The letter said even if I donít buy from them they want my vehicle. Sounds like they have a lot of 2018ís to sell. Why would I buy a 2018 model which is essentially the same as my 2016? Anybody looking for a good deal may want to wait until the 2019 model is available then grab a heavily discounted 2018. I would consider taking a 2018 Highlander that was restyled in 2017 if their deal was legit but they rarely are. I expect from what Iíve seen the 2019 Rav 4 to be in high demand, looks a bit like the Lexis NXT.....
The 2018 is essentially identical to your vehicle. The only major difference is the addition of Toyota Safety Sense P (forward collision alert/automatic emergency braking, dynamic radar cruise control, lane keep assist and automatic high beams). If your vehicle is a 2016 Limited or XLE with convenience package you have these features.

Those Ďoffersí are usually just a ploy to get you into the dealership. With a $2500 cash back offer in many regions this month on new 2018 inventory, that kills the resale value of late model used units.

You can now build your 2019 Rav4 on the Toyota website. This has just been added in the last day or two. I have mine built.

Leasing is great as it gives you options. Youíre on a 2-3yrs test drive. If you really like it, keep it at lease end. If you want the latest model, trade it in at lease end. If you want something totally different, turn it in, hand them the keys and go elsewhere.

I lease all of my vehicles. The peace of mind of always having a car under warranty, along with the latest tech and safety features makes it worth it.
I also lease my main vehicle. I do watch for specials and remain flexible for lease deals.
It is nice to drive a new car every few years with the latest features.


It is cheaper to buy a late model used car and drive it until it drops. I did that for years.
No more.

The 2019 looks better than the previous version. I'd be hesitant to buy the 1st year of a new generation though, let them get the kinks out and buy one later in the generation.

I got a call from the local dealer here in Dallas last week and the first of the 2019's have hit the lot. Time for some test drives guys and gals!

My local dealer has only one on the lot - the base model. I went and looked at it last Sunday when they were closed, so I didn't get to drive it. I really liked the exterior (though would look even better with the fog lights that come with the higher grades), but I was a little disappointed that the interior looked a little cheap. Again, it was the lowest price model available, and I didn't get to sit in or touch the interior; so I'd like to see the higher priced models to compare. I'm more interested in the hybrid version anyway, which is still months away from availability.
