I have owed the 2013 RAV4 since June 2013. I love, love, love this car!!! Get good gas milage; 26 city; 31 hwy. The Toyota Care is outstanding. The only complaint I have is the upholstery. I bought what I thought was leather but it turns out to be Soft Tech which is a vinyl. The color is beige and stains very easily. Seats have blue jean staining and it will not come off! The dealership is no help on this issue. They "kinda" change the subject when I bring it up. I would buy the RAV4 again but would just go with the cloth seats unless genuine leather is offered.
Bluetooth and back up camera.
Offer genuine leather seats. Automatic seats as a standard.
I've owned the '96, '01, and '06 RAV 4's and loved everyone of them. Got over 100K out of each with no problems whatsoever. This '13 I just bought looks like it will beat all the others. It's more comfortable, has more guts, looks sharper, and rides quieter than the previous generations. The ride is a little stiff but I feel very secure in this vehicle. We also own a '12 Sienna, and this RAV is just as comfortable. I'm looking forward to many years of driving pleasure with this baby.
Quieter, more responsive handling than previous generation RAV's. Love the Bluetooth and backup camera which are standard. Interior is really sharp, classy. The 2.5 4 cylinder has plenty of guts getting me on the freeway with no problem. Yipeee, Toyota finally got rid of the rear external spare tire. This vehicle looks and rides great.
I just got my new Rav4 yesterday but have completely fallen in love with it.
I researched all the small SUV's and decided the Rav4 was the best value.
I wish the blind spot monitor was an option for the XLE.
Everyone that has seen it has commented on how it looks much more expensive than the $23,600 that we paid for it.
Bluetooth capability and the different driving modes that you can drive in.
Make the Blind Spot Monitor option available for the XLE.
This vehicle was a dream come true with all the proper bells and whistles.
Long have I dreamed of getting an compact SUV that does not drink gas like the regular SUVs. Toyota has made the right call by redesigning it into a competitive compact crossover, not only in design, but in features and personalization.
BT streaming, I have had the car not less than a week and I have only done bluetooth streaming. I only wish they included HD radio in standard features. That is the only thing I missed from my previous aftermarket BT stereo.
It doesn't differentiate iphone and ipod from an android in this feature as the new stereos have that detection capability, but not really missed.
None that I can think of as I drove sedans upto now and all I can say is this is very comfortable and relaxing to drive. Even for an SUV with 4 cylinder, it has a lot of power (torque) to pull out in front of the traffic from one light to the second.
I traded in my 2010 Tundra for the all new Rav4 and couldn't be happier! I LOVED my truck, but I DIDN'T love parking it, filling it up with gas, paying the $500 car tags every year, so on and so on. I am really loving all the money I have already saved, how easy it is to park and I am shocked at how comfortable the car and ride is in comparison to my Tundra (which I consider to be the best I've ever experienced). I am so happy I got the Rav4 and totally recommend it!
Surprisingly, I LOVE the back up camera. I really thought this feature was going to be lame, but it is so helpful (especially living in an apartment community). I also like the new iPod/ Aux jacks, the bluetooth connection... the whole touch screen set up, I guess! And I love having a sunroof again!
I could really live withouth the black interior. I have two dogs (which as of now have never even been in my car) and you can already see every speck of hair/ lint that has carried into the car from our clothing. We purchased the rubber cargo mat seperately because we could foresee the back just being covered in hair. I also don't really like the gear shift. It's kinda wonky and I always have to check what gear I'm in. But, I'm sure I'll get used to it.
