A Tin Can
By adavid on
2006 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this RAV last summer and could not believe the road noise it generated on highways. Didn't matter that I replaced all 4 tires...it was still so frustratingly loud, after a long trip, my ears would ring for hours. Later I find out that the sound/vibration barriers are pretty much non-existent in this car. The v6 engine is very jumpy and gas mileage is a joke. Poor build quality is not something I associate Toyota with but in this case... Make sure you take one out on the highway before you buy...you won't believe your ears!!
Decent looking vehicle.
fix the road noise issue, increase gas mileage, tune down the v6
