used RAV4 after 6 years
By Bikerrandy on
2001 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
We bought our RAV4 used after a lease turnin @ 36K miles. We've put 46K on it so far. At first we drove it 100+ mi. a day commuting. Now we're both retired and it get's a lot less use, but it is 1 of the best cars we have ever owned in so many ways. On the road we get 30-31 mpg on reg. I've towed 1,500#s of stuff from norCal to Canada effortlessly. I've heard lately some owners have had auto. tranny disasters. We have seen nothing of that so far. I wonder if it's how others use their RAV4. We don't do much stop & go. Finally had to replace the front brake pads at 73.6K mi. I've owned Toyotas both new & used since `75 and have never regretted it. We hope to keep this car forever
Easy parking, comfort, leg room, little extras like can holders, acc. plugs, hooks for groceries, removable rear seats, ease of rear door opening.
