A Rav4 Can't Start
By ToyotaNoMore on 07/01/09 09:04 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned many Toyota (4Runner, Camry) - this is the third one and the last one - quality control has been an issue for my Rav4. There were quite a lot squeeze noise on the plastic part in the interior even when it's brand new. Spent some time to fix them. Now second year - the vehicle won't be able to start every 5 to 7 days. It's not battery for sure. It could be security system, starter, spark -- dealers (yes, I tried two Toyota dealers) won't fix it because they can't duplicate the error so they can't fix it. Oh, by the way, the audio system display started to not show anything, or strange Japanese characters. If you press the panel really hard - it fixes the problem.

VVT OIL hose Failure. Engine replacement
By West Coast Toast on 06/13/09 19:24 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just like the post from Deb on 05/05/2009, last month my 2007 Toyota rav 4 with v6 and 38,000 kms had its vvt hose break spraying oil in engine compartment but no engine light came on. Caused engine failure. Had to replace the engine - wasn't easy but they did it under warranty after pushing them hard.

Catastrophic Engine Failure/vvt oil leak
By Deb on 05/15/09 04:05 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I used to love this car. I ordered it specifically. We own several Toyotas. After only 37000 miles I had a VVT hose leak spraying the car engine and making loud grinding sound. The dealer will not examine the valves or open the drip pan. I have found this is more common than Toyota is letting on. Toyota has only replaced the hose (60000 power train warranty) and will not agree to look for any damage that may have occurred. The warning light does not come on until the oil is gone and the engine is frozen. Horrible combination. Hope this helps someone else avoid this situation.

Steering shaft problem
By Rav in NC on 05/11/09 07:46 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Beware of intermediate steering shaft problem with not only Rav4s but apparently other Toyotas as well. Do your research before buying. My rav4 is not 3 years old and mostly highway mileage but over 36k. Told by Toyota servicing dealer that the intermediate steering should be replaced at a cost of $1600. There is a tsb "Toyota service bulletin" for this problem but apparently since I'm over the 36k mileage (even tho car is less than 3 years old), I'm on my own. If Toyota steps up to cover this, I'm a customer for life. If not, this is my last Toyota. So much for quality.

New England's RUST.

Review

For those thinking on buying this car and are from the New England area, I've been driving it for the last 18months and I am already having rust issues on all wheels. The rust created by the environment is not eligible for the Warranty.

Love it

Review

We love this car. Consistently get 24 mpg if I keep it under 80. It handles like a sports car, very quick. Interior layout is the most convenient, cup holders are up front for easy access. Don't like where Toyota put the cruise control & road noise is a little excessive but tolerable. We are currently looking for another one for my wife.

Fun driving this powerful monster...
By AJ on 02/15/09 18:09 PM (PST)

2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I am still driving this '07 RAV4 V6 2WD. Have no problems except the stereo needed to be replaced once due to manufacturing defect. This is a sweet buy for a 3.5L engine and its HP. I wish the braking system was a little better given the car's engine power, but not of big concern. I love it every time I jump in for a drive. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for power and reliability in affordable price. Agree, looks could have been made a little better, hope Toyota comes up with new looks for this powerful monster in future.

Love my RAV4!

Review

My RAV4 is so fun to drive. It has enough oomph getting on freeway ramps even with the four-cylinder model. I've had great mileage; 22 in town and 27 on the highway. Of course, anything has to be better than the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer I had before. :-) Even with FWD, living in the snowy Midwest, although it's a little squirrelly, I've been able to get around just fine.

Great car

Vehicle

2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

V6 gets 29 mpg on hwy - fantastic! Gets less than 20 in city traffic. Doesn't live up to the 22 mpg city listed, and I drive like a grandma. Nice upgraded stereo sound, but I'm on my 3rd unit - it has a known defect/short that JBL can't seem to fix. I'm hoping 3 is a charm. A very comfortable, powerful car. Bluetooth option is nice for hands free cell phone use.

Love My Rav

Review

I have had my Rav for 1 yr 5 months. I have no regrets. The reliability factor is a solid 10. It handles the road very well in all types of weather. I have noticed better gas mileage within the last 7-8 months. It is easy to drive. I love the amount of room I have for storage in the back. The glove box is quite roomy also.
