There Is An Awful Rotten Egg Sulfur Smell Being Emitted From My 2005 toyota 4 Runner When Driving With Back Window Open. After Doing Much Research, I See There Have Been Many Tsb’s Issued For 4 Runners Dating Back To 2003 And Up To The 2006 Models. I Brought My Car Into The Dealer, But They Tell Me My engine Is Not Covered Under The Tsb’s Issued. I Feel This Is A Problem That Should Be Covered. *jb

On Sunday, July 25, 2004, I Was Pulling From A Driveway To A Tar Road And When Applying My Brakes The Vehicle Did Not Slow Down And Made A Very Loud Ticking Noise In The Rear Of The Car. I Assumed It Was My Abs System Making The Noise. I Was Not Going More Than 2 Miles An Hour And Was Able To Just Accelerate And Go On My Way. I Used The Brakes In My Vehicle At Least 5-10 Times On My Way Home. I Pulled In My Driveway And Parked My Vehicle. Approximately 6 Hours Later, My Husband Got Into The Vehicle To Move It In The Driveway About 10 Yards Forward. I Was In The House. In The House I Heard That Very Same Ticking Noise And Then A Loud Noise And I Knew That My Husband Had Crashed My Car. The Brake Pedal Went Right To The Floor And The Car Smashed Thru Our Garage. I Got Into The Vehicle And Pressed The Brake Pedal And It Again Went Right To The Floor. I Called My toyota Dealership The Next Morning And They Agreed To Come Pick It Up. Before The Car Left The Yard My Father In -law Came Over And Watched The Brake Pedal Go To The Floor. toyota Can Find Nothing Wrong With My Vehicle And Want Me To Take It Back And Drive It. I Will Not Drive That Vehicle Unless They Can Tell Me What Happened. I Have 4 Other Witnesses Who Heard The Ticking Noise In The Car Before It Hit Our Garage. There Is Something Wrong And I Need Some Help. I Have Asked toyotaa For Another Vehicle And They Refuse. My Car Has 4000 Miles On It. I Believe It Is Unsafe And Could Pose Danger To Other Owners.*ak

This Is An E-mail I Sent toyota Headquarters: I Have Had My New 2004 4runner Limited Back To The Dealership (ron Carter, Alvin, Tx.) 4 Times Before I Even Had 500 Miles On The Vehicle. The Reason Is Because Of Steering Wheel Oscillation/vehicle Vibrations Between 55 And 70 Mph. The Dealership Re-balanced The Wheels And Tires That Came With The Vehicle (dunlap Grandtrek At20) Twice Without Any Luck. I Then Had Them Upgrade The Tires (for And Additional $420) To Michelin Tires. This Didn’t Solve The Problem Either. I Then Brought Vehicle Back In One More Time The Following Monday For Another Attempt To Fix The Problem. No Luck Again. All Of This Took Place Within 7 Days Of Me Taking Ownership Of The Vehicle. Every Time I Took It In For This Investigation, The Service Department Told Me That The Problem Was Fixed (all 4 Times). It Was Not Fixed! I Had The Technician Who Balanced The Tires (his Name Was Tracy) Drive The Vehicle And He Too Noticed The Steering Wheel Oscillation/shimmy. One Of The Service Advisors (her Name Was Kim) Also Drove The Vehicle After A Different Attempt To Solve The Problem And Noticed The Same Concern. 9/8/04 I’m Still Waiting On The toyota Regional Office To Contact Me Back Like They Promised To Get This Problem Resolved. I Really Like This Vehicle And Would Like To Get This Problem Fixed. I’m Not Sure What To Do Next (lemon Law?). I Am Writing toyota To See What Else Can Be Done To Solve This Issue That The Dealership Could Not. Fyi – The More I Drive The Vehicle In This Condition, The More Damage It’s Doing To My “new” Tires As Well As Premature Wear To The Steering/suspension Components. Fyi-still Waiting For Them To Contact Me Back For Resolution.*ak
