In January Of 2013, I Took My highlander Into A Dealer’s Service Department To Diagnose A Problem With My Driver’s Side Front Automatic Lock, Which Had Completely Stopped Working At Around 46,000 Miles. This Means I Had To Physically Press The Lock As Not Even The Key Would Work. I Had To Open The Passenger Side Door, Crawl Across The Seat, & Unlock The Driver’s Side Door In Order To Get In My Car. I Was Told By The Dealer That The Problem Was The Door Lock Actuator, Which Went Out, & It Was No Longer Under Warranty. Rather Than Paying $575 At The Dealer, I Found A Mechanic That Ordered The Part & Replaced The Actuator For Less Than $400. Less Than Three Months Later, At Just Over 50,000 Miles & Only 2.5 Years Of Owning The Car, The Front Passenger Side Actuator Went Out. Needless To Say, I Had Some Words With The Dealer, & They Agreed To Do A One-time “courtesy” Fix, Replacing It At No Cost. Over The Next Few Months, Both Of The Rear Door Actuators Went Out. Not Wanting To Spend $800+ To Replace The Actuators, I Decided To Live With Risk & Annoyance This Caused, Hoping There’d Soon Be A Recall. Well, Here We Are In March 2015, & At 87,000 Miles, Guess What? The Front Driver’s Side Actuator Is Going Out Again. Searching The Web For This Issue, I Found Hundreds Of Similar Complaints From Other toyota Owners, Over A Variety Of Models & Years. This Is A Huge Safety Issue & toyota Needs To Recall All Affected Vehicles. I Can Come Up With At Least A Dozen Scenarios Where This Issue Could Cause Serious Harm To The Car’s Occupants. If I Can’t Get To My Child In The Back Seat Because I’ve Been In A Wreck & Door Is Locked; If I Am Car-jacked B/c The Door Wouldn’t Lock; If I Have To Enter Through The Passenger’s Side To Unlock My Door And X/y/z Happens… I’ve Already Locked Myself Out Due To This Issue (car Thinks Doors Are Unlocked & Won’t Warn Me My Keys Are Inside)! Help!
