Toyota SCION TC Electrical System problems : 5.
I Was Parked On A Corner And Heard A Loud Pop. I Was Scared And Automatically Thought Something Fell On The Top Of My Car. I Saw Glass Falling In The Car And Outside The Car. I Got Out To Look At It And Nothing Was On Or Near The Car Showing That Something Fell On It. The Wind Deflector Malfunctioned Causing It To Pop Up, While The Sunroof Was Closed, And Breaking The Side Hinges For The Sunroof, And Shattering The Sunroof Glass. Being That I Was Not Home At The Time, I Drove To My Residence And Glass Was Flying In And Off The Car From The Sunroof Through The Visor. This Is The First Time This Has Happened With My Car But Not The First Incident With scion Tc. I Did A Little Research Online To See If There Was A Recall On This Part, But Found That I Was Not The Only scion Tc Owner Who Has Had This Problem. I Called Scion About It, And They Told Me That They Could Not Fix It If It Was Not Under Warranty And This Would Have To Be Paid For Out Of Pocket. I Would Have To Take It To A Dealership Or My Insurance Company And Pay An Estimated $932.41. Problem Is, Insurance Does Not Cover Company Malfunctions. This Is Unacceptable. I Should Not Have To Pay For A Companies Recurring Mechanical Errors. This Is Unsafe And A Recall Needs To Be Made On This As Soon As Possible. I Could’ve Been Hurt, Splinters From The Glass Could Have Gotten In My Eyes. Something Needs To Be Done About This. *tr

On My Way Home From Driving My Parents To The Airport On May 18th, 2010 At Approximately 4:00pm My Check Engine And Low Tire Pressure Light Came On. I Returned Home And Was There For A Few Hours. Around 7:00pm I Went Out To Dinner With A Friend. I Returned Back Home Shortly After 10:00pm. At Approximately 1:10am On May 19th, 2010 I Heard The Sound Of What I Thought Was Fire Crackers From The Front Of My Home. I Went Outside To Investigate The Noise And To My Complete Shock My Entire Vehicle Was In Flames. I Immediately Called 911. The Fire Department Put Out The Fire And Said They Believed It Was electrical. I Called The Fire Investigator That Same Day And Left A Message For Him To Come Back Out. On May 20th, 2010 Around 9am Michael Burkhart From Cape Coral Fire, Rescue & Emergency Management Services Came To My Home To Investigate The Fire. He Determined That It Was Caused Around The Wire Housing Towards The Back Of The Engine As He Pointed Out Where The Most Heat Was Located. Also The Wiring That Goes To The Housing In The Engine Was Completely Burned To The Metal Unlike The Wiring Inside The Passenger Compartment Which Still Had Some Plastic Coating Over It. The Report Number Is [xxx] For The City Of Cape Coral Fire Department. Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr
