This vehicle has been great in every area thus far. We have owned it 1 year and have driven it 12,000 miles. Gas mileage ranges between 28 and 31 mpg. The only complaint we have had is that the 17" Continental tires that came with the vehicle beside being very poor quality are unsafe. The sidewall blew out on the right front while we were on the highway. Praise the Lord we did not have an accident . I went on line and checked Continental tire complaints and found out that we were one of many that have had the same experience. We had to purchase 4 new tires at 12,000 miles as the tread was also fairly low and yes the tire pressure had been checked on a regular basis and they were rotated as they should be. If Toyota wants to keep its good name they need to not worry so much about the bottom line and put quality tires on their vehicle to match the quality of their product. Toyota is not afraid to put a hefty price on their vehicles because they tout their quality, that should extend to tires also. Auto manufactures want top dollar and yet they put the cheapest tires they can find on their products. What is wrong with this picture?
2017 Toyota RAV4 SUV XLE 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
This is "Just a Car", offering nothing to make it stand out. We have owned this 2017 RAV4 for 13 months and have 8000 mi on it now. Wife would look at nothing else, sorry for that now. I was hoping we would grow to like it more, not so. It's OK, but you need to look at competition and compare. Drives well, has only standard safety stuff, interior is not any more than average. The longer we have it the less we like it. Too many "misses" on what it offers. Front seats are just average, carpet is cheep and everything sticks in the nap, visibility is not great out over the hood. Washed the RAV yesterday and find that the aluminum wheels are not easy to clean. Access to the spokes is limited. We have 4 cars with aluminum wheels and RAV wheels are the toughest to clean. Design team probably thought they looked cool, but did not think of maintenance required to clean. Front seats have limited adjustments. Driver seat launches you out if it is raised near its maximum. Passenger seat is too low, only adjustment is fore/aft. I want to sell now, wife will put up with it.
2017 Toyota RAV4 SUV Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Brought over a year ago, in March 2017. Car continues to be a gem to drive and own. Drove it on two summer vacations and average 29 MPG. RAV is fun and comfortable to drive. No problems entering freeways ETC. Car is very well equipped ... Limited, AWD with power lift gate, nagivation, hitch, leather ETC. Wife would like the passenger seat to be powered & the sound system to be easier to use. We have the cargo cover and the cargo net which we use all the time. This is our 4th RAV4 having owned a 2000, 2003 & 2008. All of them (limited AWD) are still on the road with the 2000 owned by a friend having 200000+ miles on it (& no major repairs). They have a great fine history of being a very reliable vehicle .
2017 Toyota RAV4 SUV SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Great car but this model requires the use of Toyota's @#$@! scout gps link navigation system. google maps works much better and is easier. I was driving a Nissian Frontier PU with 4 wheel drive (I live in Buffalo, NY) changing to the Rav4 didn't affect my winters. It goes in the snow. I truly enjoy the Rav4's comfort and steering. I feel comfortable on highways and on city streets. It can also cart around an impressive amount with the seats folded down. the rear reclining seats are much appreciated.
