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

    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.

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

    I had the same problem for a couple of weeks, and then it went off at 4AM and took it to the dealership the next day. It cost me $290 to change the hood latch. Been 48 hours and nothing yet.

    Alarm goes off for no reason. Car must be locked for it to go off. Can't stop it by pressing the key fob. Very annoying and unsafe as I can't lock my car.

    Car alarm has gone off for no reason 3x in the last few days.
    I called the dealer & the woman I talked to said she "had never heard of that".
    A recall is definitely in order!

    Alarm goes off with nothing around to set it off--going off in the middle of the night--not great
