2007 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

problem #4

Mar 292016


  • 60,035 miles


On March 29, 2016, I was driving to work in the far left lane when a gentleman driving a green pickup truck come rushing up beside me. He was waving at me pointing down at the right front side of my Toyota. I thought that maybe I was driving on a flat tire and didn't realize it so I rolled down the window. He yelled as he was still pointing down at the front of my Toyota "your car is on fire". he got ahead of me and I pulled over to the right shoulder of the freeway. He got out of his truck and ran back to my 2007 Toyota Rav4 and said "MA'am, you better get your purse and things and get out, your car is on fire". at that time, smoke was pouring out somewhere up front on the passenger side by the tire. I got my things and we moved to the back of my Toyota when at that time, it went up in flames. I took care of that vehicle because I can not afford another. My last oil change was in November 2015 with only 50035 miles on the vehicle. When it was last inspected, everything was fine. So I am not understanding how this happened. Tires were about a year old as well. Car just don't catch on fire driving down the freeway. On April 4, 2016 a friend and I took a drive to my burnt vehicle and she could not believe that was my Toyota. And I could not believe I had walked away without any injuries. There is no engine, no dashboard, no steering wheel, no front seats, and no back seats. All burned! how could this happen?

The drivers side heated leather seats become excessively hot and they have to be shut off while in use. Afraid of fire- or electrical malfunction.

After going through a puddle a plastic hose below driver seat broke. I replaced it from a dealer for $178. After a month or so check engine, vsc and 4WD lights came on. Checked with dealer and seems some problem with the charcoal cannister. And the cost to repair is around $1200. I am not sure why this much damage just by driving the car in a puddle? very bad quality from Toyota.
