Entire center console died-no radio, Bluetooth, navigation, etc. Dealer quotes $2400 for refurbished console. Outrageous, Toyota should issue a recall.

Center display does not respond, I have not fixed it and just use the controls on the steering wheel.

Dashboard display has malfunctioned 4 times. To turn off the car I hold the power button down for an extended time. The car finally turns off and the next time I start it the dashboard works. I wish Toyota would address this problem ... the dealer repair shop says they have never heard of this.

MFD failing on 2006 model so no heat/air conditioning/or defrost capabilities. Dealer quoted part as $7000 in Jan.2014 Looking at salvage lots and for independent mechanic to fix. Thumbs down to Toyota's greed.

Right side of Multi Info Panel is blank. Check dimmer, not the problem. The steering buttons seem to work. Can't check the settings because the panel won't light up on the right.

Center display will not respond to touch, have to use steering wheel controls for AC and stereo.

Multi Function display is on but doesn't function. AC went out last year and had to replace the front struts with only 50.000 miles. This car doesn't live up to the usual Toyota reliability. I may not buy one again.

Display lights up, but won't respond to touch. Was told at dealer that it would cost $1500 to fix it. On a 4-year old car?????

I have the same problem and the shop wanted $2000 to fix it. No map, display is not responsive and this video explains perfectly.
Middle computer console stopped working correctly. Now it shows info in blinking mess. Toyota said they don't fix them they only replace them (for a lot of money). They can be fixed so I will need to find someone to repair it.
