    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    I use LKA with DCC for 10 hours or so every week on the highway with hardly needing to adjust. It helps greatly with fatigue. Its either the roads here are in much better condition than I thought; I have an exceptionally well calibrated system; or yall are pretty bad at staying in the middle of...
  2. Knowing what you know now..Would you still buy a RAV4 Hybrid

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Yes, I like it other than the fuel issue. It rides as well and is as quiet as my cx9 was. I like the door handle placement as I am 6'3" tall and most compact car door handles are uncomfortably close to my torso.
  3. Has anyone installed ai OpenPilot? Anyone tempted?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    I use the built in lka and acc extensively on my 2019 with no complaints. Highways do not generally have steep curves here. What are the real benefits to openpilot vs the built in system?
  4. Worried about snow performance? Don’t be!

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Mine came with the Toyos and I decided to replace them with ws90s this fall. Glad I didnt waste my money.
  5. Lease vs. buy

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Either way you will be paying the depreciation between here and there. I prefer owning the car as you get more control.
  6. RAV4 Hybrid drive train: does the gasoline engine directly connect to the wheels?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    The main electric motor acts as a huge clutch and sends power to the wheels, to the battery, and sometimes uses the electric motor to add extra power to the battery in addition to the engine based on what the computer thinks the car needs. There is no band or gears that change like a cvt or...

  8. RAV4 Hybrid drive train: does the gasoline engine directly connect to the wheels?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    The drivetrain uses the motor generator's magnets and coils as a clutch so even though the engine does not physically connect to the drivetrain it directly powers it through magnetic force if that makes any sense. This allows it to more directly drive energy to the drivetrain without converting...
  9. Looking to buy

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Yes not as smooth as following traffic but seems to work well if I am not speeding and the distance is set to 3 car lengths.
  10. Looking to buy

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    I owned a 98 Jeep wrangler and a 2008 Mazda CX-9 before switching recently to the 2019 RAV4 Hybrid. You are wise not to go with a Jeep. Compared to both of those vehicles the ride is comparably quiet, and comfortable. It is extremely fast in sport mode up to around 90 mph (I haven't gone much...
  11. Heading to the body shop.

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    Luckily you got their info. Someone did a hit and run on me and scraped my car while I was out shopping the first week I had it.. Took $300 to get the thing repainted.
  12. Does everyone here make at least $300k per year?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    This is a bit dumb imo. I have spent the last 10 years of my life buying used cars and spending 3 or 4k usd a year repairing them and doing maintenance because you never really know how well they were maintained prior... wasting a lot of time broken down. Now that I am financially stable and...
  13. 2019 Rav4 hybrid owners who DON’T have the fuel fill problem please report!

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    I usually buy gas when I see it drop under half a tank and I have not had any issues getting the tank to full. I have not run the tank to empty yet - should I try it see if it is affected?
  14. Winter tires for 2019 RAV4 Hybrid?

    4.5 Rav4 Electric Hybrid
    I just picked up 4x Blizzak WS90 225/65R17 for $425 USD installed at BJs. I have used Blizzaks (on a FWD car) in hilly New England the past few years with no problems.
