1998 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV

Review

A wholly functional around town vehicle. The four-door model is near perfect size for the family with one or two small children. Mechanically sound, if a bit noisy even with good tires. Smooth in high-speed corners. Paint and interior upholstery holding up well, even in Florida sun. Lots of visibility at all angles. Does groceries well. Not a long distance vehicle. Not a car I could get emotionally attached to.

Favorite Features

When I go to places where there is crowded parking lots, I take the RAV4, not my pickup. Slides in and out of tight spaces. Nimble. Reliable to the point of being almost maintenance-free.

Suggested Improvements

Underpowered. Poor gas mileage...it should do better for its size. Noisy. Gear ratio aggravating on the interstate; slightest upgrade causes it to downshift (assuming you're trying to keep a steady speed on cruise control). Little space between driver and passenger seats.
