The Car Is A 2017 toyota rav4 Xle Awd. The Car Was A Replacement Vehicle For A 2015 toyota rav4 Xle Awd That Had Non Reparable electrical Issues And Was Replaced By toyota By An Arbitration Decision. The First Day I Drove The Car The Passive Safety Sense System Activated While On The Freeway When A Car Passed Me On The Left Side. Luckily No One Was Behind Me Or Their Would Have Been An Serious Accident. I Traded The Car Off 9 Days Later At A Loss Due To Complete Lack Of Trust In Any toyota Product. The Manufacturer And The Dealer Treated Be Horribly On The Previous Car That I Will Never Own Another toyota Again Ever.

While Driving On Cruise Control At The Posted Speed Limit Of 65 Mph, My Rav 4 Came To An Abrupt Dead Stop With No Warning. There Was Not A Car In Front Of Mine, But A Car Was Stopped In A Median To My Left Facing The Opposite Direction Of My Car. I Could Only Assume That My Rav 4 Apparently Sensed That Car When It Came To A Sudden Dead Stop. I Had No Idea What Was Happening To My Car And Thought The Engine Had Shut Off. A Passenger With Me, Who Is A Witness To This Event, Is An Owner Of A Rav 4 Se Without The Safety Sense/pre-collision System. We Were Shook Up By This Because Had There Been A Car Or Semi Truck Trailer Behind Us, We Could Have Been Seriously Injured Or Even Killed. I Reported This Incident To The Dealer, toyota Of Warren, Where We Purchased The New Car, And After A Day In Service, They Said The Car Was Working Fine With The Sensors Aligned Correctly. I Was To Let Them Know If This Situation Occurred Again, And It Did. In Another Incident, Again While Using The Cruise Control And With No Car In Front Of Mine, A Car In The Passing Lane Went By Me At Approximately 80 Mph To My 65 Mph. My Car Came To A Dead Stop. Thank God There Was Not A Car Behind Me At The Time, Or A Serious Accident Could Have Occurred. After Doing Research On This Safety Problem That We Experienced, We Found A Number Of Reports Concerning This Very Situation Happening With Their Rav 4

My 2017 rav4 Is Not Safe To Drive At Night. The Car Is A Lease And Was Brand New When I Got It. It Had Less Than 100 Miles, When This Started Happening. When I Have My Headlights On At Night They Seem To Cap Off. This Allows Me To Only See Through The Bottom Half Of My Windshield. The Upper Half Goes Pitch Black. It Is Extremely Unsafe Because It Impairs My Vision. This Is A Reoccurring Event And Happens When The Car Is In Motion. It Started In November Of 2016, And I Have Stopped Driving At Night Because Of How Dangerous It Is.

The Cruise Control On My 2016 rav4 Le Awd With 6 Speed Automatic Transmission Is Very Erratic. At Highway Speed (60-70 Mph) It Is Fine On A Flat Road, But At The Slightest Incline Will Downshift To Fifth, Then Slam Into Fourth Gear With The Engine Rpms Going Up To Over 4000. It Will Then Either Stay Downshifted Or Constantly Shift Up And Down Until I Am Well Over The Top Of The Hill. The Dealer Said They All Do That, So It’s Normal. I’ve Stopped Using The Cruise Because I’m Concerned About Possible Engine And Transmission Damage From The Harsh Shifting And High Rpms, But It Also Is Very Distracting To The Driver Which Makes It A Safety Issue. I’ve Complained To “ask toyota” Customer Service Twice. They Just Say They’ll Pass Along My Complaint To The Proper Department.

Highway-warning 1 On Apx 4/4 Monday (9 Days After Purchase) “check toyota Park Assist Have vehicle Checked By A Dealer” The Cause Was Snow On Sensors….since We Are In Montana There Will Be Snow On Sensors At Least 8 Months A Year. 4. Highway-warning 2 On Apx 4/18/16 “awd System Malffunction 2 Wheeldrive Mode Engaged Dealer Said Loose Gas Cap Caused This. 5. Hiway-apx 4/12/16-4/14/16 I Was Passing A Double Car Hauler. The Car Hauler Was Going About 50-60 On Incline Around A Corner. I Was Going 80 (speed Limit) With 2 vehicles Behind Me At The Same Speed. We Were All Passing The Car Hauler. All Of A Sudden Warning Sounds In Front Of Car Went Off And Car Braked To Almost An Immediate Stop Then Alarms In Back Of Cars Were Going Off Because The Cars Behind Me Were Coming Up On My Rear. I Pressed The Gas And The Brake And Nothing, Turned The Wheel Toward Left And Car Started To Go. I Am Fearful Of This vehicle. I Am A Widow And Am Afraid To Put My Children In It. I Parked The Car After This Incident And Contacted toyota Manufacturer. They Rejected Repurchase. I Had Been In Constant Contact With Dealer (over 20 Logged Calls And Almost 100 Texts) They Offered To Trade vehicle At $28k For A vehicle That Was 2 Weeks Old. I Owed $34k On It. That Is A Loss Of $6000 In 2 Weeks On A vehicle With Safety Issues. The Car Had 63 Miles On It When I Drove It Off The Lot, I Drove From Dealership To Home Which Was 225+ Miles. Then I Commuted From Home To New Job From (80 Miles Each Way To Work) From March 28-april 18=16 Work Days And 1 Or 2 Overtime Days/visit Friends (3,168 Miles) I Am At About 3,300 Miles Now.

The Rav 4 Has An Aggressive Idle Speed Which Cause The Car To “creep” Forward When Stopped. If Excess Force Isn’t Applied To The Brake, The Car Will Move Forward At Stop Lights Etc. I Initially Reported The Problem To toyota Of Vacaville Ca. On 8/25/216. I Had Rented A toyota Corolla While The Dealership Investigated The Problem Along With Routine Maintenance. The Report Came Back That The Car Operated Normally. I Then Asked To Do A “test Drive” With The Chief Mechanic. We Went Out In The Corolla First To A Flat Level Location In The Parking Lot. After Stopping The Car I Released The Brake To Demonstrate How Docile The Car Reacted When The Brake Was Released. We Then Got Into My Rav 4 And Returned To The Same Location. I Repeated The Process And Noted With The Mechanic How Much More Aggressive The Rav Reacted When The Brake Was Released. My Assumption Is That The Idle Is Set Too High Which Causes This Problem Of “creeping” While Stopped. The Mechanic Agreed That It Appeared More Aggressive But Wanted To Do Further Testing, So On 8/28/2017 I Returned The Car To The Dealership. The Mechanic Test Drove Another Rav 4 And Did A Time Test On How Fast It Went From Point A To Point B. He Repeated The Process With My Car. His Report Stated That Both Rav ‘s Performed The Same. Unsatisfied With The Testing Done At The Dealership I Called toyota Customer Care On 8/30/207 And Stated My Concern. I Was Told That The Dealership Could Not Adjust The Idle On The Car Because That’s The Way The Car Was Designed And To Change It Would Void The Warranty. So toyota Engineered Into The Rav 4 A Problematic Idle Speed? I Feel This Is A Safety Issue And One Day I Will Rear End Someone. I Have Owned Over 30 toyotas During My Life, Rented Hundreds Of Cars During My Career And Have Never Had A Car Respond The Way This Rav 4 Does.

My 2016 rav4 Le Comes With A Side View Mirror That Has A Built In Non-adjustable Blind Spot Mirror. This Blind Spot Mirror Does Not Show The Blind Spot Area. It Shows An Area Two Lanes Away From The Vehicle. Page 154 Of The rav4 Owners Manual Erroneously Indicates This Additional Mirror Is A Blind Spot Mirror And Has A Diagram Erroneously Showing How It Functions.the Blind Spot Mirror Is Misleading And Dangerous. I Discussed This With The toyota Dealership And They Said I Needed To Get Approval From The toyota Corp. To Replace The Glass Mirror Insert. toyota Corp Refused My Request And Told Me To File A Complaint With Nhtsa. Attached Is A Sequence Of Three Pictures Showing How The Blind Spot Mirror Doesn’t Show An Approaching Vehicle Until It Is Too Late. This Is Particularly Confusing And Dangerous At Night. You Get To See Headlights From Two Lanes Over And Not The Headlights Actually Approaching You. A toyota Person Told Me I Should Have Bought The $8000 More Expensive 2016 rav4 Which Is The Only Way To Get The Side View Mirrors With Sensors. This Is A Bad Way To Make Money. All I Want Is For toyota To Authorize The Use Of The Interchangeable Glass Mirror Inserts Used On Previous Year rav4 Vehicles And To Stop Installing The Dangerous Side View Mirrors With Built In Non-adjustable Blind Spot Mirrors. The Vision Is Poor On The rav4 And toyota Should Have Reasonably Priced The Sensors And Vision Items For All Models Instead Of Only Making These Safety Items Available On Vehicles Loaded With High Price Features. toyota Needs To Put Safety First. I Have High Regard For toyota And Previously Purchased Three toyota Vehicles That Were Extremely Good And Lasted A Long Time. They All Had Great Visibility.

After Leaving A Restaurant With Our Grandchild Getting Into Our 2016 toyota rav4 Vehicle, Glass Started Falling Off The Back Of The Roof As We Pulled Out On The Hightway. It Appears That Possibly A Four Doors Closing Close To The Same Time Shattered Our Sunroof. I Took The Vehicle To Lombard toyota In Lombard, Il Where They Deemed It “road Damage At Highway Speed”. I Corrected The Service Rep To Clarify We Were Just Taking Off From The Restaurant After Getting Into The Car. The Remaining Glass Was Pushed Upward And Not Inward. This Is Obviously A Defective Sunroof On The rav4, But Neither The Local Dealership Nor The toyota Customer Service Representative Will Take Responsibility. After Close To Two Weeks Unable To Drive The Car, I Just Picked It Up Yesterday. The Bill–$1400 I See Other Sunroof Have Been Reported Blowing Up. Thankfully, We Had Inside Door Closed.
