I just bought a brand new 2020 Rav4 Hybrid and in the second week of owning it, I let it sit for 2 days undriven and I was shocked when I went to drive it and the battery was dead. I had to call roadside assistance for a jump and then drove it to the dealer. Turns out this is a known issue with the 12v battery and there is a software update available for it. If you own a 2019-2020 Rav4 Hybrid, take it to the dealer ASAP or you might end up very late for work like I was.
