One minor issue is rattling sliding doors. Sounds like the rollers (ball bearings) are loose or need grease. It's temperature dependent.

brake rotors overheated and warped at 28000km. Dealer wanted to turn rotors but insisted rotors were faulty and should not warp at low kms. Dealer agreed and replaced 4 rotors under warranty. Remaining rear shock replaced on the opposite side. Left shock replaced earlier stopped the clunking noise. Right shock failed about 1 month later and clunking returned. 3rd row seat rattles when driving. Mechanics agreed and stated common problem and Toyota is aware, but no fix available.
