Better than I expected
By S.Baker on
2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
We bought this Rav for the wife. She
had some reservations about the 4 cyl.
After driving it for a few months it
has excceded her and my expectations.
Off road it's great as long as you
avoid extreme situations.Ground
clearance is fantastic, very little
wheel spin and very agile.
On the highway it really shines, it
will cruise all day without breaking a
sweat up hills included with close to
30 mpg.Once it gets too 3000 rpms it's
The only real down side is the cup
holders could use some improvement and
it can be a real slug at stop light to
stop light unless you activate the ECT.
Space, offroad ability, turning radius,
simplistic design under the hood.On
Better design with cupholders and
better pep off the line at expense of
fuel mileage is ok.
