Asked by Aug 21, 2014 at 11:10 AM about the 2009 Toyota Sienna LE 8 Passenger

After having A Toyota tech come to my house to check it out, it is still not repaired. Toyota is aware of the problem. It occurs frequently after 100,000 miles on the 2GR FE engine. Toyota refuses to offer any assistance in warranty coverage and no recall is on the horizon. Toyota has a service bulletin for Toyota technicians, which involves throwing parts at it at the customer's expense. Parts include sensors and camshaft solenoids.

The total job which also can include timing chain, water pump, hoses, etc. will run around $6000.00. I am still trying to find another shop to perform the work, using parts I can purchase from aftermarket sellers. I have become very disenchanted at Toyota's callous attitude in dealing with a known manufacturer defect. I will never again buy or recommend Toyota vehicles. I
