Things about RAV4 that could be better.
Shifts into a higher gear(s) way too quick. There is no need to use 6th below 55 MPH.
Quieter exhaust, it sounds like a tractor around town, that makes the excessive shifting all the more noticeable. Most of the shifts would not be noticeable if they could not heard. It would be more refined if the exhaust was quiet like the 7th gen Camry.
Tire pressure display buried, not user friendly, it should be easier to call up.
No "HomeLink", dealer said the limited had it, he was wrong. Added mirror with home link.
Weak horns, replaced with 7th gen Camry horns.
Slop and water gets on the bottom insides of the doors, will have to look at adding a foam strip to keep it out.
Crappy retractable luggage area cover, was a pain in the a$$, quickly took it out. Needs hard cover like even low bucks hatches have.
Plastic bag hooks in cargo area too low and too few.
Otherwise the RAV4 does well, just a bit rough around the edges.
