Get the CR-V
By palaginghuli on


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


I got the front wheel drive Limited.
This was a replacement for my 2008 Honda CR-V.
I've always been a Honda customer.
I thought I'd try the Toyota after seeing a brand new exterior and the spare tire is no longer visible in the back.
I've had it only for a little over a month.
Although it is nice to look at (exterior and interior), you can tell it is the cheaper version of the CR-V.
The handling feels like a toy car. The ride is also bumpier.
The "leatherette" I am sure will wear off much faster than a leather.
It also stains very easily especially if oil based.
Even pens stain and is very hard to remove.
Also not as good visibility.
Women will find the CR-V much easier to drive

Best Features

It is pleasing to the eye in appearance.

Worst Features

Navigation, navigation. Did I say navigation? Do not waste your money! I am not sure who was the genius who designed this piece of junk. The background was gray, it is almost impossible to see anything under any lighting, especially in the daytime. The font! In white with shadow. I dare anyone who can read it! What is wrong with white background and black font? It increases visibility. And the annoying thing is you can't change them! And to be able to enter the address, you would have been involved in an accident before you can enter it. I believe, Toyota spent the least amount of money for the biggest amount profit for this, just so they can say it has a Navigation system.
