    After purchasing my third gen earlier this year the wife and I just purchased a 2017 RAV4 as her new daily driver. Toyota is running a special -- 0% APR financing up to 72 months. Any of yall have experience with the newer RAV4s? Thanks!

    We have a 2015 Rav4 XLE. Really comfortable on long trips. I dont know about the 2017s but it was hard to find good seat covers that worked with the fold down cup holder in the back seat, not sure if yours has that. Good gas mileage, easy to park. The only thing my wife complains about is the glare on the screen when using the back up camera, there is no type of sheild to block the sun over the radio screen. Some parts of the interior are soft, such as ours has a nice scratch where the moonroof switches are from her fingernails.
    No issues mechanically, the tried and true 4 cyl. is all this car needs. Sport mode around town, eco mode on the highway.

    My cousin and his fiancé just bought a 2017 RAV4 XLE a few weeks ago and they’re loving it so far. Looked like a really nice vehicle and had a lot features. I was surprised at how nice it was. My wife and I both have Toyotas as well. Taco and a 4Runner here. Congrats on the new ride!

    Taco/t4r combo. The new Rav4's are pretty awesome too, super comfy. We just like going to more places than the grocery store. ;) 6174652336_IMG_0889.jpg

    Not a current RAV4, but my mother and my mother in law both have 2012ish (3rd gen) Ravs...I get to be brake and oil change tech for both of them...At least in the 3rd gen they seem to be very capable and reliable. I have only heard similarly good things about the newer versions from other owners.

    My wife and I actually went to the dealer looking for a new Rav4 for her. We looked at a super nice hybrid model with all the bells and whistles. Then, she said she wasn't ready to drive a completely new car since she's only recently started driving and that she would want me to drive it and she would drive my old Ford. Thats when I decided to switch gears and look at the Tacomas. Figured if I was gonna drive the new car first I'd get what I want lol. She's gonna come out ahead sooner or later though, since I'll eventually get her a 4Runner Pro...

    I had a 1998 RAV4 for 17 years. Put 185,000 miles on it. Other than regular maintenance items the only part I had to replace was a vacuum switching valve on the EGR. Hopefully, you will have a similar experience.
