Best car I've owned (knock on wood!)
By Jim Nipe on
2004 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Well...I've only had this car for 2000
miles, but it's an extremely fun car to
drive. 'Premium' sound system was
poor. I replaced it with four Infinity
speakers and an Excelon Kenwood deck
because I couldn't get the top of the
line system Toyota offered. After
about 1000 miles, the engine 'loosened'
up and now runs super smooth.
Averaging about 28 mph.
Handles like a compact car. Very easy
to drive. Not at all like driving
a 'typical' SUV. A joy to drive. Seems
VERY solid and just plain well-made.
Improve power. Interior could probably
have a less plastic-y look. Improve
sound system. Maybe a little more back
seat space? Sometimes a bit of a fight
to drive on interstate in high winds or
