Ah, thanks. Hmm, I thought extended charge was not disabled after doing an extended charge before my long trip. Fiddled with the controls some tonight I think I understand it better and I think I have it disabled this time. More UI design fail.

Another vote for some sort of spare tire as standard issue with the Rav4 EV. After 4 months of driving and 4300 miles I had my first flat this morning. Looked like a piece of sheet metal and I wasn't confident pumping up the tire would allow me to drive the three miles to the dealer so I used the Safety Connect button. Got a tow to Hanlees Toyota. It was 2 hours from when I called to when I was back on the road. No charge of course. All in all, not bad but lucky I was close to a dealer and would prefer to have a small spare.

My '88 944S had a spare that was extra compact because it was stored without air in the tire. Obviously a pump was included. I've never looked to see if something similar is available in the aftermarket.

That would be perfect for us.
