Took delivery of my Limited Hybrid in Metallic Grey

Picked up my Limited Hybrid in Metallic Grey on Thursday and finally the sun came out this weekend so I can take some shots of the new car. After spending the last month or so on this forum learning about the new car and reading posts from fellow drivers about their experiences, I was really excited to finally take delivery of my car.

Good luck to those who are still waiting... your patience will no doubt be rewarded at the end!

That is a nice looking ride! This is the color I am leaning towards as well.

Congrats, lets us know how hard it is to keep clean, how good/bad it looks when it's dirty, it's certainly a nice looking color, makes the plastic over fenders not so obvious and it isn't black!

I really like the look of the metallic grey on a bright, sunny day. On a gloomy or rainy day, I have to admit it doesn't have that "pop" to the colour. The silver would look better on an overcast day. My last car was silver so I was really torn between the silver and the grey for the RAV4. But I found the silver Toyota uses for the RAV4 is a tad too light for my taste, and against the matte black fenders the silver gives a little too much contrast in my mind. I think for the XSE with the glossy piano black fenders, the silver would look much nicer.

I do wish the metallic grey Toyota uses would be a bit lighter. I really like the Lexus grey paint they use for the NX series SUVs.

My last car, a Highlander was silver as well so I too was skeptical, it just seemed so" boring". I also wanted the Magnetic Gray but opted for the Silver Sky because that's what became unexpectedly available locally. (I bought it two business hours after it appeared on the dealer's website.) My rationale was that it would be least prone to look dirty. But after 1.5 days with it I'm very pleased. Silver is not the best description for this shade except maybe under the very brightest light. Compared to the Highlander the Silver Sky looks more of a "medium gray".

Two issues I've found with my vehicle after 2 days of driving are:

1. Doors do not automatically lock when I either shift from Park, or when speeds exceeds 20 km/h. (Doors are confirmed unlocking when I shift the car into Park).

2. A second press & hold the door unlock button on the remote doesn't open all the windows.

Can the above only be set at a dealership?

1. Same issue here - can access the menu in your navigation system but doesn't respond to that setting -- can either reset things by unplugging your battery or visiting dealer. I'm going to the dealership on Monday to get it sorted out: https://www.rav4world.com/forums/201...matically.html

2. That needs to be set at the dealership.

1b. My power seats don't seem to set either. Holding down SET and pressing 1 gives a longish beep. Move seat. Press 1 and get immediate short beep. Seat doesn't return. I'll get them to check it out while I'm doing the door thing.

3. Magnetic grey here, too. Unexpectedly fell into one that one, and was too hot to pass up (paid MSRP for it, though...)
