RAV4 problems
By TomT on


2004 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I purchased my RAV4 based on Toyota's
reputation for reliability and I'm
disappointed with the quality. This
week the check engine warning light
and vehicle control light came on
indicting problems. The car has a
squeal underneath at 15 to 35 mph. I
drove it on an improved dirt road and
since then have heard loud rattles
behind the instrument panel. The
visor clip is loose and of cheesy
build quality and seems ready to fall
off. The ignition switch is also
loose and seems cheesy. The wind
noise when the back windows are open
is very loud and sounds like a
helicopter taking off. The passenger
window rattles when halfway down. I'm
very dissatisfied.
