Hey Guys,

New to the forums here.. I'm thinking about buying a Rav4 from this generation, something likely with 75-100k miles on it. The number one reason I'm thinking Toyota is because of reliability reputation. Are there Rav4 years in this generation that I need to watch out for?? Are there other years/generations that offer better reliability? Anything else I should know before purchasing?

Thanks!

For sure 2011 - 2012 model years had the fewest issues.

If going older than that, I'd push for 2009 or later, especially if you're looking at getting the 4-cylinder engine, as before 2009 a different engine was used that often burned a lot of oil.

Otherwise, the Search function really is your best friend.
