Feb 2012   Replaced driver side rear window motor/mechanism - internal parts were broken that made the window loose (it still worked but would move around when open). 
Sep 2012   Passenger side rear window mechanism failed. Replaced with new part from Toyota. Have replaced both mechanisms for the rear windows in the last shop said the new part is more robust than the OEM, so it should last. 
May 2013   TPS bad - shown by error codes, check engine light on. Car not really drivable once the TPS went bad (lurching & bucking). Replaced TPS - issue fixed.
