Happy RAV4 Owner After Doing My Homework
By Anita Casey on


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


After countless weeks poring over the many conflicting reviews at the Consumer Reports, Power, Autobytel, cars.com, Edmunds, et. al. sites, I finally settled on the RAV. There was no consensus on the quality of any car I looked at--from Acura TSX/TL to Honda Accord to Lexus IS to Infiniti G35 to Nissan Murano. I obviously explored a number of possibilites but found in the end that I didn't want to spend too much money on a car, since I couldn't find one that was head and shoulders above the rest. In all of the consumer forums, car owners aired their problems with their vehicles--even the hallowed Honda Accord. Reasons I settled on the RAV4 are listed below.

Best Features

great looks (SUV with an attitude), just enough horsepower for me, excellent ratings by Power and Consumer Reports, AWD, inability to seat a soccer team, ample cargo space, moonroof

Worst Features

satellite radio (although I had a Delphi installed with a custom bracket), rattle-free ride (although the dealer installed a kit to fix cowl rattle)
