"TAKATA RECALL" THIS IS OUR FIRST TOYOTA PURCHASE AND WE ARE EXTREMELY LET DOWN WITH THE FACT THAT IT IS LOSING AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF OIL. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. IN THE EVENT THAT THE ENGINE MAY CEASE IF IT RUNS OUT OF OIL. WE PREVIOUSLY HAVE ONLY HAD AMERICAN VEHICLES, AND WERE TOLD THAT TOYOTA IS A MUCH BETTER PRODUCT.. WELL AS OF THIS PAST APRIL, WE HAD THIS BRIEF LIGHT GO ON. IT DOESN'T STAY ON VERY LONG AND ONLY APPEARS WHEN YOU TURN A CURVE. THEN THE "OIL MAINTENANCE DUE" LIGHT APPEARED. THAT'S ODD, BECAUSE I JUST HAD MY OIL CHANGE DONE 2 MONTHS AGO! I WENT TO A LOCAL OIL SERVICE STATION IMMEDIATELY AND FOUND OUT I WAS DOWN TO ONLY ONE QUART OF OIL IN MY ENGINE. I'VE NEVER HAD THIS HAPPEN BEFORE! THEY LOOKED FOR A LEAK AND DIDN'T FIND ONE. THEY TOPPED OFF THE OIL AND I WAS FREE TO GO. WELL, THE SAME SCENARIO HAPPENED AGAIN IN JULY, ONLY 3 MONTHS AFTER THE LAST TOP OFF. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE DEALER TO HAVE HIM LOOK IT OVER. THEY SAID IT NEEDED A SYSTEM ENGINE CLEANING, THERE WERE NO LEAKS, THEY GAVE IT AN OIL CHANGE, AND THE SPARK PLUGS LOOKED FINE.. $300 FOR THIS TO BE DONE. THEN THEY TOLD ME TO BRING IT BACK IN 1900 MILES... WELL THIS SEEMED TO WORK... UNTIL... NOW.. IN OCTOBER/NOVEMBER (2-3 MOS LATER) THE SAME ISSUE HAPPENED, AND NOW THEY ARE TELLING ME I NEED A NEW ENGINE THAT WILL COST ANYWHERE FROM $3000 TO $5800. I HAVE ONLY HAD THIS CAR GOING ON 5 YEARS. I HAVE NEVER HAD TO REPLACE AN ENGINE ON ANY CAR BEFORE.. WHERE IS THE TOYOTA QUALITY WE WERE TOLD TOYOTA STANDS BEHIND???
