  1. Real world off road test of the Hybrid AWD. As reviewer said, not really the terrain the RAV4 is built for, but good to see how it coped.
  2. Thanks for the extra photos PeteB, definitely help. Looks like a weekend job of carefully removing the 3M sticky mount and reinstalling
  3. I had the new Nextbase 422 dashcam fitted by my dealer about a week after getting my new RAV4. I got the optional rear facing camera with it, so it works much like the Nextbase Duo. Dealer fitted the camera to the passenger side, apparently because of lack of space anywhere else and having to keep to the rules about the dashcam not sitting more than 40mm into the windscreen wiper area. I now have two problems, one it sits above the windscreen wiper area (passenger side doesn’t clear the whole windscreen) so rain hides the road and if the passenger puts their visor down it blocks the rear facing camera. Anyone got any pictures of how their dashcam is installed they could share with me?
  4. I had lots of questions on tyres before I bought my AWD Dynamic, even asked some of them on the Toyota blog. Fed back to dealer it was a shame that the AWD versions didn’t come with all season tyres, I will probably get them swapped at some point. Any thoughts on the recommend tyre rotation frequency for AWD from the owners manual? AWD models: To equalize tire wear and help extend tire life, Toyota recommends that tire rotation is carried out approximately every 5000 km (3000 miles). For me that’s about every 3 months. Was intending to do a season swap for now.
  5. Found a YouTube site that uses roller plates to test AWD vehicles in different combinations of wheel slipping and modes. They’ve just uploaded videos for the new RAV4 including both hybrid and petrol models (which are available across parts of Europe and other countries) This link is to the hybrid vs petrol comparison. https://youtu.be/cJeFOLc_0Sw
  6. I’ve got a Dynamic AWD in obsidian blue, no AWD badge but the 4 in rav4 is in black
  7. Having the same problem with estore, can't get any other apps loaded. I can get fuel prices and weather via voice commands though 🤷‍♂️
  8. Screenshot from my RAV4 Dynamic delivered 10th May. Not done any updates myself so assuming it came delivered with these versions
