1998 Toyota RAV4 L Special Edition 4dr SUV


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.

Best Features

Love front wheel drive. Don't need 4 wheel unless in very, very deep snow or off road. Which I don't do. But have to say handdled very well in deep snow when we did have it. Love the sound system

Worst Features

I don't get as good of gas mileage on highway as advertised, about 22 mpg, but then again older car. A bit noisy on the highway. Antilock brakes should be standard on this model and especially for the higher price.
