2016 Toyota RAV4 Limited Hybrid

Summary:

Poorly built Toyota

Faults:

Rattles on the inside. It does not have the usual Toyota build.

Horrible front seats. Back and bottom are sore after just a few minutes drive.

Entune system should be abandoned. Touch screen does not work. Sometimes you have to turn the car completely off to reset the radio.

All in all, a very poorly constructed vehicle. Regret that I purchased it.

General Comments:

Loud - lots of road noise.

Does not inspire confidence that it is going to last very long.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sorry you have had bad luck with your RAV4. No doubt that Toyota has had to cut some corners to produce that car. Car makers costs are going through the roof with no end in sight for them.

Also if you are going to buy a used RAV4, it's probably better to move up to the Lexus RX350 which is basically the same car with more solidness to it. Best years built were the 2011-2015 models.

Also if you sell your RAV4, do it with a private party... dealers are $3000.00-5000.00 behind low blue book. Which is way too low.

I think Toyota has been turning around in the past 15 years or so. Same with Nissan. It seems the Japanese industry gets in hands of questionable management quite easily. At this time, I would rather look at Honda and Mazda, they are doing a little better. Some people say also check Kia and Hyundai, but from having a 2015 Sonata I can tell you, stay away from these brands, they have certainly improved in some areas, but they cut costs in many other areas and have plenty of problems with sensors and stuff, and IT'S costly to repair (contrary to a common belief that Korean cars are cheap to run). The few thousands of dollars you are going to save buying a Hyundai, you'll spend in repairs after the warranty. Sorry for the off topic.
