Good afternoon I have a 2007 Toyota Yaris with around 108,000 miles. I made an appt with a local dealer to go thru 3 recalls in my car and additionally to check on my rear-driver seatbelt which is not retracting (it failed on 6-26-16). I have read various forums stating that various owners of my model car have had the same issue. The dealer finished the 3 recalled issues. The issue with the rear seatbelt was related to a ball bearing in the system that was not allowing for the seatbelt to recoil. The dealer wanted around $350 to fix the issue. I think this is a safety issue the car is not new but an item that is needed for safety should not go bad within a fairly long timeline, it should at least outlast the car. I have read various forums with people complaining on this same problem. How can this not be a problem related to quality and safety of the equipment Toyota sells? additional note: The dealer refused to fix my car's airbag (takata recall) because they did not have the parts yet.

I was sitting at a red light when my 2007 Toyota Yaris was rammed from behind in a rear end collision. I sustained several injuries. My air bag didn't deploy, but the air bag light came on. In addition, the seatbelts didn't work either. I suffered a comminuted fracture to my left distal clavicle, fractured L1 transverse process, and I'm having surgery to fix the problems that were caused from my face hitting the steering wheel. This happened on Oct 20, 2015 and I just found out this is a common problem with 2007 Toyota Yaris'. I can provide addition information is needed.

Seat belt light came "on" while seat belt was fastened. Mechanic told me today that the diagnostic code told him that the clockspring assembly needed to be replaced - and unless I spent $489+ to fix it that neither the airbag nor seat belts would work - so it was mandatory to fix it!! the consumer stated the mechanic discovered broken wires in the clockspring assembly. The consumer stated he suffered a financial loss of almost $500 for the repair.

I contacted Toyota Hawaii during the first week of February and was told there has not been any fix for the problem and that I should wait and call back in a while. I would think that the serious nature of this recall would get faster action by the manufacture. Just wanted to know from you if this seems like reasonable thinking.

I have a 2007 Yaris with a faulty center pillar sound insulator due to the safety recall notice. My local dealership(classic Toyota of round rock, Texas) refuses to service my Toyota vehicles, stemming back from an incident in which I was overcharged $750 on a 2008 Scion xb last year. They have told me to 'take my car elsewhere for repairs"..but this is not a "repair" due to wear and tear..it's a safety recall. I have been in contact with the customer relations manager, and she is unwilling to process my safety recall work. I feel as if I'm being cheated out of the guaranteed warranty I purchased with my new vehicle, and they are intentionally risking my safety by not fixing a dangerous recall (seat belt tensioner). Coincidentally, the seatbelt already failed to work properly when my car was struck by a small truck directly in the driver's door...if the seatbelt was correctly working I would likely have suffered less damage to my shoulders and neck. My next step will be to report this to the local police and file a complaint with the better business bureau. Though, I hope Y'all will assist on fixing my recall. Thank you.
