Very Disappointed in gas mileage
By Kurt & Jean Flaig on
2005 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
My husband and I are basically very satisfied with our Rav 4 but are very disappointed in the gas mileage. We do not get anywhere near what was quoted. As a matter of fact, we are not getting much better than our full size AWD pickup which we traded for the Rav4. We are only averaging 19 - 20 miles per gallon and have even had it back to the dealer which they claim there is nothing wrong with our car. That was our main purpose for trading in our pickup, and that was the gas mileage.
Our insurance premiums went down considerably due to the safety of the car which we were surprised about, and that we do, feel very safe driving in it.
More compartment storage and it would be nice to have a fold out tray of some sort for those who eat while on the road so you have something to set your food or whatever else you might use it for. But mostly a bigger storage compartment.
