2005 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


After having a 2001 Rav4 with no problems, we decided on a 2005. It handles great, better acceleration and terrific mileage. It drives beautiful in the snow, and the styling is nice. This vehicle is at home at the grocery store, home improvement centers and weddings. It is great for parking and quick trips to the store, and very agile on the highway for the long trips. It is unfortunate the styling changed. The very reasons that made the RAV4 popular have changed. My wife dosen't like the new models, and either do I. It is no longer the cute ute. It isn't the compact ute it once was, and the whole reason for buying a RAV.

Best Features

Gas mileage, Peppy engine, handling in bad weather, dependability.

Worst Features

The only improvement I would have made rather than change the whole vehicle, would have been a fold down rear door. Toyota caved in. I say buy another vehicle if you weren't happy with the way it was. I will not buy another RAV4 after this one.
