Toyota Rav4 2008 Seats Review #10240748

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2008.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SEATS . this is my effort to submit a comment on your regulations, not a complaint of an incident. i was directed to this form by lou molina at nhtsa. i am a driver who for health reasons wishes to sit erect. i am not fat, and of normal height (5'6"). this last weekend i purchased a rav4. the headrests intrude intolerably into my head space. in order to sit at my preferred angle and keep my back to the seatback, my head is tilted down so that i must raise my eyes to look over my eyeglasses, or my straight vision is directed to the center of the steering wheel. i trust that these headrests meet your standards. it is my belief that you have engineered this standard for an obese, fat-shouldered person with tight hamstrings, someone who prefers to drive reclined to accommodate his belly and is held away from the seatback by his own padding. my present approach to being able to drive this car is to turn the headrest backwards, and i am fully aware that this deprives me of the neck safety i would have had from an older design of headrest. i would suggest that the comments in section vii of rin 2127-ah09, "specifically, they maintained that smaller female occupants tend to utilize steeper seat back angles. according to these commenters, a backseat of 50 mm may cause significant intrusions into the space where these occupants typically place their heads, forcing their heads into an unnatural forward-tilting position" is descriptive of my situation. it is important for the nhtsa to consider minority as well as majority needs in drafting such regulations. and it is important to provide alternative solutions to drivers whose comfort and safety has been diminished by your decisions. thank you, melissa reading *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 80 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Oct 21, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . on 10/21/09 i was stopped at an intersection in my 2008 rav4 while waiting for two cars to go by. my foot was fully planted on the brake. suddenly the engine revved uncontrollably and the car lurched forward. i pressed as hard as i could on the brake. this happened twice. i barely managed to keep the car out of the intersection. there were no warning lights. i was able to drive home without another incident. the floor mats were firmly clipped into place causing no interference with the accelerator. i had the repair shop at my dealer check it over. they could not find any problem with it and no repairs were made. i wrote a letter to my dealer documenting my safety concerns. the dealer then brought a toyota field specialist in to look at it. he too was unable to find any problem. since then toyota has announced two recalls associated with floor mat interference and faulty gas pedals. i've found out that my rav4 was built in japan and, therefore, not subject to the faulty gas pedals. this leads me to believe that the problem is due to an electronic glitch most likely associated with the computerized electronic throttle system. i believe toyota needs to roll-out a "brake override system" to truly resolve this problem. fortunately, i have not had another "sudden acceleration" event since 10/21/09. *tr.Mileage was 34500 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2006.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i purchased a new toyota rav4 (2008 ls) in the summer of 2008. i quickly realized that there seemed to be a problem with acceleration. i reported it then and the first several times it went in for scheduled maintenance. the response has been the same - that's just what toyotas do. the problem - when accelerating from a stop when the car has been idling, the car hesitates. there is a second or 2 during which there is no power. then, the power kicks in and the car jumps forward, not because the pedal is sticking but because the car suddenly "catches up" with the gas pedal. the explanation given by two dealers is this: in the toyota, there is a delay between when the pedal is pressed down and when the car's computer sends the information to the carburetor, or whatever passes for it in new engines. that causes the sequence - press the gas pedal, hesitation, then surge. this is most dangerous when trying to merge into heavy, fast moving traffic. openings in the traffic are usually small but adequate if the car responds. however, when the car hesitates, then surges, the opening can be missed and the car and driver are at risk for a significant accident. the problem is also intermittent so that the driver can be caught off guard, even when experienced with the car. i'm filing this because i see that your department has gone past the sticking pedal to look at possible problems with the electronics and computer systems in the cars. so i thought this might be helpful. ps-i have been fortunate that the problem has not caused an accident. however, there have been situations where a little luck and a quick foot to the brake pedal was all that prevented one. psps-i will gladly provide the vin # but i do not have it available now. *tr.Toyota Rav4 2008 problem was reported in CORDOVA, TN.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Dec 03, 2009.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i have a 2008 toyota rav4. i had an incident in the fall of 2009 where, as i was braking and slowing down, my engine revved up without my touching the gas pedal, and i stepped on the brake and put my car in neutral. didn't understand what had just happened but thought it was maybe my fault somehow. in early dec. i pulled into a parking space, front end forward, and there was another parked car opposite my car, facing mine. as i was slowing down and braking, the engine revved and i had to slam my foot on the brake to avoid hitting the car in front of me. i called my dealership immediately from my cell phone, right there in my car, and told them what happened. they asked me if i was wearing "heels", did i step on the accelerator by mistake, did the floor mat get caught?...and i said no to all of that. i went in the next day to service, and they spent several hours looking at my car, checking things out. when they were finished, they said they "couldn't make my car do what i told them it did". could not find a problem. asked again about shoes, wrong pedal, etc. since then, i had one more experience with acceleration at the top of a hill where took my foot off the gas and the motor continued to accelerate. right about that time the news of the toyota problems was beginning. i called my dealership and asked why i had not received a letter about a recall. i was told that my toyota had been built in japan and therefore it does not have the accelerator problem and is not on the recall list. what do i do now?? *tr.Mileage was 17000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Aug 15, 2008.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i was attempting to pass a semi on an uphill in my new 2008 rav4 when the accelerator became stuck. i had floored the gas pedal since i was going uphill and passing, but when i eased my foot off the pedal remained pressed to the floor. i had entered a single lane construction zone and was accelerating rapidly. i stomped on the accelerator hoping to spring it loose and tried the brakes, to no avail. as i was reaching speeds well into the 90's and within seconds of plowing into the traffic ahead of me i reached down and grabbed the gas pedal and pulled up on it. it did come up then and i was able to slow the car down in time to avoid crashing. i was terrified and thought i would die. i took it to the dealer we had purchased it from and they insisted it was caused by my floor mat and that it was my fault since it was not a toyota floor mat. i told them there was nothing obstructing the pedal when i reached down for it, it was simply stuck. they continue to blame the floor mat, my car has not been put on the recall list and it scares me every day to drive it. i never, ever floor it and now know to put it in neutral should it happen again---although i have heard some people crashed because they could not get the car in neutral. i am very upset that toyota blameshifts and dodges the issue by blaming the mats and refuses to do anything about it. their recall hotline told me it is my problem since my car is not on the recall list. i did buy their mat after the incident, only to be told later that i should remove it since it could cause accelerator entrapment. my dealer still blames the whole problem on my non compliant mat even though they recalled their own mats, too. it is very disturbing to find out that this has been happening to so many others and going on for a long time. so many deaths and accidents, and i easily could have been one. we have bought 5 toyotas from this dealer and have had no support and have been treated rudely. *tr.Mileage was 5000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . my fiancee and i were driving, 2008 rav4/limited/v6/4wd. we were at a stop light. i was driving, i had my foot on the brake for about 30 seconds waiting for light to turn green. it was a busy intersection here in denver and there was a car in front of us. all of a sudden the accelerator took off and i could feel the car trying to move forward. luckily, i already had my foot on the brake and i pressed down even harder on the brake as i immediately put the car in neutral. when i put it in neutral the accelerator continued to rev higher than it was before. i slammed the gear shift into park and shut the car off. we were obviously shaken from this and just sat there for a minute as we realized what had just happened. my fiancee wanted to get out of the car and call a tow truck. i wanted to try and start the car again but leave it in park and test it out. i started the car without touching the brake and it did it again. every light on the dash board lit up like a christmas tree. we were in park so the car could not move but the rpm's were on the way to redlining and i turned off the car again. the lights around the speedometer had never lit up like that before. seriously every dummy light on the car was lit and flashing. we were completely scared at this point and we just turned on the emergency lights and just sat there in shock. we sat there for ten minutes at this busy intersection trying to figure out what to do. i decided to try it again and this time the car started normally. my fiancee was afraid to drive it but i assured her if it happened again i could just put it in neutral and we could pull over to the side of the road. we drove directly to the dealership. we explained what happened and they said the would check it out. they called later that day and said all the diagnostic tests were normal. they told me it must have been the floor mats. that is impossible since the floor mats weren't even touching accelerator. updated 05/12/10 *bf updated 07/16/10.*jb *tr.Mileage was 15250 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on May 01, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . my fiancee and i were driving, 2008 rav4/limited/v6/4wd. we were at a stop light. i was driving, i had my foot on the brake for about 30 seconds waiting for light to turn green. it was a busy intersection here in denver and there was a car in front of us. all of a sudden the accelerator took off and i could feel the car trying to move forward. luckily, i already had my foot on the brake and i pressed down even harder on the brake as i immediately put the car in neutral. when i put it in neutral the accelerator continued to rev higher than it was before. i slammed the gear shift into park and shut the car off. we were obviously shaken from this and just sat there for a minute as we realized what had just happened. my fiancee wanted to get out of the car and call a tow truck. i wanted to try and start the car again but leave it in park and test it out. i started the car without touching the brake and it did it again. every light on the dash board lit up like a christmas tree. we were in park so the car could not move but the rpm's were on the way to redlining and i turned off the car again. the lights around the speedometer had never lit up like that before. seriously every dummy light on the car was lit and flashing. we were completely scared at this point and we just turned on the emergency lights and just sat there in shock. we sat there for ten minutes at this busy intersection trying to figure out what to do. i decided to try it again and this time the car started normally. my fiancee was afraid to drive it but i assured her if it happened again i could just put it in neutral and we could pull over to the side of the road. we drove directly to the dealership. we explained what happened and they said the would check it out. they called later that day and said all the diagnostic tests were normal. they told me it must have been the floor mats. that is impossible since the floor mats weren't even touching accelerator. updated 05/12/10 *bf updated 07/16/10.*jb *tr.Mileage was 15250 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Aug 11, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . last night i experienced a sudden, unexpected increase in engine rpms while stopping and while stopped at a stop sign after my car had been driven approximately 1/4 mile on a cold engine (although the temp outside was in the 70s). the air conditioner may have been on in the car. i was just coming up to a stop at a stop sign when the engine suddenly began to roar and though i saw a car coming on the cross street, i couldn't understand why the car seemed to be hard to restrain from moving forward. i have an automatic 2008 rav4 v6 with about 15,000 miles, and i had my foot squarely on the brake. there is no floor mat as i removed that the first week of the news that mats could be a contributing cause to unintended acceleration. i am very familiar with the slight increase in rpms that happens when the air conditioning cycles, and this was several orders of magnitude beyond that. i immediately put the car in neutral and turned the ignition off. at that point, i smelled a very distinctive chemical smell, probably from the tires since the brake and the accelerator were both working at the same time. i started the car up again almost immediately and it was fine for the 10 minute drive home. the next morning i drove it to toyota and they ran a computer diagnostic on it and they said it showed nothing. they told me to "monitor the car and note the tachometer reading if it ever happens again." to be honest, i always thought that people made too much of this problem, but then i never expected it to happen to me. i am reluctant to drive the car now, so i want it noted that this model and year of rav4 may also have this problem. it is possible that i turned the engine off so quickly that the computer didn't register the problem? i'm just glad that i wasn't on the open road, but at a stop sign when this happened so i was able to shut the car off immediately. *tr.Mileage was 15735 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Aug 10, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . bought '08 toyo rav4 new from serra toyo in b'ham al. now with 54k miles and no problems until now. about 10 days ago while in traffic and upon braking for traffic signal, as we came to a near stop, with foot on the brake pedal, the car accelerated and lunged forward about 8-10 ft stopping only inches short of the car ahead of us. i had my foot firmly on the brake pedal the entire time and the car had decelerated to a near stop, so this is not a stuck accelerator. floor mats were not near the accelerator pedal. even so, i decided that i must have erred in some way and moved on. about two days later as we were pulling into a business, we had an identical repeat, this time coming within inches of hitting the front of the business. there was no doubt this time that this was not operator error. it is the distinct feeling of the accelerator being pushed down and overriding the brake. each time, the stop was not as a result of my foot on the brake, it was simply related to the fact that the acceleration stopped before we hit anything. i called for a flatbed and paid $160 to have the vehicle towed 60 miles to the dealership as driving was not an option. serra assured me that they would take this very seriously and would have investigators come in and check the car out. they called me today to tell me that everything checked out fine and there was nothing wrong with the car and we could pick it up. i absolutely refuse to drive this car again. we live on a major hwy and if this had occurred at the end of our driveway it could have produced tragic results. i need help! what do i do? i called toyota customer serv. and they said if the investigators say nothing is wrong, there is nothing for them to do. the '08 rav4 is not included in the recalls and i suspect that toyota is simply going to refuse to acknowledge this so they don't have to address yet another model year. if you have other reports of this in a '08 rav4, please take them seriously. please advise! *tr.Mileage was 54000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Dec 15, 2010.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . while my wife attempted to park the vehicle head first, under normal conditions, at the street in front of our home, the vehicle suddenly accelerated. the acceleration occurred while the vehicle was already nearly stopped, and caused her to hit another vehicle parked in front causing significant damage to both vehicles. even after our vehicle was stopped the engine kept accelerating, thus pushing the vehicle in front which we had collided into. the engine only stopped accelerating after my wife turned off the car. at no point did my wife step on the gas pedal, this was not a case of pedal confusion. her foot was on the brake (slowing down to park) before and after the vehicle started accelerating. the acceleration was quite severe, i am not sure the car could accelerate that fast even if the gas pedal was pushed all the way down intentionally. this is the fourth incident of unintended acceleration we've had with this vehicle. the three other incidents occurred on the highway. we complained to toyota in the summer of 2010, but they told us that the vehicle was not covered by the recall and we could do nothing about it. they refused to inspect the vehicle closely to determine the cause of the problem. in no case was the gas pedal stuck, or the floor mat was in the way. the vehicle simply accelerates without warning and at seemingly random times.this problem has caused over $4000 in damages in just the latest incident. when we reported the latest incident to toyota they claimed that this was a case of pedal confusion and dismissed our complaint. this was not a case of pedal confusion. my wife already had her foot on the brake slowing down to park the vehicle. only once the vehicle was nearly parked did the vehicle accelerate while my wife's foot was still on the brakes. our problem is being dismissed by toyota. surely other toyota vehicles are suffering the. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on June 16, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . yesterday, june 16, 2011, as i was driving my toyota 2008 rav4 (35,500 miles), the car accelerated uncontrollably. the car was still cold -- it was less than 2 miles after start-up. outdoor temp was about 65. no rain or inclement weather. i approached a red light very slowly, at less than 10 mph. as i was braking, i became aware that the car was not stopping. i braked harder and could feel the breaks engaging, but underneath that feeling was the feeling of the car continuing to accelerate and fight the brakes. i got the car stopped, but only after extremely hard braking. if there had been someone in the cross walk in front of me, i'd have hit them. the car was still trying to take off. i put the transmission in park and took my foot off the brake. by now the engine was screaming. i sat there for a couple of seconds, foot neither on the brake nor the accelerator and the car sounding as if it would soon explode, and finally just turned the car off and called a tow truck and took it to the dealership. the service writer was cold and distant, non-verbally making sure i understood that he thought i was either lying or blowing the incident out of proportion, while at the same time saying nothing that could actually be quoted as rude. a special technician is supposed to come out from toyota to look at the vehicle. based upon what others have experienced, i expect the dealership to do nothing. the car is clearly unsafe, and knowing that, i cannot ever drive it again. *tr.Mileage was 35500 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . my 2008 toyota rav4 accelerated when the brake was applied on two separate occasions recently. one instance took place on or about june 30, 2011, the second time happened on or about monday, august 1, 2011. the first time, toyota claimed that the non-braking/unexpected acceleration problem was caused by floor mats i put in the car. i bought these for the car because i felt the ones toyota originally provided were not safe (heels on my shoes, though flat, kept getting caught in the deep ridges of their mats, making it difficult to maneuver). after speaking with the toyota 's mechanics, i threw out my mats and replaced them with new toyota mats recommended by the dealership. about one month later the same thing happened again. when i applied my foot to the brake, instead of this action stopping the car, the car accelerated and moved forward. the first time this happened, my car was approaching a stop sign at the bottom of a hill leading to my complex's exit. as i neared the stop sign in front of a very busy roadway, i started applying my brakes. the car did not slow down. although i pushed down harder & harder on the brake in a desperate effort to stop the car, it continued to move forward. my rav4 went onto the roadway, narrowly missing a truck in oncoming traffic. the second time i was in a parking lot. i think there is something significantly wrong with this car and do not believe it to be safe. the mechanic at toyota, before even examining the car, claimed it was "human error." i have driven many cars in my lifetime and have never had this happen to me before. it is my sincere hope that the nhtsa & dot will look into this and other related matters. it appears there are many people having brake problems with these cars. i truly believe people's lives are in danger. i'm afraid to have my granddaughters travel in my car! *kb.Mileage was 63000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on July 08, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION . at around 9:30 am on july 8, i was on i-15 in s. utah when my right rear tie rod failed. very scary and i was lucky i did not end up rolled over in the ditch, hit another vehicle, or get hit by another vehicle. i had no idea why my car was so suddenly out of control. i originally thought i had blown a front wheel. there was no previous warning, such as a shimmy or vibration or any steering issues at all. i asked the tow truck to take me to the toyota dealer which was about 50 miles away. however, he convinced me that it was simple to replace the tie rod and since my rav4 was a 2008, aftermarket parts would be easy to get from napa. it was a sunday, so i ended up getting the car dropped off at goodyear in cedar city, since i would need an alignment after the new tie rod was put in. on monday morning i found out you can only get the tie rod part from the dealer and they did not have any in stock, so had to wait until wednesday to get it fixed. after it was fixed, they were not able to do an exact alignment and said it was off by a mm. fyi - there was no rust on the broken tie rod. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 78712 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Apr 05, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with AIR BAGS . airbag warning light was on. we received notice that our vehicle was included in a general rav4 / highlander recall for side airbag sensor issues.after receiving free dealership service for the recall, the warning light was still on. we called the service dept. and were told that it was just a glitch and they would reset it at our next scheduled service (oil change). 4 months later, at the oil change, we were told the airbag warning light related to a spiral cable airbag sensor (b1801 open in squib d) which needed to be replaced; also told this failure was completely unrelated to the original recall for side airbag issues. after complaining to the dealer, they offered to pay for the part (approx. $275.00) and we would be responsible for the labor charge ($109.00) the service and dealership managers never acknowledged that there was a known issue although many car forums are rife with complaints on this issue. although the problem was resolved with little cost to me, i am complaining to add to the database so that others will know they are at risk and in the hope that enough complaints will cause toyota to address the issue in public. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 73000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Aug 14, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . approximately 5 minutes after i started up my car and began driving today i began to notice a strange and strong odor. i had my driver's side window down (power windows) and initially attributed the odor to a large truck that was several car lengths ahead of me. i noticed that the odor persisted even once the truck was no longer visible to me or in close proximity. at that point i then entered onto a major highway via the entrance ramp, and got my speed up to the speed limit of 65 miles per hour. as i was driving i noticed a large amount of smoke coming up from my power window switches on the driver's door. in addition to the smoke i could see an actual flame burning underneath the switches. my initial response was fear and panic, but i was able to find a safe spot to pull off to the side of the highway after a couple of minutes. my first thought was to dial 911, but i was afraid by the time someone arrived the car might burst into flames and blow up!! i immediately thought that i needed to try to extinguish the fire somehow as my car was filling with smoke and the odor was overwhelming. i quickly looked around to see if i had any bottled water in the car-but i did not. the only liquid i had accessible to dowse the flames was my iced coffee-so i poured a small amount over the smoke and flames coming from the switches to extinguish the fire, but it continued to burn. i then proceeded to pour half of my iced coffee over the switches which did finally extinguish the fire. as a result of the fire the only window that will actually move now is the driver's side window. the passenger's window will not move at all and the two rear windows will only move if using the switches on the back doors. as a result of the fire my car now has a very distinguishable burnt odor to it! needless to say this was one of the scariest experiences i have had when driving my car. *tr.Vehicle was on fire. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 69402 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Dec 21, 2011.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . my 2008 rav 4 is burning oil at an unusually high rate. this began last december when my oil light flicked on when i was braking. when i brought it into a service station they said i had no oil. i have since brought it back to my dealer a few times for the light coming on and being out of oil. i have already done the oil consumption test back in may but toyota felt that it was normal for my car to have lost oil in 1569 miles (per the owners manual). i just had it back at the dealer because after driving only 3,200 miles since my last oil change, my oil light flicked on again. when i checked it there was no oil in the vehicle. i know there is a tsb out for this issue with my car, and several other models of toyota, but since i don't have an extended warranty on my vehicle the dealer/service dept told me to contact toyota directly. toyota did not acknowledge that i have an issue and continued to quote me page 314 of the owners manual and the oil consumption criteria on the page. for some reason they could not see the notes from my dealer from earlier in the day that i had run out of oil after 3,200 miles. the customer service rep actually said to me "what is it you want us to do?" i told him i want you to fix my car that you know has a problem as described in the tsb. i was told to once again do the oil consumption test with my dealer. i agree with others, if my car is set to go 5000 miles without an oil change, but i only went 3200 and had no oil, how can they not recall the vehicle or be forced to fix this known issue?!! toyota, i feel, is jeopardizing mine and my family's safety by not correcting this issue. what disturbs me greatly is that the light doesn't come on and stay on, it flicks on when you are breaking so if you miss it, you will not know you are out of oil. a recall is in order and i hope it occurs before my engine is blown!! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMBD33V986.

Toyota Rav4 2008 Power Train Review #10485310

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on May 31, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . for a while i recall a light flashing on my dash but it would disppear before i could actually see what it was. on may 31, '12, i was able to see it was the oil light. apparently my rav4 was running "low" on oil and i didn't know. so on june 1 (61,469miles) i took it in and the service advisor couldn't "elaborate" what happened, so they topped off the oil until i was due for another maintenance. (i did have another scheduled oil change before my next incident) well, during the first few weeks of nov '12 i noticed the flashing again and i couldn't confirm what was flashing until nov 17 when i had to hit my brakes and bam, the oil light again! when we got home & rav was cooled off we checked the oil.....and guess what, i had no oil again! i took it back to the service dep't (after doing research as to this happening around the country) and since a tsb doesn't mean crap to them, i have to do this oil consumption test because i am over the 60,000mile powertrain warranty and they will not honor the "life time powertrain warranty" that was given to me by the previous owner of the lot. i have contacted toyota and opened a case, but they will not even began to review it until the oil consumption test comes back "abnormal". so in the mean time i have to worry is my "engine" going to blow up due to lack of oil. this is my only means of transportation. when will toyota acknowledge that there is a problem and make this a recall rather than a tsb....is it because they don't want to front the bill? does the consumers safety not matter to them? and don't forget the tsb came out in 2011 and yet the service department didn't even think to tell me that this could "possibly" be the issue! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTMZD33V585.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Nov 17, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION . i received a "interim" recall notice from toyota stating that there was an issue with the rear suspension arm and that failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. they instructed owners to call only if they experienced any strange noises coming from the rear of the vehicle. i did notice that recently especially when backing up that i would hear a popping noise coming from the rear passenger side of the vehicle. i called and they scheduled an appointment with my local dealership for the following week. the day after i scheduled my vehicle to be looked at the rear suspension arm no. 1 separated while driving on a busy 4 lane highway. this caused the vehicle to initially start to sway back and forth and as i tried to pull over to the breakdown lane i then lost complete control of the vehicle which then spun around in the direction of on coming vehicles. fortunately we did not suffer any injuries and the vehicle came to rest at the top of an exit off ramp. now that i experienced how serious this really is i have serious concerns as to why toyota didn't advise me to immediately bring the vehicle to a dealership. this could have been a serious and deadly crash. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 124000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 31, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . the onboard computer (ecm) program is defective in the 2008 rav4, and probably other years and models, causing owners to unnecessarily bring cars in and pay for unneeded service. when i started the car to begin an interstate drive, 3 fault indicators (check engine,vehicle stability control, 4 wheel drive) illuminated. following owners manual, my wife called the nearest toyota dealer who told her to bring the vehicle to a toyota dealer immediately, and to drive cautiously, to allow additional room when following other vehicles, and not to attempt sudden stops. another fault indicator (cruise control would not engage) presented itself enroute. the service technician said the reason for all 4 fault indications was the #6 cylinder misfired 1 time a few seconds after i started the vehicle. he said the ecm is programmed to give these 4 fault indications for a cylinder misfire, but he did not know why. he said that he could find no reason for the single misfire, but that he found and tightened a slightly loose air intake hose that could not possibly have caused the misfire. he told me that it would have been fine for me to make my interstate drive without coming to the dealership. i believe that the onboard computer programming that provided these 4 fault indications is defective for the following reasons. 1. a single cylinder misfire is unrelated to and has no effect upon the three systems pointed to by the fault indications (vehicle stability control, 4 wheel drive, cruise control) 2. a single cylinder misfire at startup is not an emergency situation requiring immediate service at a toyota dealership with extraordinarily cautious driving enroute. 3. during the 1 hour drive to the dealership the cylinders of the vehicle fired successfully around 360,000 times, and the programming did not recognize this faultless operation and automatically clear the fault indicators..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 54450 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . i had just dropped off my fiance at work and was attempting to turn around in the parking lot when my steering wheel dropped roughly 8 inches hitting my leg. the steering wheel can be moved 8 to 12 inches up and down with little resistance. it can also move be moved 6 to 8 inches left to right with no resistance. it's not guided in any way, you can move it around in a large circular motion. the car amazingly enough still steers. the steering assembly is still attached to the steering intermediate shaft as well as the rack and pinion. though when you do attempt to steer, it makes a horrible popping sound, which makes sense because the shaft is no longer in a fixed position. upon investigation it looks like a factory weld has failed. for a 2008 rav4, the steering column assembly is mounted to the instrument panel reinforcement bar. this is a large bar that runs the length of your dashboard. this bar has a few welded mounts on it that allow you to bolt on the steering column assembly, which holds the steering wheel in place, it is these welds which have failed. this is a major safety issue, if the steering wheel had dropped 5 minutes earlier when i was traveling at highway speeds i could have easily lost control of the vehicle. the car had 65,000 miles on it at the time of incident. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 65000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Mar 07, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE . this vehicle is exhibiting excessive oil consumption, up to 1 qt. within 1,000-1,200 miles, based on my own and a toyota dealer's consumption tests. the dealer claims this is "normal" consumption as does toyota motor sales. however, toyota has issued a technical service bulletin (t-sb-0094-11) which acknowledges a consumption issue on my model as well as several others. i have read online message boards of other toyota owners with the exact same issue. there is a known problem with the piston assembly that is causing this, however, toyota refuses to remedy the problem if the vehicle is out of warranty. i contend that this issue was likely present within my warranty but, since i didn't discover it until afterwards, i am simply out of luck with an engine that consumes excessive oil. the dealer quoted me $3,400 to repair. i purchased a toyota for its perceived reliability, but am now stuck with a high maintenance vehicle that i will have to monitor closely as long as i own it. i feel that this problem warrants a recall, due to the extent of the problem in terms of vehicles affected and the potential severity of engine problems. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 93667 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on June 27, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i purchased my toyota rav4 in january 2008 at toyota of fort worth; my warranty expired on january 19, 2012. the car has around 58,000 miles on it. after purchasing the vehicle, i would bring it in, to the same agency, every 5,000 miles for the routine scheduled maintenance. on june 9, 2011 i began taking my toyota to freeman toyota in hurst since it was closer to where i live. unfortunately, i noticed that after 2,500 miles the fluid levels were dangerously low before the scheduled maintenance was due. therefore i would bring in the car earlier that expected. with every visit the response that the employee assisting me gave me was, -don't worry, we'll top it off. even though my records do not express my concern about the fluid levels, i have been having the problem since then. on june 27, 2013, i took my car back to toyota of fort worth due to the same concern; i was told that there might be an oil leak that would possibly be causing the problem. a diagnostic was suggested and it was confirmed that there was no oil leak. i was then told that they needed to check the engine to see why so much oil was being absorbed, but that it could cost me up to $800. i spoke to the manager at this agency stating that i strongly believe that not suggesting a diagnostic on my car within my warranty time frame was completely unethical and i don't believe it is fair to ask me to pay so much money now that the warranty is expired when i had expressed this concern while i still under the warranty. he told me there was nothing he could do.i am a teacher and just like any other individual, i expected to have a reliable vehicle. i cannot afford expensive maintenance and do not see that it is fair to have to pay for additional charges that the manufacturer or service agent did not make me aware of at the appropriate time.thank you for your consideration in this matter. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 57000 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Jan 02, 2012.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . engine is consuming oil. i bought the rav4 2.4 engine 2008 brand new. very well maintained by the dealer's records. at the beginning of 2010, i start noticing that the oil level is getting lower every time before the oil change. i thought it was due to some leak. the dealer said there are no leaks in the engine oil and the oil consumption rate is acceptable. i don't understand how it would be, but they argued that it is stated in the owner manual. it got worse by time, now i have to add a full quart or more between oil changes just to avoid engine damage. i owned many cars before, older models, none of them required adding oil before the next oil change. after researching the matter, i found that it is not only my car. toyota knows about the issue but does not want to fix it. i even found a document with vin's of the cars affected by the issue tsb-0094-11 (piston ring?) consuming that much oil is not normal, and i believe will shorten the engine's life and is really bad for the environment. i bought the car because of it's reputation of being dependable and it has a big name behind it. i hope someone ask toyota to step up and fix this problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45000 miles.

Toyota Rav4 2008 Engine Review #10592679

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on Mar 25, 2014.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . i began to notice a burnt oil smell when i would return home from school in the evening, i checked my oil, the dip stick showed not a trace of oil! the vehicle was half way between oil changes at the time, my husband added 4 quarts of oil (so we know for certain it was empty) and brought it to toyota. they "checked it", changed the oil, and sent us on our way telling us to monitor the oil level. this was at 68k miles. it was next due for an oil change at 73,000miles i checked the oil level yesterday at 71,000 miles and it was nearly empty. called the dealer again, was told they couldn't get me in for 10 days!! i called another toyota dealer who told me to bring it in. the service mgr acknowledged there was a problem with "certain rav 4 engines" and that a service bulletin had been issued to repair the issue (not a recall-he made that clear). he explained that i would have to follow their procedure before it can be repaired though by doing two oil consumption tests (that i have to pay $24.95 for, and drive 1200 miles each) then i would have to authorize them to do an engine removal and disassembly for $575 to determine it is not something i had done to the car. i have babied this vehicle from day one! i never go beyond 4000 miles for an oil change, ever. now i have to drive my family around in a potentially hazardous vehicle while they decide whether or not to repair the engine that they have known there was a problem with for years!! unacceptable! this is terrifying knowing that my engine could seize at any moment while i am on the highway driving with my child. it is equally as frightening to realize that i may end up having to pay $6000+ for a new engine for this piece of defective merchandise i am still paying for because toyota believes they are above the law. please hold them accountable. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 68111 miles.

TOYOTA RAV4 2008 car safety problem was reported on June 25, 2013.TOYOTA RAV4 2008, manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . our 2008 rav4 oil light came on and we had just had our oil changed so we thought the business didn't add enought oil when they did the oil change. we took it back and was told it was an oil comsumption problem that this model year has. first we heard about it. we took it to toyota dealer in omaha and they immediately said we had no warranty for this without even looking at it. red flag. they then did a test where they did another oil change and we drove it for 1000 miles then took it back. they said we did not have an oil comsumption problem. fast forward to august 2014 and the oil light again came on. the dip stick was dry. we took it again to dealer and was told we did have an oil comsumption. he didn't even look at it. my husband was furious since we had been told we didn't have that problem 13 months eariler. we have been told it would take $5000 to $6000 to fix it since it would require a new engine. since then we have found out a lot of people have hade this problem and toyota refuses to do anything about it even though they put the faulty engines in these vehicles. the are trying to shirk their responsibility because this recall cost a little more. where does this leave the consumer? if we trade it we just lost $5000 to $6000 in value. if we don't we are stuck with a faulty vehicle. there should be a recall for this oil consumption problem. oviously this is a problem that came right out of the manufacturing of this vehicle. my husband called toyota and they just argued with him. no help..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 81471 miles.
