Thanks for posting those docs. Those all said by the end of April a letter would be going out. So much for that. What I thought most interesting according to one of those five documents is that there are 6 unsold Rav4s - four at one dealer. They can't be sold - they have to be fixed first. The VINs are listed - all 3000 range 2014s. If you can crack the dealer code number system, you'll know where they are waiting.

It's easy enough to Google the dealer code numbers (hint - they're all here):

04308: Wondries Toyota
04389: Hanlees Toyota
09107: Toyota of Hollywood

That last one makes less sense than it might seem, since that's Toyota of Hollywood, FL. I suspect it's actually at Toyota of North Hollywood (04154).

Unless mine has an actual issue I will take it in at the two year mark next February.

I got the Toyota Rav4 EV recall notice on May 5, 2015. On May 7, 2015, I called the dealer for service to replace the electric vehicle traction motor assembly. The service representative said "This is F-12, right, and it is still in process. Are you having any problems? Do you hear any noises from the motor? You may hear noises from the engine first..." We discussed that the defective components were made by Tesla not Toyota. I told the rep that there are no advance warnings prior to the existence of the condition. (This is stated in the Safety Recall F01(F11) 2012-2014 Model year Toyota Rav4 EV Customer Frequently Asked Questions flyer published mid March 2014.) Re: EV Traction Motor Assembly The service rep said they can not fix the EV yet. He agreed to call me when a fix is available.

The recall letter I received states that these problems were documented by Toyota in 2014 and 2015. In our rav4ev forum these problems were reported before that. This is an example that shows the importance of formal and fully documented complaints. Toyota is not admitting that these problems occurred before 2014.

Has anyone complained to NHTSA that Toyota is taking too long to repair/replace the potentially fatal defects in the electric vehicle traction motor assembly? Do we need to complain to NHTSA about Tesla (since they made the ECU, the software and the hardware involved.)?
