Failure Date: 08/26/2015

I received a letter from Toyota in March 2014 notifying me of a safety recall involving the electronic control module for the supplemental restraint system. I took the vehicle to the local dealer to have the remedy installed, which they did. In approximately February of 2015 (six months ago) I received a second letter informing me that the original remedy is not sufficient, that the srs ecu must also be replaced and I would receive notification when the parts were available to correct the problem. After six months I have heard nothing else and when I spoke to the Toyota case manager today she indicated that she had no information to give me regarding the availability of this safety recall. I don't believe that this is a reasonable response from Toyota regarding this safety fix and I don't believe that Toyota is making a good faith effort to resolve the problem. My case number with Toyota is 1508243039.

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.

I received a recall notice on my vehicle on February 6, 2014 and every time I have called the dealership to have my hvac assembly repaired they tell me that the parts are on backorder. I feel like they are putting me and my safety at risk by not producing a fix for this recall.
