haven't driven it much
I've had the new RAV4 for a few weeks but have not driven it much. We finally traded in our 2000 RAV4, so the difference is significant. We have the XLE Premium with power driver seat, power rear hatch, digital rear view mirror, Softex seats, and JBL system among other things. I'd have to research to figure out what all it came with.
There are a few annoyances that I may eventually get over. (1) There is some silver trim and lighter material on the dash that reflects off the front windows. I'm thinking about turning the those silver trim black with Plasti-dip. (2) I'm not fond of the bolsters on the front seat. When I turn to get out of the car, I have to "overcome" those bolsters to get out. I would prefer a flat seat. (3) There seems to be some hesitation when accelerating from a stop. It seems to pause 2 or 3 times just to get to normal driving speed (35-40 mph). I remember driving my brother's old Honda CRV and I was much annoyed by this pausing and how I didn't experience it in the 2000 RAV4. Maybe I just need to learn some new finesse with the gas pedal.
I do love being able adjust the seat height.
I'd be curious how loud it is on the highway. In the 2000 RAV4, I'd almost have to yell to maintain a conversation while driving on the highway.
