Complaint - Electrical System

MY VEHICLE HAS AN ISSUE WITH THE DOOR LOCKS WHICH IS A SAFETY CONCERN, THE POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS HAVE REPEATEDLY FAILED ON MY VEHICLE. EACH OF THE FOUR DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND SEVERAL MULTIPLE TIMES. THE MOST RECENT WAS A DRIVERS (LEFT) SIDE REAR WHICH WAS REPLACED IN MARCH 2014 AND FAILED AGAIN. THIS MAKES THE 6TH OR 7TH TIME AN ACTUATOR HAS FAILED ON MY VEHICLE. THE COST TO REPLACE THESE IS APPROXIMATELY $600. HOWEVER MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS THAT THE VEHICLE IS UNLOCKED WHEN I BELIEVE IT IS LOCKED. THIS IS A WORRY BOTH WHEN TRANSPORTING YOUNG CHILDREN (WHO CAN OPEN THE DOOR AS CHILD SAFETY LOCKS ARE INOPERATIVE) AND POTENTIAL UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR THEFT OF THE VEHICLE. I OPENED A CASE WITH TOYOTA #1701210527. TOYOTA REFUSE TO CONTINUE TO ASSIST WITH THIS OR DETERMINE WHY MY VEHICLE REPEATEDLY HAS DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS FAIL.
