2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Toyota got it pretty much right with this little SUV. It has one of the best power trains ever put into a vehicle. We don't baby it, and at 76 mph we get an honest 26 mpg. Stunning. Good use of interior space with spare outside the car, but the cover for said spare does not like car washes: it is easily pried loose by spinning car washers, then falls off and gets scratched or damaged. Still hate Toyota's unwillingness to sell me cars the way I want them optioned. We had ZERO choice of options as sport models destined for our 5-state region all came equipped the same way. Toyota made a BIG mistake with the front seat geometry: They need more rear travel and the rear needs to be lower.

Best Features

Strong engine, good use of interior space.

Worst Features

Front seat travel range poor: they sacrifice front passenger comfort for potential rear seat room. I lowered the rear seat mounts 1" and they are now much better. Transmission far too abrupt at slow speeds. The Lexus RX series has the same drive train and it is perfect. More option choices.
