Toyota Rav4 Unknown Or Other problems and reviews: 1.
Unknown Or Other Toyota 2011
|System||Unknown Or Other|
This Rav 4 Has Had Two Separate Instances Of Sudden Acceleration. One Time While Approaching A Stop Light, And The Brake Was Applied, The Engine Started To Rev, And The Vehicle Had “extended Stopping Distance”. Luckily, There Was No Car In Front Of Us, Otherwise There Would Have Been An Accident. It Occurred A Second Time While Pulling Into A Parking Spot At Work. Again, Luckily, There Was A Snow Bank In Front Of The Space (and Not Another Car!). The Car Is A 4cyl., And Cert. Pre-owned. It’s Scary To Think There Is This Unpredictable Problem With The Car. Dealer Claims They Know Nothing About It. I Will Be Showing Them The 56 Or So Complaints From This Nhtsa Site For Merely The 2011 rav4. I Haven’t Even Looked At The Other Years Yet! More Than 50% Of The Complaints In Here Are For This Very Same Problem! Isn’t It About Time For A Recall On This Dangerous “feature”? How Many More Lives Need To Be At Risk? Or Is The Govt. Trying To Preserve “toyota Quality”? It Could Be As Simple As Replacing The Brake Pedal — Space It Further Away From The Accel. Pedal And Make It “taller” So That There Can Be No Iteration Between The Two. Or, Simply Allow The Brake Light Signal To Interact With The Ecm To Inhibit Any “throttle Increase” Command To The Engine.
