Toyota Rav4 2007 Vehicle Speed Control Cruise Control Review #10206957

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on May 25, 2007.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CRUISE CONTROL . when using the cruise control (with the automatic transmission) the vehicle will shift rapidly between 2nd and 3rd gears when climbing small inclines and even sometimes on flat ground. this action starts when the transmission downshifts to maintain current speed. this was first noted when the vehicle had just over 8,000 miles. it now has over 17,000 and the problem still exists. it has been in to the dealership twice for repairs. the first time i was told there was no problem. the second time i was told it was a computer problem and could not be repaired at this time. i was advised by the servicing dealer that in order to make a repair toyota would have to create a computer program for the technicians to install. after talking with toyota i have been told this is not a problem but a "characteristic" of the vehicle and no efforts were being made for any type of repair. this condition makes for an unstable and dangerous driving condition when the cruise is utilized because you do not know how the vehicle will react during the drive. currently i am aware of 12 case numbers that have been created with the toyota customer support center addressing this situation. some of these cases even involve 2006 models. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 8100 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 01, 2007.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i bought my 2007 rav4 in november 2006 and took the car back to the dealer after a couple of months because of this humming/whistling/whining noise that others have complained. however, my humming noise is intermittent which makes it hard to find, and it seems to be more prevalent in the warmer months, not the colder months. i asked my mechanic about it, but he couldn't recreate the noise the day my car was in the shop. however, i intend to take it back there if i'm ever driving it in the area and the noise crops up again. to me it sounded like some kind of vapor pressure noise and i was initially thinking that it might be coming from my gas tank when vapor pressure built up if my tank was low on gas. but, that wasn't the case either. it will happen whether i have a full tank or almost empty tank...just not consistently. it is very annoying and i hope others write in to complain about it as well. *tr.Toyota Rav4 2007 problem was reported in VIENNA, VA.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2006.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i am also experiencing a consistent problem with my 2007 toyota rav4 with a lag in acceleration. i notice it the most when slowing down to about 10 mph to make a turn. as i come out of the turn and press the accelerator, the car does nothing for a couple of seconds. then the engine revs up and finally lurches forward. i started noticing this problem just a couple of days after purchasing my vehicle. it is very annoying and totally screws with the gas mileage. it's also one of the reasons why i hate automatic engines and wished that toyota offered these vehicles with manual transmissions. the "automatic" transmission isn't all that automatic and seems to take some time to catch up with how you're driving and what you need the car to do. *tr.Toyota Rav4 2007 problem was reported in VIENNA, VA.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Aug 15, 2007.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i own a 2007 toyota rav4 limited 4wd v6 and the transmission does not shift correctly at low speeds. a typical example of the problem is seen after slowing down to make a turn onto another street. the transmission does not shift out of overdrive, so when attempting to accelerate, the engine speed increases and the vehicle does not move. the computer then realizes that the car is trying to accelerate and "slams" into gear. this condition also occurs in traffic and making lane changes is very dangerous at low speeds. i have complained to toyota's technical service hotline and had the lead service technician at my local dealer ride with me to see the problem i have been experiencing. i have been told that the car is "within normal operating parameters", but after looking at several web sites, i have seen that this a worldwide issue with every camry, sienna, avalon, rav4 and tundra built in the past several model years. the local service tech told me that in his 28 years of repairing toyota vehicles, he has never seen problems like this and the cars are being designed in such a way that a mechanic cannot fix the car. i complained about this problem within the first 5000 miles of ownership, and after 18 months, there still isn't a fix or admission from toyota that there is a problem that needs to be addressed with the rav4, although they have released tcm updates for some camry and avalon vehicles to correct this very issue. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 20 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 01, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . after a dangerous surge-at-stop problem, we took our 2007 rav4 to our dealer yesterday, but so far they claim they can't find anything wrong. we told the dealer that we don't want the car back until they fix this life-threatening condition. yesterday was actually the third time that this happened, and each time the problem was more intense than the prior incident. the first time it happened, around three weeks ago, my husband wasn't sure if he had accidentally hit the accelerator, so he ignored it. the second time it happened, five days ago, he was more aware, and knew where his foot was placed, and knew for sure that this was an engine surge entirely unrelated to anything he was doing. it was only because he had his foot placed firmly on the brake that he was able to control the rav4 and prevent it surging past the red light. yesterday was the worst incident, since the surge happened, again at a red light, with cars passing in front of our rav4 (we were first in line) and when my husband jammed his foot harder on the brake, the engine surged even harder, and louder, and he had to really force the brake pedal down. if our daughter had been driving the rav4 there is no doubt in our minds that she would have gone right into the intersection, and either broadsided a vehicle, or been broadsided herself, with catastrophic results. this seems like the kind of life-threatening condition that nhtsa should really focus on, and that toyota should want to immediately fix, before several people get killed. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 28000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on June 17, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . at low rpm the accelerator and/or the transmission has a noticeable lag. this occurs approx 50 % of the time. several times it has put me into a dangerous situation when trying to blend into traffic. most recently i was taking my son to college and was almost hit by a truck on the penn turnpike. i have brought it in twice to the dealer only to be told that a road test showed "normal operation of the accelerator". i recently did a web search and found that toyota has stopped selling rav 4 with v6 engines in australia for just this problem. in june , while also driving my son to college i had the air conditioner on for about 4 hours of a 11 hour drive. the driver side floor, and to a lesser extent the passenger side floor, flooded. upon my arrival i dried it out the best i could using hotel towels. a musty smell lasted about a day or two then subsided. driving back home several days later it rained for most of the trip and again the car flooded . i brought it to the dealer since it was under warranty. they told me that weep vents under the vehicle for the air conditioner and moon roof were clogged thereby directing the water into the vehicle. the cleaned it up as best they could but that the musty smell was stronger now. to get rid of that would require pulling the seats and rugs to properly clean the vehicle and that would cost approx $250. i opted not to do that and drove for the next week with the air conditioner on to dehumidify the car. i checked to owners manual and found no mention of cleaning these weep holes/vents, and it is not part of the dealers maintenance policy to clean them. the owners manual did mention that if the floor was to get wet then there was a safety issue with the side airbag and curtain shield airbag activating correctly (page 379 of owners manual). water may also get into audio components or other electrical components above or under the floor carpet and cause malfunction and it may cause body corrosion. *tr .Mileage was 11491 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 05, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . while using the cruise control it has a tendency to accelerate rapidly and sometimes past the set speed when using "resume." hitting the brakes or turning off cruise control has always stopped it. this has happened many times over the last three years. usually the car is going over 60 mph when this happens. recently the car has accelerated once when not using the cruise control. when hitting the brakes the acceleration stopped. this has happened only once. i have never taken it in because it will be hard to trace and the warranty is out. without changing out all of the components one could never be sure the problem was corrected. i noted that you have now gone down to 2009 rav's. i believe that there could be a problem with earlier years too. *tr.Mileage was 50000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Nov 21, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . i bought the brand new 2007 rav4 limited v6 from chicago grossinger toyota 2 and 1/2 years ago. there was some boiling water noise coming out from the engine at around 28k miles. i took the rav4 to the cgt dealer for repair since it was still under the warranty. the customer service rep. told me that the reason why the engine had some boiling water noise because the camshaft was bended. he lied! he didn't even tell me that the oil hose was the cause of the damage. the noise problem was fixed (hopefully) but i don't know if the actual problem is still going or not because i found there were a lot of complaints about the same problem that i had online. most complaints said that the problem was because the oil pipe was made with half rubber/metal. the rubber part will soon be cracked due to the weather or something. i called the cgt customer rep to verify this problem and then he told me that my car might have that problem and he was aware of that so he told me that they had switched oil pipe to metal. he lied again! i checked it and the oil pipe is still made with half rubber and metal. he seems like covering something. i believe this problem has had been existing for a long time but toyota never do anything about it. this is a very serious issue. toyota has to be liable of the driver and passengers safety if their products are defective. *tr.Mileage was 28135 miles.

Toyota Rav4 2007 Engine And Engine Cooling Review #10308493

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2008.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . we bought our toyota, a new 2007/4430c rav4 (5-door 4x2 suv), on 9/7/07, and have noticed several problems in the operation of this vehicle. our rav4 currently has around 24,000 miles on it, and the problems have neither increased nor decreased in frequency. because these problems are intermittent, our dealer, dunning toyota of ann arbor, michigan, was unable to replicate what we experience. however, we believe that documenting this situation is important as problems¿some of which sound similar to what we have experienced¿are currently surfacing on other toyota vehicles. problems we have experienced ever since we have had the vehicle include: (1) intermittent engine surges. these occur when accelerating, braking, or simply coasting. the rpm needle visibly fluctuates, and passengers can feel the surging and ¿choking¿ of the engine. (2) the gas pedal sometimes does not smoothly engage, and the car ¿jumps¿ ahead when the pedal seems to finally engage. (3) occasionally the car does not seem to slow when the brake is applied. in the winter of 2008, i was traveling at a low speed (beginning to accelerate from a stop) on slick pavement when the car in front of me unexpectedly stopped in the middle of an intersection. i immediately applied the brake but the car did not seem to slow down. the resulting collision resulted in $615.63 in damage to our vehicle. i do not know the exact date of the accident. the police were notified but no tickets were issued. i just put an arbitrary month and date below so i could continue to the next page of this report. *tr .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMZD33V975.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Feb 01, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have an automatic, 6-cylinder 2007 toyota rav4 limited awd, that suffers from throttle/transmission lag of 1-2 seconds. i experience it most commonly when merging into traffic or changing lanes, when i depress the accelerator to speed up, there is an uncomfortably long delay before the transmission changes gears. the result is i am left hanging out in a lane with no power or speed. when the transmission or throttle finally kicks in, the car lurches violently, almost causing me to lose control. i and many owners have complained but have been told that this is normal operation. by the way, i also own a 2008 honda accord automatic and have never experienced anything like this in the honda. i would like this to be looked at and fixed. *tr.Mileage was 24000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . i have a 2007 toyota rav4 4wd v6 limited that had a defectively designed steering shaft. in early 2009, i began to notice a loud "clunk" when my vehicle turned slowly (fwd or back from a stop) or when i entered or exited my driveway. quick research revealed others with this condition on 2006 and 2007 rav4s, it was likely a defective steering shaft..improperly engineered at the joint, and it was wearing/loosening. toyota had apparently issued a t-sb-0318-08 to replace the shaft when owners complained. i took my rav4 in for service to check, and it was confirmed that the steering shaft needed to be replaced. however, my mileage exceeded the 36,000 mile warranty, and despite numerous diplomatic attempts on my part, toyota denied coverage on the basis of mileage, despite my argument of a safety defect. i argued that this loosening/defective steering shaft could break and cause a loss of steering control at highway speeds. i was ignored numerous times through regional and national toyota "customer service" channels. my local dealer was friendly, buy unable to convince toyota to help. i finally decided to have the steering column repaired at my expense, fearing for the safety of my steering, and toyota could not assure me that the steering was safe without the repair (they refused to comment). i told them i would be reporting this to the nhtsb, and they did not seem to care. i spent over $500 to replace a defectively designed steering shaft, and i hope others with this issue are reporting this to hold toyota accountable for potential safety defects. *tr.Mileage was 50000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Sept 10, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . this is a possible expansion of the present toyota "sudden acceleration" investigation. it involves one momentary incident of uncommanded acceleration on a 2007 toyota rav4 vehicle in sept. 2009. it has not recurred nor was it reported to toyota nor the nhtsa. while traveling on an open highway, with the vehicle under cruise control, i attempted to resume my normal cruising speed after an apparently successful "brake shutdown" of the system. on applying the "resume speed command", the engine went to an apparent full throttle position with the transmission downshifting into "passing gear". this continued for a short time, estimated to be less than 2 seconds, followed by a sharp deceleration and a second full acceleration (again of a momentary length of time). after the second incident, the vehicle resumed normal operation with continued cruise control. at no time did i apply manual brakes or shift out of "drive". the incident has never repeated. the report is strictly to inform you that the apparent problem under investigation should not be limited to 2009 model year toyota's but should go back further into their fleet with "electronic throttle control". *tr.Mileage was 16000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on May 15, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i was turning into a driveway with my foot on the brake when my 2007 rav4 suddenly began to accelerate. the rpm's were over 6000. i took my vehicle into the dealer that day and they performed a diagnostic check but told me they found nothing wrong. i asked what i could do or who i could speak to and they said there nothing unless the vehicle was recalled. this incident happened in may 2009 and when i had the vehicle in just recently for normal maintenance i again was told there was nothing i could do since it is not a part of the recall. why isn't it? must someone in my family die before someone will make it a part of the recall list? i am taking my vehicle in for a safety check next week. *tr.Mileage was 25000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 22, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . after running errands, my wife and i were returning home friday afternoon january 22, 2010 in my 2007 toyota rav4 (v6 engine - 30,815 miles on the odometer) when we experienced sudden acceleration while driving in our subdivision. i was traveling at a speed of 20-22 miles per hour when i applied the brake with no response and the vehicle gathered speed (estimated 35 mph) in spite of my efforts to brake hard. as the residential street was to end at a "t" within about 100 yards and there was a car ahead of me, i had to use any means possible to stop my runaway vehicle or a collision was sure to follow. only after shifting, while continuing to brake, through "park", "reverse", to "neutral" to the unbelievable roaring sound of the racing engine did the vehicle finally stop and a collision was avoided by a few car lengths. i had never experienced this before, and was especially surprised in that i had just had my 30,000 mile maintenance performed at my toyota dealership on december 18, 2009. badly shaken, my wife and i drove the three blocks to our house and i immediately called my toyota dealership for help. i was told that, as my vehicle was not on the recall list, there was nothing he could do for me and he told me to call the toyota customer care experience center. so i hung up the phone and then called toyota as instructed. when finally getting through, i related my experience and was told that "toyota takes this very seriously" and that my information would be passed along immediately. i was assigned a case number and was told that i would hear back from a case worker on monday, january 25. i did get a call back on monday, but not from a case worker, but from the same individual i had talked to on friday. i was told that my issue was no longer a priority since my vehicle was not on the recall list and i should call my dealership and get my car inspected at my expense. i instead left my car parked in my driveway, afraid to chance an accident. *tr.Mileage was 30815 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on May 24, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . about 8 or 9 months ago, i was doing maybe 45 miles per hour when all of a sudden the rpms went wild, the engine howled, and my 2007 toyota rav4 limited sped off as if someone had dumped a boulder on the accelerator pedal. my heart was in my throat as i tried to stop the car. pressing the brake hard didn't do it. i then stuck my foot underneath the accelerator pedal and pushed up with the toe of my shoe a few times. that worked and subsequently i could depress the brake and the car responded normally. i assumed at the time that maybe the driver's-side floor mat had somehow crept up and impeded the free operation of the pedal, a theory that toyota headquarters also seemed to find plausible (though not for the rav4, apparently). so i threw out the mat and didn't replace it with anything. we have dirty carpeting now, but we are alive. of course, in recent weeks, the world has learned that millions of toyotas are potentially afflicted with a sticky accelerator pedal. two weeks ago, we drove our car to the dealer, downeast toyota in brewer, maine, when it was time for its 60,000-mile service anyway, and we insisted that the accelerator be replaced. we discovered later that they hadn't done so, even though we advised them clearly that we?d had a potentially life-threatening incident involving the accelerator. the reason they will not replace the accelerator, they told my wife, is because toyota believes that the 2007 rav4 has no accelerator problems. in other words, our car is not part of the recall, so we're out of luck no matter what i've personally experienced. *tr .Mileage was 53000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Dec 27, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . my fiance drives a 2007 toyota rav4. this vehicle is currently not within the scope of the toyota acceleration pedal recall. in december, i was driving her car (she was in the passenger seat), from massachusetts back to our home in connecticut. as i merged onto rt 128 in ma, i had to accelerate quickly to get onto the highway. after safely merging onto the highway, i let off the gas pedal as i always do, however noticed the pedal did not release and was stuck down to the floor. my first reaction was to pump the brake, however, that only slowed us down temporarily. i then tried kicking at the gas pedal to see if i could get it to release, however, that also did not work. i then tried pulling the gas pedal up with my hand and it would not budge. finally, after continuing to pump the brake to slow down, the gas pedal released on its own. i would estimate that it was stuck for 20 seconds. unfortunately, i did not report the incident right away, however, i called toyota the day i found out of their recall. this past weekend, i brought the vehicle in for a courtesy inspection, however, toyota service team said there were no issues. i have called the toyota hotline multiple times and was only able to get through to someone once. i reported the incident and the toyota rep on the phone said they would report the incident up the chain... have not heard back from them. i contacted the better business bureau, however, have not made any progress there. my fiance drives the car daily, but we can't trust that this will never happen again. our only option is to trade-in the vehicle, and we may do so soon, however, this car should not be resold in the market. i am very doubtful that toyota has solutioned the 'real' issue. *tr.Mileage was 43000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2008.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i own a 2007 rav4. in fall 2008, my husband and i pulled up to a red light behind a pickup truck and stopped the vehicle. my husband had his foot on the brake but, just as he stopped, the car suddenly accelerated. even though he immediately put both feet on the brake, we ended up hitting the truck in front of us. the accident caused about $1,500 damage to the front end of our car. the truck in front sustained no visible damage, and the driver said don't worry about it and we did not file a police report. after the accident, the vehicle was thoroughly inspected by dowling toyota of litchfield ct. they did not find anything mechanically or electronically wrong with the car that would cause the unexpected and unstoppable acceleration. they did find some acorns under the hood, and given the lack of any other identifiable cause, they suggested that the sudden acceleration might have been due to the ingestion of a nut into the engine which held the accelerator open. at the time i reluctantly accepted this explanation because our accident was an isolated incident. however, in light of recent events concerning toyota vehicles, i can¿t help but wonder if our experience with our rav4 was part of a larger problem. my experience with our 2007 vehicle was eerily similar to those of the affected models that have been recalled. i am hearing on the news that it has taken several years for toyota to acknowledge the accelerator problem, and i can¿t help but wonder if our accident was related to a similar problem. please add my vehicle to the list of consumer complaints about accidents involving sudden acceleration. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . the accelerator stuck and raced while driving into newport nh in a line of traffic. i was fortunate that there was an empty parking lot to turn into or i would have hit the car in front of me. the car is a toyota rav 4 bought new in june of 2007 and this was the first time this happened, and it was before the news of the toyota problems surfacing.. since then it has repeated this 8 times through april of 2010, completely randomly. it has been to two nh dealerships (about 20 hours of inspections/ diagnoses) and they have not been able to replicate the problem. in fact toyota has told me that there is nothing further they can do and if the car is indeed dangerous or an accident waiting to happen that is my problem. at this point i am not sure they believe me but i can assure you that the defect is very real and the last time it occurred on april 5 there were two people in the car who saw it firsthand as it happened twice that day. additionally i don't know what to do with the car as i can't sell it with this kind of defect and my wife will no longer drive it. loaning the car to anyone else becomes a liability and driving with young children or elderly folks is out of the question. frankly i have been highly disappointed in toyota's response which has been slow or non responsive until recently when they informed me that everything is working properly and that arbitration is my only recourse. the car has 22000 and is still under warranty. *tr.Mileage was 21500 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 31, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . last night, my rav4 battery died due presumably to the rear door light getting accidentally turned on. upon jump starting the car, everything seemed fine. i drove it home without incident. then, this morning, the battery was not quite up high enough to start the car, so i jump started it again. it started, but a few hundred feet away, i lost power steering and power brake assist. it required every ounce of force i could muster to turn the vehicle around and get it back to my house. thankfully, this happened on city streets near my house and not on the highway last night or the chp would have been scraping me off a bridge post. the rav4 cannot realistically be steered by an average person without the power steering assist because of the gearing ratio, making this a very serious design defect. if a vehicle cannot safely operate, the vehicle should not operate. the problem is that, because the battery plays an integral role in power smoothing, and because the power steering and power brake pumps are electrically operated, a low battery can result in failure of the power steering and brake pumps while the engine is still functional. this can easily result in an uncontrollable vehicle barreling down the highway at 80 mph. i believe that fixing this problem requires a fundamental redesign of the electrically operated pumps to add additional capacitors so that the battery is not playing such a crucial role in smoothing out the pulsating dc from the alternator along with the addition of sensor hardware to detect a low battery condition and activate an indicator light until the vehicle is safe to drive. ideally, the steering gearbox should also be redesigned with a lower gear ratio so that it does not become undriveable. without these fixes, the 2007 rav4 is fundamentally unsafe. this design flaw probably also affects most other late models of toyota. *tr.Mileage was 22300 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Nov 26, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . i recently replace both intermediate steering wheel shaft in my 2007 toyota rav4 due to excessive clicking noise and disturbing feedback on steering wheel. car has 49k miles on it, notice the issue around 45k miles but unfortunately a local mechanic misdiagnoised the problem as a tie rod issue. as the noise and steering wheel feedback became more serious, i went to dealer for evaluation. given the dangers around loss of steering wheel and potential for serious crash, i believe this wear and team on the steering shaft is way to premature at this age. i have never had steering wheel defect in over 8 cars i have owned in the past 30 years especially given that the car is not even 4 years old. part replaced included both steering wheel shaft and assembly at toyota dealer with new part. *tr.Mileage was 45000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Dec 31, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . this is a follow-up to complaint number 10322423 i filed on march 26, 2010. at 37,109 miles my 2007 toyota rav4 had a binding and thumping noise in the steering column. i took the vehicle into the dealership where it was purchased and was informed the intermediate steering shaft needed to be replaced, but it was not a safety issue. at 46,781 miles i took my vehicle in for an oil change at my local automotive repair facility (not a toyota dealer). they recommended i have toyota look at the vehicle since the power steering rack and pinion was bad. i took the rav4 to a different toyota dealer in the area. they confirmed the power steering rack and pinion needed to be replaced. i asked them to replace the intermediate shaft while they were working on the vehicle¿s steering system. a few days prior to the rack and pinion being replaced, the car felt like it had no power steering and it was difficult to turn the steering wheel. the power steering rack and pinion was replaced at 48,555. the second toyota dealership informed me the intermediate shaft did not have to be replaced because the binding and thumping noise was being caused by the power steering rack and pinion. i do not have the binding and thumping noise in the steering since the power steering rack and pinion was replaced. toyota has issued two technical service bulletins (tsbs) for the binding and thumping noise in the steering column ¿ replacement of the intermediate steering shafts. the problem i had with the binding and thumping in the steering column was caused by the power steering rack and pinion, not the intermediate shafts. the power steering rack and pinion probably was bad at 37,109 miles. many 2006-2008 rav4s have reported problems with the steering columns. does toyota really know what¿s causing the steering column problems on the 2006-2008 rav4s? it¿s very disappointing toyota and the nhtsa does not consider a steering problem a serious enough problem for a recall. *tr .Mileage was 46781 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . on or about 9/01/11, i began to notice a popping/clunking sound when turning my car left or right, when parking and when turning into or backing out of my driveway (approx 5mph). this clunking sound was occurring without turning the steering wheel all the way to either side and when turning the steering wheel left or right with the car running at a complete stop. on 10/27/11, i took my car to my toyota dealership in winston salem, nc and was told the steering shaft needed to be replaced and the car would need a 4 wheel alignment as a result of the replacement. on 11/01/11, i had this service done at my toyota dealership (replaced steering shaft assembly, item #45260-42090, and 4 wheel alignment.) i paid a total of $479.73 for this service. nhtsa service bulletin #st001-08, item #10024291, was issued 2/08/08 for the 2007 rav4 steering component. in searching mycarstats.com along with other sites on the internet, this is an extremely common issue and complaint. a repair cost of $479.73 is substantial, and since this is a known consumer complaint and a service bulletin was issued, i believe toyota should issue a recall on this steering shaft component for the 2007 rav4. *kb.Mileage was 130000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on May 20, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . several years ago i noticed a popping noise when the steering wheel was turned. i thought it was in the steering wheel because i frequently used the tilt and telescope features to let me use my work laptop while in the car. (i am a retired hospice nurse.) i just figured it was aging from overuse. however, last week i took the 2007 rav4 in to my tire dealer and asked them to check the alignment while they did some other work. the mechanic was sharp and told me that he had first thought the same thing about the steering wheel being the source of the noise, but investigated further and found it was the "intermediate shaft" of the steering system. he told me there was a technical service bulletin about it. i've looked up the tsb's and they are 0318-08 and st001-08, and they describe my car exactly. i have an appointment tomorrow-2-3-12-to have a local dealer look at it. the car has 69659 miles on it now, but only 49882 when i retired in may of '10 and it was maybe a year before that (at 33842 miles) that the noise started. this has certainly not been the car our '96 rav was. i call it my bad luck car for various reasons and it appears it still is. the tire mechanic said the repair was about $400. *kb.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMBD31V275.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Feb 16, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . a car pulled out of driveway and i touched the brake pedal and my engine increased acceleration when it should have slowed acceleration and i pushed my car into neutral and i pulled cruise control lever towards me and the engine slowed down-my car had been set to cruise at 52 mph. after the incident i shut the cruise control off as i was heading into town. i then pulled into big scoop(canton,il business) parking lot going less than 5 mph-a lady walked in front of my car and i touched the brake and again i experienced unwanted acceleration and again i was quick in shoving car into neutral preventing a serious injury. i went home and called fort toyota in pekin, il and i took car in feb, 17, 2012 at noon. they had their top mechanic check it out-he said he could find nothing wrong. they called toyota's headquarters and they told them it was a floormat issue. they told me that and i told them it had nothing to do with the floormats but rather after touching the brake pedal is when i received unwanted acceleration in both incidents. they asked me several questions about that and they gave me toyota's headquarters number and gave me a rental car to use. when i called their headquarters they said it was a floormat issue and that was their final statement on the matter. i told them it was a brake issue but they stuck to floormats as the cause and that is why i'm reporting this matter to you as i feel for the safety of all drivers; this issue needs to be resolved by any automaker with unwanted acceleration problems. a first step is to admit that they have the problem then good(safe) things will result. thank you for hearing me out. it is appreciated very much,[xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMZD33VX76.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 25, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . within 4000 miles of oil & filter change the oil pressure warning light comes on. there has been no evidence of leakage (drops on ground or build up on engine components) and no evidence of burning up oil (smoke or smell). online research reveals a toyota technical bulletin sb0094-11 entitled excessive oil consumption which details an acceptable oil usage level of 1 quart every 1200 miles. this may have been acceptable in a car built in 1940, but it is not acceptable in a car designed to go 5000 miles between oil changes. excessive oil consumption can lead to excessive engine heat and wear causing failure at high speed with the potential for catastrophic failure. as toyota is aware of this issue yet not doing enough to remedy it, i am reporting it here to hopefully be investigated. *js.Mileage was 71000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 02, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VISIBILITY/WIPER . the driver's side sunshade no longer functions properly in my 2007 toyota rav-4. the shade does not stay up flat against the roof of the car, nor will it remain in place when pushed forward against the windshield, instead, it just hangs somewhere in between, getting in the driver's face and posing a serious visibility problem. it won't even stay in place to block the sun properly - the purpose it was designed for. also, whenever getting into or out of the vehicle, the driver needs to be careful to avoid having the sunshade hit him in the face or head. i am especially worried about having the "knife edge" of the shade hanging at eye level in the event of an accident. it will almost certainly cause injury to the driver. these sunshades were very poorly designed. after doing some research on the internet, i am finding that this is a relatively common problem in several toyota vehicles from the early to mid 2000's. in all of the cars i have ever owned (a few of which unfortunately turned out to truly awful and unreliable cars), and in all of the other cars i have ever driven, i have never seen another vehicle with this dangerous and annoying problem. *tt.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 04, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i was driving the rav4 in april 2011 and again on september 14, 2012 when the same incident occurred.the first time there was no warning, the battery light did not come on, first the radio quit playing and then the car went dead as i was moving in traffic. needless to say it was very stressful being struck in traffic. thanks to some kind ladies, the car was pushed out of the way. we suspected it was a battery malfunction, although the battery was only 8 months old. we took the battery to place of purchase and they tried to charge it, it would not charge so they replaced the battery for free because it was still under warranty. on friday, september 14 i was driving in heavy traffic and this time the battery light came on for a few minutes, then the radio went out and the car died. this was extremely stressful as traffic was speeding behind me and i was afraid i would get rear ended. once again there were two females that helped me push the car out of traffic. once again the battery was replaced as it was still under warranty, however this time the battery light will not go out. after doing some investigating, i believe the problem stems from the rav 4 's electrical steering and the fact that it pulls to much power. there is not reason why the car should just quit while your driving in traffic. it is hard to trust the vehicle when it suddenly stops in traffic and will not start again. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 72000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Aug 29, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . for 2 years prior to taking the car to toyota for repair, i was hearing a clicking noise when i turned the steering wheel back and forth, normally when i began using the car early in the morning. i took the car to the toyota dealer to find the problem, expecting it to be a slight adjustment. i was told that the steering shaft was broken along with a yoke assembly that needed to be replaced. i was alarmed that i had been driving a car with a broken steering shaft for so long. toyota replaced the broken parts and charged me $600. i thought toyota should cover the cost as a warranty item but they refused. it seems to me that a steering defect should be taken care of via a safety recall. had the shaft broken or become more damaged then a high speed accident could have occurred. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45980 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 01, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . at any speed, an audible "clunk" is present when steering wheel is turned right or left. furthermore, one can feel a vibration in the steering wheel that exactly matches the "clunk" sound. during low speeds after starting the vehicle the noise and vibration is prominent any time the steering wheel is turned. at higher speeds, the sound is less pronounced, but a vibration and feeling of "looseness" in the steering is prominent. since this vehicle is used as a family car with young children (and a pregnant woman) present, this noise/vibration combination is disturbing as we fear steering failure. i am not sure if this problem is related to toyota's technical service bulletin st001-08 which matches the description of my problem. however, it is apparent that toyota issued this tsb as a result of customer complaints and developed a procedure and replacement parts to cure such a problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 02, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . when you turn left or right a strange noise happening and you can feel some sort of bump or catch in the steering. there is a service bulletin out on this intermediate steering shaft. a new shaft is going to run $400.00 plus at least an hour of labor. this mean that it is going to cost each owner of this rav4 model at least $500.00. toyota has put a service bulletin out on this very problem. the bulletin # is tsb-0318-08 rev1. i am afraid that this will become a safety issue and i believe that there is some manufacturing defect or design problem at the basis of this problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 71832 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 26, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with AIR BAGS . took my 07 rav 4 sport in to dealership for airbag sensor recall on 10-26-12. this was accomplished. the airbag icon had been staying on constantly since 10-21-12. still on after recall work was done. told by service dept. what by now is a familiar story. the problem would not be pursued without a diagnostic test at $87.50 which would be applied to the cost of parts and labor. how generous is that? also told spiral cable most likely the problem. so unless i am missing something it works out to hand dealership a blank check or take your chances airbag may or may not deploy as designed. now if the recalled sensor wasn't designed to fail and it will be covered even if warranty has expired what's so different about a faulty spiral cable failing after warranty has expired? i am going to take a wild guess here and suggest toyota has someone tasked to read these complaints to stay informed of toyota owner sentiment. so this is for you! how many incidents with or without injuries or worse have to happen before toyota does the right thing and corrects the airbag issues and quits hiding behind the expired warranty excuse? toyota did not become a key player in the auto industry by behaving like this.what has changed? next step take it viral using all available media! *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45800 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 12, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . around the 12th of october 2012 i started to notice a sound when turning the steering wheel to the left. within a few days i could hear it when turning left or right at slower speeds. i took my car to my mechanic for an oil change and mentioned it. he said that it seemed to be the steering intermediate shaft. i contacted a toyota dealer to enquire about cost of part and repair. i was told that the part was around $400 and that it would take approximately 1.6 hours to repair at $80/hour. i contacted toyota headquarters and was told that even though there was a service bulletin out on this same problem, that there was not a recall and the car is not under warranty now. if i had not asked my mechanic to check the problem i very likely would of had an accident when the splines finally gave out. i have the old shaft now as i had my mechanic order the part from a toyota dealer (the price was just over $100) and it took him 1.7 hours to do the repair, so it cost me about $200 total. toyota said that if there were a recall i might be able to get some of my money back. does someone have to die before they have a recall on this. it would be stupid of them to wait until there is a death!! i've had 2 recalls taken care of and there are 2 more that will need to be done soon. did someone die to get them to recall for those problems. there was a recall announced yesterday on this very same problem with the prius 2004-2009. i have a 2007 toyota rav4...this is a bigger problem than they have acknowledged. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 72200 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Dec 18, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION . my vehicle recently had a recall for potential rust issues with the rear lower suspension arm. both my sway bar arms are now broken due to rust and toyota is charging me $500 to fix the issue. the service rep at the dealership told me "this is not a safety issue but the sway bars prevent the car from rolling over." this sounds like a major safety issue to me and also directly related to the recall issue. this is the 6th recall on my vehicle and i have submitted a request to toyota to fix this issue at no cost. considering toyota did not have a solution to the rear suspension recall and forced it's owners to drive with the problem for multiple months exposing us to potential danger, asking them to fix this problem at no cost is reasonable. my dealership even went as far as to tell me that if i wanted them to inspect the recall situation prior to a fix being available i would have to pay labor costs. last time i checked, the customer should not be responsible for paying labor costs due to a recall. i would appreciate that the sway bar arms on my rav4 are fixed at no cost. if rust causing "threads may wear, causing the arm to separate, which could result in the loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash" that resulted in my recall than it seems like the two problems are related as the parts are in similar areas of the undercarriage. thank you for your assistance. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 105531 miles.

(case # tai30110070) on jan 17, 2013 i was informed that kevin pilotte a toyota technical rep cleared the car for return to me. no repairs were made to the car to my knowledge. i was informed by anderson's service mgr that the pedal assembly could have been replaced but that this was not authorized by the rep. i was also told that i would be contacted directly at some point by toyota. prior to the 2011 recall, i experienced one similar incidence with the pedal but did not report it because i received the recall procedure which i thought took care of the problem. since i have experienced this problem twice since 2007, obviously it is an intermittent problem but an extremely serious one that can cause injury or loss of life. i will appreciate whatever nhtsa can do to influence toyota to make an appropriate repair. information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 26710 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on June 18, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with AIR BAGS . we brought our vehicle in to service recall notice for side curtain airbags. when returning home after service the airbag light went on. the toyota dealer tested it and said it was the main clockspring. i subsequently had the clockspring replaced at my expense and it lasted a number of months before the airbag light started coming on frequently. i then had the vehicle tested by three different mechanics (two toyota dealers) and they all said that the only indication they get when they test the system is the old, previously fixed clockspring failure indicator and all said that they have no idea why the airbag light is coming on. this is a serious safety concern as we don't know if our airbag system is working or not and whether or not it could go off anytime. it also makes it impossible to sell the car. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 119378 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on May 06, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . upon taking ownership of this pre-owned vehicle i noticed a clunking sound coming from the drivers side front of the vehicle, particularly while turning. i took the vehicle to my local dealership who ran a diagnostic and informed me that this problem was due to issues in the steering intermediate shaft and that it needed to be replaced. they indicated the "splines" were starting to wear and that delay in repair could see worsening of sound and potential issues with steering. yet they also informed me there was no danger. while perhaps that was the case i felt that a steering failure was an immediate danger and had the vehicle repaired immediately. price was approx. $420 for labor and parts. after researching this a bit i find that toyota has recalled a similar part on some of it's other vehicles, such as the prius. it concerns me that this part is not recalled on the rav 4 or any other toyota vehicle with the same problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 57025 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on July 30, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . driving down a freeway when a loud clunking sound came from the engine, had to pull over and had the car towed. and as it ends up the rav4, which had every single service on time and without problems, had somehow burned up all it's engine oil and caused thousands of dollars of damage to my engine. the service department at the toyota dealer refuse to explain how this could happen to a perfectly healthy car and refuse to acknowledge this exact problem in hundreds of other 2007 rav4's. in addition, they fail to take responsibility for this obvious fault of theirs and continue to put their "valued" customers in danger as this could have resulted in a serious accident. i am being told that the engine was left with only 1/2 quart of oil from the previous service which was 4 mos prior to this which caused the engine to be destroyed. i have no idea, and am being kept in the dark, about why the engine lost oil. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 116000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 11, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . i hear a clunk. pop or knock-type noise when turning the steering wheel left or right. according to toyota service bulletin t-sb-0318-08, a new intermediate shaft has been developed to address this condition, that is to remove and replace both steering and intermediate shafts (no. 1 and no. 2.). the tsb expressly states that the repair is covered only under the 3 year/ 36k milestoyota comprehensive warranty. many owners of the rav of this era have experienced this problem, and it often occurs when the vehicle is out of warranty. many owners have had to pay several hundred dollars to have it fixed. also, many owners have reported the sound getting worse over time if not fixed. ( this information is frequently stated in forums and blogs about this era rav 4). i believe this is a safety issue that will, at some point, result in negative steering effects, if not loss of steering. as such, toyota should be forced to initiate a recall campaign to fix this tsb problem under extended warranty. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 13975 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on May 21, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . at 44,000 miles my 2007 toyota rav4 developed a clunking sound in the steering system when turning. as time went on the frequency and severity of the situation only got worse. i found a tsb which appeared to deal with the identical symptoms that i was experiencing, t-sb-0318-08. i also discovered since my vehicle was out of warranty that i would have to pay for repairs myself. my vehicle, identified by vin, was manufactured at the tahara plant and was affected by the tsb. in my research i also discovered that there was a previous tsb and a different part that was being used to replace the defective one. this is clearly a serious safety issue that toyota must confront and address with a safety recall notice. obviously the part installed originally was defective. toyota subsequently a replacement part that in due course was also deemed to be defective so they developed a third part. the part in question is the intermediate steering shaft. as a responsible grandparent there is no way in the world that i was going to let this serious problem contribute to an accident possibly injuring my grandchild. the quote from the local toyota dealership was $1100 to do the repair and alignment (which the tsb says is unnecessary if the repair was done correctly). i had a certified toyota mechanic complete the repair for under $700. now i am waiting for toyota to do the right thing and identify this very serious issue as a safety recall so that all of the thousands of responsible rav4 owners who experience this problem can have it corrected. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 44000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on June 05, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . this model toyota has a record of stuck oil rings causing excessive oil consumption which leads to failure of engine and catalytic converter. see new york times oct 14,2011 and the hundreds of on line complaints about using one quart of oil every 1 k miles. in april of this year my dealer did a complete check with oil change, in june the oil was down one quart and in september i did another oil change with only two quarts of oil left in the pan when it takes 4-1/2 quarts. i took my rav 4 to the dealer(11-23-2013) i bought it from and without looking at it i was told the oil rings get stuck and i need an engine repair for $2,660 plus tax and most likely a new catalytic converter for $2,500. i had them check it out and i got a written document with the repair that is needed documented. this "needs" to be a recall item. if a car doing 70mph has an engine failure due to loss of oil then the person will loose steering and brake control leading to a serious accident and most likely death. toyota did two recalls on my car in april, door switch needed a drop of oil and rear suspension needed to be re-torqued. made a big deal out of what cost pennies to fix. now a $2,660 engine repair and we need to go to small claims court of class action suit or plead to you to help us get this a recall item. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 63000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Nov 25, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . my son was driving home from work when the car stopped performing properly. shaking and no acceleration. he had to reduce speed and wave people past him on a 2-lane road. i took the car to the mechanic, the next day with the same difficulty. drove with hazard lights on. my mechanic reported the car had less than 1 quart of oil, and the engine was blown. i felt that was not possible. never any oil in driveway. oil had been changed within last 4 months and 4000 miles. the car has less than 63000 miles and has been maintained. the check engine oil light never came on. it makes no sense. cost for new engine is $7,000. i did some research. google "toyota oil consumption issue". numerous reports of the exact same issue. toyota even has a service bulletin t-sb-0094-11 that describes this very issue for this very make and vin. only it isn't a recall, and unless you are a dealer service center you do not receive the bulletin. so unfortunately, the way toyota is handling this, you learn about this issue only after the car gives out. this is outrageous. my 18 year old daughter used this vehicle to drive to school every day! with my 16 and 13 year old sons as passengers! it is plain luck that the car didn't give out while she was driving them all in rush hour morning traffic. this engine defect is all well documented. it seems like toyota is ducking and dodging responsibility for a defect they acknowledged in their very own service bulletin? how is this possible? *updated 12/17/13.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 62729 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Jan 20, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . i have noticed multiple occasions since 01/20/13 that my rav4 has been low on oil. i have had it checked, and have checked it myself, and have found it to be so low it doesn't even register on the dipstick, and only after driving less than 1000 miles. each time this has happened i have had to add anywhere from 1-3 quarts of oil to get it to where it should be on the dipstick. there are no leaks under the vehicle, and there's no noticeable smoke coming from the exhaust. i have been advised by my mechanic that this is an ongoing problem with multiple years of rav4 vehicles. i am scared to continue driving, with having to constantly check the oil, but i have no choice as i don't have a second vehicle. i feel toyota has left me holding the bag for a defect they won't admit is their faulty equipment/engineering. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 78000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Nov 29, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . my 2007 toyota rav 4 experienced some heavy knocking on friday nov. 29th. i took it into kost tire and muffler in clark summit, pa to have then take a quick look at it. they said the engine was full of oil at the time. i drove it approximately 8.5 miles after leaving kost before deciding to have it towed to the toyota dealership in scranton on sunday. on monday morning toyota said the car arrived with no oil. how could this be? there was no oil in the kost parking lot, in my driveway or on the tow truck bed ( can be verified by all sources). if the car were to have spilt a full engine of oil there would have been some kind of evidence(burning smell, sight of lost oil, car smoking -but there was nothing). toyota has denied the warranty claim due to what they say is lack of engine lubrication. this is absolutely bogus. after reading some online blog i have seen a number of other customers who own 2007 rav4's who have had the same exact problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 98800 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 26, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . oil light flashed on then went off. stopped at a gas station to check oil, there was none in the tank and i had had an oil change less than 1,500 miles prior to this incident. i added 3 quarts of oil to my engine and not 3 weeks later, had to add 2 more quarts because it was empty again! upon further research as to why this keeps happening, i found that this is a common problem with rav4's model years 2006-2008, and that toyota is aware of the problem. however, even though they know this is a problem, they are stating that the oil consumption is within toyota's acceptable limits! how can that be? a car should not go through 3 quarts of oil in 3 weeks! also, toyota is stating that the only fix for this is to either replace the engine or do a complete engine rebuild to the tune of $5,000-$7,000!! for a car that has less than 80,000 miles on it! if they are aware of the issue, why do they continue to let it be ok? this is a major safety concern that should not be happening to vehicles this young. luckily it hasn't been for me yet, but for others it has, and toyota should do their part to fix a defect in their engine design. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 75500 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on Nov 23, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . this model toyota has a record of stuck oil rings causing excessive oil consumption which leads to failure of engine and catalytic converter. see new york times oct 14,2011 and the hundreds of on line complaints about using one quart of oil every 1 k miles. in november of last year my technician did a complete check with oil change, in jan this year the oil was down one quart and in feb. i did another oil change with only two quarts of oil left in the pan when it takes 4-1/2 quarts. i took my rav 4 to the dealer(4-23-2013) i bought it from and without looking at it i was told the oil rings get stuck and i need an engine repair for $3,000 plus tax. i had them check it out and i got a written document with the repair that is needed documented. this "needs" to be a recall item. if a car doing 70mph has an engine failure due to loss of oil then the person will loose steering and brake control leading to a serious accident and most likely death. toyota did two recalls on my car in april, door switch needed a drop of oil and rear suspension needed to be re-torqued. made a big deal out of what cost pennies to fix. now a $3,000 engine repair and we need to go to small claims court or class action suit or plead to you to help us get this a recall item. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 70000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2007 car safety problem was reported on June 17, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2007, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . within approximately 2 years of the purchase of our new 2007 toyota rav4 we noticed a "clunking" sound and feel in the steering at slow speed. the problem was reported to the dealer, gettle toyota of bradenton, florida, and was repaired under warranty. they referred to the parts replaced as intermediate steering shaft/ steering shaft assy. (the service writer seemed to know exactly what the problem was). the same apparent problem appeared again in approximately june of 2013 and is worse now in january 2014. it has become quite annoying and now both my wife and i wonder if this will become a safety concern, i.e. leading to a steering failure. our original decision to buy the rav4 was primarily based on a very high safety rating after we were involved in a serious injury crash which destroyed our previous vehicle. we are becoming more and more disappointed with toyota quality in general as our rav4 approaches only 75,000 miles. i would request the recall of this vehicle for manufacturer-sponsored repairs to follow the already historical tsb of 2008 for this same problem in '06 and '07 rav4s. thank you for your attention. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 18000 miles.
