2011 Toyota RAV4 Recalls

If the nuts for adjusting the rear wheel alignment are improperly tightened during service, the rear tire rod may develop unwanted movement and rust, leading to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the tie rods and replace any that have rust or corrosion on the alignment adjustment threads. All rear tie rods will then be encased in an epoxy to prevent future environmental damage.

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2011 RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS250h passenger vehicles. If nuts securing the rear tie rod are not tightened properly during service, unwanted movement and rust can develop leading to component failure. Failure of the rear tire rod will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment. This could lead to a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. As of this writing, remedy information is not available for this recall.

2011 Toyota RAV4 Reviews

I have a 2011 Rav4 i brought in May 2011. After one month of driving the tire pressure light came on i put air in it. It kept on happening. The dealer check and found no air leaks. That did not stop the problem. The front tire goes flat frequently.

I HAD A 2009 4X4 TACOMA V6 THE AUTO TRANS DOES NOT HAVE A DIP STICK TO CHECK THE TRANS FLUID . THE SERVICE DEPT SAID I WILL HAVE TO BRING IT TO THEM AND THEY WOULD CHECK IT FOR $100.00 LABOR COST AND $10.00 A QT FOR ANY TRANS FLUID THEY ADD. I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT THE TRUCK IF I KNEW THAT WAS THE WAY IT WAS.I DID CALL NISSAN AND THEY SAID ALL THERE TRUCK HAD TRANS DIP STICKS.

New car to me had a Pontiac Vibe this seems to be a bigger version. Wish it had hard plastic back seat backs and floor like the vibe did so hauling my surfboards did not damage carpet. Wish the front passenger seat folded forward flat like the vibe and matrix. Like to have instrument color in differant color then yellow maybe blue that is easier on the eyes at night.
