The factory installed alarm system may sound for no apparent reason. A revised hood latch assembly is available which should correct this concern.Google+

Reported problem earlier. Had the hood latch assembly replaced which cost $305. Have now have filed a claim with Toyota Customer service based on the recommendation of my Toyota dealership. Apparently the dealership is seeing quite a few of these repairs.

Alarm sounds, periodically, for no reason. Happened 3 times at dentist office; two weeks later at home, two days later at home again. Frustrating.

Alarm goes off in the middle of the night and I key fob will not shut it off. Last night it happened 3 times and I have the horn going off in my head. This should be a recall as I fell if a security system fails what can a consumer do other then go to the dealer. Toyota must know they have issues and should come clean and admit this a recall situation.

Alarm goes off for no reason. Keys are not anywhere where the alarm button might get pressed by accident. Started happening 5 days ago, is now happening about once or twice every day.

The alarm will go off for no apparent reason. The car will actually lock itself and then about a minute later the alarm will go off.
