2008 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

This is a great SUV. My first small SUV as previously owned Dodge truck and Durangos. Bought new 18 months ago for V6 w/ tow package. I tow a 19' boat (~3,500 towed weight) and all sorts of stuff in my cargo trailer. I have been very impressed with the towing! I don't miss my full size truck (trailer is easier to load) or the gas mileage. I included trailer brakes on the boat trailer and am glad I did as brakes are the only weak point of the RAV4. Roomy, reliable, fun to drive and competent towing makes me very happy.

Favorite Features

Zippy V6, Better than expected towing performance, great audio pkg (have added XM), lots of passenger and cargo room.

Suggested Improvements

Brakes are only adequate. There is a little torque steer. Electric power assist steering has soft 'center' feel.
