I haven't had any problems with my Rav4. The only work I've had done is normal maintainance. The only things I don't like about the car is that it doesn't turn on a dime. It is a pretty wide turn and it is difficult if not impossible to u-turn on a two lane road. You will inevitably need to go off the road a bit. Other than that I love my Rav. It is really fun to drive, has good pick up and is very reliable.
The large trunk area that can carry a ton of stuff. I've moved a dryer in the back of my car as well as many other things. People are always surprised about how much I can fit in my Rav.
