rav4 at 85,000 miles
By Corey on


2005 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I have had my Rav4 since 2006 and did not have to many issues at the time. At about 75,000 miles the alternator went out and is the biggest pain to get fixed due to the connector being a special piece from the rest. Since I got the car in 2006 it had a knocking noise in the engine that no one can seem to figure out. The gas has a severe hesitation and should probably be on a recall. It takes about 2-3 seconds from the time you step on the gas till the car preforms. Once it kicks in, it jerks very badly. Very easy to drive, almost like a go kart.

Worst Features

More room! More comfortable seats, Hesitation fixed.

I noticed your review of the Rav 4's acceleration issue. I have the same issue, what did you do to solve the issue?
