    Toyota RAV4 burning a lot of oil

    It seems Toyota quality may be a fantasy for those of us stuck with certain models with a known engine problem. I could never understand why my wife's 2006 RAV4 burned oil since the first day we owned it. I add a quart at 1,000 mile intervals, and have so for the past 6 years. Now at 142,000 miles (and 142 or so quarts later - just think what that cost) we're up to a quart every 700 miles. There is a service bulletin and basically Toyota did a great job keeping this under wraps until AFTER most of us passed the 60,000 mile point on the powertrain warranty. Then the service bulletin came out ... in 2011!

    We are not happy campers. We own 4 Toyota vehicles. Others in our circle of family and friends own about 100 more. They're all watching how this plays out with us. Guess how much bad press that equals?

    Toyota is not the company it once was. It's quality has really gone downhill. Sadly, contact with Toyota has been futile. Looks like we're done with Toyota...
