1996 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD

Review

4 Wheel Drive 2.0L 3S-FE engine 5 Speed I say "great" car in the title... However mechanically this car is a horror story to work on. Toyota really did not think about maintenance when designing this car. It's definitely not a Honda... Plan on small working spaces, and hard to reach bolts for any maintenance other then oil changes. When I bought it in 2010 the car was leaking oil out of just about every orifice. So when buying one plan on changing some seals Aside from all that this car is wonderful to drive. I've taken it up mountains, through rivers, over rainy freeways, dirt roads. It handles like a car, but can take the beating of a truck.

Best Features

Versatility - it can take you to work or haul a load

Worst Features

Noise reduction - Any speed over 75 is horribly noisy Redesign engine compartment to make maintenance possible without dropping the engine Re-tune the computer for a more conservative A/F map, and reduce the risks of detonation, or make it possible to adjust the timing manually
