I have a Rav 4 and there are a few spots where the paint has chipped off. Where can I buy the touch up paint and how do I find what color is my vehicle? On my old honda, the color was listed on the inside of the driver door. I look on my car and all it has is the recommended tire pressure. I have a off white Rav4.

The code is on the driver's side door jam at the bottom. Below the bar code, the C/TR references the color/ trim.

Not sure if things change year to year. My RAV sticker is black with white letters. It's not far from the tire pressure sticker you mentioned, but it faces out instead of along the inside jam.
Your code might be 040 (Super White) or 056 (Natural White). Don't think you have Blizzard White, as you described it as off-white.

As previous member said, you can get touch-up pens at the Toy dealer, or maybe save a bit and buy online. Seems like best chance of closest match would be dealer.

Those small touch up bottle that have a brush are fine for very tiny areas where you will not notice. The result is very ugly for bigger areas. You will see brush strokes and the paint is too thick and uneven.

A spray can touch up paint works better. You also need a clear coat paint to match the shine with the rest of the car.
