Two Days Out
By Wolfgong on


2010 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


2010 RAV4 4WD (4432C). CF FE MF QV. 101 miles the TPS light began to flash. Then stayed on. I checked the tires, they are not low. I slightly overfilled the tires and the light went out. 174 miles the TPS light goes back on again. Tires are not low. Rattles are everywhere; like surround sound. Front seats lack thigh support, again. The value of the display button on the steering wheel is comical. So far I'm not convinced this is a worthy effort by Toyota. This specific vehicle was made in Japan.

Best Features

Forward sight lines. Steering wheel tilt/telescope allows good driver fit. Smooth engine performance. Steady pull when accelerating. Low rolling resistance. Tracks well at highway speed. I don't have fuel numbers yet. Compare RAV4 1996:2010, HP 120:179, MPG 19:21. Not bad efficiency.

Worst Features

Lose the tire on back and implement overhead hatch door. Go back to physical cable for accelerator; the electronic one lacks feedback/feel. Make sure interior design includes mitigating rattles as priority. Lose the 'fat key' remote. Allow 4WD lock to stay active above 25 mph. Simplify design.
