11/17/2015 - TAYLORSVILLE, UT
RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE ON AIR BAG AND MADE ON-LINE APPOINTMENT WITH LARRY MILLER TOYOTA FOR NEXT WEEK WITH THE RECALL INFO AND MY VEHICLE VIN NUMBER. NOTICE SAID REPAIR WOULD TAKE 1 1/2 HOUR. LEFT CAR AT 8AM, AT 2 PM RECEIVED CALL FROM DEALER SUGGESTING I DO OVER $1,000 IN REPAIRS & OH BY THE WAY, THE RECALL COULD NOT BE DONE TILL THEY ORDERED A PART. NOTHING IN THE RECALL, PRE-APPOINTMENT EMAILS FROM DEALER OR IN DISCUSSION WHEN I DROPPED OFF THE CAR SAID ANYTHING ABOUT A PART NEEDING TO BE ORDERED. THEN THEY TRY TO SELL ME REPAIRS THAT I DIDN'T ASK THEM TO EVEN LOOK AT?

RAV4 WAS TOTAL STOPPED ON A STOP SIGN. ON TAKING THE FOOT OFF THE BRAKE PADDLE TO MOVE AHEAD ON GREEN SIGNAL, EVEN BEFORE THE FOOT TOUCHED THE ACCELERATOR PADDLE THE VEHICLE ACCELERATED AT HIGH SPEED INTO THE VEHICLE IN FRONT. THE DRIVER HAS BEEN DRIVING THIS RAV4 FOR FEW YEARS AND HAS A VERY CLEAN DRIVING RECORD AND WAS AT REGULAR UNIVERSITY STOP. THE DAMAGE WAS SO BAD THAT THE VEHICLE WAS TOTALLED BY INSURANCE. THE DAMAGE LOOKS LIKE A HIGH SPEED IMPACT. A OLD 2005 RAV4 WITH 122000 MILES ON IT CANNOT MOVE THAT FAST EVEN IF TRIED. THE DAMAGE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. THE POLICE OFFICER WAS INFORMED THAT THE INCIDENT WAS CONFUSING AND LATER THINKING BACK, IT LOOKED IMPOSSIBLE TO BE BECAUSE OF HUMAN ERROR EVEN IF TRIED. THE HOUSEHOLD HAS CLEAN RECORD (NO TICKETS, NO ACCIDENTS FROM US) ON 3 VEHICLES FOR PAST 15 YEARS. THE INCIDENT HAPPENED ON A REGULAR DAILY UNIVERSITY STOP WHERE THE VEHICLES ARE DRIVEN SLOWLY ANYWAYS. THE DAMAGE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF THAT THE VEHICLE HAD UNCONTROLLABLE SITUATION. INCIDENT HAPPENED MOVING FROM A DEAD TOTAL STOPPED VEHICLE (0 MPH). BUT THE DAMAGE LOOKS LIKE THE VEHICLE CRASHED IN WITH A HIGH SPEED. BOTH THE DRIVER AND THE OTHER DRIVER WERE CONFUSED, AS NOTED TO THE ATTENDING POLICE OFFICER.

I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM TOYOTA ABOUT A SAFETY RECALL MID SUMMER. IT SAID I WOULD RECEIVE A SECOND LETTER WHEN A REMEDY WAS AVAILABLE AND I HAVE HEARD NOTHING SINCE. THE ISSUE IS THAT THERE COULD BE A POTENTIAL FOR MOISTURE INTRUSION THAT COULD MAKE THE AIRBAG INFLATOR MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO RUPTURE DURING A CRASH. IF THIS HAPPENED METAL FRAGMENTS COULD STRIKE THE DRIVER OR OTHER PASSENGERS RESULTING IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. Y 26 YR OLD SON IS DRIVING THIS CAR NOW AND I BELIEVE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONTACTED WITH A REMEDY BY NOW, CONSIDERING THE POSSIBLE DANGER. I WAS TOLD TO FILE A COMPLAINT HERE.
