My 2012 RAV4 EV has reached end of service at 115,000 miles. An EV Fault warning lead to a 14.5k$ estimate from Toyota for a motor replacement. The dealership has offered 500$ for the car. I loved that car but there is no justifying spending on the motor replacement with a 6 yr old battery.

Don't give it away for $500. The battery itself must be worth 10x that. Talk to Tony at QuickChargePower.com

Please call me tomorrow on this. I'm a cash buyer if this car has a clean title.

Fault code notwithstanding, does the car drive at all? Any other issues?

Let me know where the line forms for bidding :)

Car has been fantastic. Check EV System warning came on while on highway. Took car immediately to dealership. Put in new front suspension this year (bushings,control arms). Car has been used as a commute vehicle 43 miles one way every day. Awesome until now.

A sad end to a “frankencar” and a cautionary tale to all RAV 4 EV owners. Wisdom gained? Sale ASAP if you are outside of extended warranty or you will by in the situation I am in with you realizing 0 - blue book value.
