1996 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD


I purchased my 1996 RAV-4 in May 2000 when it had only 28,000 miles on it, one previous owner and clean as a whistle! It has proven to be a very reliable and appropriate vehicle for me. It's the first car I've ever owned that I feel truly fits my personality. Aside from the fact that it has only a 4-cyl engine which makes acceleration onto highways a bit of a challenge, I just love this car! I want to trade my 1996 for a newer model, but I don't really like the body style of the newer RAVs. I wish Toyota had left well enough alone.

Best Features

The car is fun to drive and I get great gas mileage. As far as reliability goes.. (well it is a Toyota, need I say more?) Because my RAV came equipped with a hitch, I can hook up my 4X6 trailer and off to Home Depot I go!

Worst Features

It is what it is, but more power would be great... maybe a V6 option on future models?
