Thanks Penn RAV,
I agree with you on all points. Today I went out one last time to look at the Cmax Energi, and the 2013 Leaf. I was unimpressed. I'm going to sleep on it, but as it stands now I will buy tomorrow. I have yet to find a negative review of the RAV4 EV.
Wish me luck :)

I agree..couldn't find any negative reviews..except that it sounds like charging timers
are consistently a problem..in Leaf, my charging timers are flawless...still overall, unless
you're going to pony up for the Model S...seems like this is the next best thing out there.

Good luck. I'm sure you'll enjoy! ;)

CONGRATS!!! You got yours for almost 10 large less than me, and that was after I put well over 10 grand in a down payment via a trade-in! I wish I would of waiting! :shock:

So awesome to hear of such great deals! I'm going to hold out until December to buy, hopefully the deals will be as good then!

hi, I live in st Louis and am seriously considering buying a Rav 4 EV. I will be in California in a few weeks and plan to test drive one, and if I like it will have it shipped to my home. I've talked w a local Toyota dealer who said that most maintenance would not be a problem, they are already taking care of the plug-in prius and that the warranty is good across the country. Unfortunately, I'm going to miss the $8800 incentive that expires April 1, but maybe there will be another. I would appreciate any thoughts/comments that any have to offer.

Hey Devin, there used to be an unwritten rule at new car dealerships, that allowed a prospective customer to put an advance "deposit" on a car that s/he wanted to buy at a locked in price. There is probably more than a 50-50 chance Toyota will extend the lucrative cash incentive and 0% financing well beyond April, but if you give them a deposit now, prior to your arrival in CA, and submit a credit app to validate your credit worthiness, they may honor the price a new RAV4 EV is available at thru early April even if you can't sign the papers until later. This may lower the risk of losing out on a great deal. It certainly wouldn't hurt to call and ask.

My wife would like to get either a PHEV or a full electric SUV or CUV. We live in Colorado and own a Volt. We were waiting for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to come to market but if we can get one of these for around the same price we paid for the Volt, then we are ready to buy NOW. If you're a dealer or you know of a good dealer that will work with us being out of state then simply PM me and make a sale.

Aiming 39k after toyota and dealer incentives and would like the transaction to be as painless as possible... lol, if thats even possible at all ;)

I'd say its easy. Try Dianne Whitmore at Carson Toyota, who has already sold and shipped the Rav4 out of state.

Yes... Dianne sold two this week, one to myself, and one to a co-worker. Both to Washington State. ;)
