Catastrophic Engine Failure/vvt oil leak
By Deb on
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.
Suggested Improvements
Common sense when this is a known issue and the company looks the other way. The whole thing could be avoided by a Technical Service Bulletin like they did on the Avolon.
