If you weren't a Site Moderator, I'd vehemently opine that you're completely making this up. Care to elaborate?


He's making it up.

Some positive news for those of us in WA or outside of California. I got an email from Kevin Spillane of Toyota that reads:

"Good afternoon Mr. _______,

Thank you so much for reaching out to me regarding your RAV4 EV and the F0I recall completion. I am working with our internal and Portland Field engineers to coordinate a time frame we may complete this for you.

If I could ask you to let me know what would be your preferred Toyota Dealer to utilize, to perform this update and one alternative dealer.

Either myself or the dealer will be in contact with you, once we have some dates available.

Again, thank you for your time.

Regards,

Kevin"

It's been over 2 weeks since I've seen that email from Kevin...still waiting. Hopefully you'll have better luck

It would make sense that he'd wait and try to coordinate as many updates in one trip as he could.

Except that I organized 3 EV's total in my area for the appointment

Less than 24 hours later, I got a follow up from Kevin saying my appointment is set for November 11th at Toyota of Kirkland (WA) and asked me to confirm that day was OK... which of course I did.

Thank you for the response and you are more than welcome! I am certainly pleased to hear of your positive Rav4 EV experience!

We have coordinated a visit by a Portland Regional Factory Engineer to Toyota of Kirkland to complete the recall for your vehicle on November 11th. We would ask for you to drop the vehicle off there the night of the 10th or first thing in the morning of the 11th and it will be completed by the end of the day. They would ask to keep the vehicle overnight to the 12th, only if additional testing is necessary. We will have the dealer contact you as to when the vehicle is ready to be picked up and of course if it is necessary to keep it overnight.

As for the wiper arm recall, this is in an interim status and Toyota is preparing the necessary parts. You will be notified when the remedy is available and of course it could be completed, if in fact the remedy is launched before this date. It will require a separate visit if it is not available by that date. Fortunately, to my knowledge, this recall will be able to be performed by any Toyota dealer, as it is not a RAV4 EV specific component.

Please let me know if this date works for you.

Appreciate your time,

Kevin

Good to hear. Apparently I learned from Kevin that these regional techs are scheduled about a month in advance.

I spoke with Kevin a couple weeks ago and tomorrow is my appointment here in NY. I just dropped my car off at the dealer.

I spoke to my Toyota dealer in Austria two weeks ago. He told me that the special hardware needed (I think its the cable) is on the way to a german RAV4ev an after the german I will get my update.
I will tell you.
kind regards from Austria!

Hi all,

Took my Rav4 EV to Longo Toyota on Saturday and got the recall done. Ask to have the tech checkout the hum from EV Motor. Well just got a call from Longo this morning and looks like they have a Traction Motor on order for me. Does anyone have experience with time it takes to replace the motor?


Thanks,

Chan
