Love My RAV4 Sooo Much
By Excellent Crossover on


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


Been owning for about a month now and put about 800 miles on it. All I can say is nothing but good impression of everything that comes with it. Plenty of power to fool around on the road, handling is just like a car, gas consumption is impressive for a 3500 lbs crossover SUV(got average of 21 miles/gal). Design of the interior is as good as sedan but too much plastic materials used. Toyota did a good job to fool your eyes (you'll think it's a leatherette from a distance). This is the reason why I took 1 point off the interior design evaluation points. I love how the exterior look, from the headlights(resembling BMW headlights) to the curve line on the sides, side mirrors, but weird rear-end.

Favorite Features

Sport suspension, auto-off headlights, roof rack, 18" wheels, electric power steering, 3.5L 269hp V6, 4WD, 5spd automatic, 3500 lbs towing capacity, supportive headrests, 1-touch power windows and roof, hidden compartments, dash design, good brakes, gas consumption, decent assist & stability control.

Suggested Improvements

Rear-end could look better without the spare tire hanging. Rear liftgate door could be better. Interior contains too much plastics. On demand 4wd should operate up to 40 or 50mph. JBL subwoofer is too crappy. Wind and road noise should be reduced. V6 engine a bit noisy. Should able to turn DRL off.
