Long Haul Keeper

I have owned my RAV4 Hybrid limited for 5 years now and am still in love with it! Overall, I have averaged over 34 mpg with about 60/40% highway/city driving. This car is very dependable and has been very affordable to service so far. The only issues it has are with infotainment screen freezing, fogging in rear lights, and rear auto hatch problems at times. The car is beautiful on inside with loads of compliments, has plenty of interior passenger and cargo space, and enough acceleration to get me where I need to go. Safety features are just as good as any standard car you can buy in 2021, my favorites are the auto high-beams and adaptive cruise control. I highly recommend this car if you are in the market for a used car, eons better than regular gas-engine cars. I will be keeping this car for at least another 3 years!


Totally dependable

This car had all the extras, great on gas and extremely comfortable. It drove sturdy and always was reliable. I could carry multiple passengers when necessary and everyone had plenty of room, including my big dog!


Boxy but dependable

Having driven one for 6 years and then test drove 3 more recently, the Rav needs to upgrade the seats and figure out how to make them quieter from road noise.


Went from a loved '13 RAV4 to '16 RAV4 Hybrid.

BEST DECISION EVER! I'M GETTING 35-40 MPG IN CITY! I loved my 2013 RAV4 Limited, but there's MORE LOVE LOVE LOVE since I upgraded to the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid XLE. All the bells & whistles and the gas mileage in my bedroom community is AWESOME! GO RAV4 HYBRID TODAY!


Too new add a review. will update after driving

so far so good . no complains. it only has been few days. will add more updates after driving for couple of months. Right now it drives well


Most reliable and efficient car we have owned

I love it plenty of power great gas mileage lots of features the advanced technology is crazy awesome. It feels like driving a jet with all the information on the display!


Comfortable, Smooth, Engineered for Safety

This is a vehicle that takes advantage of all the technology available for making driving not only easier, but safer by far! The alerts to surroundings, the navigation to get you where you need to go, voice activation via bluetooth for your phone, the economical use of both gas & electric power, the comfort of being high enough getting in and out without back issues, even reclining back seats...I tell my passengers, "it ALMOST drives me!" ...but not quite. You still have control...it just makes it easier to have it. The slanted floor behind the rear seats & no seat latch from the back compartment are my only disappointments. Otherwise, it's a great ride!


Very pleased with our RAV4 Hybrid

Took our 2016 RAV4 Hybrid to our mechanic for a go-over after purchase and he told us it is in almost-new condition after running almost 50K miles. If it holds up as well in the future, we should have a reliable vehicle for at least 20 years. It cost a bit more for the Hybrid model, but we should save enough on fuel to recoup that $ fairly soon. We purchased the RAV4 to pull a tent trailer for vacations, as well as for all-around driving.


Very smooth and comfortable SUV

Since this car was larger than I expected for a compact SUV, it doesnt provide the excellent gas mileage as you would get in a smaller car like a prius but it is still much better than a solely gas-powered model. I really enjoy the bluetooth features and the moon roof. This car is so smooth, it almost feels like a luxury car.


Practical and reliable, good gas mileage

I bought it when it was a year outdated. But still overall performance is very satisfying. It’s a very smart car.I can rely on it.
