The car is reliable, it handles well and maintenance is minimal.
The only problem I need to address is the gas mileage. I come from driving a Prius 38-40 mpg to 23 mpg but this to be expected. I also have a 2008 Rav 4 that my wife drives and it gets 28 mpg. It seems the more gadgets you have on the car, the lower the gas mileage. Otherwise, it's a great vehicle.
Toyotas seem to always get better
2017 Toyota RAV4Tom Martineau - Tallahassee, FL09/23/2017
It is a well equipped vehicle - Limited edition - with all wheel drive. Has all the sensors, and is exceedingly sure-footed. Wish it had the feature that retracts the side mirrors, but it's not a significant short-coming. There are no flaws in how the vehicle was assembled, and both the interior and exterior are refined and elegant. The vehicle exhibits no mechanical flaws, either.
A blessing at this time...
2011 Toyota RAV4Elinor Dalton - Virginia Beach, VA06/08/2015
My other Toyota (Camry wagon--with 200,000 when i traded it) was excellent -- and so far, this Rav 4 is carrying on that tradition! Am still getting used to its size -- bigger than my Subaru Forester. The paint on it is disappointing -- because in rain, the black rubber on the mirrors (and other places on the car) leaves gray streaks down the door, and other places on the car. The paint (OR rubber insulation) for that year must have needed some 'tweaking'� My son thinks this is a much better car for me -- safer!! We both are pleased!!!
