Although I've only been driving it for a week now, I love it! It's a beautiful car with a great drive. Toyotas are reliable cars. The RAV4 has a smooth drive and the comfort is a plus. The exterior is also beautiful. It's a great small suv for someone who's tiny like me! It's easy to drive and very spacious. I'd recommend it to anyone!
Love the vehicle for looks and the pick up. Wish it had a place to store my sunglasses instead of a garage door opener above the driver's seat. The engine jumps when you hit the gas. Good view of the road when driving.
Radio controls on the wheel are a plus. Heated mirrors with the L package good on a frosty day. The ride is smooth and quiet.
Bigger storage bins up front. can't put my CDs on the flip up compartment. The driver's outboard mirror doesn't move out far enough for me to get a full view behind me.
A great car/truck for New York City driving. Easy to parallel park and handles those pot holes with ease. After getting rid of my 10 year old car, it is good to have the feel of a tight suspension again. Although my wife uses the car to go back and forth to work, I look forward to the weekends when I do the driving and we plan more "Road Trips" for this fall and winter.
The remote on the steering wheel makes changing modes, stations and tracks on the CD's a snap. Also love the gas economy.
Would like the keyless remote to open all the doors, not just the drivers.
After months of due diligence I decided to go for RAV4. I am pleased with the decision I made and my friends and collegues are impressed too. Its zippy, good on mileage (22mpg city/30mpg highway), compact and good pick (better than my previous v6 dodge intrepid). Its great value for the price. Great looks and great performance backed by Toyota's reputation, I think its the best compact SUV in the market. Safety features, especially side curtain air bags, helped me get good insurance rates and peace of mind, of course.
Compact design, fuel efficieny, sharp manuevers and sharp looks and safety features.
It gets noisy after 60-70 mph on highways. It will be great to have smoother ride while cruising.
I've wanted an SUV for a few years, but I didn't know if I could handle an SUV, being only a little over five feet tall and driving only small cars. The Toyota Rav4 is the one I settled on once it was time for the big purchase. Driving a Rav4 is like driving on a cloud. It handles smoothly, maneuvers effortlessly and is a joy to drive. I would recommend the RAV4 to anyone contemplating that first time SUV purchase.
I love that even though it's considered a compact SUV, the rear seats are removable as in the bigger SUV's and vans for more cargo room. Also, I love watching the rear wiper do it's thing in rainy weather.
Personally, I don't feel I need to make any improvements. For me, my RAV4 is the greatest thing as I have it right now.
