2008 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Divorced father, 2 kids (13 & 10), needed a replacement vehicle for a 97 Mountaineer. Looked at Acadia, Enclave, TaurusX, Mazda CX9, CRV & Odyssey. Purchased V6 Sport 4WD 11/07. Vehicle has 24,500 miles on it now. Very pleased with the gas mileage (averages a consistent 27 mpg when driven between 60-65 mph). Very quiet riding vehicle, nothing rattles or squeaks, very tight. JBL sound system is wonderful. Kids love positioning options of backseats I should have purchased more comfortable / flexible leather/ powerseats. On long rides its worth the extra money. My 1st Toyota, won't be my last. Very pleased.
JBL sound system, V6, multiposition rear seatbacks, overall fit and finish, quiet ride, strong A/C and heating system
coin box section in upper portion of center console, loud fluttering sound when 2 front windows are opened more than 1/2 way and rear windows are not open, front console coffee cup holder too close to aux power outlet,
