Did you buy this car new or used?


How much did you pay? (including all on-road costs)


What were your needs when you bought this car? Has it fulfilled those needs?

Wanted good mid sized SUV. The RAV has well and truly fulfilled my needs. I wanted something the same size as my CRV, but more modern, more gas efficient and more powerful.

What were your initial thoughts about the car? Tell us why it appealed to you.

Loved it from the start. More frugal on fuel than my Honda CRV and much peppier. Also love the colour…it’s a vibrant powder blue and it’s really easy to identify when trying to find it in a crowded car park.

What have you discovered since owning the car?

 Just that I made a good decision buying it. I’m pleased I didn’t get an EV. Especially now the government is introducing road user charges.

What do you like/dislike about the car?

Nothing. Wish I’d got the model with 360 camera though. Maybe the windscreen wipers could work more effectively. The screen gets fogged up also on the inside.

Any other comments on the car?

Great car. No wonder it’s so popular.

Lastly, would you buy this vehicle again?


Why would/wouldn't you buy it again?

It’s a great car. Would buy again. There is nothing I can complain about really. Well made, reliable, good looking, frugal on gas.
