Lol, I honestly have no idea what Toyota was thinking with the 4.4 model. I guess they were just marketing it towards soccer moms, but dropping the V6 engine in my opinion was a huge mistake! I could have bought a brand new 2016 Rav4, but I didn't want one. I wanted a V6 and I really liked the way the 2010 silver rav4 v6 sport looked especially with the SAP.A couple of years ago my Toyota dealer called saying "they needed to replenish their supply of used cars and what a great deal they could offer me on my RAV4 to 'upgrade' to a 4.4 model."
I'd say not. I'd say it's a case where the right hand wanted to get more money out of the left hand. It's all a sales tactic, nothing more.Since January 16, 2016, I have gotten several letters about my 2006 Prius from various Toyota dealers wanting me to sell it to them or trade it in for a newer car. I traded in my Prius for our 2012 RAV4 on January 16th. The dealership was Texas Toyota in Grapevine, TX Last week, I received a letter from Texas Toyota saying that my 2012 RAV4 is high demand and I need to sell it to them or trade it in. Plus itsaid for me to call this number and it was the guy who we purchased the car from. Is this a case where the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing?
