2001 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


The vapor valve, which usually stops the refueling when the gas tank is filled up, has been faulty. In essence, when trying to fill up a gas, the pressure in the gas tank builds up and stops the gas pump from refueling every 1 to 2 gallons it has taken us many garage visits, including Toyota dealers, to identify the problem correctly. Toyota usa refused to cover the problem since they claims that our car is out of warranty (Toyota Sienna le 2001). We only contend that this defect was due to the faulty original inspection at the factory and ask that Toyota should be responsible for its own products.

I have a 2001 Toyota Sienna.. having problems with evap control system. I cannot fill up the gas tank continously.. stops every few seconds... sometimes spilling gasoline..(started at about 46,000 miles).. I paid $98 dollars to a local toyotal service center to have it check. They said, my van has a problem with the "charcoal cannister" and would cost me $500 dollars to replace... I called Toyota customer service to find out if they will cover the cost of the replacement since they have a settlement issue with epa regarding these kind of problems. I understand they have a $20 million dollar settlement w/ epa for these kinds of violations.. but they cover vehicles manufactured up to 1998 only. They have extended the warranties for these vehicles to 14 years or 150,000 miles... if they are covering vehicles much older than mine, I think that the warranty for my vehicle should also be extended because it has a problem relating to the emissions. Also, $500 dollars is too much for a charcoal cannister replacement.. I would appreciate it very much if you can get this issue resolve with Toyota. They can always get the $500 from the $20 million settlement they had agreed w/ epa. Thank you very much, esteban
