Steering shaft problem
By Rav in NC on
2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
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.
good size small suv
Fix MAJOR defects - steering. Minor - improve seat comfort.
