2007 Toyota RAV4 Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Evaporative system may have problems with the vapor canister releasing charcoal pellets that plug the vent valve. Typically a Code P0441, P0442 and P0446 will be set. The key code is the P0446 which is a vent valve electrical failure. The proper repair is to replace the entire canister with all the valves as a unit. This is located on top of the fuel tank and is expensive. Our Technicians tell us that for awhile Toyota was covering th...

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

If the car will not start, the most likely problem is worn or corroded
solenoid contacts in the starter. Usually, these parts can be replaced
without purchasing a new starter.

2007 Toyota RAV4 Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., April 21, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

One or both sensors designed to detect vehicle roll angle may fail, resulting in illumination of the airbag waring light and suspension of the roll detection system. If both sensors were to fail under certain conditions, the curtain shield airbag and seat belt pretensioner could be inadvertently activated. Inadvertent activation of airbag components can result in injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the airbag sensor assembly with a new one containing improved roll rate sensors. This recall is scheduled to begin during May 2011.

2007 Toyota RAV4 Reviews

2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport v6 - purchased new. Now 75k and this week the fuel pump went out. Cost $850 to fix.

I have a 2007 RAV4 sport. So far the drive train had to be replaced and the water pump and the hoses were leaking. Now six months later the airconditioning has gone out and will cost another $2,000 to replace it.

Purchased new 4cyl power really lacking. Would recommend 6cyl vs 4cyl. Comfort & ride very good. Mileage in 25mpg range. Cruise control takes some getting use. Like rear door swing open feature. At 30000 miles very happy with RAV4....

Love this car!
