Failure Date: 12/27/2013

Driving on highway, heat gauge spiked suddenly. While trying to bring the vehicle to stop and pull to the shoulder , engine is lost. I had the vehicle towed to a Toyota dealer and was told that engine was lost due to water pump failure. They estimated $ 6,000 cost for a replacement engine. Six months and less tan 5,000 miles before the incident, Toyota dealer offered $11,000 for the vehicle during the oil change service. Vehicle was always serviced at the Toyota dealer. Six months before the incident, I was told by the dealer that (when dealer offered $11,000), there might be a slight water leak, but, it is a known issue, and therefore, keep watching the coolant level. I kept watching the coolant level as they told me. Coolant level was normal before I started to drive right before the incident and within 50 miles of driving engine was lost. It was within an hour of checking the coolant level.

car   Water Pump problem 4
Failure Date: 03/19/2013

In March 2013, I took my car to my dealer for a scheduled oil change and also because I had noticed a ticking noise under the hood. The service technician stated that because it was a rainy day, he could not hear the ticking noise during his test drive. I was still concerned, and asked him if he was sure it was ok for me to continue driving it because I heard the noise every time I took off from a stop. He said it was fine to drive and to bring it back in if the noise continues. In may 2013, at 64,756 miles, I brought the car in again because the ticking noise was continuing and seemingly getting louder. A different technician checked it, and afterwards I received the devastating news that my car experienced "internal engine failure" and needed the engine replaced. I was given some price estimates for used engines, none of which were warrantied for more than a year. When I informed them of my inability to afford an engine replacement, Toyota suggested that my car undergo an oil consumption test by my dealer, which I did. After 1,000 miles, the dealer determined the car was not burning oil excessively. Toyota then offered no further assistance; the dealer then offered me a discount on the engine replacement. In all the years I owned the car, the check engine light had never once come on. (the only other issue I had had with the vehicle was a water pump failure on 5/22/2012, which was replaced at 56,891 miles. ) I have all documentation showing that timely oil changes were performed for the entire life of the vehicle.

On December 29, 2012 the dealer told me that the water pump was leaking and needed to be replacea as well as the 4 front struts. February 2014 took the car for an oil change 85 thousand miles. Told that my card did not have much oil, of course I blamed them, I thought they were lying. Because I always have my oil change every 5 thousand miles, so I asked them to check their records. I took the car to be inspected another mechanic, the car has no oil leak. I took the car to be inspected another mechanic, the car has no oil leak. I mechanic told me that that problems is with piston rings and it will cost me a lot to fix it. Since I cannot effort to get it fix I been adding 1. 5 quarter of oil every 2,000 miles.

I took my car for an oil change at 85 thousand miles to a local mechanic , and I was told that my card did not have much oil, of course I blamed them, I thought they were lying. I always have my oil change every 5 thousand miles and did not have a problem before. I took the car to be inspected by another mechanic; he found no oil leaks. The mechanic told me that the problem is with piston rings and it will cost me a lot to fix it. Since I cannot effort to get it fix right now, I been adding at least a 1. 5 quarter of oil every 2,000 miles. On December 2012 I had problems with 4 front struts leaking and water pump. Thank you very much maria.
