Re: Anyone else lose Entunes functionality?

The Entune Charge Management and Charge Stations apps are still working for me. Perhaps they're not turning these apps on for "new" subscriptions because the sunset date is neigh?

Re: Coolant issue? - all getting heated up on how/what to do

Hey, guys, I might be coming into this late. We've still got our 2012 (purchased Memorial Day 2013). When the 8/100 extended expired on Memorial Day this year, I think we thought "well, we'll drive it into the ground and see what happens." It's doing fine for now, but this is the first I'v...

Re: 6 Years in our Rav4 EV

Facebook reminded me that today was my 6 year anniversary of owning the RAV, so I thought I'd check in. We've put ~70k on ours. The RAV has overall been a pretty good experience. The only non-software issue we've had was with the propulsion unit noise, which became very severe in 2015, and we had it...

Re: Rav4 EV test drive question

The high-pitched whine is a well-known and extremely common issue with the RAV4 EV, and that thread is almost certainly referring to what you experienced. The Tesla propulsion unit used in these cars has a tendency to develop a high-pitched whine over time, and the whine has become so severe for man...

Re: Moving out of CA: sell or keep?

We'll be in Milwaukee, and I think the RAV would be great for city driving, but we have family 100+m away in Rockford that we expect to be visiting frequently. There's no chademo stations along that route, unfortunately, although there is a Tesla Supercharger in Rockford. My internal debate is wheth...

Moving out of CA: sell or keep?

Next month, I'm going to be saying goodbye to California and hello to Wisconsin, and I've been mulling over the fate of our 2012. It's fully paid off, 59900 miles, and I did purchase the platinum warranty. It's going to cost around $1000 to ship to where we'll be. We've been lucky to have an unprobl...

Preferred shipping companies?

I'm probably going to be moving a ways away from SF sometime within the year, and will need to ship my still-trusty 2012 RAV4 EV and possibly my gas-burner too. Can any of you provide recommendations for a shipping firm originating from San Francisco? Many thanks.

Re: Entunes problems

So, this is happening to me too, and I've gone ahead and called this one in. Let me be blunt, I've called this in every year since I've owned the vehicle, and I'm sick of it. I've sort of joked that I own the "magic" RAV4 EV in the past, since my 2012 still has great range, charges on-time...

Re: Leviton 40 amp charger; how to program for EV rates

You're in PG&E territory where EV-A starts at 11:00pm, right? We have our departure time set very early, use the Leviton 40A, and we never see the car start charging before 11pm even when we've got a low SOC at the end of the day. It's nice to set the departure time accurately IMO because the ca...

Re: Happy New Year (but December 31st was on the 31st!!!)

Ours had the charge timer start itself up automatically at 3:12am on 12/31/2015, and at 5:22am on 1/1/2016; no issues here. I experienced the 31st-of-the-month bug early on in our ownership, but not since October of 2013 or so.
