Beware of the RAV4
By arobinson on


2007 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Problems: Water pump, head gasket blew because we did not replace water pump fast enough and engine has aluminum which warps in high temp. Transmission gasket replaced. Alternator replaced. Clicking in steering wheel. Luckily my brother-in-law is a mechanic saved us $1000's but we have still dumped about $3000 into fixing this car because I drove too much (ALL HWY driving) and nothing went wrong until after warranty expired. Glad I am not the only one with a LEMON RAV4, but sad at Toyota's lack of quality. 1st Toyota and probably last due to this money pit. At 109,000 miles and going to dump it and take my losses.

Best Features

comfortable seats, ease of seat reclining in the back

Worst Features

Craftsmanship, and if the stupid things broke (which obviously a lot are) fix them and be the quality company you claim to be.
