Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 152007

RAV4 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


All 2007 Rav4 V6 engines have a whistling noise coming from the brakes vacuum boost line either at idle or especially louder when applying the brakes on and off at idle speed. My Toyota dealer is aware of this problem and have only noted that they have filed a case# with Toyota to help resolve this issue. Only until 100's of other 07 Toyota Rav4 V6 owners complain, will Toyota dealers fix the problem by coming up with a part in the brakes vacuum boost line to silent this annoying whining noise at idle/start up while applying brakes on and off.
