2016 Toyota rav4 - fun & safe to drive.

2016 Toyota RAV4

I purchased my car a little over a year ago and I have loved it since the moment I got into it. I had test driven other cars, but the moment I sat in this one and started it up, I knew. I drives so nicely and is very comfortable to ride in, I have heard from my passengers. I love the features that it has; power window & locks, backup camera, a great heating/cooling system, good sound system, and so much more. All the seats have a good amount of legroom which is great since I am taller. The trunk is also really nice, and a lot bigger than I thought it would be. The chairs fold down easily for more space. It drives well in bad weather which was such a relief to me. I do not have to be scared to drive anymore when the weather is bad. I haven't had any issues with it so far, which is wonderful. I love the way that it drives, making turns is easy, and it has good pick-up for when you need to pull out fast. The backup camera comes in very handy when backing up because of the blind spots. There is not as much visibility out the back window, so the camera helps a lot. My SUV is considered a smaller one and it is the perfect size for me. I also have a golden retriever dog and he likes the size as well. I am very happy with my decision to buy this one and I will definitely be considering the same type of car when I make my next purchase.

Easy to get in/out of the vehicle. Smooth ride. Responds well to driving style.

I have not experienced any problems with it. Gas mileage averages 27 mpg - 30.6mpg. I have used the ECO drive since purchase. It is a V4 which caused me to pause and consider before purchasing. However, when I press the gas pedal it has plenty of 'energy' to move on down the road. Having a V4 engine has not been an issue for me. The inside is roomy and doesn't feel like a cocoon. The instrument panel provides all the information I need while driving. I like the warning icons and messages regarding upcoming service needs. Instrument panel is understandable and easy to maneuver unlike other brands. Everyone that rides comments on how comfortable the seats are - front and back seats. I agree-the driver's seat is comfortable even for 4 hour rides. The sunroof is very nice and this is the first vehicle I've owned with a sunroof. I thought it would be loud or let in 'road' noise - it is very quiet-no noise coming into the car. I love my RAV4. I had commented that I would not own a RAVA 4 when it was the older short square model with the spare tire on the back. I love the newer SUV look.

The things I like about my 2016 rav4.

2016 Toyota RAV4

The vehicle is a comfortable ride. Accelerates quickly when entering the highway. The cruise control comes with a radar feature so the vehicle will slow down when the traffic in front slows down. There is also a back up warning system that alerts the drive when another vehicle is approaching when you are about to back up. The side view mirrors also alert you to a vehicle that is in your blind spot, very helpful when passing. I get about 28 mpg. I have not had any problems and follow the scheduled maintenance as prescribed by the manufacturer. The stereo system sounds great, and although my vehicle does not have a CD player it plays thumb drives very well as it does satellite radio. I also like the app that provides hands free phoning, receiving and making calls is very easy, no more dialing while driving. The phone numbers are on the touch screen, so touch the number and it will dial. The windows are large enough to provide good views in all directions and the moon roof is nice to open during dry, cool weather.
