2nd Rav 4... love it... with a few concerns...
By rosco804 on


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


I had a 2009 Toyota Rav4 which I really liked... I am one of the few that like the rear swing open door... my wife takes our two golden retrievers with her to work and it was very easy to get the old guy (13 years old, blind, deaf
but still loving life) into and out of the back with the wide door and low floor...

to jump right to it.... I love the 2013 which I bought in the U.S. (yes I am Canadian, and the Rav4 is made 20 minutes from where I live but I saved almost $7,000 in the U.S.)

my concern is the exterior black plastics... when they get dirty and you wash them and then the car dries off, the dirt marks still show !!! has anyone else experienced this? please let me know. thx

Best Features

navigation, power rear hatch and rear back up camera all all great... really love the two memory location for the power driver seats...

Worst Features

as I was saying, the exterior black plastic that runs around the bottom of the car, as well as the bumper.. I cant get the dirt marks off.... seems to be cheap plastic... as well, inside the drivers side rear wheel well, it is lined with a type of fabric than you would usually find inside a vehicle, like what you would find in a trunk on the sides, where the pieces are molded to fit to cover up the inside of a trunk to make it look complete... does anyone find this weird that it is on the outside of the vehicle? any comments would be appreciated...

Thank you for your review. Currently I have 2010 RAV 4 and also like the rear door that swings out. Do you like the 2013 version better than the 2009? How is the cargo room compared to the 2009 version? I can't decide whether to buy the new style RAV 4 or change models completely.
