2008 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Purchased this 08 base RAV at the end of October. It's now 7 months old and this is an update to an earlier post. The front upholstery continues to pill and fuzz and just look really, really bad. The back seats are fine since they are hardly used. I have an 8 year old car that looks better inside than this one. It took a certified letter to Toyota for Toyota to tell my dealer they would help them solve the problem. They've offered custom seat covers, but that was over a month ago and I'm still waiting to see if they match the rest of the interior. Wish I didn't like the handling and pep so much - it would be much easier to just get rid of the RAV.

Pep, handling, all the storage
