Some Toyota dealerships are so keen to give RAV4 Hybrid customers a chance to beat the long waitlist that they are offering existing RAV4 owners far more than they paid to buy their car back.
Chasing Cars spoke with one RAV4 Hybrid Cruiser 2WD owner who paid $45,000 on-road for their vehicle in early 2020. That owner has now been offered $51,000 to repurchase their vehicle as low-kilometre pre-owned stock.
That is a profit of $6,000 after owning and driving the car for nearly 18 months.
