Hey mkevin, sorry for my late reply, I was busy this few days playing with my new ride. I paid $27415 which is a few dollars over invoice. This plus doc fees taxes tags n reg. I am glad you are reading this parts of the forum, I don't know why not many people are showing much interest in the new rav. But I think as a guideline a couple of hundred dollars over invoice it's about right.

Thanks, for the quick response, totally understandable with a new car at home. I bought a 12' Camry in may last year spent a few days tinkering with entune and everything, I think its probably not getting love right off the bat because its relatively new redesign model, no incentives currently, and its sorta of pricey compared to so many options in the class right now. I haven't been up close to actually see it at the dealership yet. From what I heard the seats are not powered in the LE or XLE which is kinda bad for nowadays, my older 96 avalon had power seats. =) The limited has all the goodies but its cost the same as my 12' Camry SE and that came with a V6 3.5L engine, came with everything except the kitchen sink. But can't compare Toyota reliability to anything else. thanks for a info. $27,415 is a great price, did it came with the NAVI and greenedge speakers?

Nope, it's just the basic limited, invoice I believe is 27408. I really couldn't make myself pay 1500 more for an outdated navi (it is my belief that every single gps on every single brand is not as good as a 300 dol top of the line garmin nuvi) and a few extra speakers. Plus all the screens are same wether with or without nav.
You can't really compare a SUV to a sedan price wise, since the former will always be more expensive. But let me tell you this, on every Trim level the rav4 beats the crv feature wise. I did my research and was really close to buying the crv, even check on hand, until my sister told me to try the rav4. It's worth every penny!

Care to elaborate on how the RAV-R beats the CR-V "feature wise"? I've looked at both and don't see that at all.... .esp since CR-V is the best selling CUV/small SUV.... Both are good vehicles though....like how Honda doesn't "nickel&dime" you on options...the trim either has it or it doesn't. Toyota, OTOH.....
I passed on the 2013 RAV-4 because the local dealers were selling at/just under sticker - told them to let the "uniformed buyers" pay that price....

I was this close to buying the RAV4 but I'm looking at other cars now.
The features (and color) I chose weren't available and none of the dealers in the north/southeast could tell me when it would be available. I made a deposit and waited a month and still no RAV4, so I took back my deposit and am looking for a different vehicle. Not to mention Toyota's website is inferior to just about every other manufacturer - when you know what you want and just need to find out where or when it would be available.
I don't know what logic Toyota uses to get cars to the dealership but something isn't right when you have to purchase, then wait at least 2 months for a car from a "top manufacturer", and it's supposedly coming from somewhere in the US.
If the car you like is on the lot - great. If not, good luck. The dealers can't even tell you when it'll be there.

Both The Rav4 and the CR-V are glorified station wagons. The difference is that the CR-V has perfected it while Toyota is still trying to figure it out. Just from a resale value (using ALG), the CR-V is way better.
#3912 of 4032 toyota features are better

i dont know where are you going with this godeacs, but even on the top trims (limited vs exl) you have push start button, power tailgate, signal side mirrors, u want me to keep going? just because you don't like toyota there is no reason to badmouth them , after all this is a toyota forum.
