You all have had your tc's for some time, im wondering if annoying probs occur after some time. For example does the audio hatch always close correctally or after time does it stop closing? I've heard the audio hatch squeaks and the trunk hatch rattles. Also are these probs fixable? Thx guys!

I've had no problems with my radio cover, however I must admit that I almost never use it. As far as the hatch rattling and the sun roof rattling... well yes, this is rather common. There is a TSB for the sunroof rattles, not sure about the hatch. The sunroof rattles i'm hoping were resolved in the '06. Still too early to tell. But if you do experience them just take your car in... thats what your warranty's for right?

I thought I had an issue with my radio cover cuz it would get stuck when i'd try to open it.. problem was that i was pressing it in all the wrong places.. now it opens fine hehe. My hatch started rattling a few months ago but has actually stopped. Havent heard a rattle all month. Another thing that bothers me are the little covers on the side of the seats.. not sure of the name but its the cover on the latches that you use to fold the seat when sitting in the back. They keep falling off and once i thought I lost one of them
... other than that. its great!

do not fill the coin holder all the way to the top! there is another thread on this, but it should be everywhere in bold letters, i filled mine all the way to the top (cuz i hate carrying change) and some coins fell in the back and now i can't open it all the way, it sucks, hopefully toyota will fix it for free, its only been a month and a half since i got my car

Lol. Not sure it says anywhre in the manual that it's a "coin holder". You can fix it yourself in 5 minutes. Or you can spend 4 hours at the dealer. Your call.

Only real problems..and they are very minor... are "hair trigger" horn button and emergency flasher switches. I think they are just a touch too easy to activate and I have done so a couple of times just by slightly brushing by them. Like I said...extremely minor interior problems.

Well I just hit 18k on my tC and have a problem. For some reason I cant get the tire preasure light to turn off. I mean I turn it off but then 10 min later it is back on. I have checked my preasure a ton of time now and nothing. Now I have a clinking noise in my right from whell well when I come to a stop. I think something came undone. I am going to take it to the dealership to try and get it fixed.

please explain the 5 min fix, someone told me that you have to take the whole center console off, but if theres an easier way, please tell

Sounds like you broke off a wheel speed sensor. Get it to the dealer quick. Your ABS won't work if it is the wheel speed sensor.

Pull up the plastic molding around the shifter (grab side silver pieces and pull toward yourself, just be careful) - you don't need to completely remove it, just get it loose so you can access the next part. Then you can pull out the cupholders/coin holder piece. It's actually less than a minute if you've done it before, but don't rush if it's the first time you are doing it.
