Took the car in, the servie rep said that's how they drive. Second time we took it in, one of the local techs said they should not drive that way. They reset the computer, same issue, we took it back they replaced transmission, same issue, Toyota Rep came and drove the car. He said that's how they drive. My wife (her car) wants to file claim with Toyota, but I have heard they won't do anything. Has anyone one filed a claim and get resolution?

I have reported transmission problems every time I have have had the car serviced. It is now at 23k. I got the same feedback about the braking, The Toyota Area tech had them erase and reprogram the transmission software to "re learn my driving habits". No change. I had my second occurance of a specific issue that I want to know if anyone else has experienced. Coming off a ramp to merge into high speed traffic, when it was right I stepped on the gas to get to speed to merge into the traffic. At the time I assume I was going about 35 mph. When I applied the gas it felt like to me the transmission went to neutral. The engine roared and I went no where forward. I had to swerve back into the merge lane and onto the shoulder. I thought the transmission had broke. My wife screamed at me. Then when I tried the gas again it drove like normal. I have merged many times and this is only the 2nd time it has happened. This one almost cause a major accident. I told the Dealer yesterday to fix it, or I was going to put it into their dumpster. No car/transmission is worth my family's safety. This happen to me once before but fortunately there was no traffic around me that time. The Dealer that time said no problem was detected. No code was found in the computer. Maybe they should define a new code for the computer to use. I had 170k miles on my 1999 Avalon, I want it back. We have 3 other toyota cars in the family, so this is not a hate Toyota message.

Hi I have a 2011 Rav 4 that did this and it was because for some reason the brake pedal sensor was not installed correctly go back to dealership and talk to them ask them to inspect the brake pedal sensor if the computer sensor says it is baking and accelerating at same time it cuts power to engin we found out our problem because brake light started staying on all the time hubby was following me and noticed it one day

Did your service tech ever explain what happened when the transmission felt like it went to neutral while driving. I have a 2011 Camry LE and the same thing happened this past weekend. The techs can't find a problem. Unfortunately, the car doesn't engage. Thanks,
