I have a 2019 xse with 6000 miles. The only problem I have with filling the tank is, it clicks off to quick. I have 2 thing I do. 1, I can let it just click off and know I will get lower mileage. 2. I stand there and I know I can get 2 gallons more if I pull the nozzle out a little and slow down the fill. I do the second one. I hope this helps you out. I too just had a after market hitch installed.Hey guys,
When I first saw that there was a rav4 xse I jumped at the chance to put a down payment on one. I have until friday to either get my downpayment refunded or purchase the vehicle. I was 100% on board until I ran in to this forum. As this is my first hybrid, I already had concerns about what happens when the hybrid battery dies. But the fill up has got me concerned...
For those who have the rav4 hybrid, how many are experiencing the gas tank fill up issue? I know there have been quite a few people but compared to the overall numbers, how many hybrids do you think are affected? I brought the concern to my sales person this past weekend and all they told me was that they knew of the problem but because it does not affect the engine/trans directly, there is not a tsb/recall that toyota is planning to do as of yet.
I get that it does not affect performance, but if we are going to pay in upwards of $39k otd, shouldn't you be purchasing a vehicle without a problem from the beginning? Unfortunately due my previous car dying, I need to purchase a vehicle on friday. It's either the rav4 hybrid or a offroad 4x4 tacoma (i know it's apples to oranges). I love the gas mileage in the rav4, but am a little concerned with paying $39k cash for a vehicle with a problem that toyota does not acknowledge that it's a real problem. Am I just being paranoid?
Thank you for all your input
