TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2012 Fuel System, Gasoline Report #10513483

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2012 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2012.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2012, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . THIS VEHICLE DOES NOT GET ANYTHING CLOSE TO THE 22MPG HIGHWAY MILES PER GALLON AS POSTED ON THE WINDOW STICKER. THE DEALERSHIP TELLS ME THAT THE COMPUTER IS FAULTY AND DOES NOT CALCULATE THE MILEAGE PROPERLY AND THAT IS THE WAY THEY ALL ARE. BUT, I HAVE ALL THE RECEIPTS FOR EVERY TANK OF GAS PURCHASED SINCE NEW. THIS VEHICLE HAS ONLY BEEN GETTING 17.8 MILES TO THE GALLON ON THE HIGHWAY ON AVERAGE. I'VE COMPLAINED TO THE DEALERSHIP TWICE BUT GET THE SAME ANSWER. I CAN'T DEPEND ON THE ON-BOARD COMPUTER READ OUT AS TO THE FUEL MILEAGE, THEY TELL ME - "IT IS INACCURATE". YET, WHEN A FULL 20.5 GALLONS OF GAS ARE FILLED INTO THE TANK, THE COMPUTER CALCULATES 360 MILES TIL EMPTY. AND AFTER 310 MILES, THE FUEL WARING LIGHT COMES ON. I DON'T BELIEVE THE DEALERSHIP AS I HAVE THE RECEIPTS TO PROVE THAT THE COMPUTER IS ACCURATE. THE MPG ARE JUST EXTREMELY EXAGGERATED. I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE KNOWING THAT THE FUEL CONSUMPTION WAS GOING TO BE OFF BY NEARLY 20% . ALSO THE STEERING WHEEL CONTINUES TO SPLIT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WHEEL. I WILL GO BACK TO HAVE A SECOND WHEEL REPLACED FOR MY NEXT SERVICE, IN A FEW WEEKS. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 1000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTEBU5JRXC5. Toyota 4runner 2012 problem was reported in DRIPPING SPRINGS, TX. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

TOYOTA 4RUNNER Air Bags

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2012 Air Bags Report #10619067

TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2012 car safety problem was reported on July 12, 2014.TOYOTA 4RUNNER 2012, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with AIR BAGS . I WAS FIRST ONE WAITING AT THE LIGHT, TRAVELING EASTBOUND ON BUTLER/AIRPORT RD. WHEN THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN, I PROCEEDED THROUGH THE INTERSECTION. WHEN I WAS ABOUT HALFWAY TO THREE-QUARTERS THROUGH THE INTERSECTION, I NOTICED A MINI COOPER APPROACHING RAPIDLY, HEADING NORTHBOUND ON SHUTE RD. I KNEW SHE WAS GOING TO HIT ME, SO I ATTEMPTED TO SWERVE LEFT TO AVOID A HIGH IMPACT COLLISION. I DIDN┬┐┐T HEAR HER BRAKES UNTIL THE POINT OF IMPACT, SHE T-BONED MY 4RUNNER HITTING ME IN THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE NEAR THE WHEEL WELL. MY 4RUNNER THAN TIPPED AND ROLLED UPSIDE DOWN. I WAITED UNTIL THE 4RUNNER STOPPED MOVING, UNBUCKLED THE SEAT BELT AND FLIPPED OVER TO THE GROUND (NOW THE ROOF OF THE VEHICLE). I LOOKED AT THE WINDOW AND ATTEMPTED TO PULL/PUSH THE SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAG OUT OF THE WAY, I EVEN TRIED KICKING IT A FEW TIMES, BUT IT WAS STILL INFLATED AND WOULDN┬┐┐T BUDGE. I REMEMBERED THAT I KEPT A POCKETKNIFE IN THE CENTER CONSOLE. I LOOKED FOR IT, AND SAW IT ON THE GROUND. I GOT THE NAIL FILE SECTION OPEN, BUT THAT DIDN┬┐┐T DO ANYTHING TO THE AIRBAG. I THEN HEARD SOMEONE OUTSIDE THE VEHICLE SHOUT ┬┐┐HELP IS ON THE WAY, THEY┬┐┐LL GET YOU OUT┬┐Ł. I ASKED HER IF SHE COULD HELP ME CUT THE AIRBAG, AND HANDED HER THE KNIFE THROUGH THE GAP BETWEEN THE AIRBAG AND THE CAR FRAME. SHE TRIED TO CUT THE CORD THAT CONNECTED THE AIRBAG TO THE CAR BUT THAT DIDN┬┐┐T WORK, SO I TOLD HER JUST TO SLIT THE BAG ITSELF. SHE WAS ABLE TO DO THAT, AND HELPED ME GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE. I TOOK PICTURES OF THE VEHICLE OVERTURNED A FEW MINUTES LATER, AND THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG WAS STILL INFLATED. I CAN PROVIDE THIS PICTURE UPON REQUEST. THE VEHICLE WAS TOTALED, AND IS NOW PROPERTY OF STATE FARM, CLAIM #37492D121. MY CONCERN IS THAT IF THERE WAS A VEHICLE FIRE AND I DID NOT HAVE A POCKET KNIFE, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO EXIT THE VEHICLE..Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 16400 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTEBU5JR4C5. Toyota 4runner 2012 problem was reported in HILLSBORO, OR. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
