who has this happened to?

My car is an 02 Celica GT. I picked it up from toyota in june of this year. my car shutters when i stop. esp when i get off the highway. Toyota has cleaned out the Intake, throttle body, maf sensor, brakes, gave it a full tune up, and it wouldnt stop. toyota claims that if there was something wrong, the computer would say so. well last week the computer died. the outboard stopped working. i just got it back after waiting for 5 days.they put a New computer in it, and now, guess what, no difference. is anyone else getting this problem?

No, that's crazy! Sounds like you have an imbalance in the motor or something. Just keep bringing it back to them & tell them its wrong.

I would try adding an extra ground strap from the negative on the battery to the engine block. Never know.

That is weird. Just keep taking it back to toyota, hopefully they will eventually find out whats causing it.
