Startup problems

2012 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I'm having problems where my new RAV4 V6 4x4 just won't start up. Eventually - it will start but Toyota doesn't seem to have any handle on this issue. I notices that a couple other reviewers have had the same problem.
I'm not willing to live with this problem.

We are having the same problem and have told the dealer and they just blow it off because it doesn't do it all the time. We have found if we are on a flat surface and push the vehicle a little back or forwards it will finally start but this is totally unacceptable for an expensive vehicle! It would not start again this morning--the 7th time in one year!
