by 1996 Toyota RAV4 on Apr 5, 2009 Vehicle: 1996 Toyota RAV4 2dr SUV
Purchased my RAV4 as a tow car for large motorhome.I have an interchangeable brush guard and tow bar. Very easy to tow, fun to drive. 29 MPG, with 5 speed. Has front and back sun roof. Well built little car, serviced every 3000 miles, not one single problem. I like the cargo style door in back with fold down seats there is a nice storage area. It has 116,000 miles and is driven about 40 total miles each day to work. Blue paint still looks new. I will buy another one when this one wears out... however, I hope for another 100,000 miles.

I have 92,000 miles and service it every 3000 miles. Drive 18 miles to work each day at around 26 MPG. My RAV is a five speed and I tow it behind a large RV, great RV tow car. I have an interchangeable brush guard and tow assembley on front. Great AC and heat and park anywhere. I have really enjoyed the car. Fun in the mountains of north Georgia. Double sun roof, paint finish is still very good. Paid $11,500 for the car about seven or eight years ago. I think it is a good little car. I plan to keep the car until the wheels fall off.

Toyota's are good cars but I love my Rav 4! It runs good and its pretty convenient sometimes. You can get around small places easier than other cars. I have never had any major mechanical problems with it. Only little things. They are really great on gas especially now!!!

I bought my 1996 2 door RAV4 in 2000
and it's the most fun car I've ever
driven. Got rid of my 2000 Honda
Accord and bought the RAV4 and have
never regretted it. It rides higher
than the Accord and I do not feel at
all claustraphobic (is that fear of
small places or fear of Santa?). It's
plenty peepy for a 4 cylinder and the
styling is awesome. It's a shame they
don't make the 2 door RAV4 anymore.
There is a HUGE international fan club
for the original RAV4.
