Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 SIENNA AWD XLE HAS 103K MILES AND HAS A WHIRRING NOISE COMING FROM THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL AREA FOR A WHILE NOW. THE PITCH AND VOLUME IS PROPORTIONAL TO SPEED AND IS LOUDER AS SPEED INCREASES. MY RESEARCH TELLS ME THIS IS A COMMON DEFECT WITH THE COUPLING BEARINGS IN FRONT OF THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL. IT SEEMS THAT RAV4 OWNERS GOT A RECALL FOR THE SAME ISSUE, BUT SIENNA OWNERS DID NOT. TOYOTA HAS REDESIGNED THIS PART ON LATER MODELS TO AVOID THE ISSUE. HOPE YOU CAN GET THIS RESOLVED. THANKS.

Summary of Complaint

TOYOTA SIENNA MINI VAN SPONTANEOUS ACCELERATION OUR MINIVAN SPONTANEOUSLY ACCELERATED. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW TOYOTA HAS BEEN HAVING THIS ISSUE WITH OLDER MODELS, BUT OURS IS A 2012 TOYOTA SIENNA XLE LIMITED ALL WHEEL DRIVE MINI VAN. I PUT ON THE BRAKE TO LET MY WIFE OUT WHEN THE VAN TOOK OFF AS IF I HAD THE GAS PEDAL TO THE FLOOR, YET MY FOOT WAS ON THE BRAKE. WE KEPT MOVING, SO I PUSHED THE STOP/IGNITION BUTTON AND THE VAN WOULD NOT STOP. I THEN PUT ON THE EMERGENCY BRAKE AND THE VAN WAS STILL MOVING, I WATCHED THE RPM'S KEEP GOING UP ON THE TACHOMETER. I THEN PUSHED THE OFF/IGNITION BUTTON AGAIN, STILL WOULD NOT STOP, MY NEXT STEP WAS TO PUT IT IN NEUTRAL, BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO BLOW THE ENGINE, SO I PUSHED THE OFF/IGNITION BUTTON AGAIN AND THE ENGINE FINALLY STOPPED. WE WERE FREAKED OUT WE HAD ONLY READ ABOUT THIS NOT THINKING IT WOULD EVER HAPPEN TO US. NOW THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE HAVING WIFE DRIVE THE VAN ANYMORE. I CALLED TOYOTA OF NASHUA, THEY BASICALLY SAID WE CAN INSPECT IT AND CALL TOYOTA OF CALIFORNIA. I CALLED TOYOTA OF CA AND THEY SEEMED NICE AND TALKED ABOUT GIVING US A LOANER CAR. BOTH TOYOTA OF NASHUA, NH AND TOYOTA OF CALIFORNIA BOTH INSPECTED THE VAN AND SAID ?THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE VAN?. THEY SAID YOU CAN COME AND PICK IT UP. THERE ARE MANY YOUTUBE VIDEO SHOWING THIS PROBLEM AND EVEN RE-ENACTING THE SITUATION, YET TOYOTA CLAIMS USER ERROR. I HAVE GROWN UP WORKING ON CARS FOR ABOUT 35 YEARS, I FIXED AND DRIVEN CARS HARD. I'VE DONE THINGS WITH CARS THAT MOST PEOPLE ONLY SEE IN THE MOVIES. I CAN PROMISE YOU IT WAS NOT USER ERROR AND IT WAS NOT THE FLOOR MATS FACT!!! BEWARE TOYOTA & LEXUS OWNERS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

Vehicle began 'whirring' metal noise from underneath. Local mechanic said it was coming from rear differential. I took it to a Toyota dealer, they said rear differential coupler needs replacing ($2159) and drive shaft ($992). It seems the bearing ring inside this sealed unit has failed. Noise is continuous while driving, concern of part failure - we are taking vehicle on family vacation. Researching on - line it appears to be common problem with the Sienna's. Toyota had same issue with RAV 4's and issued recall but have not for the Sienna's. I called Toyota corporate in TX (got up 3 levels) to no avail, and it curt tone, they said they cannot help. Based on other similar stories on line from other Sienna owners, this seems to be a common very expensive design flaw problem with this vehicle.

Summary of Complaint

WE REALIZED THAT OUR VEHICLE HAD A FLAT TIRE. WHEN WE WENT TO ATTEMPT TO PUT ON THE SPARE, WE NOTICED THAT ALL OF THE LUG NUTS HAD "SWOLLEN" AND NONE OF THE LUG NUTS WOULD FIT IN THE CORRESPONDING SOCKET. ULTIMATELY, THE LUG NUT CAPS DELAMINATED, AND IT TOOK OVER AN HOUR TO TEAR THE CAPS FROM THE NUTS. IF THIS HAD HAPPENED ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY, ADDRESSING THIS ISSUE WOULD HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS. IT DOES NOT SEEM TO MAKE SENSE TO CONTINUE USING LUG NUTS WITH DECORATIVE CAPS FOR AESTHETIC REASONS WHILE IMPACTING THE SAFETY OF DRIVERS WITH FLAT TIRES.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 TOYOTA SIENNA RECENTLY BEGAN MAKING A LOUD WHINING NOISE FROM THE REAR AXLE AREA. UPON INSPECTION, WE WERE INFORMED THAT THE DIFFERENTIAL UNIT WAS FAILING AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THIS WOULD COST US BETWEEN $2,500-$3,000. AFTER SOME RESEARCH, I DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE SIENNA, LIKELY CAUSED BY A DESIGN FLAW. THE SAME UNIT WAS USED ON THE RAV-4, AND AFTER SIMILAR PROBLEMS SURFACED IT WAS RECALLED AND FIXED BY TOYOTA. GIVEN THE DANGER POSED BY FAILURE OF THIS PART TO A FAMILY VEHICLE, AND THE KNOWN EXISTENCE OF THE PROBLEM BY TOYOTA, IT SEEMS OBVIOUS THAT IT SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY RECALLED AND FIXED BY THE MANUFACTURER.

Summary of Complaint

BROUGHT CAR IN FOR AIRBAG SAFETY RECALL. WAS TOLD IT WAS COMPLETED. AFTER THIS RECEIVED ANOTHER RECALL MAILING FOR THE SAME PROBLEM. CALLED THE TOYOTA RECALL RESOLUTION TEAM NUMBER TO VERIFY. WAS TOLD THAT A TEMPORARY AIRBAG WAS INSTALLED AND THAT I NEEDED TO HAVE THE GOOD ONE REINSTALLED WHEN THEY GOT THEM IN. SHE CALLED THE DEALER TO SET UP AN APPOINTMENT THEN TOLD ME THAT IT WAS TAKEN CARE OF AND A NEW AIRBAG WAS NOT NEEDED. AND STATED THAT SHE WAS CONFUSED. AND THAT I NEEDED TO GO BACK TO THE DEALER TO GET A WRITTEN STATEMENT THAT THE WORK WAS DONE. I NOTICED AND EXPLAINED THAT IT LOOKS LIKE A SUBSTITUTE WAS MADE AND THE RECEIPT SAYS : 'BAG 0.8. 2007-2009 YARIS HATCHBACK 2007-2009 YARIS SEDAN'. SO IT LOOKS LIKE A TEMPORARY SUBSTITUTE WAS MADE AND THAT I WAS NOT INFORMED. I SAID THAT IF THEY GIVE WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION THAT THE REPAIR WAS MADE IT MAKES IT LEGALLY THEIR RESPONSIBILITY BUT THIS WOULD BE AFTER THE FACT IF A PROBLEM OR FATALITY WOULD OCCUR AND NOT SOLVE THE ISSUE OF ASSURING THAT A PROPER AIRBAG HAD BEEN INSTALLED. CAN YOU GIVE CLARIFICATION AND SUGGESTED FOLLOW UP (POSSIBLY THIRD PARTY) TO GUARANTEE SAFETY?

WHEN PRESSING THE BRAKE THE ENGINE REVS SUDDENLY AND TO VERY HIGH RPMS AND YOU HAVE TO PRESS DOWN ON THE BRAKE AND/OR THROW CAR INTO NEUTRAL/DRIVE AND THEN EVENTUALLY THE ISSUE RESOLVES.

PRESSED BRAKE HARD AND THRU THE CAR INTO PARK AND PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR AND THE ENGINE WENT BACK TO NORMAL. VERY SCARY.

TOYOTA WILL NOT CHANGE THE BEARING ($50 PLUS LABOR). THEY WILL ONLY CHANGE THE WHOLE COUPLER ($1800 PLUS LABOR) AS THEY STATE THE COUPLER IS NOT SERVICEABLE. MULTIPLE PEOPLE HAVE SERVICED THE WORKING COUPLER TO CHANGE JUST THE BEARING. TOYOTA RELEASED A SIMILAR TSB FOR THE RAV 4 WHERE THE COUPLER FAILED.

WAS DRIVING HOME FROM RUNNING ERRANDS, ABOUT A 4 MILE DRIVE AT 35 MILES/HR. AT A STOP LIGHT THERE SEEMED TO BE SOME SORT OF ELECTRICAL SURGE. ALL THE DASHBOARD LIGHTS FLASHED AND THE VEHICLE TURNED OFF. I WAS ABLE TO PUT THE CAR IN PARK AND RESTART IT. THERE WERE NO WARNING LIGHTS ON AFTER RESTARTING THE ENGINE, SO I ASSUMED IT WAS A FLUKE AND CONTINUED ON MY WAY HOME. A LITTLE FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD AT ANOTHER STOP LIGHT IT HAPPENED AGAIN. I PULLED INTO MY DRIVEWAY AND STARTED TO UNLOAD MY CAR WHEN I NOTICED SMOKE EMANATING FROM UNDER THE HOOD. I OPENED THE HOOD TO DISCOVER A SMALL FIRE COMING FROM A LARGE GROUP OF WRAPPED WIRES BEHIND THE BATTERY. I WAS ABLE TO PUT IT OUT QUICKLY WITH A FIRE EXTINGUISHER, BUT THE CAR IS COMPLETELY DEAD AND THE ENTIRE ELECTRICAL HARNESS NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AS WELL AS SOME OTHER NEARBY PARTS. THIS VEHICLE WAS WELL TAKEN CARE OF. THERE IS JUST UNDER 65,000 MILES ON IT AND I BROUGHT IT IN FOR IT'S 60K MAINTENANCE 6 MONTHS AGO (6/11/18). AT THAT TIME THEY ALSO TOOK CARE OF THE RECALLS FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG AND THE POWER SLIDING DOORS. SINCE I WAS ABLE TO CONTAIN THE FIRE QUICKLY, THIS VEHICLE SUFFERED MINIMAL ENGINE DAMAGE, SO I'M WONDERING IF IT SHOULD BE USED FOR INVESTIGATION PURPOSES BEFORE REPAIRS ARE MADE AS IT APPEARS THIS MAY HAVE HAPPENED WITH OTHER TOYOTA SIENNAS THAT SUFFERED MUCH GREATER DAMAGE.

Summary of Complaint

"TAKADA RECALL" I AM WRITING BECAUSE MY TAKADA AIRBAGS HAVE BEEN UNDER RECALL FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. EVERY SINGLE ATTEMPT (MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS) HAVE GONE UNRETURNED, DESPITE THE FACT THAT I HAVE CALLED 888-546-1750 ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS! BECAUSE THIS RECALL AS THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE EITHER INJURY OR DEATH, I WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE IN TAKADA, TOYOTA AND MY BEST INTEREST TO GET BACK TO ME. I AM VERY DISSATISFIED WITH THE RECALL AND VERY DISSATISFIED WITH HOW THE TOYOTA RECALL TEAM HAS NOT CONTACTED ME. THERE IS A SECOND RECALL ON THE DOORS FOR THE TOYOTA SIENNA. BECAUSE I CANNOT GET A HOLD OF THE RECALL TEAM, I CAN ALSO NOT SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TO GET THIS RECALL ADDRESSED IN MY VEHICLE. THIS IS UNEXCUSABLE!
