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....
#3910 of 4032 The RAV4 inventory / fulfillment process sucks
Mar 09, 2013 (6:31 pm)
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.

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.

#3916 of 4032 Bought 2013 RAV4 XLE FWD
Mar 31, 2013 (8:16 am)
2013 RAV4 XLE, no options except mats, for $23,414 before tax and tags at Ardmore Toyota, PA. That makes it $280 under invoice, which is an OK price, based on my research, and communication with several dealers over email.
The deal was made in the last two days of the month, as often recommended here and elsewhere.
Waiting for the pickup - they had to bring it in from another dealership in the color combination (white/tan) my wife wanted. According to the dealer, XLE is made mostly in AWD - they only had 1 XLE FWD in stock, blue/black (the latter being a no-go for us).
