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


Bought this new in 2007. It has 36,000 on it now. At 26K had to replace all 4 tires. They are 17" tires ($$$) and the dealer wanted us to pay 800 dollars to get it inspected. I bought them at a tire place for half. They said it was normal on Rav 4's that the stock tire wears out by 25K miles. The 30K maintenance cost us almost 400 dollars and I'm not really sure why. I get carsick in it if I'm not driving, same thing with my wife. My kid gets carsick on long trips as well. At 36,000 miles the check engine light came on accompanied by a light that said VSC and the 4X4 light too. Took it in and had to replace the coil. Paid 109 dollars for diagnosis. Also hard to tell if 4WD is on or not.

Best Features

It is the right size, convenient for two kids. Decent leg room. Good power.

Worst Features

Stability control maybe to lessen the carsickness. Better tires too. Reassess the warranty and maintenance items... seems like too much for such little mileage.
