Cannot downshift from 5th to 4th gear


Recommended Posts

Hi - first post. 🙂

For a couple of days now I cannot downshift from 5th to 4th gear on my 2015 Yaris. I have to shift to 3rd, and then to 4th. There is no grinding noise or clunky feel, it just won't go into 4th from 5th, like there is something blocking it.

When I am parked up with the engine off, I have no problem downshifting from 5th to 4th. Not sure if I should try it while stationary with the engine on?

Does anyone know what the problem is likely to be, the cost and if it can potentially be covered by Toyota Warranty (it has only ever been serviced by a Toyota garage, so Relax Warranty should be in place)? Car has around 75k miles on it, and I have had it for just over 3 years with no other problems.

If Relax is in place, take it to dealer and ask then to drive it with you. No point messing about if it's covered.

If it has been serviced by a Toyota dealer since 1st June 2021, the Relax warranty should be in place - although you should have had an e-mail confirmation of the warranty from the dealer.

If last serviced before 1st June 2021, this would have been before the Re!ax warranty scheme started.

I've just checked through my emails, and yes I do have the Relax warranty as I had my car serviced 21st June 2021.

Ok - I will take it in to the dealer, and hopefully it will be covered under the terms of the warranty.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
