If anyone has any window rattles/ticks, PLEASE bring it in to a Toyota Dealership so that it is documented, otherwise Toyota will not come up with a TSB for this problem.

I have checked several 2006 Rav4 (4 Wheel Drive) vehicles. Most of these were either V6 Sport/Limited & couple of I4's.
Everyone has had a window rattle. Some were more severe than others, but they all had some window rattles/ticks.

Toyota needs to come up with a fix as dealers cannot resolve this problem.

The windows definitely have too much play compared to other vehicles that I have checked including a 2004 Rav4 which was very tight.

Are you referring to a window rattle when the door is closed, or during driving?

My has a little rattle when opened and the door is closed, and my 1999 Camry did the same thing.

During driving, with the window open slightly.

Are you getting the same thing?

Toyota never corrected the infamous rattle on the 4.2. They tried on my 2003 RAV 4 L but it returned every winter. Traded my RAV 4 in and now drive a 2006 Corolla S. The RAV 4 was overall a great vehicle but I love the gas mileage on the Corolla S!

The Rav is back at the service department to have the drivers window run replaced, along with the struts and wheel bearings.

I don't think that this is a new production window run as I asked the shop foreman & he said it is the same one.

The service department manager indicated to me last week that these issues are minor (window rattle & strut issue, paint discolouration).

He said these things will get worked out but may take a few months.

I am having my doubts about buying this 1st year vehicle.
It seems I have spent endless amounts of time dealing with problems.
