2001 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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 MPG.

Favorite Features

The body style, revvy little engine, and nimble handling.

Suggested Improvements

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.
