Transmission Gears Seized At 66K Miles While Driving
I have had the absolute worst experience with my 2010 Toyota Sienna that has 66K miles. The transmission gears seized (completely locked up) while I was driving down the road, causing such friction/tension that it exploded through the top of the cover of the transmission. Parts of the transmission were falling out of the car and the transmission fluid completely emptied onto the road. This created an incredibly dangerous situation. Transmission repair = over $5000. I was outraged and took my complaints all the way to the top of Toyota Corporate. Worst experience EVER. I will never, ever buy a Toyota again, and I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy a Toyota unless they plan on dropping $5K immediately after the warranty expired at 60,000. Deborah Houston, Executive Analyst, was unpleasant.
