Everything is good except for power

I’ve owned this car for a year and put 20k miles on it (2021 Toyota RAV4) and everything on it is fairly decent except the engine and transmission I live on a mountain so there are lots of hills and curves and the transmission is DEFINITELY not geared for hilly terrain or maybe it’s the weak Mickey Mouse motor either way there appears to be a delay when you push the pedal down (it’s almost gotten me t-boned pulling out of a business onto the busy town road because it took so long to take off) so if your wanting something with remotely any power DO NOT get this car looking back now I would trade the decent gas mileage for a little more power and maybe it’s just my dodge Cummins I’m used to but this thing is weak sauce when it comes to the motor and power when you need it!


Car was certified when we bought it.

We are not happy! We hit a small bump on any Pa road and it feels horrible!! No smooth ride. No power! No beeps for lane changing. Gas mileage is horrible! My daughter has a large suv and we followed them to Fl and back and it cost me more for gas! She has a Traverse. Never again.


It’s Good & It’s Not So

I purchased a new 21 Limited with the Advanced Tech package And Limited Grade All Weather package. Its very very loud under acceleration. The highway pavement noise and wind noise are barely tolerable. I have a bad back the seats are fantastic and I have a bad back they are great on long trips. Constantly Averaging 28mpg it’s dependable and I know it will hold its value.


I love Rav4

A little too big for myself but I love this car. I had a used Rav4 before, drove about 10 years, loved it. Also I was able to sell it pretty high price ($4,500) comparing the year and the mileage (over 200,0000 miles). So that is one of the reason why I bought Rav4 again.


Best bang for the buck

I've have a Rav 4 premium wich was purchased in feb2021.ive had zero problems and the car accelerates like a rx350 which I cannot understand where people want to tell you the car is slow . the car was purchased because of extreme back problems which I am on disabled for.the car does everything as well as my dad's girlfriend's 2017 Rx 350.the gas mileage is amazing.


I love my Rav4

Amazing performance for a 4 cylinder. First time I ever owned something without a V8, and I am impressed. Good handling. great interior and very comfortable. Good MPG also.


RAV4 Limited

Purchased the vehicle new and have had EXCELLENT gas milage, no problems at all, cargo space is almost as spacious as a Lexus RX350 and it is NON-turbocharged. Performance and acceleration is extremely good for a 4 cylinder engine. I would recommend it to anyone.


Dude it’s a Toyota!

This is the 5th Toyota I have own. Toyota knows how to make a product that last, looks good, rides amazing, and will turn heads for years to come. I’ve own the RAV for just a few days but look forward to years of enjoyment and feel I’ll be able to hand it down to my 7 year old daughter in about 9 years.


Great ride

The 2021 RAV4 is a real treat. It is large enough to be extremely comfortable; even in the back seat, and small enough to be practical. It rides like my Avalon yet has plenty of space in the back to be able to haul things like beach chairs and coolers. Great car.


We only buy Toyota always

Meets all our needs love air in backseat so far it’s fantastic great room in way back love auto open back hatch love trunk cover and automatic power driver seat
