At 68K engine started missing and running rough. Took van to dealership & was told it was "bad NY gas" that clogged up the fuel injectors so we needed new ones. Took van to independent garage and they showed us a Toyota TSB concerning a design problem with the injectors and they had to be replaced. These were "special" injectors fromToyota that retailed for $150 each and we needed 6.
Rear window wiper not large enough.bucket front seat uncomfortable.
Flawless performer for almost 94K now. Only one minor glitch with the tire pressure warning light that the dealer could not remedy. The reminder light isn't an active warning system; I don'teven miss it. Wonderful, smooth engine & drive train. Rugged interior (grey cloth) that has worn well with soccer players, two large dogs, antiques, lawn mower, etc. Wish we had gotten the LE's alloy wheels, though.
Engine - climate control - flexibleseating - deeply tinted glass keepstemps down and privacy high.
Larger wheels/tires and a little bitstiffer suspension.
We have broken three passanger
handles. We cannot get the vehicle to
align we tried 3 times. We have been
thru 3 sets of tires and three brake
jobs. None of the above are covered by
the extended warranty. (Never buy an
extended warranty from Toyota) All
work was done by dealer with exception
of the last brake job was done by a
shop that carries a lifetime warranty.
When I get out of the vehicle.
I dont see how they could improve a
vehicle with so many problems. I only
bought Toyota's until now.
Good-comfortable ride, reliable,
engine fairly quiet. Bad-front-end
won't aligned-constant pull to
the right; 4 sets of tires
in 120,000 miles-can't locate or fix
the problem; replacing the rear lights
rear door panel costs $65 at the
dealership-you cannot do it; paint
peeling off door handles; poorly
designed sliding door handles/buttons
fail to open or stuck open where the
door could be closed-cost $175 per
handle; dashboard lights that
highlight the AC/Heater dial are
shorting (sometimes they re-light with
a tap on the dash-most the time not).
