I took my 2002 Toyota Rav4 to the dealership on 6/27/08- harsh shifting. I was told there was a problem with the auto transmission and it would cost thousands to fix it. Told O.K. to drive it with very harsh shifting(told O.K. for a long time). Was told there were no recalls, bulletins, etc. for this vehicle. Diagnostic code= P0755 from computer check on that date.

Problems with harsh shifting worsened, took it back to dealership on 11/28/08. I did find a TSB -(code- P0755)technical service bulletin # TC002-06 from 3/06. Presented the TSB to the service department- they acted surprised- said they haven't heard of any problems with 2002 Rav4. Asked the service manager why this TSB wasn't referenced back in 6/08. The entire dealership had no explanation for this- 'was just overlooked'. Note- this entire 'fix' under the Toyota Federal Emissions Warranty would have completely covered this repair.
I feel that this dealership intentionally withheld critical information from me. I think that the reason that this happened is that this dealership is trying to collect 100 % real money from us- the unsuspecting consumers, instead of collecting a percentage on the warranty money as referenced above.
I am done with this dealership.

GOOD JOB, SUEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, December 08, 2008

Sueo, Maybe the 'Toyota Christmas Songs' are helping to get awareness to all the problems at Toyota & their Network of Dealers, huh?

It IS possible, isn't it? I'll compose a new 'Toyota Christmas Song' soon for you! Maybe it can be to the tune of- 'WHITE CHRISTMAS', huh?

Possibly something like this-

1, 2, 3, 4

Sueo's dreaming of a smooth tranny
Just like the one she used to know.........


WHY NOT? WRITE A SONG- YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2002 Toyota Rav4 repaired by Precision Toyota no charge 12/1/08

AUTHOR: Sueo - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, December 05, 2008

I took my 2002 Rav4 to Precision Toyota of Tucson on 12/1/08. My vehicle was completely fixed that day and at no charge for the repair. There is a lot of difference between Desert Toyota (bad) and Precision Toyota (good).
I cannot understand how a business can operate and rip-off consumers so badly!
Anyone taking their vehicle for repairs MUST check the internet and whatever other sources are available to check for technical service bulletins, recalls and repairs within warranty parameters. The dealer CANNOT be trusted at any time!

Karl has the same mentality as 'Chuckie' from Phenix, Alabama. No eyes or ears, just a mouth and motor. Don't get in his way, or he will 'run over' you and just keep on going.

It is obvious, from his fanatical and desperate rants, that someone lowered his IQ too far during the experiment! He needs to find some good cartoons and watch them instead of demanding attention from everyone else. Attention Deficit disorder(ADD) can be helped considerably by suitable mental care.

He doesn't care about authors problems, just his own 'world class' ego and hunger for attention. Watch his next post, and see what I mean.

Someone needs to make up a Christmas song about 'ranting Karl', and post it on the Toyota threads.

'SLEIGH RIDE TOGETHER WITH YOU'.

You know how it goes; like this-

Just hear those sleigh bells jing-a-ling
Ring ring ring ring-a ling too
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you!

Here we go- 1, 2, 3

Just hear those Camrys sludging
RAV-4's not budging it's true
Go out and get a Honda
'Cause they're not filled up with poo!

Those airbags they're not working
Transmissions jerking you too
Another bad Solara
One built in 2002!

Hurry-up hurry-up hurry-up let's go
Just call for a tow
I bought a Toyota it won't go!

We got tricked we got scammed and we all are broke
Mine's blowin' blue smoke
We're living in a land of lies and Toyota is one big joke!

Just keep these songs a coming
'Cause we're just humming it's true
Toyota's stock is falling
And big-shot's crying BOO-h*o!

I guess this song is over
No four leaf clover for you
Another RAV-4 sludging
'Cause it's all filled up with POO!!!!!

End.

Please don't forget to 'Google' this- RIP OFF REPORT TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION USA MANIPULATION, and read that Ripoff Report, and all of the Updates to that Report. Make sure to read all of the poems too. 'USA POEM' is my favorite!

YOU CAN PUT PLASTIC LEMONS ALL OVER YOUR TOYOTA......

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, December 02, 2008

RAV-4 and park it just off of the Dealership's property & pass out copies of your Ripoff Report to everyone driving by! Another Toyota owner did this with his 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid that had a SLUDGE INFECTED ENGINE and the Dealership finally settled with him because he was creating a big scene!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU MUST EXPOSE the problem to MANY PEOPLE in your area by doing something like this. If you did this, the Dealership would probably pay for the repairs because an event like that would most certainly hurt their sales of new & used Toyotas. It would also alert all of those who currently have a Toyota to the problem!!!

JUST DO IT!!!! It's 100% TRUE, and it's 100% LEGAL!!!!! You might even make the evening News in your town! You can alert all the News Stations about what you are going to do. They might come out and put you & the Dealership on camera. I'll bet that the General Manager of that Dealership would pay for your repairs on your RAV-4.

ANYONE can do it!!!!!!! ANYONE can make a big sign that also says this-

YOUR LIFE COULD BE IN DANGER IF YOU HAVE A TOYOTA BECAUSE........

(And then pass out fliers that says this)- Please 'Google' this- ENGINE SLUDGE, and go to the consumeraffairs website about Toyota Engine Problems and click on 'Airbags' when you are there and read all of the AIRBAGS complaints from Toyota owners whose AIRBAGS are NOT DEPLOYING when they are in accidents in their TOYOTA VEHICLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WARNING!!!!!!!! URGENT ALERT!!!!!!!!

Maybe someone will do it someday, huh??? Even I CAN DO IT, right? I could shut down a Toyota Dealer if I really wanted to, correct? NO ONE in their right mind would buy a new or used Toyota if they read all those AIRBAGS complaints at the consumeraffairs website, would they????????????? And just think if they read all of the ENGINE COMPLAINTS too???? WOW!!!!!!!!!!! What a nightmare for Toyota, huh?
