It helps the environment and my wallet to drive an SUV that utilizes fewer resources than most other compact SUV out there. The RAV4 is reliable, fuel efficient and economical to own (parts are fairly reasonable). I recommend this to anyone who cares about reliability, the environment and the price of gas today. Keep more cash in your wallet... drive a Toyota RAV4 people! Some may say it is not a cool car for guys to drive. I have heard it described as a "female's" car. Well, if this is the case, then those "females" are some very smart people on this planet. They happened to stumble on a money saver!!
Its fuel efficiency, city driving I can get 22 mpg (not bad for an AWD SUV). A full tank of gas gets you approximately 275 miles
Could use a litle more power on acceleration. I have the 2002 RAV4, with a 2.0 Liter. Newer models have the 2.5L. This may make a difference.
