Toyota has known of this problem for years and has worked on the car last year to give a temporary fix, now a few months ago Toyota sends yet another recall for same parts, but yet the dealers nor Toyota has any idea of when this will be available, meanwhile we drive around in fear of unnecessary deployment of airbag. We have been in contact with Toyota and all the local dealers and no one can tell us anything, but on the news the reports say the airbags are being replaced.

Went to use high beams on desert road towards lancaster CA, put high beams on, they stayed on for about 3 minutes then all front lighting went out. Went to dealer (roseville Toyota) to check on the problem, dealer said they were not covered by warranty even though Toyota knows of problem. Will cost 3,000. 00 to repair with replaced headlight assemblies. Car has only 39,000 miles on it and an extended warranty.

My high beam and daytime running lights are both not working. The Toyota dealer acknowledged the problem and stated I need to replace the light assemblies along with a new type bulb. I see where this is a common problem with many Toyota cars and Toyota will not cover my car due to it being over their extended warranty period of 5 years by just over a month. I also have a Toyota platinum extended warranty but was told it does not cover my problem. I believe this is a safety issue which should be repaired by Toyota as they know of the problem but restrict the time for repairs for which they extended to 5 years but not for us who are just over by less than two months or even longer. I believe after researching this problem that my vehicle may have more lighting problems which are not present at this time. This is a safety issue and Toyota should be required to repair it at their expense as this is not a cheap repair of more than $1000 per light assembly.

Electronic control module (ecm) issue: problem w/ intermittent warning lights for air bag some time ago (researching date)- took vehicle to dealership. No more light, but vehicle began stalling/losing power while driving- rarely, but became more frequent over time. Instrument panel/check engine lights will illuminate- now every minute or so while driving. Other people have same problem- NHTSA id 10605681. Took vehicle to dealer late may. Dealer on phone w/ Toyota multiple times + had tech from another dealer come and look at vehicle - could not figure out what was wrong. Dealer now says the ecm faulty. Not repaired, but dealer wants to charge 8hrs of diagnostic time and not repaired - can dealer charge if recall item? my concern is that problem is more than air bags- faulty ecm results in loss of power/control when engine shuts down, stalls or experiences intermittent loss of power- vehicle no longer safe to operate. I cannot drive it; I cannot sell it. Called Toyota, asked for part # of recalled srs/ecm- was told only local dealer has part numbers. They took information and transferred me to "Toyota corporate"- operator id'd as Toyota corporate asked questions, indicated they had documented my file. When I asked operator to confirm items operator had chosen to document, operator refused to respond to my requests for confirmation- I asked for supervisor- was told "no supervisor" there. Operator threw me on hold (on hold for over 30 minutes w/ corporate then transferred me to NHTSA w/out operator ever coming back on the line prior to transfer (NHTSA conf # available). "corporate" indicated that Toyota has no control over dealers- they can charge whatever they want to diagnose even if related to recall notice. Loss of use over 1 month. Dealer said no new ecm replacement part available. Pretty sure recall remedy inadequate.

While driving in town at about 25 mph, the car will accelerate by itself to 30mph, even if the accelerator is released. Pushing down on the accelerator has no effect. The acceleration is brief and stops by itself. This has happened several times over the last few weeks. Cruise control not engaged. The car computer was re-flashed at the dealer year to address to address sensitive accelerator issues.

I was alone in the car and had driven into my driveway (after opening the garage door) to enter the garage. The car suddenly took off and before I knew, I had crashed into the side of the garage and went through it. The car smashed into gardening tools, snow shovels, lawn mower, leaf blower, trash cans, and flowering pots. It came to a stop partly by the coat closet wall that protrudes into the garage and partly by all the stuff that got caught under the car. The garage door railing was damaged and the door was hanging a few inches above my car. I heard things falling above me. I thought that the roof would collapse. I realized that the car was still revving and I shut it. I sat for a few minutes and then I opened the door and ran out into the house. The car, the garage, and garage contents were damaged. The airbags did not deploy. I think it was caused by unintended acceleration. I was driving at about 5 mph in the driveway and I have been doing this for the last 10 years. It appeared that the car just flew and I had no control over it.

Received recall notice from Toyota, March 2014 regarding internal short circuiting of the integrated circuits on the electronic control module. Contact Toyota sept 2014 regarding when this would be fixed. The customer support representative did not know. I believe Toyota has failed to remedy this defect within a reasonable time, that being 7 months from March to September. I am filling a vehicular safety complaint that Toyota has not addressed the recall in a timely manner which could cause inadvertent deployment of the air bags or seat belt pretensioners causing injury.
