Very poor mileage
By ledaebel on


2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I have had a problem with poor gas mileage since I first bought the car.
I am not happy having to get out of a warm car to put gas in the tank so frequently.
I have brought this problem to the dealer, the service dept, the regioal rep,
(BTY was very difficult to locate) and finally to phone "caseworker." The best mileage I got was 18.2 MG on the toll road.
Now, in the middle of winter 14.2.
Toyota says there is nothing wrong with the car.
Their reasoning is that I must use bad gas, it's winter, it's a 6 cyl, the EPA ratings are done under ultimate conditions and I should not expect that yype of mileage
I'm dumping this gas guzzler.
I had better mileage with my2007 6cyl Camry.

Best Features

side opeining back hatch.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage, a place to store purses Better rear vision.
