May high beams work but my headlights don't. I checked the fuses but I'm a little confused.

It just started to do this before it never came on.

Charcoal canister seems to be culprit. Estimated cost and difficulty of replacement please

This is a V6 base model

I found a page that listed how all the model years compared for the toyota rav4. I'd like to find it again. It gave a rating for each year like "clunker" or better according to problems reported.

doors automatically lock also my check engine and trac light came on and speedometer stop working- this is related to something that may have occured when they replaced the airbags - have only driven the vehile 4 times since they were replaced??

Seems to be when I have it in 3rd or 4th gear.

I want to give my car all it needs to live long and healthy. Any special needs when a newer car takes on so many miles in such a short time to allow it to live long and healthy?

I had heard that the 2005 Rav 4 was going to be part of the recall for the driver's side window. To date I haven't seen anything posted online nor received any documentation from Toyota. Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

The fluids are all full, it's not running hot but there is smoke! The car have 95k miles & the smoke stops when I'm driving! Now when I start driving it makes a loud "clack clack" noise! Idk what it is but I'm afraid to drive it

Any chance at all that all of the following could require changing at the same time:
3 x O2 sensors
1 x air fuel sensor
I lost confidence with the repairer at this stage after 3 weeks and a huge bill. Took it to another shop who found that the ECU was faulty and they fixed it and the car is now fine. Just wondering whether I was ripped off by the first repairer?

it has been burning oil since I got it but now it is losing power when I accelerate. I put oil in it when it was low. I tried a thicker kind now it wont climb hills. no power. too much oil or maybe need oil change? Or what ?

Vehicle does not exhibit any problems since these instrument panel lights came on.

I have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 2WD. manual trans. Recently changing gear has gotten stiff and sometimes the clutch pedal sticks to floor and gradually happening more often (happens more on warmer days). I was told it has to do with the master cylinder? assuming thats the case what would it cost to fix this problem?
thank you

Tie rod ends are by nature wear items, i need one replaced, 3 garages tell me ENTIRE RACK AND PINION MUST BE REPLACED, $2800!, tie rod cannot be replaced by itself, it is integrated into rack. Is this idiotic, or am i idiot for buying the rav4

Actually missing some pieces

It's rainy season here and my car never leaked rain water EVER! Now I felt my foot getting wet and low and behold, its leaking in from both sides of the interior panel near the doors, on both sides! Was there a gasket they may have forgotten to put back?

ac quit blowing cold suddenly, had freon checked-full. what can i check or do to rule out other problems before buying an expensive compressor?
