Thus, we highly recommend you to read car manufacturers’ instructions on oil selection. Below, our team is willing to propose a broad range of engine oils suitable for Toyota Rav4.
We hope this data will help you to choose oil most suitable for you, recommended for the US, under normal conditions. In case your region has abnormal weather conditions (too low or too high temperatures), as well as for severe operating conditions, we kindly ask you to refer to your car instruction, or contact official representative Toyota in your region.
