Any rust issues with the 4.4’s? I’m looking to buy a RAV4 and one is a 2015 in New York. Is there any way to know if this car had rust protection done? Other than looking under the car in person?

My '15 XLE is doing fine here n NYC and I never added any rustproofing to it. I'd be more concerned with general maintenance issues then rust issues. ;)

I appreciate that Mike. Maybe I’ll make a drive a little further north, then.

Good luck and happy hunting! I bought mine new in MD at the CARMAX dealership. (y)

I’m told rustproofing on most if bot all Toyotas is excellent. Probably no need to coat, perhaps just power wash off the salt and sand.

I live in Canada (Quebec) where there is lots of road salt.
I am rusting under one tail light where the paint had chipped. That is all for now on my 2014.
