Meh... I just want to know what the true issue is. Why does replacing the alternator seem to cause this problem???

Well I just got my FJ Cruiser back from Round Rock Toyota Dealership here in Texas. I got my Alternator replaced the 45,000 mile service, fuel injectors cleaned, fluids flushed, about $1100 in repairs. Yuck! Better yet on my way home form this dealership 4 lights on my dash came on, the Check engine, Traction Control and the two VSC lights, these were the same exact lights that came one before I brought it in to Round Rock Toyota to get the alternator fixed, now on my way home from getting it fixed they are on again.

Not Happy! I bring my car back to Round Rock Toyota the next day, they look at it supposedly and tell me it needs 2 new catalytic converters. This is on a Toyota FJ Cruiser with 44'000 miles on it mind you, always garaged, meticulously maintained at the dealership only and I have never put anything except premium gas in it as well. I have filed a complaint with Toyota Customer service and will be updating this post when i hear back from them. This 8 year old FJ Cruiser is now having very expensive problem after problem with only 44,000 miles on it.

Approximately 9 months ago I had the Christmas tree of warning lights illuminate on my 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser's console. VSC OFF, VSC TRAC, slip indicator and the check engine light all turned on and have remained on for 9 months. Along with the visual indicators, I have noticed a decrease in power and a abnormal sound to the exhaust. Apparently, these lights are linked to a diagnostic code. Multiple code readers show a bad catalytic converter, which needs to be replaced. I tried replacing all of the O2 sensors and Air/Fuel sensors without any success.

I am not fortunate enough to fall under some type of warranty, therefore I'm stuck finding ways to fix these problems on my own. I think the only fix for this situation is to replace the catalytic converters, which will cost a pretty penny. Between this, the drive train problems and the bad torque converter, I will not be purchasing another Toyota vehicle.

FJ Cruiser

  • Manual transmission
  • 80,200 miles

I bought my FJ Cruiser there, had it serviced NO WHERE ELSE. I have now gone through 3 catalytic converters in 2 years. The last time i brought it in i was told that that section of my car is now 2000 miles out of warranty and that they would not cover the part. When i ask how this issue could keep happening even though they "fixed it" I was blamed for using cheap gas (i use premium only for the life of the car). They have never fixed the problem with my car and they now want me to pay for more parts till they get it right.

Their Toyota franchise competition is over in Murray, its not that far away. If your considering doing business here i would suggest looking at other dealers.
