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

Review

Bought this car for my wife who is just over 5' tall. She really likes the RAV's styling and visibility from sitting up high. We both like the point and go handling. Throttle is very responsive... I found the dealer's internet sales program very positive. Straight-up sales person claimed price was $300 below invoice, but added approx $300 advertising fee, which put vehicle right at Edmunds listed invoice price (including dest charge). Other dealers wanted to play stupid games and need to get a clue... We tried to find a vehicle with leather AND side curtain airbags, but dealer said Toyota isn't building them (cloth was OK). Side curtain airbags should be standard not an option (hello Honda).

Favorite Features

Exceptional overall car. L model RAV styling is very attractive. Won't buy another car without heated leather seats... they're great. Toyota reliability is hard to beat. Numerous standard and optional features make this car an outstanding package.

Suggested Improvements

Rear spare cover latch is lame. Maybe plastic grocery bags are not as tall in Japan as here... hooks need to be higher (duh). Side curtain airbag option should not be an option, period.
