Like the new body style and ride, very smooth for a truck. Gas mileage with the new 6 seems to be very good for such a large truck so far. The seating is spacious and the hvac works well for such a large seating area. The features on the limited exceed

I seemed to have a lemon, with many electrical problems over the 7 years. Door lock actuators broke 8 times (for 4 doors), an AC sensor forced a new compressor, I replaced the AC control panel, I replaced the AC clutch relay and had other such problems.

Toyota RAV4 Reliability and Durability: Pros

2015 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Doesn't everyone who buys a Toyota expect it to just run? With 7500 miles on the odometer, I can say I've got no issues nor do I expect any. No weird noises, nothing to take back to the dealer for, it all just works, and has been since I got it. That is a reassuring start, but something I've come to take for granted with the Toyota products.
2009 4dr SUV 179-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
High ratings from every car review I have read. Very high resale value and see used ones all the time with 150k+ miles - I should be able to own this 10+ years.

After trading in a car that was in the shop 6+ times a year, I wanted a vehicle with an above-average likelihood of reliability. This vehicle has so far lived up to reliability expectations.
