2000 Toyota RAV4 SUV L Special Edition 4dr SUV


Review

We watched Rav from day-one. In 2000, my husband surprised me for my B-day with a RAV4L (ltd edition). I love the large windows & almost no blind spots; I sit up high enough for a birdseye view without needing a ladder to get in! I love the smaller steering wheel and it turns on a dime; park it anywhere. The mileage can't be beat for highway road trips; city isn't bad either. Seats are formed & back- supporting. Everything is at your fingertips. It's a dream to drive. I love my RAV4L, can you tell? Get metallic green!


Favorite Features

Lg. Windows, Easy to read dashboard, Comfy back-supporting seats, Foot rest for left-foot, Perfect height on the road, Side-opening tailgate(!), & Ltd Edition has two hanging-slide off shoulder bags ... oh-so-handy, really adjustable headrests and great sounding stereo system


Suggested Improvements

Overhead drop-holder for sunglasses; taller/deeper between the seats compartment; deeper & larger-around cup holders; Sunvisors w/hidden pull-down sunscreen 3-5" long (also center-edge sunscreen extenders); sturdy holder for a pen/pencil; angled phone holder

Review

this is my mothers car, but i tend to drive this a lot in the winter when it snows. it handles very well in the snow much to my suprise. i feel very safe with the control and traction i get from the 4 wheel drive. trunk space is excellent...i fit a lot of stuff in the back that i thought would never fit. Needs more interior leg room.I tend to be cramped up especially when theres people in the back seat (im 6'1"). There is also a lot of wind noise, cheap dash. I kinda feel funny driving it because its not really my style...This car is definitely a "chick car" but it get does the job done


Favorite Features

great gas mileage, back seats fold down for xtra storage space, very reliable, snow handling, tough little 4x4


Suggested Improvements

could use more power but with power comes poor gas milage, better cup holders, more leg room, standard CD player!!!!

Review

I've had others that were bigger but this one has personality. Even though the 2000 was the last year of this styling, I'm glad I got it when I did. I think the newer models are okay but the 2000 and earlier are set apart. Yes, the pick up is a bit slow - Have you ever found yourself shaking back and forth to try to help it out? - but the truck has heart. I can reach into the backseat without even getting out!


Favorite Features

The body styling is different then what's out there. When I see another RAV on the road it attracts my eye.


Suggested Improvements

Okay - power! and those cupholder in the front dash are pitiful. They are so close to the dash only a short cup or can of soda fits in them.

Review

It is very sporty and handles like a sports car. After 2 1/2 years, but only 14000 miles, I know why we drive the 98 Expedition everywhere. The ride is not very comfortable, and on the open highway, the kids in the back seat were scared for the first month because they felt like they were riding in the back of an old pickup. It is loud and has lots of wheel and highway noise. Also, there are 3 loud and irritating trim or structural rattles and noises that are relentless in all driving conditions. It is great for around town, but after 2 1/2 years, it's not for me.


Favorite Features

Styling exterior & interior handling transmission engine- just right


Suggested Improvements

Noise stereo noise comfort rattles window squeaks highway noise rooftop unis loose noise
