Yeah, nothing about Prius sales plummeting. No mention of the new RAV4 sales?

Help RAV4World members help you by providing your car's operating location in your profile page. Climate can cause a RAV4 in Dallas Wisconsin to experience a different set of issues when compared to the same model in Dallas Texas.

Interesting that in the April 2019 Consumer Reports model comparison charts of compact SUVs as well as other vehicles the Toyota RAV4 doesn't even exist, at least not in the magazine which we received. Continues a pattern of CR ignoring the RAV4 as in past April issues, which is their annual vehicle evaluation issue.

The '19 Rav4 is still being tested by CR.

I think RAV4 sales down 12.5% 1 month is no big deal unless it is or becomes a continuing trend.

As far as consumer reports, I stopped internet and magazine because I think they are biased—just my opinion. I do look at the annual auto issue as a guide or trends of manufacturers. I purchased a F150 based on their recommended trucks to buy and it turned out to be a piece of junk. In one year it went from average—Recommended to much worse than average. I also see many inconsistencies. Some Toyota models they dislike regardless. It’s not the car bible, but a reference.

OK I’m done ranting........yeah what happened to the Prius? No honorable mention in the stats?

I'm continually amazed that the Tacoma sales remain so high. Other than reliability it is so outdated that it's not even funny.

Looked back at three previous April CR editions - the RAV4 has always been omitted from the comparison charts. And was referring to the magazine, not the online info.

2019 RAV4 February sales reported sales decline - with the prices which dealers reportedly are charging it is little wonder that buyers may be considering other vehicles. I can buy a Kia Sorento, recommended by CR, with a V6 engine and the interior and exterior colors I would want, for about the same money as for a roughly equivalent RAV4, with a V6 engine and a 10 year drivetrain warranty as well.

You should absolutely, definitely buy the KIA. You deserve that car.

You might want to run a "KIA warranty problem" check on google.

Ya, you can save 10% buying a Hyundai or Kia, but then you're stuck driving a Hyundai or Kia.
WOW, that's a sweet Kia said nobody ever
Nope... they said "Nice Kia, so you absolutely had to have a new car, but couldn't afford one?"
