2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Very fun to drive, especially with the 5-speed manual, but under-powered. Handling is superb, as are the brakes. All-in-all, a nice vehicle. Could use a larger engine. Sterio sounds tinny. Same as Camry. Needs better speakers.

Review

Biggest piece of junk ever produced. Wish I had driven it longer than the test drive. Nothing but problems. Underpowered, overpriced, holier than thou attitude at the dealer. Conned into buying one because of claimed reliability. Traded it in for a Saturn Vue V6 AWD a far better car in every respect.

You won't win a race in this vehicle.

Vehicle

2003 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I traded in a 2000 sports car for the Rav 4 because my previous Toyotas (3 of them) held up very well and kept their value (the sports car was already having engine problems and depreciated almost 50%!). The car/truck handles very well (tight turns), but I found the Rav's 4 cylinder engine a bit sluggish. Not very fun to drive on the highway when you're trying to change lanes or get on. However, city driving is a bit more fun.

This vehicle handles wonder at all speeds. I have had forty (40) vehicles in my life time so far, this 2002, 2WD RAV4 W/QP Package is the BEST.
