TOYOTA RAV4 2002 car safety problem was reported on .TOYOTA RAV4 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VISIBILITY:GLASS, SIDE/REAR . by accident, i put my driver's side rear window approx. 1/2 way down . unknowingly, i left the window down. when i reached an approximate speed of 40miles per hour, a very severe noise and vibration occurred. it was so severe, i pulled over to check the vehicle. i thought a tire had blown. the vibration and noise is very intense. once the window is up, the noise and vibration stops. if a combination front/rear window down happens, it is not as noticable. i called toyota, and they said it was a design flaw. flaw or no, it is horrible. it could be tragic if a driver unaware pulls over quickly because they fear a tire is going to blow.at the minimum, i feel toyota should send owners a letter describing the problem s they will not be alarmed. i will not put my rear windows down, and that in itself is sad to spend 23 thousand dollars on a new vehicle and be limited in that respect. thanks for your attention to this matter. linda jones. *ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTEGH20V120.

TOYOTA RAV4 2002 car safety problem was reported on Oct 24, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i was driving my 2002 toyota rav4 down the interstate when the check engine light came on at the same time that the rpm's of the vehicle began escalating far beyond where they normally would. after testing the vehicle at different speeds, i determined that the car would not shift from fourth to fifth gear. took it to my local mechanic, who determined that there is nothing wrong with my transmission. what's wrong is that the electronic control module (ecm) that controls the transmission had failed. he contacted a local toyota dealer to see if he could source the part and discovered that it was a known failure and we needed to take the car to the dealership. we did so, where we were told because we purchased the car new in may of 2002 (ten years, five months ago) that they were refusing to repair the car's ecm as it fell outside of their 'adjusted' warranty period. i contacted toyota's corporate customer assistance, where i was told that yes, toyota knows that the part is going to fail. they extended the warranty to cover more of the cars that would be affected. however, since i purchased my car five months longer than their arbitrary ten year coverage period regardless of the fact that the mileage of the car falls far below the listed coverage that they are not going to do anything to repair my vehicle. not only that, but the dealership quoted $1400 for the ecm repair and another$4800 for the transmission - saying that the transmission had to be replaced, even though they hadn't inspected it (i asked!!) and i had already had an independent mechanic check it out and said that it was fine. i do not understand how it is okay for toyota to sell millions of people cars with known safety defects and say that they are not responsible for the repair - knowing that if the repair isn't made, that people will be killed driving these cars. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 125000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2002 car safety problem was reported on June 24, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2002, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . while driving on hwy i85 at 70mph my toyota rav4 suddenly locked up and caused vehicle to skid off the road. thankfully, no one was injured, but car was towed to mechanic and estimated that the transmission transfer case may be cause...since then i have learned that toyota had a recall on their ecm for rav 4 cars 2001-2003 that resulted in transmission shifting problems yet i was never notified because my vin number was n/a indicating that my car would not experience any of the transmission shifting problems commonly associated with this recall. unfortunately, the transmission shifting and lock-up problems that i am having is directly related to the computer faulty design of toyota's ecm and yet they are not taking any moral or financial responsibility for my repairs. i'm filing this complaint because there has to be other toyota owners that were not informed about the ecm recall such as myself that also like me, could be driving along the road in a well maintained car and suddenly skid out of control perhaps next time causing a fatality that could be avoided! proper notification regardless of vin numbers so consumers can have cars inspected specifically for recall issues would have been the right thing to do and potentially offset the car repair issues i currently face. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 119765 miles.

(this occurred early on a sunday morning so traffic was light.) i was barely able to drive the car up my driveway - shifting continued to be a problem so that the car stalled and did not respond to the accelerator. toyota has a document that describes the problem. however i cannot access any assistance from toyota because the car has been in service greater than 10 years. the experience was very frightening. the failure is episodic and unpredictable. i feel toyota should replace the ecm in any car that fails in this manner. there are technical service reports on the website. the warranty is limited to 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever occurs first. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 61135 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 07, 2004.TOYOTA RAV4 2002, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with POWER TRAIN . re: 2002 rav4 suv transmission ecm/atm repairs. dear sir: i am sending you this letter to explain what my situation is. i just found out that toyota motor sales usa is having a recall on 2001, 2002 and 2003 toyota rav4 suv’s for transmission problems. i have tried for years to get toyota to fix my transmission. however, toyota has totally ignored me. i had to pay for a used transmission out of my pocket because toyota told me that they do not manufacture any defective automobiles. i just sent the below letter to the toyota motor sales usa asking that they reimburse me for the cost of the bad transmission and the labor costs and i received a letter this week stating that they are not going to do anything about reimbursing me anything. they are totally ignoring their own recall notice at my expense. when i first purchased my 2002 rav4 new from the bert wolfe toyota dealership in charleston, west virginia, i have had nothing but trouble with the rav4. the first month that i owned the rav4 suv i almost wrecked because the drive belt was chewed up and of course this affected my steering capability and i almost went over an embankment. ever since i purchased my 2002 rav4 suv i have felt that there were several things wrong with the new 2002 rav4 because sometimes when i would try to speed up or to attempt to get on an interstate my transmission would not shift. if it would shift then it would make a grinding noise and make my rav4 suv. shake. a lot of times, i would have to just pull off of the road because i could not go anywhere and if i had not gotten off the road then i would have caused a wreck or maybe killed someone. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 37000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTEHH20V720. Toyota Rav4 2002 problem was reported in ELKVIEW, WV. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
