Definition of practical while being affordable. All the bad reviews are because the geniuses who purchases them did no research. Auto Off engine kills your battery life, leaving it off is perfect. Packed with safety features, you want your kids in this car 100%. 28 mpg in the city and 35+ in 55 MPH zones. I get 38 mpg highway normally. Sure you can pay $35k+ for a hybrid, but this is well engineered already.
Rav 4 2020
2020 rav4 engine maintenance and they say is valve..$600 that is crazy.. Do not buy rav4 they say all rav 4 have this issue but it is not a recall..
Rav4 Battery dead at 2.5 years
Car would not start at 25500 miles and 2.5 years. Battery completely dead. Trying to get battery recharged. We drive car regularly, so there is NO reason for battery to be dead. Horrible situation to find car want start after only 2.5 years. Checking on a used Honda.
We just bought a 2020 Rav4 LE as a Toyota Certified car with 21,500 miles. We downsized (literally) from a 20 year old Sequoia, so we're getting accustomed to the smaller size. My only complaint is that the cup holders seem to be a bit awkward. I love the design and the all of the safety features and the handling while driving.
Re: Rav 4 purchase
I had a great experience when purchasing my new car. The says rep at Toyota of Lincoln Park, Edgar Rivera was extremely knowledgeable and professional.
a little bit expensive but worthy
only concern I have is the tire pressure sensor(s) are a little bit sensitive. This including the spare tire carried its own sensor. You only used spare tire once a while not daily. quality is good. no CVT transmission problems for Adventure model. The 4 wheels drive for adventure is amazing drove in heavy rain Floody conditions without a scratch (which Forester and CRV were parking on roadside cannot move)
Not as good as U think
Rough suspension and way too much road noise. Getting in and out will be more difficult for tall or long legged people as you sit very low even with drivers seat elevated. Radio is probably the best part of this vehicle as it has lots of tunable settings and good volume for those who like it loud. Windows fog up bad and take too long to clear when parked. Does not heat up fast like a V-8 does. Gas mileage is about half what is advertised and that is not good. Overall I couldn't get to a good review on this. 3.5/5 at best.
Viva de milagro.
RAVA 4 2020…frenos fallaron y aceleró grandemente. Se llenó de humo blanco… Paramos en una cuneta en construcción perdida total… vivos de milagro. 15 meses de uso. TERRIBLE!!!
Love our Rav!!
Virtually nothing has gone wrong with my 2020 RAV4. I have a small bit of buyer remorse, because wear hearing aids and there is a lot of road noise in my Rav. The Venza model turns out to be more luxurious and is much quieter. But, it has trade offs, as well. I might have gone with that, had I known. But the Rav is a great vehicle, no actual regrets. Lots of power when one needs it. And the breaking system kept me out of an accident, several months ago, the brakes went on when someone pulled out in front of me from a side road. I was not looking in that direction, and never would have braked soon enough. We recently went on a road trip from Washington state to Southern California and we’re delighted when we got 42 MPG. Great car, no regrets, maybe I’ll take it somewhere for some soundproofing.
Old is gold, very reliable
I inherited this car from my grandmother, she bought it new in 2000 and barely ever drove it, so it was in great condition when I ended up getting it back in 2014. I've put about 50,000 miles on it between work, high school, and college. I love this little car, it's never given me an issue and is more reliable than some of my friends' cars from 2010 or newer. The interior leaves a bit to be desired; it's comfortable but the design of the dashboard isn't great and the cupholders are basically useless and get in the way of the gear changer. Well, back in y2k drinks weren't as big as they are now so I can hardly blame them, but it does still suck when I go to put my car in park and the stick won't even go all the way forward because my water bottle is blocking it. The paint coat was excellent and has only just recently (about 2019ish) began to oxidize and peel its topcoat. The SUV style isn't for everyone, but I like roomy, boxy cars like this one. One thing I REALLY appreciate is how quickly the AC and heating kick in. Being from south California, I need the AC to come on as quickly as possible in the hot summer, and my RAV4 is cooled down by the time I leave my driveway. This car has 129,000 miles on it, and I think I can take it for another 80,000 at least. It doesn't come with all the bells and whistles of a newer car with heated seats and electric door locks, but for its time it is more than a wonderful car, and I'll be sticking with Toyota for my next car as well.
