Honeymoon was over after 19500 miles

2009 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I got mine Dec. 2008 after long research and traveling for a deal. Got one (2Grands under invoice $).

Car's great to go uphills and snow, MPG(25+ hwy after 1year) and fun to drive, big cargo space. Many features like luxury equals.

As someone said, Road noise is terrible AND rolling on the road, just as a boat on the sea.
Dash design and cup holder location're stupid. i.e, you have to move the cup to push Emergency button or 4wheel lock button, audio power, & engine start button are all together with similar look so you have to be careful to push one of them, etc.

Battery died w/o any reason. Been at the dealer 3 times this month.
I lost one roof rail w/o using it(hwy? dealer?)

Best Features

Keyless entry rear view mirror great MPG 110V power outlet heated seat 5spd transmission

Worst Features

Control pannel designs. move wheel lock to transmission, send the clock to travel computer Emergency button shouldn't be bloked by cups,
