Disturbing chirping noise
By rwallace7 on


2005 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


All that I can say is that I love the performance of my 2005 RAV4 except for the disturbing "chirping" noise that consistently occurs when going over mild bumps in the road. It is very annoying and the dealership cannot resolve the problem after making 5 service appointments. The noise seems to be coming from where the lower part of the windshield meets the cal panel. I'm not sure I spelled that correctly. Anyway, this problem ruins the entire fun of driving this vehicle. Sorry, I can't recommend a RAV4 to anyone. ... disappointed buyer.

Best Features

Plenty acceleration, comfortable seating, plenty of headroom, feels safe, good brakes.

Worst Features

Fix the squeaks/chirps from the back part of the dash. Poor attention to detail.
