Summary of Complaint

THE LENS COVER ON VEHICLE HEADLIGHTS ARE NOT CLEAR AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF USE, THEY ARE BECOMING FOGGED OVER BECAUSE THEY ARE MADE OUT OF PLASTIC AND THE SAND FROM OTHER VEHICLES GOING DOWN THE ROAD SANDBLAST THEM. THIS CAUSES THE HEADLIGHT TO NOT PROJECT THE LIGHT DOWN THE ROAD CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO OUT DRIVE THE HEADLIGHTS. THIS CAN CAUSE VEHICLE ACCIDENTS AND PEDESTRIAN INVOLVED ACCIDENTS. THEY USED TO BE MADE FROM GLASS AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THIS IS NOT A SAFETY ISSUE THAT IS BEING ADDRESSED. THANK YOU.

Summary of Complaint

I PUT VEHICLE IN PARK AND GOT OUT TO CLOSE A GATE ON MY FARM PROPERTY. WHEN I REALIZED THE VEHICLE STARTED ROLLING BACKWARDS, I TRIED TO GET BACK IN TO STOP IT. THE DOOR KNOCKED ME DOWN AND PICK UP ALMOST RAN OVER ME. I DID A BACKWARDS SUMMERSALT TO GET OUT OF THE WAY OF ROLLING PICKUP. WHEN I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GET UP AND GET TO PICK UP, IT HAD SLOWED DUE TO THE JACK KNIFING OF THE BALE BUGGY I WAS TOWING. PLASTIC AND RUBBER IN THE SHIFTER HAD TO BE PUSHED BACK INSIDE SHIFTER CASE BEFORE I COULD PUT BACK IN PARK POSITION. LATER THAT SAME DAY, I PUT IN PARK IN PARKING LOT AND IT JUMPED INTO REVERSE AGAIN. LUCKILY I WAS STILL IN VEHICLE. I BELIEVE THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SHIFTER CONSOLE BUT ACTUAL PROBLEM IS UNKNOWN. THIS HAS HAPPENED A TOTAL OF 4 TIMES. TWICE I WAS OUT OF VEHICLE. TWICE I WAS STILL IN DRIVERS SEAT. ONLY ONE TIME DID THIS PROBLEM RESULT IN INJURY.

INSPECTION REVEALED THAT THE REAR BRAKE DISKS ARE RUBBING ON THE METAL BRAKE DISK SHIELD DURING LATERAL LOADING EXPERIENCED IN TURNS. THE PROBLEM HAS GOTTEN MORE FREQUENT AND MORE PRONOUNCED OVER THE PAST 12-18 MONTHS AND 10-15K MILES. TOYOTA BELIEVES THE CAUSE IS FAILED REAR AXLE BEARINGS. THE VEHICLE HAS ABOUT 72K MILES AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN SERVICED REGULARLY AND AT A TOYOTA DEALERSHIP. TOYOTA HAS A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN (T-SB-0013-13) ON THE ISSUE BUT THEY CLAIM THIS IS NORMAL WEAR AND WILL NOT WARRANTY THE PROBLEM. IN MY OPINION THIS IS A SERIOUS DEFECT OF A MAJOR DRIVE TRAIN SYSTEM AND NOT NORMAL WEAR.

Summary of Complaint

CAM TOWER SEAL PROBLEMS CURRENTLY MY TUNDRA IS HAVING A CAMSHAFT TOWER SEALS PROBLEM/GASKET. I THOUGHT MY TRUCK WAS GOING TO CATCH ON FIRE SEVERAL TIMES WITH MY GRAND KIDS INSIDE WHILE DRIVING.'.WITH IT SMOKING ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. THIS IS HIGHLY UNUSUAL FOR A TOYOTA. I THOUGHT IT WOULD HAVE STOPPED BY NOW, BUT IT HAS NOT. THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROBLEM SINCE I PURCHASED THE TRUCK. IN DOING MY RESEARCH, WHICH I UNDERSTAND IS A BIG REPAIR JOB AS IT REQUIRES DISMANTLING PART OF THE ENGINE; THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS MODEL YEAR THAT I CURRENTLY OWN (2011). THERE ARE ALSO SEVERAL OTHER MODEL YEARS THAT IT IS ALSO HAPPENING AS WELL (2011-13), IN WHICH AGAIN CAN CAUSE THE TRUCK TO CATCH FIRE, HARMING OR EVEN KILLING SOMEONE. IF NOT COMPLETED NOW OR TAKE ANY ACTION, TOYOTA COULD LOSE MONEY. YOU COULD EVEN STOP LAWSUITS THAT WILL BE FORTHCOMING WITH THIS ISSUE IF SOMEONE IS HARMED OR EVEN KILLED. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS!! THIS IS MY SIXTH TOYOTA PURCHASE. THE MAIN REASONS FOR ME CHOOSING TOYOTA OVER FORD, GM, ETC. ARE QUALITY AND RELIABILITY. I WOULD LIKE TOYOTA TO FIX MY ISSUE AT NO COST TO ME AND MAYBE RECALL THIS ERROR THAT TOYOTA SHOULD BE AWARE OF ON THESE MODEL TUNDRA TRUCKS. THIS HONEST GESTURE WOULD BOLSTER MY CONFIDENCE IN THE REASONS I MADE IN PURCHASING A TOYOTA.
