RAV4 XA50 AWD 2.5L Hybrid Cruiser (2019-2021)

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

Has anyone fitted different wheels to their 2020 RAV4 Edge? If so do you have an OEM wheel for sale. I would like a full size spare but am not prepared to pay $2000 for a new rim. Mick G.

2wd Hybrid Cruiser - While on stop and dead silent, I hear a very faint but constant high pitch whining sound. It goes away when I further depress the brake but only after the drilling sound. Has anyone ever noticed this or has this ever happened to you?

Have you’ve tried changing the speed limit warning settings to no, refer page 103 of the audio system / navigation booklet? Don’t know if it’ll fix the issue but good luck.

Yes Ozzi, I agree that it is annoying but for me its a good reminder to drive carefully past a school or an up coming speed camera or high accident prone area. One of the reasons I purchased the Rav 4 is because of its safety features. Cheers Frank

RAV4

Recently purchased a RAV4 GXL Hybrid AWD 2020. It is perfectly drive, except the headlights aim & alignment is different between left & right hand-side lighting distance. Toyota service said it is normal as the right hand-side lighting distance is shorter to avoid shinning to on-coming vehicles. Do anyone has the same experience?

Different angles on 2 headlights is normal for all cars. Its a safety feature.

Tint the rear. It offers UV protection.

How do you turn off the school zone in a 2020 Rav 4 Cruiser Hybrid? The road RSA is off the nav system school zone is off but she still goes on and on about them all day.... we have a lot of school zones in our area. It would be fabulous if you could set times into the system and it went by the car clock!!

It is in the manual and is done via the menu on the main screen. Need to work through all the options carefully. Also, the school zone alerts occur during holidays and after hours - annoying. But a great car and this is a minor quibble.

Hi looking at the difference between RAV4 2.5l AWD and RAV4 2l 2wd. Will be doing many local drives but also a few long distance drives (up to 2000km rtn) could someone give me an idea which would one would be more beneficial. Thanks

My car it’s 2.2 diesel I did very long drive from Melbourne to Esperance WA 6000km returns and Mel to cold coast and about 5 trips to Sydney I’m very happy with fuel efficiency between 8-9 L per with Aircondation running

Al fern

My apologies for being unable to answer your question. I would suggest checking the fuel consumption of 2.5L AWD vs 2.0L 2WD on the statistics on Toyota’s website

I know that they do not make diesel options but only Petrol or Hybrid engines nowadays.

Al fern

The fuel comparisons is available as per the link below:
https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/PowerSearch.do?action=noform&year1=2019&year2=2019&make=Toyota&baseModel=RAV4&srchtyp=ymm

Unfortunately, it’s mpg rather than kms per litre. :(
Hope this helps

Hi there..im planning to buy a rav4 2004 cv automatic but some people are saying the car is really good and some are saying these cars have a transmission issue..im confused would someone please guide me if i should buy or no ?

1 answer
Zelly
Zelly

Hi Nomi, The 2004 Rav 4 didn't have any more issues with the transmission then any other model. Generally, the auto's are really good. A test drive of the car will soon show you if it has any problems. Maybe take someone with you that has a bit of mechanical ability, when you look at it, so that they can put the transmission through it's paces. If it slips, noisy or even hangs on during a gear change, then you've got problems, otherwise grab it and enjoy the ride!

Anyone notice fuel tank filling issues ? heard in the US there are issues about tank cuts off at 3/4 and not being able to fill it up to its full tank capacity.

6 answers
Zelly
Zelly

To my knowledge, the tank in the XA50 is the same in all models. In Australia anyway. The filler neck doesn't appear all that long and once the fuel nozzle cuts off, there's very little room to squeeze anymore in. I can only get about 1 liter into thank once the bouser clicks off.

onesky
onesky

I mean the concern is if the fuel gauge indication as "full tank" is not accurate or true to specification; in other words tank not being able to take 55litres (as per the spec) and trip computer calculates range based on the actual fuel volume. A good indication will be what's the max range your trip computer calculates on a full tank fill up ?

Canberra Daddy

I have done 6,000km since Oct 2019. No problems with fuelling. The only issue is that the empty fuel warning is very cautions. I have done over 100km after the zero DTE mark. Also, once the low fuel light comes on (about 50km DTE) there is no further update - just a warning to go to a petrol station.
