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


Review

We own a 1998 Rav4, decided to get a 2003. It is Spectra Mica Blue, with a moon roof, luggage rack, 2 WD auto trans, and Quick Pkg. Improvements since 1998 are impressive. The ride is smoother, seats are very comfortable, seating in the back is adjustable for more legroom, there are lots more nooks and crannies for storage, cup holders (4) that are adjustable, a neat little eyeglass holder hidden under steering wheel, nice small storage area under the floormat in back storage area, and a fishnet pocket on rear door. A compartment above the rearview mirror holds your garage door opener, etc. Better insulated agains road noise. City mpg 28.


Best Features

The smoooooth ride, and how much FUN it is to drive. The great moon roof too.


Worst Features

An optional V6 engine.

2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I Just purchased my RAV4 after researching for little over 6 months in the mini suv class. This is my first SUV, & I love it. So far, I am a happy first-time toyota driver. The ride is smooth, visibility is great, the stereo sound is perfect. I love the moonroof and overall sporty look of the RAV4 - it definitely stands out from the rest. The gas mileage also has been pretty good. My only complaint is the headrest is uncomfortable, and I am unable to get it to adjust just right.


Best Features

Moonroof, and overall design (interior and exterior), I know I am going to love the heated o/s mirrors in the winter.


Worst Features

standard 6 disc in-dash CD Player for L package RAV4, and automatic seat at least for driver side.

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


Review

Very reliable car. Not a lot of space in the backseat, but nice trunk and very comfy in the front. Because it is only 4 cylinders, car is does not go up steep hills very fast. Not good for racing, but fuel economy is excellent (same as a sedan)!


Best Features

Cool Color/Paint (silver). Extremely comfy to drive long distances.


Worst Features

The Trunk door should open up instead of to the side.
