Hi all,

my daughter has recently taken delivery of her GXL hybrid, and has a rattle in the dashboard in the centre, car has done only 500 odd kms, just wondering if any other owners have this rattle as well, she will be reporting this to the dealer at the 1000ks complimentary service

otherwise she loves it

cheers

Eric

Glad the family is enjoying the new Rav. Hopefully the annoying rattle issue is resolved at service time.

I like the concept / size ect, but still cannot come to grips with CVT gearboxes.

Mine has the same thing , i normally rest my knee against it to make it go away. Should be an easy fix.

Hi Jared, sounds like your rattle is in a different spot, hers was on passenger side, just off centre. 
All fixed now, dealer had car for nearly 3 weeks while parts arrived from Sydney, they removed the dash in its entirety, and found 3 broken felt clips, ordered a full set of clips, but only 3 arrived so had to re-order, hence the wait, they went over the top and added more foam to each clip, problem solved. 
She was given a current model Petrol Camry, which she was not impressed with, she said it had poor acceleration, and could not get the seat adjusted to make it comfortable for her, giving her a sore back and shoulders, dealer swapped it with current RAV4 Edge(petrol); which was similar to the Camry in performance, she is so glad to have hybrid back...rattle free!
