Thanks for using Just Answer for your needs. Do you remember the code that the Dealer pulled from the computer? Maybe on the reciept?
first time when i went he said some history codes has to be reset because car was on lot for sometimes some bad gas might have to replaced , second time when i went he said oxygen sensor on bank 1 has to be replaced since it was malfunctionning
Was it a possible P0138 code?
sorry not sure about any codes , but i can check recipt very quickly
recept is in car
can you pls for 2 min?
i mean for hold for 2 min , i can get it from car
here;s describtion on paper --------------------------- P0138 O2 senson bank 1 sensor 2 high voltage . inspected readings on O2 sensor and had almost no movement . performed A/F control and found A/F sensor OP Normal and O2 sensor almost no reaction. necessary to replace A/F sensor.
REPLACED A/F Sensor on bank 1 sensor , cleared codes and recheked . labor OP 801013
thats the whole description on the paper
Hope this is useful :)
Are you there?
Yes, thats what I thought.
There is a bulletin on this condition but its not yet listed for the 2011 Rav4. It was made because the code and condition is decieving. The code given is for the O2 sensor but the fix is to replace the A/F sensor. Dont worry if you dont understand this jargon. The bulletin # XXXXX XXXXX
how can i get information about this bulletin
is there any link ?
What they need to do is recheck this check engine light for you and when they fix it submit a DPR (Dealer Product Report) and this will let Toyota know about the issue.
Let me look....
sure thanks for looking , and they have actually fixed above said problem but after driving sometime afain check engine light has come , so you think its stillsame issue or could be possibly other issue.
I'm sorry but I cant find a copy but the Dealer shop be able to just print you out a copy.
is this consisdered minor problem or major problem as per your experience
and worried if this car is reliable for long run
Minor. It is a issue of some poorly made A/F sensors and they are correcting them through this bulletin and letting Dealer Techs know about it.
Please reply back if needed,

and i went back again because problem didnt got fixed , now they say they have to replace whole ECM, because there is some malfunctioning internally in the ECM , they havent provided me any fix , iam waiting for them to fix .
and please advice me what is the best thing to do in these situation ,
i lost credibility in this car , and my intention is get replace this with another new car or get complete refund .
and iam not sure how to work on these kind of things , should i have to work with toyota directly or negotiate with dealers
i already spoke with dealership , it seems they have no intention to replace car and are not responding properly to me.
i heard about lemon law and buyback situation, can i show my intention of intiating lemon law with toyota , is that a safe thing to do ?
please advise how can i negotiate with toyota regarding buyback situation
