Dyno, Thanks for your concern about the 3rd, I know, read a lot about it. But mostly for the suspension on it. It's actually to towing fonction I'm looking for, that's why the sport or the 3rd model. Not to actually sit someone. Probably going to remove it to get off some weight and gas saving.
And to answer you Beaumont67, what I don't really like about my 2016 is the lack of power. I tow a small fish boat (1500lbs ish) which is actually the maximum tow capacity of the 2016, need to put it in "sport" mode to have some towing to it and still rev near red line quite often. Best example would be my trip from Ottawa to Algonquin Park, wasn't at all an efficient and easy and effortless ride. Miss my 2011 i-4 2.4L was less difficult in those conditions. Even thinking about the new RAV4 Trail (adventure for US) with a better transmission cooler, it's still the same engine. So that's the reason going back to older gen.
Rav4 XLE 2.5L 2016 kept 2y
Corolla XRS 2.4L 2010 kept 1y
Corolla S 2005 kept 1y
Rav4 2011 I4 2.5L Sport kept for 3y
Corolla XRS 2.4L 2009 kept 3y
