2006 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We bought our loaded v6 AWD limited on the basis of some good reviews from reputable auto mags. Those reviews still ring true today, four years after our purchase. The 269 HP AWD version possesses a very sporty driving experience. It handles mountain roads with ease, zipping through corners like a much lower sedan. In straightaway acceleration, it gives performance cars a run for their money. Hardly worth mentioning the very minor repairs over our ownership run. Certainly far less than similar vehicles. Excellent build quality, including exceptional paint and interior materials. You cannot go wrong with the RAV4.
Strong engine & drivetrain. Solid quality of materials. Great utility. Fantastic handling for a small SUV.
Combined driving 21 mpg. Have attained 27 mpg on long trips. You always wish for more.
