Bought this '98 Rav4 in 2001 for
driving around town and light off-road
excursions. It has been extremely
reliable and performs well in Southern
Arizona. Handles well in tight spots
and seems to be holding up to the
rugged road conditions in "The Old
Pueblo." Took it off-road a few times
and the AWD was perfect on dirt roads.
The 4 cyl. engine is a little
underpowered, but great fuel economy.
No major problems in over 3 years.
