Review

I have been extremely happy with the purchase of this vehicle. I purchased it used with under 30,000 miles on it. I know have 105,000 and its still going strong. I have had very little maintenance on this car. Regular oil changes I believe are a must. I replaced the exhaust system last year (2005)muffler, converter and 2 pipes leading to muffler. I replaced the starter about 4 years ago, but other than that it has been routine maintenance. When I saw this car I knew I had to have it.It was so much fun to drive. I purchased it that very day. Now the car is 10years old it is still fun to drive and is still running like a gem! Thank you Toyota for building such a great car.


Favorite Features

5 speed manual, easy access to rear storage area, with one door access.

Review

I've only had my Rav-4 for 2 months and absolutely love it! It's my first time car but so easy to drive, is higher off the ground than normal cars which is definitely an advantage for a new driver! Fuel economy is great - was told not to buy one as it "drank the gas" - not true at all! Interior is a little bland but it's what you'd expect from a Japanese car.


Favorite Features

The height from the ground. Fuel economy is great.


Suggested Improvements

Would be nice if the sunroof was automatic instead of having to take the whole thing out.
