Review of the 1998 Toyota RAV4

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Cute styling and Toyota reliability.

  • Cons

    Looks like a jellybean. Doen't offer the ultility or value of the Honda CR-V.

    Toyota's mini SUV enters its third year of production with minor changes to the grille, headlights, taillamps and interior. Four-door RAV4s get new seat fabric. A late-year introduction of the new RAV4 convertible makes this sport-ute more appealing for those who live in the sunbelt.

Great vehicle

Absolutely great vehicle. Bought with 112,000 miles- have driven for 1 1/2 years with no problems. Runs like a champ. Plan on giving to daughter to drive 5 years from now. Should easily get another 150,000 on this vehicle.

I'm a tough critic but this car is as reliable as a Toyota gets. I have had over 20 cars and Toyotas have been the most reliable. Over 100,000 on it and I put on the last 50,000. Have done nothing but normal maintenance. Drive belt, tires, brakes, etc. No repairs at all for me other than maintenance. Like the standard features of the "L" version. Very sound quality parts. Feels solid and well put together for a small car.




Perfect small suv

My family and I love this car! It is much more versatile than it looks. You name it and I've fit it in to this car. From a double bed mattress and box spring to christmas trees to childrens play houses. And it is a joy to drive. Who needs big SUVs?




Great car, but some drawbacks

Vehicle: 1998 Toyota RAV4 L Special Edition 4dr SUV

I bought this car and put 50K on it without any problems. It drives great, is very comfortable, and nible around corners. It's just a pretty fun car to drive. I drove it across the cascases during the winter a few times and it works on the snow with ease. I would recommend this car for anyone. But there are some bad points: it's engine is very week. The gas mileage wasn't as good as I thought it would be and it's pretty damn noisy. Everything else about it was excellent, especially its reliability. The only thing i've had to do was give it the old oil change every 3K.




Rav4 review

Vehicle: 1998 Toyota RAV4 L Special Edition 4dr SUV

I get lots of compliments on the way it looks. One of my friends knows that when we go off together, I automatically hand her the keys. I've had no mechanical problems, and I'm pleased with the way it's held its value. The leg room in the back seat is definitely limited, though. It seems to be designed for a single, a couple or a young family. I do wish it had a little more power.
