In recent months, numerous complaints about steering system issues have arisen from those who own or lease a 2016 Toyota Rav4 SUV. Concerns about the power steering function seizing up or failing to operate as intended have been reported, as well as worrisome reports that the steering wheel may become resistant and nearly impossible to move while the vehicles are in motion. Although the manufacturer has issued two separate auto safety recalls affecting this make and model, neither recall campaign addresses steering system failures.
The driver ofa. 2016 Toyota Rav4 SUV recently reported that their steering wheel has become “sticky” on several occasions. When this happens, the driver has an extremely hard time operating the steering wheel, as they have to push back against a resistant wheel that refuses to turn as intended. The driver reported that they have almost collided with other vehicles or obstacles because of this issue, and they are hesitant to drive their vehicle out of safety concerns. For now, many customers await clear explanations and lasting fixes to these steering system defects.
