Good, reliable car

I've owned mine for a couple of months. Lots of technology to figure out. As a hybrid, it's good on gas but also provides the "kick" I need when needed. I like all the automatic things like door locking, voice commands, etc. Drives smoothly as well. Good value. I'm happy with the car for sure...


Been a great car

Although the hybrid is best for Intown use I have put over 100,000 miles of highway miles with consistently good few mileage being over 30 with no problems whatsoever with this vehicle


It was fine, till car got in collision

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid was a great car till it’s got in collision. After that electric battery didn’t work properly. It’s was start using gasoline more than any gas car I ever drove. Ones it stopped on the middle of highway. Just 3,5 years old with 40 thousand miles - I was starting having problems with electric equipment.


Has everything you want from a small suv

Drove it from Roanoke to Pittsburgh and encountered snow. It handled the snowy road with ease. Rode well and had no safety concerns. The front camera got covered with snow and kept giving signals which was agitating. Overall a very stable car.


My Achievable Dream Car

This car was a big upgrade from my 2011 Corolla, and I was looking for something with more room and newer features, but still great mileage. The Rav is fun to drive, great at handling roads even in bad weather, and the many features like lane assist, blind spot detection, and smart follow assist on cruise control are small but incredibly handy. I have had the car less than a month but feel like I’m discovering new features every time I drive! Toyota truly delivers a lot in this SUV package.


Very nice AWD ride

Had a reliable 2014 Prius v for 6 years...until kids moved to snowy mountain area. I tired of chaining up the Prius, so we bought a lease-return Rav4 hybrid XLE. Personally, I'm disappointed that the v wagon was discontinued and never offered with AWD. That's the car I would have bought new. But, for the money and reliability, the CPO Rav4 is the next best choice. Good fuel economy, lane assist, power lift gate, plenty of room, CPO warranty, so really can't complain. I do miss the Prius wagon, though...


Anotrher great Toyota!

We purchased this Rav-4 in 2017, and have put about 60,000 trouble free miles on it. Our last Toyota, a Highlander hybrid (2006) topped 200,000 miles with the original battery- gives lie to the battery issue. The only reason we are selling its that I just took delivery on a tesla Model Y, something I have been waiting for a long time.


I will drive this car till the wheels fall off

The Good: It is a very smooth ride, quiet, has great cargo space, the seats are comfortable, and the back seat is spacious enough to hold my 6' 3" friend for a short ride. I've driven it on the highway and in town: on the highway the blind spot sensors really do help because there is a blind spot big enough for someone to hide behind. In town it manoeuvres around horrible drivers well and the back camera and parking assist helps with parallel parking. The bad: So quiet it takes some getting used to: I accidentally left it on in the driveway the first week I owned it because when the battery is on it's quieter than my vacuum. The onboard computer keeps disrupting the display with requests for a software update that apparently it can't do sitting in the drive way twenty feet away from my router. The A/C causes it to eat gas. Thats it! I love this car and am very happy to have purchased it. My biggest advice; read the users manual so you understand what the beeping means.


Loving Hybrid

Only owned for a short time, been great for commuting. Comfortable seating and plenty of room. Previous vechile was a V6 and was concerned that the hybrid functionality wouldn't perform, I was mistaken. The hybrid performs great, better gas mileage, and a lot quiter. The EV is on more than I thought it would be in the NH area. Would recommend the RAV4 Hybrid.


I’ve only owned the car for a week

Rides great, so quiet, excellent mileage. Lots of safety features. Screen is easy to navigate. Lots of cargo space; I can fit my fat bike with the wheels on
