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

2004 Toyota 4 RUNNER Electrical System problems & defects.

Toyota 4 RUNNER Electrical System problems : 1.

After Picking My Car Up From The Dealership From An Oil Change Last October, My Vehicle Stabilty Control (vsc) System Zeroed The Calibrations In Effect Shutting This System Down. As A Result, The Car Went Into A Sideways Skid And Nearly Rolled. I Had To Have The Car Towed Back To The Dealership Who Recalibrated The System And Accused My Of Inducing The Skid And Informed Me The System If Suppose To Turn Off If A Tire Starts To Spin Faster Than Another. In May, After Picking The Car Up From Another Oil Change At The Dealership, The Vsc System Again Zeroed The Calibration While Being Driven From The Service Bay To The Front. This Time For Know Known Reason. The Dealership And toyota Technical Support Have Told Me To Take The Car, Drive It And “see What Happens”. This Seems To Be Occurring On A 13,000 Mile Frequency And When The System Does Turn Off, The Car Is Not Safe To Drive. My Car Has Been At The Dealership For 9 Days Now.
