Please report on your RAV4 mileage here (2006 and later model years please).
Include your odometer reading, city/highway mix, driving style or anything else you think may help others compare their mpg with yours. Thanks!

Do you have the V-6 4wd model?
Response to message:
Mine has 6500 miles on it now and it gets 24 MPG with mostly city and some highway miles. It gets 28 MPG with strictly highway miles. The cars I've owned in the past got get better then the EPA ratings. Actually, this is the first car I've had that gets at or less than the EPA ratings. I think I'll wait until I get about 10 thousand miles on it before I decide Toyota pulled a fast one.

The EPA does the rating, so I don't think you can blame Toyota!

I have a 4 cylinder 2WD. I have about 7500 miles on it now. Gas mileage is still about the same.

I hear you, but why is this the only car I've had that does not get at least the EPA rating.

What MPG are you getting after 7500 miles? I have 1300 miles on mine (4 cylinder, 2 wheel drive Ltd.) and still only getting 21.6, mostly city. Like you, I get over the EPA for all of my cars (Civic, Accord, Lancer).

Well the EPA rating is 28MPG Highway I think and your getting 28 MPG highway. And Toyota is pulling a fast one?

I'm new to this board and finding the discussions very interesting.
I'm surprised at the poor mpg being discussed here. I have 2500 miles on my new Rav4 and am getting anywhere from 27.6 to 30 mpg. (lower when hubby drives it/higher for me)
I took it to the dealer today 'cause the front windows rattle when they are down about 1/3 of the way. I was told that they took the panel off and noticed that the window shifted when it was going down and there is nothing they can do about the rattle. They even stated that this is "probably a design flaw". I'm not too happy about that.
I purchased the 4 cyl and would opt for the 6 next time around.

25.7 MPG on my limited V-6 4X4 all highway on 3rd tankful.
Happy because my dealer said it would get better as it gets broke in. Will be happy with up to 30 MPG on all highway and 24 city/highway combo.

Between 21-22 4wd and 4 cylinder 87 octane.
Real time milage.
