Toyota - My cars leaks water
Defective Windshield Cowl - Complaint
CALIFORNIA -- Toyota has a defective plastic part in the Toyota Rav4's called "windshield cowl" .... this is a plastic piece that sits under the hood and windshield and keeps water out of the car. This is not a mechanical mechanism that should have any normal wear and tear. Toyota acknowledges that it's defective but is not covering it under warranty or is doing any recall on it. The repair through the Dealer is $399.00. I'm having a really hard time wrapping my head around paying for something that is defective. On rainy days like today, I've had to borrow a car so I can get to work because if I drive mine, the passenger floorboard fills up with about 2 inches of water, then ultimately becomes moldy before it completely dries out. I've been experiencing this problem since 2009.
