I think for your car it's HYQ1512V but not 100%. Someone that actually has your year ES could look at the back of the key for you. A key with the transmitter is not going to be $36 they are $150 and...

There should always be oil in the filter no matter how long the car has been sitting. As for lubing the gasket you don't have to do that with the Toyota filters they come with grease already applied,...

You are supposed to "scare" the person behind you when you slow down quickly that's what brake lights are for. Or would you rather the person remain perfectly calm and slam into you.

Check to see if the wires have fallen off the point where they are soldered on to the terminal bonded to the glass. Also I thought the rear defog used a circuit breaker.

Regen braking uses the electric motor as a brake before it uses the calipers/pads. If the battery can't take any more charge then the conventional system kicks in. Also this means that Chevy has to...

Way more compromise. Gets about the same mileage, much heavier, about the same acceleration. Costs 3 times the price, can't drive it in my climate or you'll get stranded. Not to mention almost no...

Have you checked your engine mounts? If they are shot especially the rear one then you'll get metal on metal and that will transfer the low frequency into the cabin. Not saying that is your problem...

Wait, this car has the manual unlock/lock button on the doors, is that correct? Does the computer prevent them from moving/unlocking the door if the smart key is not in range?

I was expecting the labour to be more. The price they charged for the plenum gasket is downright robbery, it's about $10 from Toyota. Did a dealer or independent shop do this?

I don't think the price is out of line really. The labour involved is quite extensive, remove plenum, drain coolant, clean old gasket material and surfaces, apply sealant etc. it's a lot of work.
