GREATLY ACCELERATED WEAR OF THE RUBBER SUSPENSION COMPONENTS AND TIRES RESULTING IN THE REQUIREMENT OF A COMPLETE REAR SUSPENSION REBUILD. MY CONCERN IS THAT OTHER VEHICLES OF THIS TYPE THAT ARE NOT MAINTAINED TO STANDARDS DUE TO COST, OR HAVE HAD THE RECALL REVERSED TO MITIGATE THE FINANCIAL IMPACT, AS I HAVE DONE, ARE OPERATING IN A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS CONDITION. IN EFFECT THIS CAMPAIGN HAS CREATED A COST BARRIER TO PROPER MAINTENANCE OF CRITICAL SAFETY SYSTEMS. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH TOYOTA CORPORATE, AND THEY HAVE NO INTEREST IN INVESTIGATING, REVISITING OR OFFERING OTHER SOLUTIONS TO THIS ISSUE AS THE RECALL REPAIR PROCEDURE WAS QUOTE "APPROVED BY THE GOVERNMENT".

TIRE VENDOR SAID REAR ALIGNMENT WAS OFF IN 2016 (WHEN REPLACING NEW TIRES) AND COULD NOT BE ADJUSTED OR REPLACED WITH ADJUSTABLE TOE DUE TO RECALL STICKER. DEALER INSPECTED TOES 2016 AND SAID SPECS ARE RIGHT AND TIRE VENDOR DOES NOT HAVE RIGHT SPECS. SINCE 2016 I HAVE REPLACED 4 TIRES TWICE WITHIN 50,000 MILES EVEN THOUGH TIRES HAVE LONGER 50,000 MILE WARRANTIES. THE TIRES HAVE LASTED LESS THAN HALF OF THEIR EXPECTED LIFETIME. IN 2019, TIRE VENDOR SAID REAR ALIGNMENT IS OFF AGAIN WHEN REPLACING TIRES AND CAN'T BE ADJUSTED DUE TO RECALL STICKER. THIS SUGGESTS THAT THE REAR TOES INSERTED IN 2014 FOR SAFETY RECALL CREATED A NEW PROBLEM - POOR ALIGNMENT WHICH CAUSES PREMATURE WEARING OF TIRES.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN DRIVING THE VEHICLE AT APPROXIMATELY 40-50 MPH, IN 4TH GEAR, A VIBRATION OR SHUDDER IS FELT IN THE TRANSMISSION. IT IS A SLIGHT LOSS OF POWER. IT CAN BE FELT INTERMITTENTLY AS LONG AS YOU ARE HOLDING A CONSTANT SPEED. IF YOU MANUALLY OR AUTOMATICALLY SHIFT DOWN IT STOPS, BUT AS SOON AS YOU MAINTAIN SPEED AGAIN IT WILL COME BACK. IT DOESN'T NECESSARY MATTER WHICH ROADWAY YOU ARE DRIVING ON. FROM MY UNDERSTANDING THERE IS A MALFUNCTION IN THE TORQUE CONVERTER. A "LOCK-UP CLUTCH" DESIGN FLAW IN THE DAMPER PLATE AND SPRINGS. THIS IS ALREADY A KNOWN ISSUE FOR SOME MODELS AND RECALLS HAVE BEEN ISSUED. IT IS BECOMING A BIGGER, MORE WIDE SPREAD ISSUE AND THE RECALL NEEDS TO BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE ALL MODELS WITH THIS PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

SOMETIMES WHEN I AM PULLING OUT OR PULLING IN TO PARK MY CAR I HEAR THIS BANG ON MY RIGHT REAR SIDE. SOMETIMES WHEN I AM TURNING LEFT OR RIGHT AND THE RIGHT REAR TIRE GETS MOST OF THE WEIGHT OF THE VEHICLE I HEAR THE SAME HARD BANG. I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC AND HE RODE WITH ME AND HE HEARD IT TOO. MY MECHANIC THOUGHT IT WAS THE STRUTS AND REPLACED THEM, BUT THAT WAS NOT THE PROBLEM. I STILL HAVE THIS PROBLEM. PLEASE HELP. MY MECHANIC SAID THAT UNDER THE CAR IN THE REAR THERE IS A BAR THAT HAS A STAMP THAT INDICATES RECALL ITEM.

Summary of Complaint

THEY DID A RECALL ON MY VEHICLE AND IT WAS ABOUT A BOLT RUSTING ON THE BACKEND NEAR THE REAR TIRE SO THE FIX WAS TO PROTECT A BOLT. THEY PUT SOME BAR ON THE BACK SIDE NEAR THE REAR TIRE THAT MADE IT WHERE I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET MY BACK END OF THE CAR ALIGNED SINCE. CAUSING MY TIRES TO KEEP GETTING BUBBLES IN THEM. THIS HAPPENS TO EVERY SET I GET AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY CANNOT FIX THE REAR ALIGNMENT BECAUSE OF THE RECALL. THIS FIGHT HAS GONE ON FOR YEARS. ALL TOYOTA SAYS IS THEY WERE ONLY REQUIRED TO FIX THE RECALL ....IN OTHER WORDS THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE ALIGNMENT ISSUE. PLEASE HELP ME. I HAVE THE REPORT FROM THE LAST ATTEMPTED ALIGNMENT SHOWING HOW OUT OF ALIGNMENT THE VEHICLE IS.
