Failure Date: 04/06/2015

My passenger airbag indicator was illuminating the "off" light when an adult was seated in my passenger seat. Diagnostics done at a Toyota dealership indicated I needed a new occupant detection ecu. It failed for unknown reasons. This was a $670 fix. They installed a new one and it did not work. They then installed another one, which did not work properly either. Finally, they installed a third one and it wasn't working properly either. I was told by the service guy that they were using parts that had "returned" stickers on the box and had already been opened. I was told that genuine, new parts were what I was being quoted for, but the service technician clearly stated that they were trying to install parts into my vehicle that had been returned for some reason. I am very concerned that Toyota is installing parts into my vehicle that were found to be defective in other vehicles. . ? I am also very concerned that the sensors that are supposed to activate the airbag, which is a vital safety feature, are not working. This is not something that should stop working in a vehicle of this age and mileage.

car   Air Bag Light On problem 4
Failure Date: 10/18/2011

Approx 1 year after purchasing the car, the passenger side airbag light came on showing the air bag was not working. I took the car to the Toyota dealer and was told they would have to recalibrate it, and I was charged approximately $90. 00 for the work. . It worked for approximately 2 weeks, at which time the light came on again showing the air bag was not working. I do not know if the airbag is defective or not, but I cannot afford to pay $90. 00 every two weeks to have an airbag re-calibrated. I have had no accidents with the car and the driver's side airbag is okay. What should I do.

Failure Date: 01/01/2009

Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6) I purchased a certified used Toyota car (vehicle VIN: [xxx]) on 12/22/2008 from fremont Toyota dealer ([xxx]), which leads a nightmare as it's a wrecked cert. Rejected car with 2 tire valve stems broken on day 1 and day 8 after purchase and another 2 tires flat again on may 10 1. The rear right tire valve stem broke on 12/23/2008 (the first day after purchase) and the tire pressure monitoring system indicator (tpws) was on so I drove the car to the service department on 12/24/2008. Dealer claim they fixed the problem and also checked all the other tires and make sure they are working. 2. On 1/1/2009, the front right tire valve stem broke again and the tpws was not on. This happened when we drove on highway 5 at 75 miles/hour and we don't even know the tire already 2/3 was flattened!! we happened to look for restaurant at that time and a person coming out of restaurant pointed to us this flat tire! if we did not exit for rest, all 5 passengers in the car could no longer be in this world now. 3. Further complete discovery on this car reveals: a. Bondo was applied on the following areas: left fender on rear behind wheel opening area; right door from upper center to bottom of door; and, rt quarter panel in front of wheel opening area the amount of bondo applied to the subject vehicle,clearly indicates the damage/wreck/repair in these areas were extensive. B. Sand scratched and dirt under paint are obvious in many areas, this is the result of a poor quality re-paint job. The re-paint of the vehicle is further evidenced by the paint mil gauge readings from 8 miles to 12 miles. This matches kearny mesa Toyota's 160 point rejection. C. The paint job alone estimate (not including the body repair) was over $2200 and yet was this re-paint was not reported. The faulty paint job is a known defect to anyone that looks at the vehicle in the automotive industry. D. The right fender was previously removed. And more.

car   Air Bag Light On problem 6
Failure Date: 08/01/2006

The passenger airbag stays off for a smaller adult in the passenger seat. (~95lbs). According to the service department at the Toyota dealership, this is normal, and that the adult may need to put on weight. I do not believe that the passenger airbag indicator should turn on and off intermittently, or stay off with an adult seated in the passenger seat. The passenger is seated correctly. Problem continues to persist for adults under 95lbs. The incident was reported to the dealership as well as Toyota. Apparently, Toyota now has a TSB out - TSB el005-05 to correct this safety issue. However, since the vehicle is out of warranty and there has been no recall, the issue has not been addressed in the vehicle.
