Known Problems
Toyota issued a recall on the brake master cylinder and will conduct any necessary repairs under the recall.

The automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

If the vehicle develops an annoying, clunking sound when driving over bumps it is usually the struts and strut bearing plates. These may need replacing at 100,000-125,000 miles or sooner. If the noise is a more of a squeak or groan, it can be usually be eliminated by spraying a light lubricant on the suspension bushings 1-2 times per year. 

Toyota has issued a recall because of a possible defect in the check valve that helps prevent spillage at the gasoline pump. A malfunction of this valve could result in a fuel fire in the presence of an ignition source. The dealer will inspect and repair the check valve if necessary.
