Toyota has gained widespread popularity thanks to its ability to offer drivers strong performance, steadfast durability, and affordable prices. However, if you're currently a proud owner of a RAV4 or Prius, or if you're in the process of shopping for a new car, it's important to be aware of the common problems that tend to come with these sought-after models.

What are the most common Toyota problems?

  • Suspension issues
  • Fuel pump malfunctions
  • Water pump failures
  • Oil build-up in the engine

Most common Toyota Camry problems

The Toyota Camry is known to experience various difficulties with its transmission, such as shifting gear problems, slow engagement, hesitation while accelerating, and slipping transmission. The vehicle is also susceptible to issues with fuel and oil efficiency, which are among the most commonly reported problems.
In addition, some Camry owners have reported issues with malfunctioning door locks, the presence of mold in the heating and A/C, and unanticipated damage to the rear windows.

Most common Toyota RAV4 problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1575 complaints: 607
Since its initial release in 2017, this SUV that is both efficient and practical has consistently received high ratings. Nevertheless, a significant number of RAV4 owners have voiced concerns about the vehicle’s transmission system, which can result in various problems ranging from sudden jerking while driving to delays when changing gears and shaking and slipping.
In addition, some RAV4 drivers have encountered issues with the engine’s cooling system, challenges with steering, and the excessive consumption of engine oil.

Most common Toyota Prius problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1130 complaints: 1455
The Toyota Prius is among the most widely recognized electric cars available, but it is also known for having many problems. Similar to other Toyota models, the Prius has been identified as a vehicle that consumes too much oil. In addition to this, users have reported problems with fuel gauges, issues with internal vehicle accessories, non-functional headlights, and engine-related problems such as overheating and stalling.
One of the most frustrating issues is fragile windshields of the Prius which are prone to breaking easily, with many drivers reporting that even small stones can cause significant damage.

Most common Toyota Tacoma problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1755 complaints: 1062
Tacoma owners are well aware of the frustrations that come with owning this car, as it has one of the highest average annual repair costs among Toyota vehicles. Common issues that drivers encounter include early wear and tear on the suspension system, which was widespread enough to prompt a recall for all 2001 to 2004 models.
Additionally, the transmission system may be unreliable, and the amber front parking lights are known to crack. The airflow meter, throttle position sensor, and starter are also susceptible to various problems and may need to be replaced altogether at times.

Most common Toyota Corolla problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1330 complaints: 1486
It’s a frequent occurrence to encounter Corolla owners who have experienced transmission malfunctions, excessive oil consumption, or faulty airbags. In addition to these typical problems that arise with many Toyota models, Corollas also tend to have issues with slow engine start-up, steering drift, and a defective mass airflow sensor.
The 2010 Corolla, in particular, presents more significant challenges as owners have reported needing to replace the entire engine to restore their car to working order.

The least reliable Toyota model: the 2009 Toyota Camry

Most common problem: Faulty transmission system

Despite receiving an 84/100 rating from J.D. Power, the 2009 Camry is known to experience various transmission issues and engine malfunctions. Additionally, some owners have reported problems with leaky power steering pumps, premature wear on the passenger-side motor mount, and steering mount leaks.

Furthermore, as the mileage on the car increases, the cost of repairs tends to go up as well. As a result, the average annual repair cost for the 2009 Camry is approximately AED1380.


The most reliable Toyota model: the 2018 Toyota Tundra

Most common problem: Faulty transmission system

While the 2018 Tundra is widely considered to be one of the most dependable Toyota models, it still has its share of problems. For example, the trailer brake system has been known to malfunction without warning. In addition, there have been various engine issues, including speed control problems and sudden stops, as well as electrical component failures that can trigger safety and warning lights at inappropriate times.

It’s worth noting that although the Tundra is highly reliable, repairs can be expensive, with an average annual cost of around AED1800.

Yasir Khan

As a personal trainer my schedule is tight. MySyara helped me schedule car washes while I was training my clients. The service was excellent and was a fan of not being in the usual car wash line.

I gave my Nissan Patrol to MySyara 2 days back for some maintenance work. They were so prompt professional and reasonable that it’s hard to believe. Entire operation was carried out by them in a spotless manner, right from picking up my car from my place, regular updates, suggestions and timely job completion and delivery. The team was simply superb, so courteous and friendly. Most definitely I will continue to use the services of MySyara always.
