If you use Edmunds search for "car maintenance" you can input the year, make and model to see the manufacturer recommended maintenance at each 5000 miles. I do not think the term "tune up" is used. My '06 v-6, if I remember correctly does not need new spark plugs until 120,000 mi. Roy

It seems that a lot of dealerships are saying they've never seen this problem. I am 5500k over warranty. Just starting this battle with Toyota. Have you had any luck with Toyota backing up their product?

I have the same problem and hope someone can tell what it is. I've wondered it it has to do with the power brakes.

I have a 06 rav4 V6 and had the same loud knocking noise coming from the left rear when going over uneven road or sometimes turning right. Turns out the left sway bar end link broke and that was the problem--- $192 worth. Only 50,000 mi too!

My 2008 Rav4 has 30k miles on it. My dealer wants $130 for their package. I already changed the air and cabin filter at 20k miles so other than oil change and tire rotation what do I need to do at this point The manual just says to inspect the coolant, trans fluid, front and rear differential. I just don't want to pay them to "inspect" things.

The $130 is probably the price for an oil change and the tire rotation. The inspection is probably thrown in. I got replacement tires for my car at Costco and they rotate and balance them for free. So now when I go into the dealer, I don't want a package because Costco does the rotating. So they just do an oil change and inspect things so they can sell me something extra. The always try to do the cabin filter and air filter. But I do that my self. Have fun.
