2010 RAV4 4WD (4432C). CF FE MF QV. 101 miles the TPS light began to flash. Then stayed on. I checked the tires, they are not low. I slightly overfilled the tires and the light went out. 174 miles the TPS light goes back on again. Tires are not low. Rattles are everywhere; like surround sound. Front seats lack thigh support, again. The value of the display button on the steering wheel is comical. So far I'm not convinced this is a worthy effort by Toyota. This specific vehicle was made in Japan.
Forward sight lines. Steering wheel tilt/telescope allows good driver fit. Smooth engine performance. Steady pull when accelerating. Low rolling resistance. Tracks well at highway speed. I don't have fuel numbers yet. Compare RAV4 1996:2010, HP 120:179, MPG 19:21. Not bad efficiency.
Lose the tire on back and implement overhead hatch door. Go back to physical cable for accelerator; the electronic one lacks feedback/feel. Make sure interior design includes mitigating rattles as priority. Lose the 'fat key' remote. Allow 4WD lock to stay active above 25 mph. Simplify design.
