ECM Died at 105M
By saddened customer on
Vehicle2002 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI originally posted at Edmunds how I loved, loved, LOVED my Rav4 at time of purchase back in 2002. However, car started jerking last week, couldn't accelerate, so towed it to dealer, went online, and discovered the brain/transmission problem! Paid over $1300 to replace the brain, and have no faith in my car anymore. Dealer couldn't guarantee it won't start lurching again, so it's time to switch from Toyota, sadly. A company that doesn't stand behind a problem that it knows exists at least when I trade it in, I can show I paid to 'fix' the ECM, but I pray the car just gets retired rather than potentially hurting another soul!
Best FeaturesNone right now.
Worst FeaturesToyota sent out a service notice to dealers back in 2006 about this issue and didn't notify customers. Sad! I am here to warn all of you to 1) not drive if the car starts lurching (I was able to save the transmission) and 2) be prepared for the ECM problem.
