Vehicle2006 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI have enjoyed the vehicle for 4 years. We take it to the Eastern Sierras for trout fishing and can take the steep grades with ease with the V6. The only problem that I have encountered is the steering wheel clunking on slow turns. The steering knuckle was replaced under warranty at approximately 15,000 miles. Now at 29,000 miles it is clunking again on the replaced unit. There is definitely a design flaw by Toyota and they need to own up to it. I will be taking it in for servicing and demand a replacement even if it is over 36 months warranty time limit.
Best FeaturesI love the acceleration of the V6. Don't need a V8. Had a Yukon and a Tahoe. Gas mileage is great at 26 on the highway.
Worst FeaturesThe sound proofing could be improved from road noise and engine.

Note: Sierra is already plural. Should be "Eastern Sierra". Thanks for the heads up about the steering knuckle. I'll make sure our Toyota mechanic checks ours out before the warranty expires.Report it
