2005 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
The Rav 4 is an exceptional value for its class. The handling is very tight. Cornering is comfortable. The stablility and traction control system enables a very smooth ride. The cargo space in ample. You have about 6ft of cargo space when you remove the back 2 seats. I would recommend getting a roof rack to increase your cargo options. The interior is quite functional. You don't need to reach too far to access the dashboard controls. Seats are decent albeit a bit stiff. Safety features abound. Good for family transportation. I am very happy with this purchase. Great gas mileage and lots of features make for a fun, affordable ride.
Radio controls on steering wheel, grocery bag hooks in the rear cargo area, stability and traction control
Sound vibration when rear windows are down a few inches. Brakes are a bit touchy.
