Little loading road noise.

1 Jun

Still solid, no squeaks or rattles.

3 May

Interior is uncomfortable, stiff ride, noisy and under-powered.

11 Mar

Since most of our miles are at speeds of 70 - 80 on expressways, the wind noise was horrible.

Having said that the car is noisy, not very comfortable, the interior is cheap, and the engine is under powered.

Car is not what Toyota claimed mileage or handling and a lot of wind noise.

Road noise is a bit disappointing, as is Toyota's navigation system,

but Toyotas- a celica, 3 supras, a Tacoma and all have treated me well.

15 Feb

I can barely press my thumb against the door and it squeaks.

26 Oct

next the rattle it the steering column started getting loud, I can hear it on the highway now.

14 Jul

The road noise is insanely loud especially on the highway.

14 Dec

The road noise is also not great either.

30 Nov

The ride quality and road noise are horrible on this car!

14 Jul

The Toyota Highlander has the same issue with road noise, sounds like I'm driving with a window open, must just be an issue with Toyota engineering.

3 May

It's developed some noises that I'm concerned about.

26 Sep

27,000 miles, 4 years old, steering column shot and very noisy.

6 Aug

I am having issues with a knocking feel and steering column rattle noise.

20 Jul

Road noise is Horrible and it has always pulled to the right.

27 Mar

The steering column was an issue and after I researched it and made Toyota aware of it, they did replace the steering column on their dime.

15 Feb

The bad and really bad: The steering column's are made of plastic and break. often.

26 Oct

next the rattle it the steering column started getting loud, I can hear it on the highway now.

14 Jul

I am now at 122,000 miles and have had clicking in my steering wheel when I turn, and the A/C has started acting up.

12 Feb

The only issue is the steering wheel clicking that started around 38K miles.

3 May

It makes a noise in the steering wheel column when turning, which I read is common in this model.

26 Sep

27,000 miles, 4 years old, steering column shot and very noisy.

6 Aug

I am having issues with a knocking feel and steering column rattle noise.

27 Oct

At 30k miles, the steering column had to be replaced and at 36k miles, trans is starting to wine.

1 Aug

I have steering problems with 09 venza Toyota can not repair and I have been told tough!

15 Mar

I have had only one problem in 70,000mi, which was the radio/navigation system wouldn't come back on after replacing the battery which was covered by my extended warranty

31 Dec

It also had two AC compressor failures under warrenty and has been trouble free for 30000 miles

14 Jul

even though it had just went out of the warranty they did it for free because if they would have found the problem the first time it would have been under warranty.

6 Aug

Toyota gave me the TSB for a Steering Column Rattle Noise, T-SB-0005-11, and said my Venza is one month out of the Toyota 3yr basic warranty.

22 Jan

Ride is harsh, not enough cushion in 20" tires, four warranty repairs- glove box catch broken, rubber molding on roof blew off, headlights adjustment, replace fog light bezel, all within 3700 miles.

17 Jul

Most reliable vehicle that I have ever owned along w/my 1977 Toyota Celica GT.

15 Apr

Because of the relative small space in the engine compartment the manifold ports had to be designed to have very quick bends off the block plate and this causes stress cracking at the welds.

12 Mar

lubricated twice due to a "thunk" sound and small lurch when stopping - no charge by the dealer; apparently it is common. 2.

8 Jan

The one small downside is that the seat bottom is not quite long enough to give good thigh support on a long trip if you happen to have long legs.

2 Dec

Only complaint is exterior body hardware, had small fender bender while parked

6 Nov

This is our third Toyota (Tundra and Matrix) and have been just as impressed with the performance and quality save for a couple of small annoyances like the TPMS and the temp controls with a mind of their own.

5 Jan

Wanted something smaller -

8 Aug

The biggest one is the way the trans shifts/drives.

3 Mar

My 4 runner has 122.000 and is going on 11years old and everything works like new the only thing I didn't like is I can't check the transmission fluid why would you seal the transmission

15 Dec

I replaced my 1998 Toyota 4 Runner manual shift because I thought I should now drive an automatic.

13 Dec

The visibility seems excellent and I am expecting same Toyota quality I had in my Fav 84 Celica.

30 Jul

I didn't give it five stars because the ride and road noise aren't the best,

8 May

but worst of all was the 'Highlander startup rattle' Look for it, there's many examples out there.

18 Feb

There have been numerous rattles in the doors and currently the rear seat vibrates loudly even at low speeds.

1 Jan

I have to take constant trips to the dealership to get rattles fixed all over the car.

30 Jan

My 2008 Highlander started making a severe sparkknock noise upon cold start.

7 Dec

What drives me crazy is the dash rattles, which is way worse in winter.

28 Jun

N/A

12 Feb

too many rattles in the dashboard that is driving me crazy, gets worse in the winter

4 Feb

In the snow, my brakes seem to lock the front wheels after a thumping noise.

24 Jan

Some rattling noises from the dashboard in the cold when hitting bumps.

11 Oct

but did not realize that this could be a transmission issue.

8 May

Body rattles, transmission shift-float problems (FINALLY shifted normally after dealer performed a software recall for the brakes.

13 Jan

Have replaced numerous door rest inserts, ratlles coming from every corner, New transmission at 80k, now it's in the shop because the lift gate needs a new hydraulic system.

23 Feb

supposedly they have to drop the engine and the transmission to get to the water pump on the side of the engine.

7 Aug

Another concern is lag on acceleration - shifting from 1 to 2 gear.

8 May

Long story short we took it in to be checked out and found out we need a new transmission!!!!

27 Apr

When going up small hills the transmission will not shift up and jerks when it does shift.

14 Apr

Second, the transmission makes me crazy. From a rolling start, the transmission doesn't upshift quickly enough from first to second, resulting in an awkward "pull."

2 Jan

but when starting off going down hill (which is how our drive is situated) this transmission is rough.

4 Dec

And heavy accelerations isn't well accepted by this transmission.

14 Apr

), the car had 1 issue in 8 years (water pump failure, covered under warranty - took an hour to fix).

14 Mar

Make sure sure sure before you buy this that the oil cooling pipe has been replaced under the extended warranty.

4 Jun

The tires cost about $1400 (poor choice and expensive) and regardless of the warranty they last only a mere 19K.

7 Sep

Yes, it was outside the warranty and Toyota has no obligation to fix it and I have no obligation to purchase another Toyota.

23 Sep

I was surprised that reliability has not been as good as I expected from what I was told of Toyota ( good marketing I guess),and some repair items under warranty required discussion elevated to dealer manager before issue was resolved.

22 Mar

The RAV 4 can get me through the midwestern snow storms without much problems (big problem with my celica).

9 Oct

If I had to list one bad thing about the RAV4, I would say that it is very noisy and it is a very rough ride.

20 Nov

One other thing if you hear any wheel noise it could need wheel bearings so you might want the dealer to repair that for you because that could get expensive.

20 Aug

Then, as we were driving the car away from the shop, we hear a grinding noise on mild turns, a $600 repair to change one of the wheel bearings.

29 Apr

The engine noise within the cabin is worst than my Accord!

11 Feb

Noise in the back started six months ago, finally the last month Toyota Shop found the cause of the noise: one large screw of the left damper support is damaged!! !

7 Feb

At 74500 miles every time i stop an a traffic light i have to shift in neutral because of very heavy vibration and noise and the CD changer works occasionally .

4 Mar

rattles if not on a completely smooth surface.

13 Nov

Did not expect the rattles from Toyota.

3 Jul

Problems with rattles, stereo, air in brake lines, and loud road and wind noise all doomed the RAV.

15 Jun

Slightly noisy,

22 Jul

I love that companies weren't using that awful CV Transmission at that time, so the automatic transmission was a huge plus.

11 May

N/A

20 Aug

Over 76,000 miles we've had to replace all six cylinder ignition coils, the water pump and, just last week, the transmission, a $4,200 repair (luckily covered by our Geico insurance).

7 Feb

At 74500 miles every time i stop an a traffic light i have to shift in neutral because of very heavy vibration and noise and the CD changer works occasionally .

26 Apr

It grinds, growls, shifts hard, steers hard, and every time I go in for an oil change I have to replace or repair something.

25 May

Shifts late at times, just enough to be annoying.

1 Jan

RAV is jerky when shifting on its own, hills and passing, not always a smooth ride.

22 Nov

Transmission shifts very different than I am used to, my other car is a benz.

15 Oct

The 5-speed auto is seamless and shifts when it should.

24 Aug

but the transmission doesn't seem to know how to accommodate it from a stop; my tires squeal too easily.

11 Nov

5 Jan

My volume on the radio didnt work & it made a sound that I never heard before underneath as I was leaving.

4 May

Also the Rav 4 is loud on the highway and the radio is hard to hear and it isn't very clear either.

12 Jun

Another gripe is the v. poor visibility of the electronic displays (radio, clock) which become impossible to see during the day with sun glasses on.

15 May

I enjoy listening to the radio and just have to turn it off because of road noise.

27 Dec

Had an issue with the radio malfunctioning,

22 Nov

Clock and radio readouts hard to see.

26 Aug

Radio controls on the steering wheel should be standard.

17 Aug

The antenna does not bother you too much.

6 Jul

Only serious complaint is that you can't read radio and clock display in daytime or with sunglasses on.

10 Jun

Having never been a particular fan of RAV4s or Toyota – not for any reason other than general indifference – I would not have guessed how in love with this vehicle I would fall.

25 Apr

He has had countless issues from AC compressor going out twice, sensor issues in tranny causing check engine.

15 Jun

Wish it had rear A/C vents.

30 Jul

(One minor gripe is the first 3 fan settings on the AC are fairly weak and while the 4th is decent, it sounds like a jet engine.)

17 Nov

Temp display could be better. 7.)

3 Nov

Due to the redesign I know that there is a design flaw in the air vent (Admitted to my husband and I by Toyota)It allows rain water to get in and collect in the floor of the front passenger side.

21 Jul

MPG is a little disappointing as is vibration at idle when the air conditioning is on.

28 Apr

The only minor issue I have is that the I notice the A/C putting a minor drag on the engine when I am doing around 30 mph.

14 Mar

Loses oil due to faulty piston rings.

23 Mar

It has never failed to start when turn the key over.

I drove a Celica for 4 years and Corolla S performs as well with more interior space and visibilty.

24 Jan

The brakes were replaced at 118K, not b/c they were squeaking,

9 Oct

Good mileage, some noise, average maintenance costs; you've heard it before

8 Nov

Road noise is average,

7 Jul

Rattling present at 30K, unacceptable for Toyota.

7 Aug

but the paint quality is poor and the road noise is terrible.

13 Jan

Any time I think I hear a noise or think the car has changed in some way, it's just me.

13 Jun

So far dealership has replaced squeaky belt and engine computer chip-after check engine light went on, luckily still under warranty.

7 Oct

inside noise is to loud, any slight wind blows the car all over the place it's not stable.

Get a manual transmission and you will not be disappointed.

though the paint is beginning to fade in places and the clock stopped working, the engine and transmission are top-notch and running great.

7 Sep

The transmission torque converter ended up being bad.

30 Oct

4 Jun

Then the transmission failed again and out $3500.Then the ECM failed after one year so no warranty and out $700.

24 Jan

Check engine light came on at 78K, ECM in transmission went bad and was covered in a recall.

1 Sep

Then my transmission started acting weird, so I had the fluids changed and still the same problem.

19 May

Fought with Toyota for 6 months and received no help until MANUAL transmission stalled on the highway!! UNACCEPTABLE.

20 Oct

This is my third Toyota it is a 2006 Corolla and I have had the transmission replaced twice and the computer replaced once.

8 Nov

It has a very awkward steering wheel position and the handling is not very good.

7 Jul

but steering feels artificial, especially when hard turning corners; feels like wheel orientation and steering don't match up.

11 Mar

Now for the bad news, very uncomfortable seats, steering wheel does not telescopic, air conditioning hardly blows out at all when in head/foot postion.

20 Jan

Less than a year and 9000 km after I purchased my 2006 Corolla, my steering pump is broken and it is undriveable.

23 Sep

Seating and steering wheel positioning is a bit tricky,

27 Apr

Steering wheel too far away!!

15 Apr

The steering wheel doesn't have many tilt positions.

24 Nov

The only thing I do not like is the position of the driver seat in relation to the steering wheel with the seat back it is uncomfortable to reach the wheel.

2 Sep

After a water pump replacement under the warrantee there has been no need for repairs, except routine replacement of rubber items.

4 Jun

Then the transmission failed again and out $3500.Then the ECM failed after one year so no warranty and out $700.

11 Aug

The dealer said it a electrical problem and my warranty wouldn't cover it.

13 Jun

So far dealership has replaced squeaky belt and engine computer chip-after check engine light went on, luckily still under warranty.

18 May

Finally a word of advise if you are not under warranty beware you will be out around $900 if this happens to you.

22 Sep

Very little road noise and no rattles.

6 Sep

Took it to the dealer and after repair I now have an unbearable wind noise in the cabin that is proving hard for them to find/fix.

26 Aug

The fit and finish is typical of the Toyota brand, no squeaks, no rattles.

21 Mar

Steering problems, oil leaks, radio problems.

5 Mar

No real quality issues for the new model with the exception of the radio door sticking.

22 Sep

We were told the xm radio was pre-wired and it was not.

7 Aug

The factory installed XM satellite radio has been wonderful with the trunk mounted antenna, an unfortunate afterthought and not well integrated into the design.

22 Jul

I am not impressed with the display on the XM radio.

19 Jul

The antenna is on the vehicle centerline half an inch above the rear window.

30 Jun

All those who can't figure out how to turn of the radio from the steering wheel..just hold down the power

4 Apr

Radio and climate controls are embedded within the steering wheel, which greatly reduces driver disorientation while cruising down the highway.

2 Apr

Can not say enough about the access and easy controls for radio, temperature control on steering wheel also individual climate controls on dash are not complicated at all.

23 Feb

The car has all the bells and whistles one could possibly need, from the smart key entry, to remote starter, to XM Radio, to 6-Disc CD Changer, to laser cruise, to navigation, to even ventillated and heated from seats and reclinable rear seats.

30 Oct

Paint seems to be thin though, and has small rust spots in places,

13 Nov

The finish is wearing off on inside the drivers door handle and a few other small issues

31 May

but my children already lost coins and a small sticker in the gap behind the rear seat.

16 May

One small rattle at highway speed when on rough highway, not worried about that being corrected.

13 May

Lincoln LS is also small inside and overpriced.

18 Apr

There is no day and date, the location of the compass on the rear view mirror instead of the dashboard display, the seats don't seem as comfortable, smaller trunk and of course the premium gas requirement.

8 Mar

It has considerably more trunk space than the G-35 which is also quite a bit smaller.

24 Feb

The trunk space is a little smaller than the previous model,but for the exchange for the comfort in the rear seating, makes it worthwhile.

9 Jan

They are expensive to replace as are the wiper blades.

2 May

Dash rattles, trim rattles, windshield rattles that just keep coming back.

30 Jul

Positioning of windshield wiper switch mechanism is too low down on the steering column.

28 Jul

The automatic windshield wipers come on when the drops start to fall and speed up or down depending on the amount of rain without touching one knob.

13 Oct

N/A

17 Nov

Transmission is terrible very jerky.

14 Aug

Transmission hesitation and jerkiness at low speeds is a definite design flaw to me;

21 Mar

Transmission is the worst at slow speed.

26 Jun

The transmission is horrible.

13 May

Transmission seems to shift excessively in traffic.

27 Oct

however, I believe the engine and transmission and drive components will prove reliable.

26 Oct

For example, the transmission and engine hesitate at low speed.

30 Jul

At times I inadvertantly hit it with my knuckle while shifting the gear knob causing the wipers to activate.

22 Jul

The manual shift option on the automatic trans is better on the Chrysler.

I bought this vehicle mainly because of an earlier family purchase of a Celica back in 1985 when my 2 brothers & I beat the heck out of it.

30 Oct

We also had some occaisional brake squeaks - turned out to be those cheaper brake pads and our dirt road. .

23 Dec

Wind noise is somewhat noticeable (hence the Mercedes reference),

5 Oct

Only defect I see is some clanking noise coming from front suspension.

16 Aug

The first thing I notice is a lot of wind noise hitting the windshield, (annoying).

14 Oct

I drove this car down to Indianapolis and it was great only thing wrong was the wind noise.

10 Apr

Opening rear windows w/o front open = weird noise and eardrum pressure.

3 Apr

The biggest negative is the road noise!!!!

6 Aug

I've also noticed an excessive amount of wind noise on the highway, which was addressed in another Toyota TSB.

New breaks and router, new shock absorbers, have done with all kind of engine works (power steering fluid, transmission oil, engine oil flash and radiator flash).

16 Aug

The transmission jumps, I am not the only person with this problem.

29 Jan

The gears do not shift as smoothly as I think they should.

27 Jun

Transmission shifting from 3rd to 4th is a bit "herky jerky" at times

1 Aug

Recently we took the vehicle on vacation and upon returning, we had to have the transmission seal replaced because of a transmission fluid leak.

8 Dec

Also, acceleration is hesitant, problems with transmission.

27 Jul

Transmission is jerky if you step on the gas and then let off.

16 Aug

Five speed transmission is rather rough.

26 Apr

A $28,000 car should have chromatic rearview mirror, MUCH better sound system, a computer that tells if your oil, transmission, fluids are ok and gas mileage etc.

31 Aug

An annoying problem is that the Driver's side tail light / brake light bulb has to be replaced often.
