Gas Pedal Recall Unsettling
By froggie on
2010 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
PRO- Goes in the Snow! This vehicle was great this winter. Handles good. Back seat reclines and folds flat. Pick-up very good. Gas mileage OK. Fabulous visibility when backing up etc., CON- Very upset about the gas pedal recall. Purchased vehicle mid January 2010 and recall happened shortly afterward. Ouch! Do not like the front cup holder positions. Cups block power plug. Would like air/heater controls for rear seats. Would prefer the rear door to hinge upward instead of opening to the side. Really needs some basic lumbar controls. Overall would have given a much higher rating if it never had the gas pedal recall but it has caused so much anxiety that I don't think as highly of Toyota now
Reclining back seats. Traction in the snow is great.
SMART BRAKING SYSTEM - Please! Hinge back door upwards instead of to the side. Move the cup holders in the front. Lumbar adjustment for drive.
