Dashboard is sticky and shiny. The sheen on the dash also creates a glare on sunny days, which creates a safety hazard. Toyota is avoiding a recall for the use of inferior parts.

Rear window visibility is my problem, at dark and when it rains it's near impossible to see clearly anything through my back window. The rear window sunshade is stuck in the up position making it very difficult to see well through the rear window in the rain and when it's dark. If it was stuck in the down position that would be ok, but it's not. I've read on the internet that Toyota dealers have charged almost $900. A couple of years ago to fix one. First off there should be a way to lower it even if it's not fixed to go up and down. I'm very disappointed in Toyota. When I called them about my dynamic cruise control not working last year they wouldn't fix it for free or at greatly reduced price because I was past the three year warranty, even though I had less then 25,000 or 26000 miles on it when I called. It hadn't worked at that time for a good 6 to 8 months. Toyota does not stand behind their products in my opinion. ## VIN failed ##
