Great except for bluetooth...

2014 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


The Rav 4 is a responsive, small SUV and well appointed. The auto liftgate is handy and all the features you might want are available in the Limited. HOWEVER, if you have an I-Phone 4, you will not be able to load the contacts from your phone on to the bluetooth system! Wish they had told us that the contacts would load on the base models, but NOT their top of the line model. If this is important to you, and it should be, look elsewhere.

Best Features

1-Heated Seats 2-Auto Liftgate 3-Auotomatic dimming mirror

Worst Features

Toyota, make the phone system in the Limited compatible with the I-Phone 4! In 2012, when the 2013 Rav 4 Limited came out, the I-phone 4 was the most owned version. How could the bluetooth system not function properly with that phone? The 2013 and 2014 models have the same glitch. Whats the use of having bluetooth in 2014 if you can't voice dial a contact?

I bought a 2014 RAV 4 XLE FWD in April. I have driven this car in city and on highway trips. No matter what I do, I cannot get an MPG higher than 24 mpg. This car was rated at 31 highway and I have never achieved that level. I think I have a lemon. The dealer refuses to address the problem. I think Toyota has falsified their claims on mpg.

I get awful static on my 2013 Limited with a Samsung; strange, because our 2012 was fine with the same phone! It was in svc 2 full days with them calling CA tech support; the answer oddly was that the 2013 nav systems worked fine, and in 2014, new no-nav software fixed the problem. We found a way to live with it till the lease is up...
