Toyota Problems

Problem With Door Mechanism in Electric Sliding Doors

Models with electric sliding doors can develop problems with the door mechanism. The cable in the door becomes frayed, which will damage the electric motor.

Sludge Buildup on Engine Due to Infrequent Oil Changes

Sludge can build up in the engine because Toyota did not recommend frequent enough oil changes. Lexus will sometimes offer a discount on cleaning the engine if necessary. Owners who changed their oil every 3,000 miles did not experience these problems. This sludge build up can lead to excessive oil consumption.

Toyota Recalls

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or in some cases replace the air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Load Carrying Capacity Label Incorrect

The vehicle certification label may indicate the improper load carrying capacity rating for the vehicle. This is because accessories were added to them after the vehicle was built, changing the available load that the vehicle can handle carrying. Vehicle owners will be provided a corrected label and dealers will aid in installing them free of charge to resolve the concern.

Everyone who is one this board needs to make sure they call Toyota- not just your local dealer- because the girl I talked to said that they determine recalls partially based on how many complaints they get from the hotline.So...call!
I'm just giving a run down of most of the service I've had done to my '07 V6 Camry (which I bought new) to show how expensive it has been to keep it running properly. I really didn't think I'd have this many problems. I've previously owned 2 other Camry's and did not have this many issues. 118,000 - both alternator ($740) AND water pump need replacing (pump not replaced yet) 115,000 - rep...
