Review of the 2003 Toyota RAV4

  • A solid and pleasing package, if a tad underpowered.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Steers and handles like a car, thoughtful cabin design, well-built interior.

  • Cons

    Small displacement engine for the class, noisy, most of the desirable equipment is optional.

  • What's New for 2003

    Already sporty-looking, the RAV4 compact SUV gets even sportier thanks to a new optional sport package that adds a new grille, a hood scoop, color-keyed door handles, heated exterior mirrors, tubular roof rack and gray-painted bumpers and overfenders. Inside, the package adds special sport fabric seats.

Great car!

Vehicle: 2003 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Just traded in my 2007 Ford F-150 for the Rav4 to get better fuel economy. I was a little hesitant going from a v8 to a 4 cyl., but this car did not dissapoint! I recently had a spinal fusion and I can drive this car all day without it bothering my back. I am also a single mom of a two year old, this car has room enough for him and all of his "gear" as well as another friend. The gas mileage is great(especialy compared to my F-150).

I just purchased a 2003 pre-owned RAV4 after owning a 4Runner Sport V8 for over 8 years. I loved my 4Runner and hated to sell it, but it was time to "downsize" to something smaller with better gas mileage. I couldn't be happier!! After one week, I still can't wait to drive it the next day. It's the perfect size for me and fun to drive. I love the large front windshield visibility, tight steering, and turning radius. I look forward to owning this RAV4 for a long long time!! I'm a Toyota fan forever!

The RAV 4L is well built and very reliable. It is a lot of fun to drive since it can corner on a dime with minimum body roll. The Toyota quality is apparent through out the exterior and interior of the mini suv. Gas mileage is excellent all around on regular unleaded gas.

Great vehicle - it's a blast to drive and an interesting style. Very comfortable and lots of space for the kids and their hockey & soccer equipment. We're constantly running around from event to event, the trunk space is great and larger than most people think for a small SUV. It rides well and has great features - lots of nooks and crannies to store things
