2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Like most Toyota sedans or SUVs, this RAV4 is so completely reliable that in 30 months I have not spent a single penny outside of normal oil changes. And the gas mileage is fantastic. Living in AZ we averaged about 38 mpg and here in SC about 36. For the money a fantastic SUV.

2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

We bought the car Sept.2016 and loved it until now with service regarding the AC drain. Apparently, due to the design of the AC unit, when the AC drain gets clogged, the water that should drain out of the AC unit will back up under the rug and under the mats of the driver and passenger seats until you discover the water. Bringing it to Toyota to find out what happened was a real eye opener. Apparently this happens alot, and no, they do not check the drain when you bring it in for the checkups. We were told that the only thing Toyota would do for us would be to dry out the carpet. Replacing the carpet is not covered under any warranty or extended warranty and it would cost $1000 to replace the carpeting. Toyota suggested we contact our car insurance agent to see about having the car insurance pay for the replacement of the carpeting as that would be covered (of course minus the deductible). What a scam! Toyota knows how to get away with not fixing a problem by having another company pay for it. We are not happy. We will never buy another Toyota again.

Review

This is a good car. It could be a great car. Some of the placements where they chose to place buttons on the dash are inconceivable. The buttons for EV, sport and eco get blocked if you have a drink cup int the holder! The cup holders are so small I had to buy special size thermos’ so it would fit. There are only 2 cup holders and a weird design to boot. If you want to pop the gas cap you have to open the drivers door to pop it open. The cargo space WOULD be huge if they designed it without an elevated holder for tire changing tools right in the middle of the car! The side worked fine inside the wall of the older models. Also the back seats do not recline flat. The windshield wipers on Fast mode are not fast enough in a heavy rainfall. The defroster doesn’t work well with the combo of summer humidity and air conditioning, you have to turn the heat on to clear your view. Traction on turns even with great tires are ok. Hybrid doesn’t gain more miles but helps in a pinch to make it to the station if you’re running low on gas. The ride is comfortable just wish the bucket seats were made for big American butts and not Japanese butts. Don’t get me wrong I love my RAV4 but these small design fixes would make my big American Butt who also uses cargo load/in/out on a regular basis much happier.

Review

Great car. Replaced Toyota Highlander and not disappointed at all. Very comfortable ride, with all the bells and whistles. I've taken two long road trips and have really enjoyed the comfort and conveniences of the RAV4. I thought it would be too small, but Toyota has done a wonderful job upgrading this vehicle in 2016. And the hybrid gives me great mileage. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to friends and family.
