No recall but beware
By Ricky on


2009 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


My wife was picking up son from school in this vehicle and car accelerated with her foot on the brake. Took car to dealer and was told it was from Japan and no problems had been reported and no recalls we in effect. They did mash brake to try and duplicate problem but refused to replace anything. My wife and daughter get carsick so I have to ride in back seats when we travel as a family. Front seats are comfortable but rear is stiff and hard to adjust. We have bought 3 new Toyotas in our lifetime but this was our last. My wife was mad and scared after her experience so we traded for a Chevy the next weekend.

Best Features

Lots of engine power for a 4 cyl. We averaged 27 mpg. Lots of storage in rear compartments because of outside spare tire.

Worst Features

Make safety number 1. Make back seats a little higher and softer. Put real carpet in. I don't know what that stuff is but its hard to vacuum.
