I’ve always been fond of Toyota vehicles and when I saw the 2017 Toyota Rav4 AWD SUV show up at my door, I darn near ran the driver down I was so excited…LOL! The Toyota Rav4 Platinum color was a beautiful Silver Sky Metallic gray with 18″ Alloy wheels.

Now first I want to talk about a few important facts about this vehicle, like how the government rates the Rav4 AWD SUV 5 stars out of 5 stars! On the frontal crash driver side & passenger side there is a 4 star rating, on side crash front & rear we also have 5 stars, and last the 2017 Toyota Rav4 has a 4star rollover rating. If you ask me, the 2017 Toyota Rav4 is one of the best safety vehicles on the road!

It’s so important to have a safe vehicle like the 2017 Toyota Rav4, not only for the consumers, but for their families also, after all, why purchase a vehicle that wouldn’t keep you and your passengers safe! The 2017 Toyota Rav4 Platinum all wheel drive SUV is fully loaded with so many innovative features right at your fingertips like the awesome power steering wheel…trust me you will be amazed!

The Rav4 leather wrapped power steering wheel is equipped with many controls like, auto and bluetooth control  buttons. The Toyota Rav4 Platinum AWD SUV has a 2.5L DOHC 4 cylinder engine with 176 horsepower.

When I tell you this beautiful car has great get up and go power performance, it does! Even though it has the power to get up and go the Rave4 engine is also equipped with a function(button to push) for economy & sports to help the consumer save fuel, that alone is a great function to utilize if you’re headed on a trip!  You see the 2017 Toyota Rav4 AWD gets 22MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway! The Rav4 also is equipped with a 5 speed automatic trans with dynamic torque all wheel drive.

The 2017 Toyota Rav4 Platinum AWD SUV  has safety sensors lane assist along with steering assist, stability control, smart stop technology, rear cross traffic alert, latch lower anchor & tether for children, high beam lights, anti-lock brakes, foot activated lift gate, powered moonroof, 12volt power outlets, a USB port and much more!

Sometimes backing up can be a challenge, but not with the Toyota Rav4 AWD because this awesome vehicle also has a back up camera so you can see exactly what’s behind you at all times!

Now, let’s talk a little about the interior. Available to you are dual zone climate controls, navigation system, Sirius XM radio, and a Dr. Smart Key system with push button start.

The color combination inside was Awesome and blended so well together. You have the stylish black and gray color that brought out the beautifully well designed front and back leather seats. The Rav4 AWD SUV also had their signature Rav4 carpet from the back to the trunk area.

I loved everything about the Rav4, from the awesome well made design, to the beautiful interior and exterior, to the futuristic innovative functions, right down to the deep large truck space, and smooth ride ability! It’s the type of mid size crossover that you dream about having for you and your family!

My husband and I took off for the weekend in the 2017 Toyota Rav4 Platinum AWD SUV and I must confess, I was amazed, impressed, excited, very comfortable, and extremely happy!!If I had to select a crossover SUV, you better believe the 2017 Toyota Rav4 AWD would be at the top of the list! Even my daughter Lex loved the 2017 Toyota Rav4 AWD , we rode in style everyday when dropping her off to school! This vehicle had many heads turning, even mines…LOL!

Soon it was time, time to say good bye to the Rav4, the first thing that came to my mind was to sing the Carol Burnett show theme song:

I’m so glad we had this time together

Just to have a laugh or sing a song

Seems we just get started

and before you know it

Comes the time we have to say

So long……..

  5. I had a 1995 Camry that lasted for 18 years. When I sold it , it had well over 300,000 miles & was still running like a champ! I sold it to a young man, it was his 1st car. It made a perfect 1st car for him. It had no major problems, just a few little things that needed repair. I took great care of it & I loved it & I cried when he drove off with it.
