Any thoughts on like/dislikes?
My wife has a 2016 Rav4. Hood shakes by the cowl area while on the highway ... very annoying especially on a sunny day.
Poor location for the sport mode switch ... should be on the steering wheel.
Don't like the fabric on the door panels.

    Haven't noticed the hood shake. You might ask the dealer to see if they can put in a rubber damper. In my 2006, one fell out and the hood made noise.

    I can say the 2016 XLE is a BIG upgrade from my 2006 Sport. Most everything is great...except:

    *Loss of cuby-holes on the left of the steering wheel (where I used to keep the garage door clicker), cubby-hole in the front part of the raised console, loss of the door in the area above the glove compartment.
    *With the seats folded down, I can't put anything on the rear passenger floorboard like I used to
    *The cargo area, with seats folded down appears to be smaller than the 2006 version. Not sure why since the dimensions are about the same.
    *Roof cross bars are now an 'option;? Just give us the roof bars Toyota!
    *App selection on the Entune system is very, very sad. Toyota should just go with Android/IOS car OS instead of their own proprietary one. I do like the cell phone data sharing however.
    *Navigation map is about 2 years out of date, and there have been no updates since.
    *Voice command system claims to be 'natural language' but not my natural language, apparently. *Note: I've only spoken English for about 45 years.

    That's about all I can think of at this point ;-)
