VIN: JTMBD31V375****

Summary of Complaint

PURCHASED MY RAV4 USED FROM TOYOTA/SCION OF GRAND RAPIDS AROUND JANUARY/FEBRUARY OF 2016. IT HAD JUST A SMIDGE OVER 77,000 MILES ON IT. MY FIRST OIL CHANGE WAS EARLY DUE TO LOW OIL LIGHT COMING ON. I TOOK IT INTO A PRIVATE OWNED SHOP WHERE IT WAS DISCOVERED THERE WAS HARDLY ANY OIL IN IT AT ALL. CONTACT THE DEALERSHIP, THEY HAD ME BRING IT IN TO CHECK, AND START MY OIL CONSUMPTION TEST. TEST COMPLETED AT 81,711 MILES. THE TECHS "CHECKED IT" AND THAT IT PASSED THE TEST AND THEREFORE, WOULD NOT PERFORM THE REBUILD. ADDITIONALLY, TOLD ME THAT IT'S NORMAL FOR VEHICLES TO CONSUME OIL. I THOUGHT IT WAS A BIT EXCESSIVE, GETTING A LOW OIL LIGHT HALFWAY IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. I ACCEPTED THE NEWS THINKING MAYBE IT WAS JUST A FLUKE. AFTER 2,000 MILES, I DECIDED TO RE-CHECK MY OIL. AGAIN, THERE WAS PRACTICALLY NOTHING ON THE DIPSTICK, MY LIGHT HAD NOT TURNED ON. I CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP AGAIN AND I ASKED ABOUT HAVING ANOTHER TEST DONE. TO WHICH THEY REPLIED, "TOYOTA ONLY ALLOWS 2 FREE TESTS (PER YEAR?)" . SO INSTEAD OF STARTING ANOTHER TEST, I WAS TOLD TO CHECK MY OIL EVERY THOUSAND MILES. AND IF MY LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN, CONTACT THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THEIR GOAL WAS TO "MAKE IT FAIL" SO THAT THEY WOULD PERFORM THE REBUILD FOR ME. AT THE 1,000 MILE MARK, I CHECKED THE DIPSTICK. ALREADY DOWN TO ABOUT 3/4. I THOUGHT THIS ALONE WAS PRETTY EXCESSIVE. AT THE 2,000 MILE MARK I CHECKED AGAIN. HARDLY ANYTHING ON THE DIPSTICK THIS TIME. COULD NOT READ THE LEVEL PROPERLY. I CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP AND THE TECH ASKED SOME QUESTIONS. STILL WASN'T "GOOD ENOUGH." I QUESTIONED HIM ABOUT THE NEWEST READING, HE SAID IT WAS "NORMAL" AND GAVE ME SOME GARBAGE ABOUT OIL USE AND THINNING OUT, ETC. HE INSTRUCTED ME TO PUT IN 2 MORE QUARTS OF OIL AND TO KEEP CHECKING EVERY 1,000 MILES. SEEMS TO ME THAT THERE IS DEFINITELY AN ISSUE, AND THE DEALERSHIP IS NOT ACKNOWLEDGING IT.

Summary of Complaint

THIS VEHICLE HAS NOT BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT. THIS IS NOT WHAT I AM ANNOUNCING AT THE MOMENT, BUT MERELY TO OUTLINE THE PROBLEM OF THE OIL BURNING ON THE RAV 4. THIS PROBLEM IS COSTING ME ADDITIONAL MONIES THAT WAS NOT CATERED FOR THAT PURPOSE. I AM PURCHASING MORE THAN THE USUAL AMOUNT OF ENGINE OIL AT THE STORE THAN I WOULD BUY. I SIMPLY NEED TOYOTA TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE/PROBLEM AND FIX IT. MY VEHICLE IS RELATIVELY NEW AND THERE IS NO REASON THAT I SHOULD NEED A NEW ENGINE, NOT FOR A SEVEN YEAR OLD VEHICLE. I WOULD APPRECIATE IF THE AUTHORITIES CAN AMELIORATE THIS SITUATION FOR ALL TOYOTA OWNERS THAT ARE FACED WITH THIS PROBLEM, AND FIX THE ENGINE BURNING OIL PROBLEM...UPDATED 11-06-13 *BF

this is a follow up email regarding my car 2007 toyota rav 4 FWD 4 cylinder ; oil consumption of this model is too much 1 quart every 250 - 300 miles. Toyota already know and acknowledge the problem but with my case when I went to the dealer they just told me that it passed the test. If NHTSA will help us voice our concern maybe toyota will consider this to become a recall

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT THE CAR 3 MONTHS AGO FROM PRICE AUTO. THE TIRES WEE FINE AT THAT POINT ALTHOUGH AFTER ABOUT 30 DAYS I NOTICED THE DRIVER REAR TIIRE WAS WEARING A LOT AND THE PASSENGER REAR WAS WEARING ALSO SO I DECIDED TO BUY NEW TIRES 4 OF THEM FROM TIRE WAREHOUSE. WHEN DOING SO I ASKED FOR AN ALIGNMENT THATS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON MY VEHICLE AND IT WAS WITH THE ALIGNMENT. THE REAR ALIGNMENT HAS TO E SEALED SHUT AFTER INITIAL ADJUSTMENT OR IT COULD COME LOOSE AND A BAD ACCIDENT COULD HAPPEN. I IMMEDIETLY MADE GRAPPONE TOYOTA IN CONCOD NH AWARE OF THIS AND THEY SCHEDULED ME TO COME IN SO THEY COULD TAKE PICS AND SEND A REPORT TO HEADQUARTERS TO SEE IF THEY WOULD COVER THE COSTS SINCE IT WAS A RECALL. I SPOKE WITH A SCOTT AT TOYOTA. . ALSO AT THIS POINT ITS ALMOST 30 DAYS SINCE I OUGHT THE 4 NEW TIRES AND AS OF YESTERDAY 3/27 THE DRIVER BACK REAR TIRE HAD TO BE REPLACED DUE TO THE FACT IT WAS DOWN TO THE METAL. ALL TOYOTA WILL DO IS PAY FOR THE PARTS WHICH IS $251 . THEY WANT ME TO PAY FOR THE LABOR AND THE ALIGNMENT AND THAT COMES TO $484. SO THEYVE ADMITTED FAULT BY OFFERING TO PAY FOR ANY OF IT. I JUST BELIEVE THEY SHOULD BE LIABLE FOR ALL OF IT. I MEAN I ALREADY PAID TIRE WAREHOUSE FOR AN ALIGNMENT BUT THEY CANT TOUCH IT BECAUSE OF THE RECALL ONLY TOYOTA CAN AND THAT IS FOR THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE THATS NOT RIGHT. IF THE VEHICLE HAS A RECALL AND YOU CAN ONLY BANDAID THE PROBLEM THEN THE RECALL ISNT FIXED AND THE CAR IS UNSAFE.. I MEAN AND WHAT ABOUT THE TIRES I HAVE ALREADY GONE THROUGH WHOS PAYING FOR THOSE?

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING ON A DIRT ROAD AROUND 25-30 MPH WHEN MY DRIVERS SIDE CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAG (CSA) DEPLOYED UNEXPECTEDLY. PREVIOUS TO DEPLOYING, THE SEATBELT HAD SUDDENLY LOCKED INTO PLACE. I LEANED BACK TO GET THE SEATBELT TO RELEASE, AND AS I TRIED TO LEAN FORWARD TO SEE IF IT HAD, THE AIRBAG SUDDENLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY DEPLOYED. I STOPPED THE VEHICLE AND LOOKED AROUND THE CAR FOR DAMAGE FROM A COLLISION AND OBSERVED NONE. I ALSO DID NOT FEEL OR SENSE A COLLISION HAPPENING. I BELIEVED THIS ISSUE MAY BE RELATED TO A TOYOTA AIRBAG RECALL, PROMPTING ME TO CONTACT THEM. TOYOTA DID AN INSPECTION AND READ THE ELECTRONIC DATA RECORDER FOR THE VEHICLE. UPON COMPLETION THEY TOLD ME THAT THE EDR HAD SENSED A COLLISION ON THE LEFT REAR OF THE VEHICLE, CAUSING THE AIRBAG TO DEPLOY. I HAVE A COPY OF THE EDR, THOUGH NO MEANS TO READ IT OR VERIFY IF THIS IS CORRECT. BASED ON THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLISION, I PURSUED A CLAIM WITH MY COMPREHENSIVE INSURANCE. THE INSURANCE COMPANY FOUND NO DAMAGE TO MY VEHICLE AND CITED A FAULTY SENSOR AND CITED TOYOTAS CSA AND SEATBELT RECALL OF 2007 RAV4S. TOYOTA INSISTS THAT MY VEHICLE IS NOT INVOLVED IN THE RECALL AND THAT THIS ISSUE IS UNRELATED. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THAT IS TRUE, AS MY INSURANCE IS DENYING THE CLAIM AND CITING THE RECALL AS THE REASON. I DID HAVE A TOYOTA DEALER REPLACE THE SEATBELT, AS AFTER THE AIRBAG DEPLOYED IT WAS NO LONGER FUNCTIONAL. I ALSO STILL HAVE THE AIRBAG, JUST IN CASE IT NEEDS TO BE INSPECTED OR SOMETHING.

TOYOTA USES A SOY FOOD BASED PRODUCT IN THE INSULATION OF THE ENGINE WIRING. APPARENTLY IT ATTRACTS MICE THAT CHEW ON THE WIRING. THIS CAUSED THE ENGINE TO START MISFIRING FROM THE DAMAGE AND EVENTUALLY STOPPED RUNNING. THIS WAS AN EXTREME SAFETY HAZARD TO THE OCCUPANTS. THE DAMAGE COST ME $1,000 TO REPAIR. THESE CRUCIAL WIRES SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN MADE FROM A PRODUCT THAT IS FOOD FOR MICE. I UNDERSTAND FROM THE TOYOTA SERVICE MANAGER THAT THIS IS NOW A COMMON PROBLEM. MY CAR WAS ON A CITY STREET WHEN IT STALLED OUT. HOWEVER, MOST MILES ARE ON FREEWAYS.
