So my new Rav 4 Dynamic is due with the dealer 1 week from today!  Do you think the date could still change at this stage?

... Unless you have the keys in your hand, they can change it.

Hi there, I ordered mid-March and it is 2WD, I have no need for AWD (even tho I know the name Rav4 indicates 4WD, lol) I ordered the JBL, Moonroof and All Round Camera's instead.  I was very disappointed there wasn't a self parking option, I currently have a Nissan XTrail and it has self parking, I will just have to learn to live without it, lol

The cameras are awesome, one of the best features of the car.

I too was disappointed about the lack of self parking - I traded a 2016 Prius Excel for my RAV4 Excel - the (cheaper) Prius has a really good system, and the (smaller, cheaper SUV) C-HR gets it too - so it's pretty shameful of Toyota not to include it on the RAV4.

yes, you're pretty unlucky there - I hope they sort it for you.

I may have a problem with the memories on my electric driver's seat - I can't get that to work, but maybe I'm not doing it right.  My dealer will take a look on Saturday when I got to collect my full size spare wheel and have it's TPWS sensor coded to the car.

I think I'm doing it right, I've used them ok on some Lexus models I've been lent in the past (which also memorised the steering reach & rake, plus door mirror positions), and I had the manual page open on my phone when I was trying, but you never know.  One way or the other, hopefully it'll be sorted Saturday.

Enjoy and post a picture when it arrives.

I also ordered the 2WD Dynamic in Obsidian Blue at the end of May. Still hoping for delivery Sept/Oct.  Have not gone with any extras but hoping model will have Apple Carplay included at build date.

I'm glad this got raised, somehow I thought of the process for resetting Auto Windows after Battery removal - I took the seat to each extreme setting and held the switch for a further 5 seconds, and hey presto!  Working memories.  In my case, 1 driving, 2 easier entry/exit!

How cruel can the dealer be. After being told a couple of weeks ago my car would be arriving early on the 12 July. Then on the 12 July told, slight delay as Toyota wouldn't release the car as they needed to do some work on the brakes whilst still at the key side. Dealer rung me today to say "car will be with us shortly, but still cant give a date, but here is the registration number", great I got a plate number but no car. So close but yet so far.

Took Rav in for service and first MOT, asked about the new Rav4 and he said I can take a test drive if I want but lead times are now nearly a year. Battery shortage apparently.

I was told my car was delayed because of a shortage of wheels then inflation canisters !!!!! also told that my car had been allocated a number plate, when I phoned DVLA to ask why I had a registration number but dealer said they were not allowed to register it i was told by the DVLA that it could not be allocated a reg plate without being registered, on relaying this information to the dealer (hey presto) you can pick your car up in 2 days cant wait for my free service to appear (or not)

How can their be a shortage of this and that when I actually don’t see any on the roads?  Are other countries being provided for first?
