Sienna 2010 cannot move

Asked by Jul 19, 2016 at 07:53 PM about the 2010 Toyota Sienna LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sienna 2010 has 66k miles, never has a problem
until late two days ago on Highway. We first heard
a little bit noise, then check engine, VSC, and Trac
off lights were on. We pulled over and turned off
engine. No problem to restart, but all three lights
were still on, cannot move. Towed there car
backed home to a dealership.

They dealer service called two days later, claiming
front brakes are in metal to metal status, battery is
really low, but they worst thing is they claimed they
transmission needs to be replaced with an
estimated cost of more than 4k bucks.

The warranty has expired. Can anybody help to
decide what I need to do? I know nothing about
mechanics. They car has always functioned well,
never has any symptoms before this.

1 Answer

Followed up: the battery was replaced last year, so i asked the service person to have the brakes replaced so that I can drive the car for a second opinion. But I was told that since the car cannot move, the transmission must be replaced first. Is this true?
