Terrible ride for passengers also RAV4 is not worth buying
I have the 2018 RAV4 Limited AWD. Front and especially the back passengers complained about how hard, uncomfortable the seats are. I even sat in the rear seat, it was as hard as a wooden stool. The front passenger seat is too high up, getting in is difficult because the dash board protrudes near the center in which prevents the left knee/leg to adjust easily. Lack of dome light or any night time lighting for rear passengers. The RAV4 is mostly PLASTIC. Head clearance for anyone above 5 foot 5 inches is terrible unless you happen to be the driver. The OEM tires Toyo Open Country A20 are absolutely cheap and worthless tire. They are bad in rain and worse in snow. Too much bounce or when driving on road that is unevenly graded or surface has ripples, you can notice and feel the RAV4 bouncing or swaying. Engine whine. Underpowered 4 cylinder engine. Wind noise even when windows are closed. Night time driving poor peripheral / side lighting. Toyota should of done more with the headlights for better vision at night. Steering is good but you better know your braking distance. Brakes are par of just functional and not great. Safety Sense does not function well, slow to respond or give warning. RAV4 lacks thrill or frills. It is a boring crossover SUV. The Entune Premium audio w/ Dynamic Navigation (have to pay for Nav service) is nothing special and Voice Recognition is for the birds. The 7 inch Touch Screen is alright but seen and used better ones. It is not worth $32,000 maybe $12,000 and that is for the Limited Edition brand new. Basic Warranty of 3 years is terrible. Best feature of the car is its color Ruby Flare Pearl. okay, Red which is perfect for target practice. Real bad new in ECO Mode you average 6.8mpg. It's a gas hog. If you want any Toyota maybe the CAMRY is there best car. Otherwise get the Honda CR-V. I gave the RAV4 to be used in a Demolition Derby, it was fun watching plastic flying everywhere and wheels just burst. Obviously Toyo tires are like tire tubes or balloons. I had to get rid of it because I did not want anyone to get hurt. The RAV4 is one of the most UnSafe vehicles to drive. The engine and transmission is worth a 3 for reliability. Everything else a Zero or grade of F.
