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


Review

Good: Many trips with family and dog via 3rd row seating. Love the V6. Has great pull into traffic. Lots of room, especially in the cargo. 61k miles in 4 years. Great little basic car. Runs smoothly and well. My paint/finish is holding up well. Negative: Replaced Driving Shaft @dealer =$500. Broken Joint on shaft. Should have a recall on that since it seems to be common that should not happen on a car this new. Interior does seem kind of loud and seats are basic. Don't like the floor mats.(hard to clean) Needs stronger front bumper. Wheel wells also rusting out, would like better coverage on the hubcaps.

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


Review

This is my first Rav4 and i love the way this suv drives and handles. A very nice quiet comfortable ride and great handling. The V6 engine in this vehicle is silky smooth and is very powerful and refined. Love that V6 ! owned a 2007 CR-V but Toyota has a much better SUV. My rav4 has 140,000 km (90 000 mi) and still looks and drives like new !


Best Features

buttery smooth V6, handles great, good fuel economy for a V6, great looks.


Worst Features

less hard plastics in interior, put a rear lift gate.

2007 Toyota RAV4 SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have always wanted a toyota and this was my 1st experience. Love all features except the 4WD feature auto turns off once you hit 25 mph. Biggest concern is paint chipping off the hood. Looks like air bubbles that have popped. 1st noticed within 30 days brought back to dealer and all they said was go to a body shop not their problem. Never had this with any other vehicle I have owned. The pain on bumper is fine but now their are pinholes showing rust all over the hood and chips the size of pencil tops . Car has less than 40K miles on it and is rarely driven on dirt/gravel roads. Who can i contact to address this issue, it is obviously a mfg defect.


Best Features

roomiest in the back and the storage compartment under the floor.


Worst Features

Replace all the vehicles with defective paint. Not sure if it is all colors of just the navy blue that I have. Also change hinge on back door as it opens on the wrong side. Pretty inconvenient.

2007 Toyota RAV4 SUV Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love my RAV4. Comfortable to drive on long trips, loads of room, 45,000 miles and no problems. This is my 2nd RAV4. First one was a 1999,loved it too. When it came time for a new vehicle, I got the new car bug, couldn't wait to buy the newer model, 2007, much quieter ride and larger. Plenty of room for the kids.


Best Features

I have the limited and love my moon roof, stereo and all the extras. Love the side opening back hatch. Can't understand why some complain about it. Full size spare tire is a must. I don't even mind the spare on the back. Easy for me to get to if needed.


Worst Features

Noticed some bolts that are rusting in the wheel well. Very disappointed in that! Wind noise with the moon roof. Why can't they design something to make it easier to enjoy it and quite the noise? (Still love having it) Would like more options for interior colors, not a fan of all the light colors.

Bad Trans/Differential

Review

These SUVs develop an annoying differential whine at about 40 MPH and up. There is a Service Bulletin #TSB- 0192-10 that addresses the problem. Problem is it simply tries to cover up the problem by dampening the noise - hoping the owner will go away. Also the engine has to be pulled to simply replace a water pump. The Service manual also states that the engine needs to be removed for spark plug replacement. It could really get expensive to own this vehicle for the long term.


Worst Features

Fix the trans/differential problems.
