Better then expect

I purchased this car in may 2023... I had a fair idea that the car will be good... it wasn't until I got the car and used it that it exceed all my expectations. I have had no issues at all and the car feels very solid and safe. I have 2 daughters and I honestly feel at ease. It's definitely worth the money. I bought a mazda cx5 brand new before this car, although the Mazda had a bit more bells and whistles I will still prefer the rav4 over the Mazda. Show details

Great Car BUT!!!!

You need to remember to switch off interior lights so don't come on when opening doors, open your drivers side door immediately when switching car off so turns off the headlights or you will flatten the really quite useless auxillary car start 12v battery - Toyota please fix this design flaw - Onto my 2nd Auxillary car starting battery in 2 years - Home & Business 50/50 and use car daily and book serviced at book service requied intervals Show details

Somewhat disappointed

Disappointed in some of the aspects, Of first the steering wheel is not centred to the drivers seat. Often times I struggle with discomfort when driving long distances due to the odd angle.
Road noise is unbearable, and infotainment screen is of very poor quality on the 2020 model. I seen better quality screens on the cheaper corolla’s.

Got to commend the fuel economy thou, which was what got me into it. Show details

Over rated, economical, horribly boring and almost unpleasant

The one and only reasonable thing is the fuel economy. I hate the nasty CVT transmission that makes it sound like a sewing machine, hard plastics and a feeling of commercial quality not luxury. The entertainment screen is of very average quality with camera resolution poor. I expected more but this car I just find so boring and uninspiring to drive Show details

Paul · RAV4 XA50 AWD 2.5L Hybrid Cruiser (2019-2024)

Has anyone tried replacing standard black wheels with polished aluminum wheels, as a factory fitted option? Toyota website displays 18" polished aluminum wheels as an option but does not indicate the cost. Does anyone know the possibility and cost? Thank You
