Problems with the Electrical System

As a top SUV pick, the electrical system in the RAV4 should be top-notch, but it’s not.

One Edmunds review points out, “Neither my wife or I were able to get the Toyota Scout GPS navigation app to work.”

It appears that there are many other electrical system issues occurring, many of which Toyota isn’t hiding. For example, Service Bulletin #T-TT-0593-20 Rev says that the Remote Connect may not work right for customers trying to send out commands. If a new vehicle can’t provide all of the features it claims to, is it worth its cost? Not according to many customers, who feel it’s time to create new adventures without the RAV4.

Problems with the Fuel System

The fuel system works hand-in-hand with the engine to propel the SUV forward, yet this system is failing to perform.

One Edmunds review states, “The fuel tank warning light comes on when the car still has over 4 gallons of gas remaining in the tank. This was confirmed by checking fuel fill versus tank size and also running vehicle well past warning light. The warning light appears to mislead drivers and is inaccurate. The actual range of the vehicle is misleading with this warning light.”

Not only are there fuel system issues, but Service Bulletin #T-SB-0104-21 also says that there are serious engine issues. The 2022 Toyota RAV4 can deal with milky oil, low oil pressure and the Check Engine Light. These problems could be caused by blow-by gases that condense and accumulate in the engine oil after taking short trips. At this point, customers either need to drive their RAV4s for excessive amounts of time or they need to have an adventure with another vehicle. Looks like many drivers will be jumping ship in the near future.
