1999 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD

Review

A sure-footed, compact pseudo-SUV that's fun to drive. Consistently gets 26mpg and drives great in all weather. Feels nice sitting high but it can't corner without feeling tippy. Acceleration is poor (compared to my 98 corolla). Hate that the tailgate doesn't open down or up or have a window that opens. There's no way to carry long items such as a ladder or PVC pipe. Cargo footprint really is no bigger than a Camry so "SUV" seems kind of a misnomer. Due to small cargo space, non-opening rear window & lack of power we are looking to replace our RAV4 with a Suburu Baja.

Best Features

Toyota reliability. No problems whatsoever. Rides nice. Reclining rear seats and flexible-folding rear seats. Full-size spare tire.

Worst Features

Needs antenna fix - reception is terrible due to short fixed length antenna. Add rear window or drop-down tailgate to allow long objects. Make rear seats completely removable.
