Poor in Snow, Item Fall Out Tailgate
By Anne on
2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this SUV last winter. The "run flat" tires are very poor in snow. Need snow tire alternative in "run flat" tire, as there is no room for spare tire. Also, buyer beware that when one opens tailgate items fall out onto the ground. I warn that a small child could be seriously injured if standing nearby when the door was swung open, because items, large and small fall right out of SUV. Watch those toes!
Looks, gas mileage, visibility.
Provide way to keep things from falling from SUV when one opens tailgate. Improve lumbar support of seats. Provide removable carpets, like my old CRV. Work with Bridgestone to develop run- flat snow tires.
