2013 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
We've had the Toyota RAV 4 Limited AWD since May 2013. Going from a Honda Pilot to this car took some getting used to. We haven't owned anything other than Honda's since 1987. We test drove Honda's, Hyundai's, Mazda's and we settled on the new RAV 4 as being the most practical vehicle for the money. We didn't spring for the extra $1100 for navigation. Our phones can get us where we need to go for no extra charge.
All in all, we like the car and would recommend it
Power liftgate, gas mileage, sound system, exterior design, wet roads handling, turning radius, minimal road noise, bluetooth, interior room front and back, large storage space in rear, leather(like) trim comfort and style, steering wheel controls (radio/bluetooth), brake assist
Muffler is loud, not enough storage space and cup holders in the front, many hard surfaces to clean, hard surfaces cheapen the interior design, power tailgate button and sport mode buttons hard to reach (must take your eyes off the road), rear camera display difficult to see with sunglasses on, stiffer ride with Bridgestone Dueller's. Recommend a quieter muffler with a chrome tailpipe, tires that make the ride smoother, lower the cost of the navigation system, soften the interior hard surfaces. Please place more storage and cup holders near the console.
