Well.... I did it! Went to the dealer yesterday, and with some help from my buddy who knows one of the sales managers , got a killer deal on a new 2016 black sand mica limited with black interior! im really happy. I love how much quiter it is inside, deffinatly a lot less wind/road noise ( especially in ev mode:D). I'd love to post on mpg, but it's only got 32 miles on the odometer! I will miss the teracotta interior, I used to get soooo many compliments on it, I hate what they did with the cinnamon...not my slice of toast but to each his own I guess. Anyway I'm a happy new hybrid owner!

I've got about 2500 more miles on mine than you. I guess one of the best things I can say is, when my son went on a first date with someone new, he left his BMW and took my 2016 Limited Hybrid. Nothing like that new Rav4 smell to impress a lady. Lol

Mileage is averaging 39 MPG (6.03 L/100km). Just used the fuel app for the first time to find the least expensive petrol near me. That worked well.

Took it on some softroading: https://youtu.be/Cln4MUV_OMI

It is a very nice car which I have grown to really appreciate. I had my 2005 Prius for about 10 years and was ready to get another. When Toyota offered a Hybrid Rav4, that was an easy choice.

I liked the Cinnamon interior but my lady didn't. We ended up getting grey/ash with the Advanced Tech package.

Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.

Thanks a bunch....Great video. I Just checked my tire pressure, 44 psi!!! I knocked it down to 32, I'm sure that will quiet down the ride a bit. The L.E.D. Headlights seem to work great as well, also I'm glad the heated seats work just as great as my old rav.

While the door sticker shows 33 psi the max psi on the tire is 51 so I think 40 psi would be a good compromise between comfort and fuel economy.

I have the Yokahama tires, 40 psi max. Mine came at 39, ride was harsh. Deflated them to 32 psi...huge ride difference. I doubt it will amount to burning more than $10 of more gas this year if anything. The better ride quality and SAFER tire dynamics at 32 psi is beyond a better trade off imo.
