2013 Toyota RAV4
There are 4 user reviews for the LE AWD trim shown below
- Multimode Automatic Transmission, back up camera
- 2010 RAV4 options were taken away
Purchased As New
I had been leasing 2010 Toyota RAV4 for 3 years, and now I have 2013 Toyota RAV4.
Every little option of 2010 Toyota RAV4 was put to a good use,
1. lever controlled deceleration mechanism on the cruise control, no more in 2013 model. The feature isn’t available on 2010 Lexus RX 350,
2. power windows, one touch controlled both window opening and closing, was taken away,
3. back door that opens to a side, very unique and ergonomically correct, replaced with door that opens up,
4. I liked tight steering wheel, too soft stirring on 2013 Toyota RAV4 model on the contrary would be dangerous on the highway,
… all of these were taken away from 2013 Toyota RAV4 model because “THEY wanted to please female population”, I was told by a Toyota dealer.
There are some additions to the model of 2013 Toyota RAV4:
1. back up camera, a plus
2. Multimode Automatic Transmission, a manual shift mechanism, which I like and use a lot,
3. quiet but rough ride,
4. blue tooth, ppl on the other end report lots of noises so I end up using a phone’s speaker,
5. no more fragile bumper of 2010 Toyota RAV4, a plus,
6. 3 out 5 for Reliability:
a. a trim that hold windshield is getting off,
b. rear power windows are unresponsive time to time,
c. little things inside are not mounted / installed well ...
7. gas ......read morehide

- Great fuel economy, higher seating position, comfortable seating, spacious trunk space
- Very weak; SUV version of Corolla or Camry
Purchased As Not Purchased
For an AWD car, this car uses very less fuel, which put a big smile on my face. I used this car for about a month, and was very happy that I had large space to carry my stuff while spending less money on gas. The seating position is much higher than most cars, so you have great visibility while driving. The dash is quite modern, but slightly feels cheap. Overall, it was a good car. My only complaint is that the car lacks power and is slightly less responsive. I felt like I was just driving a bigger and taller version of Toyota Corolla. I had some trouble driving in the hills, since the car was a bit weak....read morehide

- Good size, back up camera
- Ride is too rough, feel every bump in the road, poor performance
Purchased As New
My wife leased this SUV, 4 months ago, to replace her 2008 Highlander. This is not a bad redesign of the Rav 4 and the back up camera is nice. But almost every bump on road is felt with this vehicle. My wife even agrees that she is very disappointed in this vehicle. Performance and handling are okay. I would be very hesitant to recommend this vehicle to anyone....read morehide
