Darkened Dashboard/Speedometer
By dgambini on


2013 Toyota RAV4 XLE 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


The dashboard/speedometer is set back into a tunnel. In any other car when you turn the ignition key on the dashboard/speedometer illuminate. Not the case in the RAV4. It stays dark. So dark, that when you are driving downa tree lined street or on a cloudy day, its almost impossible to see the speedometer. This is a design flaw in the vehicle. I have to turn my night time lights on during the day to see the speedometer clearly. A very dangerous situation! I have tried talking to corporate in California and they will not do anything about this problem. I have not contacted the BBB, The Dept. Of
Consumer Affairs and the Attorney Generals office.

Tinny sounding car. You feel every bump. ILLUMINATE THE DASHBOARD
