1997 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD

Review

Glad I have the manual transmission since it's underpowered. Gas consumption isn't SUVish, but not as good as a 4cyl sedan. Can haul quite a bit of stuff, but it slides around alot (no stability in cargo area). I like that you sit higher than regular cars, but it doesn't drive like large SUV. Parks like a dream in the city. Best on city streets, country roads. Ok on the highway but a bit noisy. Ride isn't the best -- more trucklike than carlike. Fun to drive! Very handy for hauling smaller items, except golf clubs don't lay flat across trunk - one rear seat has to be folded up.

Favorite Features

Manual Transmission, cruise control very convenient and steady, fold up seats for cargo space. Antilock brakes.

Suggested Improvements

Headlamps-leave dark spot,had them realigned twice/Gearing-almost have to be stopped for 1st yet 2nd lags at low speed/Autounlock-on trunk to eleviate unlocking two doors when placing items in trunk then getting in drivers seat
