TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Apr 17, 2006.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT . on april 17th at 5:45 am while driving on i-465, i felt a loss of steering in the wheel. i did nothing to the wheel, as one would normally do when driving on ice. i was driving in the middle lane, the vehicle crashed into the highway divider and then careened off the road. a carmel police officer came to the scene and an accident report was entered. front ball joint(s) failed and front wheel folded under vehicle; this resulted in the loss of steering and crash on interstate highway. the vehicle hit the concrete highway divider and then bounced across the interstate and off the road. when the vehicle was examined at the repair facility it was suggested that the cause of the accident was the failure of the ball joint. it appears that the lower ball joint(s) were not replaced. the old assembly(s) do not appear to have been touched. there is a consistent pattern of rust on the assembly(s) and nuts that have not been disturbed. i spoke with a toyota representative and was told that my vehicle id was a part of the recall ssc 50j or nhtsa campaign id number: 05v225000. i was also told that the work had been completed at obrien toyota on september 9th 2005. the ssc 50j completion label was not applied to the vehicle. i called the dealership the first part of may and spoke with the service manager, dan johnson, who assured me that the part had been replaced on both front suspensions. he stated that this service was performed by joe, who was one of his best mechanics. my complaint is either that the recalled part was not replaced or that the replacement part does not work. *jb .Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 51665 miles.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2010.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM . 1) stopped at stop sign with snow on the ground. then accelerate turning onto another road. 2) vehicle can accelerate and move a few feet before the trac (traction control) system activates. the power to the engine is then cut off. at this point you are unable to move, stuck in the middle of an intersection. there is a few second delay before you can get any power back to the engine. ultimately, you are left in the middle of the intersection with no power to the wheels waiting to see if another vehicle is going to t-bone you. i have had multiple, very close calls. failure occurs every single time you try to accelerate from a stop and the system senses even a tiny loss of traction. the complete loss of accelerator function and delay until the return of power is very dangerous. 3) there is no fix. i was told there is no way to disable the trac system that is supposed to be a safety feature when in reality it is an extremely dangerous system. toyota must think a little wheel spin is more dangerous than completely taking away the driver's ability to control their own vehicle i have driven vehicles that have trac and it does not function like it does on this particular vehicle. the system is severely overly sensitive and overly controlling. *tr.Mileage was 1 miles.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 19, 2011.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TIRES . re: goodyear dunlop grand trek tg35 p265/70r16 tire. on august 19, 2011, i was driving on i-10 in fl at approximately 65 miles per hour. the car suddenly got very bumpy and in a matter of seconds, the rear right tire exploded on my toyota 4runner. i lost control of the vehicle but managed to finally pull off to the side of the interstate. after examining the damages to my vehicle, i noticed that the tread on the right rear tire completely separated all the way around the tire. luckily, the car did not flip or collide with another vehicle. i sustained psychological and emotional injuries and over $2000 worth of damages to my car as a result of the blowout. my car only has 36k miles on it and is always kept in the garage. the tread on all 4 tires is practically brand new as it is driven seldomly, with regular tire rotation/balance/maintenance. there should not be any reason for a tire with this little wear and tear to explode the way it did. i have done a lot of research and realize that this could have had a far worse outcome, and that the tires are indeed defective. in addition, my insurance company will not cover the expenses of the tires. now i am forced to replace all 4 tires out of pocket for fear of the same scenario and not as lucky of an outcome if this happens again. in my research, i also saw that nhtsa has opened an investigation into possible tread separation problems involving dunlop tires sold as standard equipment on 1995-1999 nissan pathfinder suvs. nhtsa says it has received six reports of injuries in two rollover crashes that were blamed on tread separations on the grandtrek tg35 tire. i feel that unless i sustained life-long injuries, paralysis, or death would the tire manufacturer come forward with any goodwill or compensation. *tr.Mileage was 36000 miles.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002 car safety problem was reported on July 15, 2013.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . vibration from braking causing very decreased vehicle control posing very increased accident risk. toyota four runner 02 limited, recurrence of pulsing brake pedal and very high vehicle vibration when braking. this occurs after short or long mountain descents at normal / posted highway speeds under normal passenger loads (not hauling), clear dry conditions. this is the second time this low mileage vehicle has experience this issue. first time, the front rotors were replaced at the dealer by the previous owners expense under 60k miles. the vehicle is driven at most 7k miles a year. the problem has returned over and over and poses a serious hazard to occupants and other highway travelers. searching the web, there are numerous complaints of warped rotors which toyota dealers are saying is driver error / normal use. i have not driven this vehicle much and not hard. my use would qualify as normal highway travel. the vehicle was purchased by me in 2008 and i have replaced rotors every year. i have purchased the slotted rotors with ceramic as well as semi metallic with no benefit . certainly the expense of again replacing rotors is concerning, but really, the amount of vibration and decreased control causes me to be very concerned for my, and others, safety. even if the rotors are replaced, it seems very likely that the vibration and loss of control will return in a few thousand miles of normal use. i would like toyota to admit their vehicles have faulty assembly which causes excessive wear on pads and rotors. i now just took it in again, and this will be the 4th set of rotors, pads and rear drums! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 170000 miles.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002 car safety problem was reported on Sept 05, 2014.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2002, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . my 2002 4runner was purchased brand new from toyota in november of 2001. i live in new york so it does snow 2 or 3 months out of the year. it has been used as a second vehicle to pick up supplies and the like, otherwise it is rarely used. at this time it has approx. 139000 miles. the truck would not start and i took it to a mechanic. i was told there is an extreme amount of rust under the vehicle, the undercarriage, the frame, the gas tank, etc. the problem is the fuel pump but because of so much rust, removing the gas tank to change the fuel pump may cause damage to the components connectiong the tank to the frame of the vehicle. it is a shame that toyota sells a vehicle that may need to be junked due to the amount of rust it has. i understand that many other owners have the same problem with the 4runner and something should be done. i bought a 1999 camry brand new prior to the 4runner and i had it for 12 years before giving it to a friend who still drives it to this day and it has no rust. the 4runner runs great all of the years i have owned it but i am being told by my mechanic that it is possible the body of my truck could fall from the frame. at 139000 miles this should not be happening. toyota should offer some kind of repair to these issues. my truck looks almost brand new except for some rust on the front and rear bumpers and now i may have to junk it. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 139000 miles.
