    Trailer hitch

    Recently purchased Rav $ hybrid and would like to put on a trailer hitch just for bikes. Dealer says nothing approved by Toyota. Also, cannot fill gas tank all the way up as it clicks off at 3/4 full and dealer says not to top off. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks
  3. Toyota Launches “This Is Our Sport” 2020 GR Supra Campaign PLANO, Texas (July 15, 2019) – Performance, capability and style are on full display with today’s launch of the all-new 2020 Toyota GR Supra campaign, “This Is Our Sport.” In a nod to Toyota’s sports car heritage, the campaign reflects the excitement Supra drivers will feel in an iconic car designed with them in mind—a car that pushes the limits. “The return of the Toyota Supra has been a long time coming, and it’s well worth the wait,” said Ed Laukes, group vice president, Toyota Marketing, Toyota Motor North America. “The new campaign highlights the thrill of getting to know the 2020 GR Supra and a rediscovered appreciation for the simple joy of driving.” Broadcast & Digital The 30-second, 15-second and 6-second broadcast and digital spots were directed by Ozan Biron. These unique spots highlight the Supra’s exhilarating blend of power, precision and agility and inspire drivers to own the sports car they always dreamed about. In “Track Day”, Julie Andrews’ “Getting to Know You” provides the soundtrack as driver and car glide harmoniously around the iconic Road Atlanta track, showcasing the Supra’s undisputable performance and style as they get to know each other. The :30-second spot “Track Day,” from Toyota’s latest campaign “This Is Our Sport,” features the all-new 2020 GR Supra. The 6-second spots, appropriately titled “0 to 60”, “Balanced”, “Face Off”, “Joy”, “Ribbon”, “Sport Mode”, and “Walks On Water”, demonstrate the spirit of a new sports car: sleek, stylish, powerful and ready to command any road. The :06-second spot “Joy,” from Toyota’s new campaign “This Is Our Sport,” highlights the stunning design of the all-new 2020 GR Supra. The :06-second spot “Face Off,” from Toyota’s latest campaign “This Is Our Sport,” shows off the performance of the all-new 2020 GR Supra. The campaign creative was led by Saatchi & Saatchi with Zenith Media responsible for TV and Outdoor media buying. The return of the 2020 GR Supra was announced with a TV spot in February’s “Big Game.” The high-energy spot, “Wizard”, set the stage for the return of Toyota’s iconic sports car after a 21-year hiatus. Media Placements “Track Day”, the 30-second spot from the new campaign, will air across motorsports TV programming; a custom long-form video called “Game Of Horsepower” will feature a unique twist on the classic game of H.O.R.S.E. and will appear on Reddit, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; additional custom brand integrations include GQ, Twitter’s @Marvel LIVE, as well as exclusive auto partner of Sports Illustrated’s Fashionable 50 event. Print media includes a custom French door cover where Motor Trend and Road & Track subscribers will receive an exclusive pull-out poster tapping into the nostalgia of ’90s car posters. The Road & Track partnership also features a custom augmented reality (AR) integration, which will allow users to virtually see the Supra in their driveway or garage. Digital partners include Google, Amazon, CBS, IGN and Fast Company with Amobee for programmatic. Social partners include Twitter, Reddit, Facebook and Instagram while audio extensions include Tune In and Gimlet. Out-of-home (OOH) will include high-impact billboards in 17 markets. Additionally, spots will air on national and digital radio as well as within select movie titles in theaters nationwide in conjunction with National CineMedia. The spots are available for viewing here. For images and credits, please click here. About the All-New 2020 GR Supra The all-new Supra will be available later this month in two grades 3.0 and 3.0 Premium, as well as a Launch Edition, which is based on the 3.0 Premium grade. Enthusiasts can get their 2020 Supra at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $49,990, with the Launch Edition models starting at $55,250. Both will be powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine that produces 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

    Who has the Avalon with most mileage?

    Front seats

    I found a parts car local that has really good front seats. Are the front seats out of a 2001 direct replacements for a 2006? Both are limited leather seats. So I need to know if the power plugs are the same as well. Mine is a 2006 3.3 L hybrid and the one I found is a 2001 3.0 L V6.

    2016 Highlander Sound System 😩

    I noticed the rattling sound coming from the back as well, and it drove me notes. I initially thought it was coming from inside the lift gate. Turns out the majority of the rattle was coming from the license plate, and the license plate border surround that’s placed overtop of the license plate, both of which are mounted to the vehicle with the same screws. Additionally, I noticed they were only mounted via the top two screws, and that there were no predrilled holes for the bottom two screws. I sat back there, with the music cranked up, and that license plate was rattling around like crazy. After securing it with the two bottom screws, and using rubber washers with the screws (also placed rubber washers on top two screws), I eliminated the vast majority of the rattle. Another option you can do, in addition to securing the license plate better, is adding Dynomat to your vehicles doors and lift gate. It makes a WORLD of a difference! Blocks out a ton of outside road noise, etc., but more importantly insulates the doors and lift gate, giving you much crisper sound. Cost is reasonable depending on how much of the vehicle you want Dynomatted, but worth every penny!

  10. I'm new to this forum. I'm hoping that someone can guide me to and/or share information regarding what is considered to be "normal" gas mileage for the 2016 Highlander Limited (I do not own the hybrid version). I'm averaging about 13 to 14 miles per gallon. Something about that doesn't seem correct. Please note that my friend owns a 2016 fully loaded non-hybrid Honda Pilot and indicates that she gets about 20 miles per gallon in the city and up to 30 miles per gallon on the road. Please share information and suggestions. Thanks, Luke

    Weird Stuff happening to our Venza.

    Good luck. Please let me know what you are able to find.
  12. Hopefully I reach some Toyota Techs or experts here... It's been over a year now my wife's 2015 Venza XLE V6 had it's car battery dying now and then. And that's with a fresh battery from Toyota. My wife read several threads on possibilities but we still don't know what's up. It seemed to happen after the headlights were on (auto mode). It happened other times during the day as well. We turn the motor off by pushing the start button and we would here the bell chiming, which is not normal. Normally you just see the doors open symbol and there's no sounds when you leave the car. She took the car to the dealer who of course told her the battery tested bad. They gave her a new Toyota battery which didn't last long before the same things were happening. She'd have a dead battery often. I went ahead and bought a new battery last week and I ran a voltage check and alternator check. I found no significant drain on the battery and the alternator was putting out 13.8 volts. Today I drove her car and I got the chiming again when i was exiting the car. I've read forums with problems like the motorized hatch isn't closing all the way, the brake lights switch is bad, the FOB is low, etc. Near as I can tell it's not those things. I need help from anyone who has seen this kind of issue. I will check again for a Parasitic leak at the positive terminal. THANKS

    Toyota+Alexa Update

    Hi, Group. First post here, but searched the forums and didn't find anything. I received an email that my 2018 Sienna is now eligible for the ApplePlay/Amazon Alexa update. Has anyone been through the update yet? If so, how long did it take and was there a charge for the update? The initial announcement was vague on both pieces. Also, what is your initial opinion of the new functionality? Thanks. JHB

    2006 Highlander Hybrid no heat???

    BTW, I also have a 06 Highlander Hybrid. It’s been a great SUV. I have about 160K miles on it. Still provides very good gas mileage in town, but I no longer hit 32mpg for extensive city driving. It has dropped to 30-31mpg. Only gets 28 mpg on the interstate at 65-70mpg. I had the spark plugs changed recently, but no change.

    White smoke coming from Muffler

    Laureen, It was a good call to turn back as a precautionary measure. It could be a number of things. Did you recently fill up with gas? It may the fuel. Or it may be coolant seeping in the head thus mixing with fuel. If this were the case, the RAV4 would be running very rough. When you checked the oil, did you notice any frothing or bubbling on the dip stick? At this time, is it running smoothly or roughly at idle? Is there any moisture coming out of the tailpipe when it is running now? It may have been none of the above and it could have been something as off the wall as water in your tailpipe and or muffler from driving in deep water from heavy rain.

    Toyota shutdown

    I have 2002 Camry V SERIES with automatic transmission and 204k miles. When I run camry in the morning, it runs normal for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, when temperature gauge is at middle, car runs normal in all gears. However, at stop light car hesitates when car has run for 30 min and finally car shuts down. When I restart hot car, check engine light shows and engine kicks but does not start at all. I wait for 4 hours and let it "cool down" and car starts and runs normal. When car is cold all gear works normal. No gear shifting issue or noise. When hot, no gear noise but car become hesitant to start at stop light and stops all together with check engine light. This car was not used for about 3 months but ran fine. This camry has many replaced parts (new PCV valve, cleaned throttle body, new distributor cap+spark plugs+distrib cables, newer timing belt+oil pump, new radiator, fuel pump, barke, battery). Most parts changes in last year or so and no pproblem until now. Transmission oil level is normal when car running in park on level ground and transmission oil looks norma (no burnt smell and pinkish) Is it transmission issue or engine/engine control issue? How do I diagnose the problem and fix it? Thanks in advance for your help. I am newbie but enthusiastic and will try suggestions. Thanks, Ben
  21. Picked up my first Toyota a couple months ago, 1990 Camry with the 4 banger 5 speed. Engine is running good as far as I can tell, theres some noises under the hood, synchros are going out, cv axles clattering away so I've been babying it. I've been wanting a similar year accord(93) but this car has been keeping me entertained so far. Going to get some axles so she dont die on me, I was hoping to let it go until I can swap the motor but I don't think itll make it. Found someone with a 3sge in pieces, says it's all there. With wiring harness, no ecu. I dont know how deep yall get into old models and swaps on this site but that's where I'm at. If anybody knows anyone give me a holler. Thanks.

    Free 07 prius

    Hello everyone, I have the opportunity to be gifted an 07 Prius gen 2 with 144,191 miles. It is in need of a new exhaust, due to the catilitic converter issue, tires, and possibly brakes and rotors. It has it's original battery that reads a 7. Not really sure what that means. This is the information I have. I'd like to hear opinions on weather I should commit. Thanks all.

    2006 Six Cylinder Engine running rough

    I know this is an old post but for the future: I had a 1999 Tacoma V6 4x4 and it would start to run "rough" like described above, I'd run the injector cleaner through it. I'd let the gas get about 1/4 of a tank, then pour in a whole bottle (Lucas brand) and then let the tank get almost empty. Sometimes I'd do this twice and it would clear it up pretty quick. One time I had a fuel filter full of dirt as I was an avid offroader.
