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

Review

The new 2004 version is a nice upgrade over 2003 and includes standard ABS and steering wheel controls. Well designed interior for practicality and convenience. The new engine is quicker and quieter which is a long overdue improvement. The manual trans. is smooth and easy to operate...unlike the poorly engineered CRV clutch. Major flaw- an oversized, ridiculously heavy rear door with a window that won't open. Puzzling why Toyota failed to re- design such an obvious flaw?! Also, the RAV4 could be a little longer for more cargo room. Overall though, this is a very well constructed vehicle and rates the best out of all small SUV's I test drove.

Best Features

Removable rear seats, 16 inch tires, smooth ride and steering, relatively good gas milage, multiple setting variable intermittant wipers. Beautiful dash instrumentation.

Worst Features

Rear door needs to be redesigned with a window that either flips up or rolls down, the blinking seat belt light is annoying, the "L" package needs to include tinted glass (is there anyone who doesn't prefer tinted glass these days?). Stereo should be XM ready.
