2004 Toyota RAV4 SUV Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

So far, this has been the best vehicle I've ever owned for several reasons. I got rid of a Jeep Liberty for the RAV4 and now I have confidence about easily getting at least 200,000 miles. The engine build is real quality. Nothing beats RAV4 in its class and the proof comes from owning it. Way to go Toyota!


Best Features

Handling, auality of the engine, audio controls on the steering wheel, interior and exterior styling. I get a lot of people complimenting on how they like the RAV.


Worst Features

The back door swings to the side. It's like that on the newest models too. That's the only thing I don't like.

Review

This is the best vehicle I've owned hands down. After owning Jeep, Dodge, and Ford vehicles, I opted for this Rav4 and couldn't be happier. It handles well and after careful examination of the engine components, it is clearly better built than Jeep Liberty. Plus the Rav isn't nearly as thirsty at the pump as the Liberty.


Best Features

Engine 2.4 VVTi, manuverability, fuel economy, handling, reliability, build quality, interior trim


Worst Features

The rear door opens to the side instead of up straight up over you

2004 Toyota RAV4 SUV Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great handling for an suv not at all like a truck plus on freeway trips gets 30 mpg. Love the hood scoop on the S model even though husband says its non functional so far 3 years 33000 mile no problems whatsoever then again its a Toyota. Also test drove a Honda CR-V which had more room but at the time the Rav had better safety features like standard ABS, Traction & Stability Control that was not even available on the Honda.


Best Features

S Model looks, Sunroof, love the blue color.


Worst Features

Autooff headlights, more rear leg room

Review

Reliable front wheel drive in all weather but snow and rainy wind storms in particular. Moved from east to west coast -- handles great, climbs mountain passes like a champ. Trac system a plus driving in ice and snow. Can cruise along at 80 mph with the rest of the traffic. Fine for city driving parallel parks with ease. Nice stylish car.


Best Features

Media adjustments in steering wheel, roomy baggage area even for furniture pieces; gas mileage good, that extra boost on the 4cyl is great when needed.


Worst Features

Too much noise on poorly paved Interstate hwy, can't hear radio. Visibility not good with headrests (I'm short). Better lumbar support.
