This is why you get a lemon lawyer and let him/her do the hard work. Their share depends on winning the lawsuit against a car manufacturer. In fact, I should call up one to see if I have a case.I don't imagine many are pursuing this because of all the obstacles. I have only read of one success case; the rest have been rejections through arbitration. I am not saying a buyback is not justified but given the amount of work for the low chance of success, I think most people wouldn't even bother.
Like any forum, there are those who seem to be here just to stir pots.How many are trying to whip up a frenzy over what is to most a minor annoyance? How many threads on the same subject can they create?
To me the fuel tank issue is news for me. Had I not read about the class action lawsuit, then I would not known about it. I am sure some on this forum are tired of these discussions. I suggest they put me on their ignore list. My intention was not to stir the pot, but have an open discussion, get a head count. But then there are the few that have nothing to contribute, but talk down on people.Like any forum, there are those who seem to be here just to stir pots.
I started the first (now closed) fuel tank fill thread to find out if others were experiencing the problem and what they were doing to “fix” said problem. I’m still trying to see this fixed and if raising the awareness of the problem is considered “whipping up a frenzy”, so be it. I used to expect a lot from Toyota but have lost a lot of confidence in the brand over the last few years. All you have to do is look around this forum to see a variety of problems with the 5th Gen Rav. What constitutes “minor annoyances” is in the eyes of the beholder. It’s -30 (wind chill) today in the midwest and I’m sure glad I don't need to add gas today.
Many of the folks who have responded in these threads have done it only to whip up frenzied support for Toyota vs the consumer.
Totally agree. If anyone is tired of this topic they are more than welcome to not read about it.To me the fuel tank issue is news for me.

It's a problem for some and a minor annoyance to others. The tank probably works 70%-80% of how it should. If one lives in a city or suburbia where gas stations are plentiful then it might not be a problem. If one lives or travels in rural or remote areas, then range can be more important. I am among the latter. Regardless, I still want my new vehicle to work 100% of the way it should.I do not own a RAV4, but was considering one, along with several others.
This thread seems a "lot about nothing." Will someone tell me .... how big is the problem? Can the tank only be filled 50%; 70%, 90%? Costco has signs asking you not to "top off" the tank.
I read threads on several different cars that I am considering. They are all the same. Rarely do I read positive comments. If I based buying a new vehicles on the owner comments I've read, .... I'm not sure I want to puchase ANY new vehicle.
