RAV4 BASE V6
By Bill on

Vehicle

2011 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Nice car except for the road noise and slight transaxle whine at lower speeds between 20 to 40 mph. I didn't noticed the sounds till after driving it for a day. The sounds are not deafening buy any means but are more annoying than anything. I suggest you test drive one more than once when making your decision. The V6 is plenty powerful but does have a very slight hesitation when the car is cold. After doing some research I found the transaxle noise apparently has never been properly addressed since 07. I may take it back to the dealer to have it looked at but I'm sure they'll tell it's normal for this type of vehicle.

Favorite Features

Powerful V6, fun to drive. Roomy, plenty of storage compartments,tight feel. Toyota reliability?

Suggested Improvements

Transaxle whine and road noise.
