1997 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD

Review

We really enjoy this little suv. Ours is a standard transmission. It's 4wd kicks in when you need it. Gas mileage is a plus, plus. We use ours on dirt roads as a SUV. The tire performance is very poor with only 4 plys, we continually have flat tires. The rear door noise is horrible, and could use some insulation or additional soundproofing. We recently utilized the lay down front and rear seats, for our son with a hip cast. A good buy for the dollar. We will buy a newer model in the future.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, and handling.

Suggested Improvements

Tougher tires, for SUV use. Rear door soundproofing, lacks sufficient cup holders.
