New memeber on here, thought , i'd introuduce myself and the car, currently from Queens , NY. Long time Mazda MPV which unfortunately gave up on our family two weeks ago after 127,000 miles was replaced with a 2016 Toyota RAV4 LE. Drives great must, say it is QUIET inside versus our 2014 Honda CR-V EX, never realized the CR-V is pretty loud. Just thought i'd post some pictures and any questions can and will try to be answered.! enjoy! :D Was leaning towards the Subaru Forester or Subaru XV Crosstrek, but ended up with the Toyota! Looking forward to our second Toyota , a while ago we had a 1988 Chevrolet Nova which was actually a Chevrolet version of a Toyota Corolla in it's time. Currently less than 300 miles in about 10 days of ownership.

Thanks both, after 500 miles running great, MPG is improving as it gets broken in, 21 much better than the 15 MPG I used to get in our Mazda.

The gas mileage on my SE has been improving also. 1 month & 3 days, just under 800 miles and the average has been hovering in the 23-24 mpg range, up from around 21-22. That's mostly Raceway, um, Boulevard driving commuting every day. Drives to my parents outside of the city on country roads (60-70 mph) and some highway (75 mph) average 27-28 mpg early on. I'm heading that way this weekend so it will be interesting to see if that improves.

I visited Car Max yesterday looking for a Subaru Forester, Outback or Acura RDX. The features that are important to me are a quiet cabin, so little wind noise as possible, comfortable seat as I tend to have lower back issues, and a 5 star crash rating. While there we saw a 2016 Rav 4 XLE with 1k mileage and $25,995. Good price right? We are in Orlando, Fl. Can't find any reviews on wind noise of this car. What is your experience?
