I owned a highlander before my rav4. It was older, a 2002, but it was also a Toyota. It got totaled when a pick-up-truck hit the passenger side door, one night, where my mother was sitting. We both walked away completely fine, not even whiplash, and the airbags didn't have to deploy. This car, at the time, was over 15 years old. Having the 'smaller model' now, I like it more mine is a 2011, so it a fair bit newer than the 2002 highlander. I like the higher mile per gallon, the carrying capacity has not been an issue yet, and it looks sporty. On that note if there are any design/higher-ups reading this: bring back the rear mounted tire.

The size of the trunk is really the best part of the whole car as it can fit quite a bit if you put down the back seats. The car is also not huge but not tiny either so if you are looking for a smaller crossover type vehicle then this would be a great fit.

It drives great but the air conditioning vents are only in the front so it is hot for passengers in the back. The middle counsel is short and not really an armrest so it is uncomfortable if you drive with your right hand. The Bluetooth is spotty and connect and disconnect frequently. The seats are light color fabric so stains are extremely noticeable. The middle seat in the rear is a tiny half seat that is not comfortable at all so really only seats 4 people comfortably. The trunk is huge and great for when we need to make long road trips or transport bulky items.

My RAV4 is a pretty great small SUV, it has pretty good fuel economy. Its small enough that I don't feel like I am driving a tank but big enough that anyone riding in my car has leg room. It's easy to drive and has 4 wheel drive so I can get out of most situations like lots of snow or really rough terrain. My only drawback is that its a 4 cylinder and it shows because it can get moving quickly but after 60 it slows down and just takes a while to go any faster but other than that it's a great all around vehicle and if you get in an accident it is pretty good.

Seat Belts Feb 19, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 19, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V096000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 RAV4 vehicles manufactured July 28, 2005, to December 19, 2012, and 2012-2014 RAV4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. In the event of a frontal collision, the rear seat belts for the outboard seats may be cut by the seat cushion frame.
Consequence:
A cut seat belt may not properly restrain the seat occupant, increasing their risk of injury in a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will install a protector over both rear seat cushion frames, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not currently available. Owners were sent interim notification letters on March 16, 2016. A second notice will be mailed when parts are available. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is G0F.

Suspension > Rear Aug 1, 2012
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 1, 2012
NHTSA Campaign:
12V373000
Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2011 RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS250h passenger vehicles manufactured from October 2005 through September 2010. If the nuts for adjusting the rear wheel alignment are improperly tightened during service, the rear suspension arm (rear tire rod) may develop unwanted movement and rust leading to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the rear tire rod will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.
Consequence:
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota is currently developing the remedy and will provide a notification schedule when it becomes available. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331 or Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.

Air Bags > Side/window Jan 31, 2012
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 31, 2012
NHTSA Campaign:
12V029000
Summary:
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 RAV4 VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM NOVEMBER 24, 2011, THROUGH DECEMBER 19, 2011. IN THE CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAGS, PROPELLANT WITH THE INCORRECT SPECIFICATION WAS USED FOR THE INITIATOR ASSEMBLED IN THE AIRBAG INFLATOR. IN THIS CONDITION, THE INFLATOR MAY NOT PERFORM PROPERLY, CAUSING ONE OR BOTH CURTAIN SHIELD AIRBAGS TO NOT DEPLOY.
Consequence:
IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE AIRBAGS MAY NOT DEPLOY AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PROPERLY PROTECT AN OCCUPANT, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURIES.
Remedy:
TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL CHECK THE VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER TO IDENTIFY THE CURTAIN SHIELD ASSEMBLIES AND REPLACE THE ASSEMBLIES AS NECESSARY WITH NEW ONES FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EARLY MARCH 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

Visibility Oct 22, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V689000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Company (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Tundra, Sequoia, Corolla, Corolla Matrix and Scion xB, 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, 2007 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2006-2011 RAV4, 2006-2010 Yaris, and 2009-2010 Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles. During the manufacturing of the Power Window Master Switch (PWMS), grease lubricant may have been inconsistently applied to the sliding electrical contacts.
Consequence:
If the sliding electrical contacts are not protected by lubricant, debris and moisture that get into the switch may cause a short circuit and the switch assembly may overheat and melt, increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the switch, applying a lubricant if no abnormality is found. If abnormality is found, the PWMS circuit board will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is C0M.

Suspension Aug 28, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 28, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V383000
Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2011 RAV4 and 2010 Lexus HS250h passenger vehicles manufactured from October 2005 through September 2010. If the nuts for adjusting the rear wheel alignment are improperly tightened during service, the rear suspension arm (rear tire rod) may develop unwanted movement and rust leading to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the rear tire rod will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.
Consequence:
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tie rods and replace any that have rust or corrosion on the alignment adjustment threads. All of the rear tie rods will then be encased in an epoxy to prevent future environmental damage. Due to limitations in parts, the recall remedy will be launched in phases from September 2013 through February 2014. All owners will receive notification of the recall, with most receiving second notifications when parts are available in their area. IMPORTANT: This recall supersedes Toyota and Lexus recall 12V-373. All vehicles that have been inspected and remedied under the previous recall need to be reinspected and have the appropriate remedy applied.

Visibility/wiper Sep 18, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 18, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V577000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 RAV4 vehicles manufactured October 27, 2008, to December 19, 2012 and 2012-2014 RAV4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, water may drip onto the joint that connects the wiper linkage to the wiper motor.
Consequence:
Over time, the dripping water may cause corrosion and wear at the joint, potentially resulting in the separation of the wiper linkage. Once this occurs, the wipers would not function, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the water diverter channel. In addition, a new wiper linkage with a wiper motor crank arm will be installed. The wiper linkage will have a protective cover over the wiper linkage joint to minimize water splash and a retainer ring to prevent the wiper arm from separating from the wiper motor. The recall is expected to begin by November 16, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota's customer service number at 1-800-331-4331.

Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Toyota RAV4 vehicles manufactured October 31, 2005, to September 7, 2010, and 2010 Lexus HS250h vehicles manufactured July 6, 2009, to August 26, 2010. The affected vehicles have rear suspension arms (rear tie rods) with adjusting lock nuts that may have been improperly tightened after servicing. As a result of being loose, the arm may have thread damage and may rust, possibly leading to the failure of the arm and an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.
Consequence:
Failure of the rear tie rod could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace both rear suspension arms and encapsulate the locknuts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 30, 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's numbers for this recall are G0V for Toyota vehicles and GLK for Lexus vehicles. Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-383, in which some vehicles were only inspected, sealed, and did not have both arms replaced. The affected vehicles were previously recalled under 13V-383, but did not have both rear suspension arms replaced at that time. Those vehicles need to have both arms replaced as part of this recall remedy.
