Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Locks and latches

"the driver's door handle broke. I could only open the driver door from inside. Every time when I needed to enter the car, I had to open other doors and open the driver door from inside. Asked Toyota Company to pay, they refused (out of warranty). I had to fix it out of pocket. I never had a door handle break on any car I ever had. Toyota is using cheep materials in their cars?"

"Vehicle is a four cylinder automatic. Trans failed at approx 14,000 miles. Trans was replaced under warranty by Toyota. Vehicle now has approx 20,000 miles on the odometer.

Toyota's concern is that there may be a problem with an entire production run of transmissions."
