Disappointed in Rav4 dependability
By Kerry Ross Boren on


2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I have owned several other Toyotas and I liked them for their dependability. I purchased a 2007 Rav4 for that reason and have been greatly disappointed. The brakes went out at 17,000 miles; an oil hose broke at 23,000; the tires wore out at 20,000 and had to be replaced; the paint job is chipping; the exterior is made of fiberglass and is easily damaged; the power steering column is failing and will have to be replaced at 23,000 miles. What a disappointment. Toyota fails to warranty any of these defects or make a recall for potentially dangerous ones. I have had this vehicle a little more than two years and it has proved to be an expensive liability. I will not purchase another Toyota.

Best Features

Drive-ability; style; comfort.

Worst Features

Better paint job (paint chips easily); notification of defects and replacement under warranty; recall on dangerous defects; better body (fiberglass is subject to damage).
