2001 RAV4 Bullet proof reliabilty
By Jimboo2 on
2001 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
We bought in Dec. 2000 brand new to replace Tercel. Love compactness with great interior room. Fun to drive fits anywhere. Bulletproof reliability. Wife never wants to sell. Replaced timing chain at 60K and had O2 sensor done at 62K. I really wonder if dealership is the best place for repairs, very expensive. Live in New England and put on Bridgestone Blizzaks in Nov. runs thru foot of snow like AWD. Excellent value.
Usable interior space with parking very easy. Good acceleration and small turning radius. RELIABILITY.
Could use more comfortable seats for longer journeys.
