Problems with brakes and rattles
By Unhappy Owner on


2008 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


This is the first Toyota I have ever owned and will probably be the last. I have only had it for 2 months and I have lots of complaints. There are a lot of rattles coming from the dash and when I took it in of course they said they were not out of the ordinary. But, a bigger more serious problem is that the car has shut down on me twice while waiting at a red light. I have had to take the car in 4 times and they have put it on the computer and have not been able to duplicate the problem. They told me it's the traction sensor and that I am putting extreme pressure on the brakes which is causing the computer to think I am stopping suddenly and shutting down the engine. Is that nuts?

Best Features

Spacious, comfortable, nice ride, peppy

Worst Features

Fix the traction control system and make the ABS brakes not so sensitive that the car shuts down.
