Love the 2013 RAV4

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


Bought XLE June 26 2013 and I love it!!! Have 2000 miles and get about 27 miles per gallon in city. Have not made any road trips yet. I am 5'11" and my husband is 6'2" and we both are quite comfortable. Vehicle has good pick up so no worries about merging onto interstate. Test drove Mazda CX5 and Honda CRV. RAV4 offered more options in the base price
and the cabin was not as noisy. Black carpet shows every speck of sand. Floor mats are a flimsy for the extra cost (nearly $300.00). Ordered an extra set online (must more cost friendly) to have on hand. "RAVen" (I have named her) is a real looker. Removal of "barn" rear door was the best thing ever!!!!

9/14/2016 Still love "RAVen". I have 45,0000 miles on her. She still looks and runs very well. I thought I ordered leather seats but they are not. The synthetic fabric stains easily and things like blue jean and ink from paper transfers are impossible to remove. Think Toyota should offer a choice of leather or the synthetic fabric. The gas millage is not as good as when she was new. Averages about 24 miles per gallon in city and a little more (28) on highway. Will be replacing her in January 2017, not because I have any issues, because I will be retiring and want a new vehicle. Would consider a RAV4 if the body style changes greatly.

3/15/2017 Gave car to my daughter. RAVen had approximately 53000 miles on her. She is still a great car and has had no issues other than routine maintenance. The dealer ship where the vehicle was purchased was outstanding. The body style did not change drastically since 2013; therefore; I bought a 2017 Nissan Rogue SV. This my last review is a resounding two (2) thumbs up!!!!!!!
