Question about 2008 Toyota RAV4
Well, probably not.
Since the early 1980's, most cars now have front wheel drives, which include 2 short drive shafts, and each one of those has 2 CV joints, one at each end.
Any one of those four CV joints can break anytime.
A new or rebuilt axle/cv joint set is usually good for about 80-K miles.
Other than regular inspections by a mechanic ( for example, twice a year), the only other precaution to take to eliminate breakdown such as your dtr had would be to have her learn to listen for sounds of problems with the car.
This might mean to turn off the radio, turn off the A/C, roll down all the windows, and be in the car by yourself with no one to talk to, and listen for unusual noises.
A problem here is, if you have not been doing this, you would not know what to listen for!
God bless your efforts.

SOURCE: front drive train or axles?
Welcome to fixya
could be one of those but lets hope not it could also be the front bearings if it is the bearings it runs around 300 to fix if it is drive train or axles your talking a lot more money
OH check the break pads just thought of that if the pads are low it will make a noise to pull wheels off and check breaks first
hope this helps you out have a good day :)

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..
