The Little Toyota That Could.
By leftofthenormal on
2001 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The mext-gen Toyota Rav4 follows suit
with the mini-SUV craze. It does it's
job, and does it well. It looks GREAT
inside and out, with traditional Toyota
reliability and build quality. The
2.0L I4 is pretty peppy, abeit it has
to rev like mad to produce torque when
climbing up hills and hard driving. It
wasn't meant to race, so that really
shouldn't matter. As long as you don't
lead-foot it 24/7, it's quick to get up
and go. With the L package, the car
really shines.Gas milage is OK for a
car of this size, but it's all in how
you drive it. Usually gets around 22-24
The body style, revvy little engine,
and nimble handling.
Optional V6 would make this SUV FLY.
The base-model shouldn't look
so...cheap. Other than that, it's worth
your 24K you'll put into a new one.
