I can't recall exactly when I took delivery of my RAV4, but the system will not allow me to leave the space blank, so I've input a dummy date. It was during the later part of '02. Trusty RAV4 was going great until the last year or so. I maintained a range of 120 for quite a number of years (with no repairs of any kind), and then gradually started losing range over the past several years. I was down to about eighty or so, and in the past year it's gone down to thirty. Just in past week, it's lost ten miles. I suppose that this battery is not long for this world...
