I'm wondering how I can get my car fixed from this electrical recall. The local Toyota dealer won't touch it. My car is dead because of this issue. I need to find a way for someone here to honor this recall. Any assistance you can give me would be a great help. Thank you. [email protected]


9/12/2010 - New owner of old car
I just adopted a 1999 Rav4 a few months ago. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was left in a strange place with a broken down heap I had just spent $900.00 "repairing".
I went to the local used car lot and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with this car (I'm sitting in it ad I type this on my iPod).
I couldn't be happier with this choice. It males me thankful that my car broke down

This car is slow getting started. But that's my only complaint. Two previous owners who took good care of the vehicle. Gas mileage is better than my Ford Escort.

Do you drive a 1999 TOYOTA RAV4?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
