A Rav4 Can't Start
By ToyotaNoMore on
2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
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.
Ride, size, flexible space design, relatively quiet for its class.
Quality, quality, quality (Toyota started to make the same mistakes as GM now that they are the #1 in the world...)
