#11 of 11 2008 RAV4 Auto Body weaknesses
Mar 15, 2009 (6:32 pm)
I purchased my RAV4 in May, 2008 and it has about 5200 miles. I had the 5000 mile service done on 2/25/09. About four days after this service, I noticed my RAV4 had eight small dents on it. All of the dents were on the body panels were in an area from the bottom of the windows down about 10". There were three dents on the left front panel by the hood, three dents on the right rear quarter panel and two dents on the right rear passenger door. My local Toyota dealer had the dents removed and covered all costs. They did that on 3/6/09. On 3/12/09, I had the car hand washed and now have two dents on the right rear quarter panel again. Is it me or is this car made of tin foil? The dealer said that there was no bulletin from Toyota identifying any problem like this. Has any other owner experienced anything like this?
