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.
#812 of 831 The weird floor down slope breaking my knee
May 16, 2012 (8:04 am)
I have purchased RAV4 and after 3 weeks of driving I got knee pain and muscle cramps during the driving. The problem is in the floor slope that is down, not up as in other cars.
Please give me some tip to fix the problem. The car is great, but I am afraid to make an accident because of numb foot. I am 6 feet 2 inches tall, but I have more than enough leg room. I have an option to return the car during the first year, but I like it and donít want another car.
I goggled, but it seems I am the only person with this problem. I am absolutely proportional , not known health issues or disabilities ( I may get some if continue to drive this car)
Please help if you faced the same problem and found solution.
#813 of 831 Bad Smell When Accelerating
May 30, 2012 (4:29 pm)
I have a 2011 RAV 4, V-6. With 7000 miles on it. Upon full acceleration there is a bad smell. Much like rotten eggs. To date I have had no luck with the Dealer getting this resolved. Do you have any ideas as to the cause and a possible resolution?
