Is the Rav4 as versatile as the 4runner. Need a beach vehicle but not sure is the
Rav4 is an off-road vehicle like the 4runner. Is the 4wd a true 4wd. Can I lock
in all 4 wheels.


  • Yes we have a 2010 and it locks in and we use it on the is great
  • Has anyone had a problem with the Rav 4..2010 with a sticking gas petal?

    reasonable request.....sorry about that......would like to know more about the beach being used. Trying to decide if the Rav4 will be suitable on Fire Island NY seems that I more info regarding the traction control on the 09-10 Ravs. Do you engage the 4wheel lock and then turn off the traction to simulate a true 4WD like the jeeps?
  • Is there anything additional you need to do when going on the beach ?

    How much do you take the tire pressure to ?

    How do you reset the tire pressure light ? Do you need to overfill the tires ?

    Do you need to disengage the traction control

    Thanks for the help
  • typically the tire pressure runs between 12-15 lbs before entering the beach.
    traction control should be disengaged.
    speed limit is 10 mph
    in order to reset the tire pressure light you need to overinflate the tires by 4 lbs
  • Thanks for the information .

    Can you tell me how the 4 WD drive lock worked for you . This was a big selling point to me since most if not all SUVS in this range do not have the lock
