I mean it - the MPG is the fly in the otherwise stellar ointment here.
I drive conservatively but with a mix that's heavy on hwy miles vs. city, I'm straining to get to 23 average.
As the MPG rating was what initially drew me to the RAV4, I'm disappointed, but I still love to get into it each day and drive.
It practically drives itself, feels like a car, and doesn't lack power with the 4-cylinder.
You'll want to go with the air deflector if you get a sunroof; I regret it and will be looking into after-market, since there's a lot of wind noise.
Easy to find semi-custom seat covers that fit well; handling is superb; 4-wheel drive works great in mountains; USB/MP3 jacks well-placed so cup holders can be used; good deal of storage below level in back; Toyota Care Plan.
More adjustments for driver seat needed in base model; fuel economy needs help.
