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


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

It drives more like a sports car than an SUV. I can park where you can't. In spite of the small, nifty handling, I can get some amazingly big items in it.


Best Features

It may seem like a small item, but I commute into the sun both ways. I like those little extenders that pull out of the sun visor.


Worst Features

It could use more rear seat leg room.

Review

I have driven this car for two years now and I can't imagine myself driving any other car! It's one of the safest out there, I can personally attest for its front impact safety, I'm still here and thankfully my car could be completely fixed and its as good as new! I love it, and recommend it to anyone out there! It's awesome for college too! Traveling back and forth on breaks all the time it's easy to fit all I need in this car, it's the perfect size!
