My car has same code P0171 only, but nothing wrong can be told when I drive my car except check engine light on. I sent my to Toyota dealer, they said thermostat need to be replaced, but I paid $300, still light there. so Toyota will give me no more charge repair my car. then they replaced intake gaskit, still didn't help. finally they replaced one used part MAF sensor to fix my problem. they didn't want me know that, but I still figure out what they did with my car, because first time I guess that part defective and I left mark on it. so I thought this is a ture problem. later on, if somebody
I am thinking what model car will be my next car to own. I have 2 Toyota cars today, I used to trust Toyota quality, but now I am losing my interest at them. most of my friend said Toyota get worst since 2000, latest model are worse than america cars at some aspects. car quality or customer service. especially, when your cars are out of MFW. I have even asked my friend who owned Toyota cars, everybody has a story about dealing with dealership. who will be trusted for our poor owner?
thank you for your reminder. I will keep all invioces from Toyota, and I have handed complaint letter to head office, they gave me a case number. after 6 times to visit this dealership, my car finally has been repaired. but they put one used MAF senser on my car.

Toyota dearler said: only Toyota computer can hook up on Toyota car to read error code, other will trigger problem or damage parts. Toyota technician replaced different parts three time when I sent car in for no charge service because I used my meter to my car to try to read error code.
My 2004 Corolla has an engine warning light on, the code is P0171, so I brought my car to NORTHWEST TOYOTA in Brampton to repair on Feb 4, 2009. After engine check (labor rate $103), I was told by a confident service consultant in front desk Raymond Rajgopaul that my car had a minor and common problem. I have accepted estimation and second day the technician has replaced thermostat and new battery for my car. I was told my car was completely fixed and asked me to pay for around $450. When I picked up my car in parking lot after payment, I used my ODB-II meter to check and still found some warn
