Summary of Complaint

WITH THE CAR IN PARK AND ATTEMPTING TO OPEN THE DRIVER SIDE SLIDING DOOR, IT REFUSES TO OPEN AND STOPS ABRUPTLY DURING THE SLIDE ONLY OPENING A FEW INCHES (NOT ENOUGH TO RENDER THE OPENING USABLE) BECAUSE THE FUEL DOOR IS NOT SUFFICIENTLY CLOSED TO DEPRESS THE PUSH BUTTON THAT TELLS THE VAN'S SYSTEM THAT THE FUEL DOOR IS FULLY SHUT. THUS THE SLIDING DOOR STOPS ABRUPTLY (AS PROGRAMMED) TO AVOID A COLLISION WITH AN OPEN FUEL DOOR. HOWEVER, THAT IS NOT THE CASE HERE. UPON FURTHER INSPECTION IT IS NOTICED THAT THE SPRING ON THE PUSH BUTTON HAS SUCH A SEVERE STIFFNESS THAT THE FUEL DOOR'S HINGE SYSTEM WAS NOT DESIGNED DURABLE ENOUGH TO COMPENSATE FOR THE OUTWARD LOAD EXERTED BY THE PUSH BUTTON WHEN THE FUEL DOOR IS CLOSED AND LOCKED. FOR THIS REASON, THE FUEL DOOR HINGE, OVER TIME, EXPERIENCES A FATIGUE FAILURE AT THE TOP OF THE HINGE ONLY. THAT IS TO SAY, THE LOWER HALF OF THE HINGE REMAINS CONNECTED AND OPERABLE WHILE THE TOP HALF OF THE HINGE SHEARS IN TWAIN. NOW SHEARED, THE FUEL DOOR IS PUSHED FREELY AWAY BY THE PUSH BUTTON AND THE TOP FORWARD MOST CORNER OF THE FUEL DOOR PROTRUDES PAST THE VAN'S PROFILE BY HALF AN INCH OR MORE. IT IS THE FAILURE OF THE FUEL DOOR HINGE, CREATED BY THE OVERDESIGN OF THE SPRING ON THE PUSH BUTTON, THAT ALLOWS THE DOOR TO NOT OPEN PROPERLY DESPITE THE DRIVER DOING EVERYTHING TO KEEP THE PATH OF THE DOOR CLEAR. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EMBARKING, THIS RENDERS THE SLIDING ACCESS POINT AS DIFFICULT AS YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY PUSH AGAINST THE FUEL DOOR WHEN OPENING THE SLIDING DOOR UNTIL IT HALFWAY OPEN. FOR DISEMBARKING THIS IS THE SAFETY HAZARD, AS THERE IS NO WAY TO "RIG" THE SYSTEM TO OPERATE FROM THE INSIDE AND DURING EMERGENCY EGRESS FROM THE VEHICLE. IF THE PASSENGER DOOR IS BLOCKED OR BROKEN AS THE RESULT OF A HAZARD OR CRASH, OCCUPANTS IN THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE CAN BECOME TRAPPED INSIDE BEING FORCED TO CLIMB INTO THE FRONT SEAT OR TRUNK

Summary of Complaint

THIS IS A FOLLOW UP TO AN EARLIER COMPLAINT REGARDING THE SLIDING DOORS ON MY 2014 TOYOTA SIENNA NOT CLOSING. THEIR WAS A RECALL AND WARRANTY EXTENSIONS ISSUED. I HAD THE RECALL ISSUE ADDRESSED, WHICH DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM, SO AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GET THE LOCAL TOYOTA DEALER TO TAKE CARE OF THE WARRANTY EXTENSIONS ADDRESSED, AND STILL NOT FIXED. I WAS THEN TOLD THAT UNTIL I GET THE HINGES ON THESE DOORS REPLACED THE PROBLEM WILL CONTINUE. SO, AFTER ALL THAT, I AM TOLD THAT THE HINGES ARE THE PROBLEM! THE WARRANTY COVERAGE PROGRAM I PURCHASED DOES NOT COVER THE HINGES (I PURCHASED ONE OF THE BEST WARRANTIES) AND THE HINGES ARE GOING TO COST ME $758. SHOULDN'T THEIR BE A RECALL ON THE HINGES TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM? I SURE AM HOPING SO.

I DRIVE THIS VEHICLE AS A "KID SHUTTLE" SO THERE IS NO HARD DRIVING, NO GRAVEL ROAD'S AND NO OFF ROADING. I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT GOES THROUGH TIRES SO BAD.

Summary of Complaint

ON OCTOBER 15TH AT APPROXIMATELY 3:30 PM (CT) MY 2014 TOYOTA SIENNA WAS PARKED IN MY DRIVEWAY WITH THE ENGINE ON, UNATTENDED, WHEN IT MOVED FORWARD UP THE SLIGHT INCLINE OF MY DRIVEWAY, STRUCK ANOTHER VEHICLE THAT WAS PARKED IN THE GARAGE AND KEPT MOVING FORWARD UNTIL IT STRUCK THE FRONT WALL OF THE GARAGE. PRIOR TO THE ACCIDENT, I HAD REVERSED THE VAN OUT OF THE GARAGE AND LEFT THE VAN IGNITION ON AND IN PARK AS I EXITED. I KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT THE VAN WAS IN THE PARK POSITION SINCE THE AUTOMATIC LOCKS LET ME EXIT THE VEHICLE WITHOUT HAVING TO MANUALLY UNLOCK THEM AND THE ALARMS DID NOT SOUND AS I EXITED. THE VAN ALSO DID NOT ROLL FORWARD IR BACKWARD AS I EXITED. I THEN WALKED IN FRONT OF THE VAN TO ENTER MY HOUSE THROUGH THE GARAGE. I WAS IN THE HOUSE FOR LESS THAN 5 MINUTES WHEN I HEARD THE LOUD CRASH OF THE VAN STRIKING THE GARAGE WALL. MY TOYOTA SIENNA WAS MANUFACTURED ON JUNE 6, 2014. AFTER THE ACCIDENT I DISCOVERED THERE IS AN ACTIVE RECALL (RECALL: TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE/ROLLAWAY/FMVSS 102) FOR AN ISSUE THAT CAUSES ROLLAWAYS EFFECTING CARS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN JUNE 17, 2014 THROUGH JUNE 24, 2014. I TOOK MY VAN TO TOYOTA EXPECTING MY ISSUE TO BE RELATED TO THIS RECALL. TOYOTA HAD THE BLACK BOX INSPECTED AND THE TRANSMISSION INSPECTED AND DETERMINED THEY WERE NOT LIABLE SINCE THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO REPLICATE THE ISSUE AND DID NOT FIND ANY DEFECTS. WHEN I TOOK MY CAR IN ORIGINALLY THE TECHNICIAN STATED THAT THERE WAS NOT A GOOD WAY TO DETERMINE IF THE SHIFT CABLE WAS DEFECTIVE AND THEY WERE SIMPLY REPLACING THE PART AS PART OF THE RECALL, WHICH MY CAR DID NOT QUALIFY FOR SINCE IT WAS MANUFACTURED 11 DAYS PRIOR. A CAR SHOULD NEVER MOVE ITSELF FROM THE PARK POSITION AND SOMETHING HAS TO BE FAULTY WITH THE CAR IN ORDER FOR IT TO DO SO.

Summary of Complaint

3 TIMES THIS YEAR, WHEN SLOWING TO A STOP WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE, THE CAR SUDDENLY ACCELERATED, REQUIRING ME TO APPLY AS MUCH BRAKE PEDAL PRESSURE AS I COULD, AS WELL AS SHIFTING TO NEUTRAL TO STOP THE CAR. THIS HAS OCCURRED ONCE WHEN COMING UP TO A STOP SIGN, AND TWICE WHILE PULLING INTO A PARKING SPACE. BOTH TIMES WHEN PULLING INTO THE PARKING SPACE, I WAS BARELY ABLE TO STOP IN TIME, ALMOST HITTING A CAR IN THE SPACE IN FRONT OF ME. AFTER THE LAST TIME THIS OCCURRED (7/3/2020), THE CAR WAS TAKEN TO ST. CHARLES TOYOTA ON 7/6, WHERE THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE. THIS STARTED JUST THIS YEAR; THE VEHICLE HAS APPROX. 70,000 MILES ON IT. WE HAVE OWNED THE VEHICLE SINCE NEW - IT DID NOT DO THIS FOR THE FIRST 4.5 YEARS OF SERVICE.

Summary of Complaint

ON 12/20/19 IN MY 2014 TOYOTA SIENNA THE SLIDING DOOR NEXT TO MY 3 YEAR OLD OPENED WHILE I WAS DRIVING. I WAS IN THE MIDST OF ACCELERATING AFTER A LIGHT TURNED GREEN WHEN THE CAR STARTED NOTIFYING ME THAT A DOOR WAS AJAR AND THE PASSENGER-SIDE SLIDING DOOR STARTED OPENING. THE DOOR OPENED FULLY AND REMAINED OPEN AS I WAS AT SPEED IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION. NOTE THAT ALL DOORS WERE CLOSED AND LATCHED BEFORE I PUT THE VEHICLE IN DRIVE, AND THIS ONLY OCCURRED AFTER A FEW MILES OF DRIVING. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY REPLACED THE LATCH ASSEMBLY IN BOTH SLIDING DOORS. THE DEALERSHIP COULDN'T TELL ME WHAT FAILED OR IF THE REPLACED LATCHES WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM, SO I CALLED TOYOTA CORP. I LEARNED THAT TOYOTA ALREADY KNEW ABOUT THIS ISSUE. WHEN I ASKED IF THEY COULD ASSURE ME THAT THE SLIDING DOORS WOULDN'T OPEN WHILE DRIVING AGAIN, THEY COULDN'T. THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY COULDN'T CONFIRM THAT THE LATCHES WERE THE PROBLEM, AND WHILE THE REPLACEMENT LATCH HAS A DIFFERENT MODEL NUMBER THAN THE ORIGINAL, THEY DON'T KNOW IF IT IS IN FACT A DIFFERENT PART AND IF SO, HOW. THE ONLY ASSURANCE THAT TOYOTA COULD GIVE ME IS THAT 'OF THE PEOPLE IN YOUR REGION THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED TO, IT HASN'T HAPPENED A SECOND TIME THAT WE KNOW OF'. THE MORE QUESTIONS I ASKED, THE CLEARER IT BECAME THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN AGAIN. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ISSUE IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FROM THE '16 RECALL THAT INVOLVED SLIDING DOORS OPENING WHILE DRIVING (ALL ASSOCIATED RECALLS HAD BEEN PERFORMED BY TOYOTA DEALERSHIPS PRIOR TO THIS INCIDENT). WE HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY REPORTED THIS TO NHSA AS WE HAD ASSUMED THAT TOYOTA REPORTED THIS INCIDENT AS PART OF OUR CASE WITH THEM.

Summary of Complaint

VEHICLE STOPPED ABRUPTLY WITH A SHAKE WHILE REDUCING SPEED AT A TRAFFIC SIGNAL. I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. A MILD BURNING SMELL CAME OUT FROM THE HOOD. THE CAR WAS SERVICED ONE MONTH BACK AND AS PART OF IT THEY DID 128 POINT( DO NOT REMEMBER EXACT NUMBER ) AND ALL REPORTED ISSUES WERE FIXED. AROUND $1000/- WAS SPENT ON THE CAR. SINCE BATTERY WAS JUST 1 YEAR OLD, I DID NOT EXPECT A PROBLEM WITH THE BATTERY AS WELL. STILL I SWITCHED OFF ALL LIGHTS AND TRIED TO RESTART. THERE WAS NO FURTHER RESPONSE FROM THE VEHICLE. I WAS BLOCKING TRAFFIC FROM BEHIND AND POLICE CAME TO CONTROL TRAFFIC. ONLY OPTION WAS TO TOW THE VEHICLE. I TOOK IT TO THE SAME TOYOTA AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER WHERE I DID THE PREVIOUS SERVICE ( I HAD PURCHASED THE CAR FROM THE SAME DEALER ). NEXT DAY TOYOTA SERVICE STAFF CALLED ME AND ASKED DETAILS OF WHAT HAPPENED. BY EVENING THEY SAID THAT SOME SPRING BREAK IN CYLINDER 4 WHICH CLOGGED AT SOME OTHER PART WITHIN THE ENGINE. IN THE PROCESS, THERE ARE SCRATCHES IN OTHER PARTS AND THE ENGINE OIL WAS FILLED WITH METAL PARTS. SENIOR TECHNICIAN SAID THIS IS A MAJOR ISSUE AND THEY HAVE INVITED TOYOTA FIELD ENGINEER TO COME AND INSPECT THE ENGINE AND ASSOCIATED ISSUES. PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT IS THAT THE ENGINE MIGHT NEED A REPLACEMENT AS CHANGING FEW PARTS MAY NOT BE SUFFICIENT TO KEEP THE VEHICLE SAFE BACK ON STREET. INCIDENT HAPPENED IN CITY STREET AND WHEN THE SPEED WAS LOWERED TO 20. TODAY IS MONDAY, BUT TOYOTA DEALER WHO IS DOING THE SERVICE HAS NOT UPDATED ME YET WITH THE MAGNITUDE OF COMPLETE PROBLEM NOR THE TIME THEY NEED. I AM HEART BROKEN TO HEAR THAT THE ROUGH ORDER MAGNITUDE COST TO FIX THE CAR IS BETWEEN $18K TO $20K.

Summary of Complaint

STARTED HAVING ISSUES WITH LEFT & RIGHT SLIDING DOORS NOT CLOSING ON 2014 TOYOTA SIENNA ROUGHLY 18 MONTHS AFTER PURCHASE. LATER RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE FOR THE INSTRUMENT PANEL JUNCTION BLOCK AND NEW WIRE HARNESSES AS WELL AS WARRANTY ENHANCEMENTS FOR SLIDING DOOR FRONT AND REAR LOCK ASSEMBLIES. BROUGHT IN TO WHITE RIVER TOYOTA IN WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VT FOR REPAIR AND WAS TOLD THAT ALL THAT COULD BE DONE WAS THE RECALL ITEM AS THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE SLIDING DOOR ISSUE NOT CLOSING. HAVE CONTINUED TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM AND HAVE HAD TO CLOSE DOORS MANUALLY. BROUGHT IN AGAIN TO HAVE REPAIRED APPROXIMATELY A YEAR LATER AND WAS LED TO BELIEVE THE WARRANTY ENHANCEMENT REPAIRS WOULD BE DONE ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT THEY NEEDED TO ORDER THE PARTS AND THAT THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDED THE REPLACEMENT OF BOTH SLIDING DOOR HINGES AT A COST OF $758. THE EXTRACARE WARRANTY THAT I HAD PURCHASED WHEN I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE WILL NOT COVER THE HINGES AS THESE WERE NOT COVERED WHEN THE WARRANTY WAS PURCHASED. THIS VEHICLE IS A 2014 AND I STARTED HAVING THESE ISSUES WITHIN TWO YEARS OF PURCHASE. WHY ISN'T TOYOTA STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE AND FIXING THESE ISSUES? THESE PROBLEMS ARE WELL DOCUMENTED AND TOYOTA SUPPOSEDLY PRIDES THEMSELVES ON CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. ARE THEY WAITING UNTIL THESE DOORS CAN'T BE CLOSED AT ALL AND/OR FALL OFF BEFORE THEY WILL BE FORCED TO FIX? I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER TOYOTA OR RECOMMEND A TOYOTA FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND SAFETY DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE THEIR #1 PRIORITY.

Summary of Complaint

THE FUEL DOOR HINGE HAS BROKEN LOOSE DUE TO THE SLIDING DOOR SAFETY BUTTON (MECHANISM) THAT IS EXERTING TO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE INSIDE OF THE FUEL DOOR. THE UPPER LEFT PORTION OF THE FUEL DOOR. THIS PLUNGER EXERTS SO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE FUEL DOOR THAT IT WARPS/FLEXES THE GAS DOOR AWAY FROM THE BODY. IT TAKES AN EXTREME AMOUNT OF FORCE TO PUSH THIS SAFETY BUTTON (PLUNGER) IN. THIS PLUNGER CLEARLY WAS NOT DESIGNED PROPERLY. NOW, THE DRIVER SIDE SLIDER DOOR WILL NOT OPERATE DUE TO THE PLUNGER/MECHANISM NOT BEING FULLY DEPRESSED IN. THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN IF SOMEONE NEEDED TO EXIT THE VEHICLE IN AN EMERGENCY.
