The recall began on July 14, 2016. I now expect the engine to die at any time with thrown rod. I told them that I never received a letter for the warranty enhancement. Those owners may contact Pontiac Customer Care at 1-800-762-2737. This car is past due for both time and miles on the warranty, so I'm hoping that the class action will require Toyota to fix this problem. It started making a knocking noise and acceleration wasn't right so I took it to my independent mechanic.
A search of the web shows this to be a common issue but no resolution. I would use what the manual recommends. A 5w20 won't hurt anything though. The recall is expected to began in January 2015. I'm sure they will fight if with everything they have.
However I did think it was unusual for such a seemingly dependable brand to have such extreme oil consumption. Since he was blocking the shopping center entrance 'some random guy' helped him push the car into a parking area. The name of my dealer is Royal Moore Toyota service located in Hillsboro, Oregon. I have done the whole oil consumption test with the dealership and they said that the car had hardly burned off any oil after the 1,200 miles of driving. The recall is expected to began in January 2015. Car is still using about a half a quart of oil every 700 miles.
Without passing the calibration test, the occupant sensing system may not operate as designed. The power window master switch assemblies in some of these vehicles were built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assemblies. The recall began on March 21, 2013. I should have asked her then why was there a letter allegedly sent then but they didn't tell me at the Toyota service department. Smoke is coming out my tailpipe. The power window master switch assemblies in some of these vehicles were built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assemblies.
We bought an ignition coil and spark plug and found a mechanic in the area to get us going again. There was no indication that the oil was out there were no signs when stopping the vehicle, the oil pressure gauge reported normal and there was still sufficient power in the engine. This issue has cause a financial strain, anxiety and questioning manufactures normally reliability. Her husband, David, has been at her side for 19 events, and her son, Wayne Hickman, joined in 2006. The affected vehicles may experience compression of the seat cushion which may damage the seat heater wiring.
I have been taking my car in to various car maintenance places for oil changes and mentioning the problem but no one told me there was a technical service bulletin issued regarding this problem. They said that since the car had oil which I had my mechanic put in a few days prior for safety that it wasn't a case of excessive oil consumption and did not fall under the warranty. A coworker of mine had his oil changed on a new Jeep and they didn't tighten the oil filter properly or used a defective one. There was no indication that this vehicle would go out or the extent of the problems. Luckily he was just entering bedford va and made it to the entrance of a shopping center before the car died. After reading some stories this seem like a Toyota issue that should have been repaired.
I haven't contacted Toyota yet as all of the last events happened in the last couple of days. Never got paperwork about that in the past. . Toyota's number for this recall is C0M. I myself had a 1999 Camry V6, and loved it.
Everything seemed fine until 2 months after driving the car we noticed it was burning through oil, 2. I did not know that it was a Toyota wide issue. While driving 60 mph, the vehicle turned off unexpectedly. Using more oil now than gas. And I got a letter from Toyota said that I need to bring the vehicle to near deal to fix.
The engine check light is on so I took it to the auto shop to get it checked out and the employee there told me to contact Toyota since there was a recall on the 2009 Camry engine. This is a know issue by Toyota and they are doing everything in their power to get around repairing a defective part. Now that I've taken the car to the dealer for this problem, an entry has been added to its service record which shows up on Carfax reflecting that I had the car tested for excessive oil consumption. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. Stand behind your product and fix the issue.
