Original owner, 204K miles. Have a V-6, Limited -- which is the same engine they are putting in Highlanders now, I believe. I did have to replace the charcoal canister last year ($1200) but otherwise have only changed oil, tires, and battery. My mechanic thinks it will go another $100K miles. At almost 9 years old now, this car has exceeded every expectation I have for it, and probably will cause everything I own after it to not live up to expectations. I have done everything in this car. My kids have grown up in this car. If I had kids of driving age, I would make them drive this car. Best car purchase I have ever made.
2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I love this car. My uncle gave it to me after he no longer needed it. I drive it to school and basketball games and everything. I love the commanding view and it is relatively easy to park. It's a stylish and fun SUV and my friends always complement the interior (dashboard). I This car is very very dependable and I will use it in college and probably forever!
2007 Rav 4 First 100,000 miles= a real problem
At 80,000, external oil line blew- lost all oil but was just coming up an I 95 ramp so I was able to save engine- This occurred before the recall-
- Bad battery in the first 18 months.
- $600 air bag electronic line went bad- no recall.
- Disk brake rotor plate- front and rear and to be replace- under 60,000 miles.
100,000- to 238,000 - Car works like a Toyota - and even get much better mileage than the first 100,000.-
Bottom line- the engineering team should have been fired.
This engine is way over powered- love it getting on to an interstate. Has more cargo space than 1990 4runner and 1999 pathfinder
Who ever came up with the idea of running the camshaft oil line on the outside of the engines need to have serious training- a 100 years this line has been on the inside of the engine.
