Leg cramps from uncomfortable seats
By Steve on


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


I really can't wait to get rid of this car. It's nothing like my old 4runner. Driver's seating position is so uncomfortable I have constant leg cramps. I tried spacers under seat legs, extra spring on gas pedal, lumbar pillow, seat cushion, none worked. I have to drive for now but this is the last toyota for me. That is saying a lot from a guy that had 4 so far but this one is not my favorite. Really don't like silly side-swinging rear door. Dash rattles. It struggles to get the rated MPGs. Transfer case whines a bit a certain speeds. I am just plain unsatisfied.

Best Features

Good size if you like suv but need MPG. 3.5L engine is great.

Worst Features

Front seat replacement. Too hard, wrong angle, just plain painful to drive long distances. Standard lift rear door instead of left opening. more MPG. Transmission is not always smooth.
