#774 of 831 hum when I am pushing the gas petal
Jan 14, 2010 (8:34 pm)
I have 14k on 08-v-6 engine. I bought the car one month ago but just noticed a hum when I push the gas petal, to me sounds like the tranm. but my wife thinks it might be the tires. When I let up on the gas the hum disappears, dealer is busy now with the snowbirds so I guess I will wait until they go back until I take it in. What do you guys think?? Harry PS vehicle is a Rav-4

I have 07 Rav4 limited - with just over 62K miles, I noticed clunking noise, and took to dealer. They said it was a steering column problem, and quoted me over $900 to repair. I said BS, and wrote Toyota Corporate. They laughed at me and said too bad - out of warranty, we won't help you! Sounds like a design/manufacturing flaw to me that Toyota should be covering. I guess their reliability isn't what we all thought!

Stand your ground, I was able to get them to cover labor out of warranty, it is a part defect, it should be a recall. Escalate more and make noise and see what happens.

We have a 2006 Toyota RAV 4 limited. Last summer we noticed a clunking noise when you turned the steering wheel. Fortunately we had an extended warranty and the costs were covered. It appears that this was a design flaw and Toyota should cover it.

I had the problem checked out on my 06 Rav4 and Toyota said that is was a resistor that had gone bad. I don't have the specific info on my right now, but if you are interested, I can get it later. I was on the forum looking at the steering issues.

#780 of 831 scuff marks/scratches on Rav4, how to remove
Mar 16, 2010 (3:47 pm)
I walked outside to my Rav4 after grocery shopping and I noticed a bunch of scuff marks on the rear. Can anyone tell me how I can safely try to remove them w/out any body shop work?
Here is a link to the pics.

It's not a miracle cure for really bad scratches, but it will make it better appearing at the least and it's not too expensive to try and see. (one of your cheaper options to try first). Good stuff to have on hand anyway. A lot of places carry their stuff so it should be easy to pick some up to try.
