Review of the 2004 Toyota RAV4

  • With ample power under the hood and a generous standard features list, the RAV4 is now a worthy adversary for mini-utes like the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape.

Comfort, reliable, safe and low

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I was researching for more than 2 months for buying a nice preowned car. My search ended with finding this gem at a good price. First priority was safety of my family and myself. Full marks to this car for the curtain airbags, anti-skid and all wheel drive. In deep-snow,icy conditions this car feel very safe and secure to drive. Highly configurable interior. the second row of seats comes off giving you a lot of hauling area. Was able to get furniture for an entire bedroom from ikea due to this and saved a lot of $$. Overall fun to drive on weekends with the family. Seats are well supported and interior is luxurious




One cute ute!

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Love the style! Of all the cars I've owned (7) this one is the most FUN to drive. Remote no longer opens the driver's door - a pain. The ride is surely not as smooth as my Camry, but I love this Cute Ute! I'm looking to buy one for my mom because it's a great size, has great visibility, and it's FUN.




Lousy gas mileage/no pick up

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

This is the worst car I ever owned. I am lucky to get 17mpg around town and 22mpg on hwy. For a small car, light car it has no guts. It is reliable and has a nice look; however, it really stinks. I just traded mine in for a Saturn SUV.

What's New for 2004

Toyota has given the RAV4 a midcycle freshening for 2004. Notable improvements include a larger 161-horsepower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine, a mild restyling that gives it a more aggressive appearance, and inside, a new steering wheel and instrument panel. Standard equipment has increased significantly, with stability and traction control, antilock brakes, air conditioning and a six-speaker stereo heading up the list. Multistage front airbags are also new this year, and side airbags for front occupants and full-length head curtain airbags are now optional.
