So two weeks ago I have the check ev system message come up but car was driving fine.

One issue I noticed many times is when I turn car on and then put it in reverse and car won't go anywhere.. Probably has happened 10 times. I didn't notice if it went into neutral, I wish I paid attention to that. Powering car off and turning back on seemed to fix that issue.

I've had to deal with California lemon law before with a Nissan Armada break issue that was a known diagnosed flaw. Only way to get what you want now is tools through a lemon law lawyer.

Didn't someone post contact info for one on here?

BS. My Leaf makes a horrible noise accelerating, the AC compressor fan is loud too. Nissan won't fix it claiming it is all normal, that's how great Nissan is.

I got a letter from NHTSA as they are interested about the long wait. Perhaps you guys can spend 5 minutes filling out the form and get their attention, venting on some forum doesn't help.

I'm not sure if you saw, but Toyota released the recall fix to dealers (barely) within the timeframe they originally specified to the NHTSA, and several forum members have already had the recall work completed. While we all would have liked Toyota to act more promptly, they did keep to their word after the recall was announced.

I got it done a week ago as an out-of-stater... So far so good! Hopefully this really fixes all the check EV system errors!

What strings did you have to pull? I received my recall remedy notice, called my local dealer here in Denver/Aurora, and they said they don't know how to do it. They referred me to call Toyota Corporate. I'm now on hold with said corporate phone line after giving my VIN.

Corporate says they will only do the recall service in California. Who do I need to contact at Toyota?

I just brought my 2 rav4ev's in for the software update.
They couldn't do it immediately because they need to charge my 12 volt (aux) battery first to full.
Even though I drive it enough (imo) to keep it charged, it wasn't enough to do software update.

So if you are planning to take it in, and you happen to have a 12 volt battery charger handy, charge it to full before you take it in, could save you some time.
