Hello to the Remaining Rav4 EV Owners Out There

My wife and I are still enjoying our Rav4 EV at 76K miles, after going through the typical early cycle of replacing the drive motor, etc. The car has been trouble-free for 20K miles or more. I am sad to see that there are few postings being made, as the number of Rav4EV owners dwindles. I miss the e...

Re: Anyone else lose Entunes functionality?

Question Regarding Charge management: While I don't have all the specifics, I am aware that many of the functions of the Entunes are going away with the demise of 3G. My question is about the charge management, which no longer seems to be available. What I want to be able to do is to charge our Rav4...

Re: Group Buy on "Powered by Tesla" License Plate Frames

I just installed the second of two license plate frames from EVPlates.com (originally bought two) after nearly four years on the first one. Wish I had more. The original company seems to have gone out of business. Does anyone know someone who can replicate the original frames we ordered. Anyone else...

Re: Car won't charge / Onboard Charger Failure

Sadly, at 42,000 miles, my wife and I are joining the chorus of those having charging issues. Last night, our 2014 Rav4EV would not accept a charge--the two charging lights would both blink after about 30 seconds, with a warning message on the dash. After about 4-5 tries, the car finally accepted a ...

Re: Vehicle Service Agreement Towing Limitations

With the assistance of Alex Green, at Toyota Corporate, we finally received a pre-authorization for the towing, which cost $453. We took the easiest route, which was to pre-pay the towing fees and apply for reimbursement. I didn't feel that it was AAA's problem, and didn't use our new 100-mile towin...

Vehicle Service Agreement Towing Limitations

My wife and I purchased a 10-year, 125,000 mile Platinum extended warranty from Toyota for our Rav4 EV. While I am sure that it will "save our bacon" at a given point, it certainly fell short in terms of towing our disabled vehicle. Last week, our Rav4EV began shuddering and vibrating when...

Re: Leviton EVB40-PST 40 AMP Charger Stopped Working

About 3 weeks ago, our 2 year, 7 month old Leviton EVB40-PST 40 amp charger suddenly would not charge our Rav4 EV. When I plugged the charger into the vehicle, it would cycle on with a couple of loud clicks, charge for about 45 seconds, click loudly a couple more times, and then shut down. It wasn't...

Re: Cheapest RAV4 EV Toyota Extended Warranty

I can wholeheartedly recommend Troy Dietrich at Greenfield Toyota & Ford of Greenfield, MA. I just bought my third extended warranty from him. Specially, we just bought the 10yr/125K warranty for our Rav4 EV (and our Toyota Tacoma). Yes, I know that $1,795 is a lot of money, but it brings peace ...

Re: Who is currently waiting for a drive unit replacement?

This may be a good thread to post my experience in having our drive unit replaced on our 2014 Rav4 EV at 25K. I can remember the exact day when our drive unit began making noise. It progressively got louder--a whine that could be heard at between 14-22 mph, which would then dissipate or be drowned o...

Re: Confused about Rebates

Although I am sure it has been addressed any number of times in this forum, I want to remind readers to double check the State and Federal rebates and be sure which if any they directly qualify for. Like many, my wife and I leased our 2014 Rav4 EV through a southern California Toyota dealer (Tustin ...
