So far, so good
By John C on

Vehicle

2008 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

It's our first Toyota (past is mostly Hondas & Fords), and has been a good purchase so far. It replaced our Ford Explorer, and the ride and handling are great. 3rd row seat is good, but tight for the kids on short rides. Good ride / handling, and the 4 cyl engine has good acceleration (better than the CRV and V6 Escape we tested). Easy to get in and out for my wife (only 5' tall), and has good seating position. She drives it mostly around town, so we are only averaging 21 mpg, but hope to get better results on highway trips. Interior is well constructed, controls are easy to use with good layout. Looking forward to mileage on longer trips, and to see how good AWD drive is in the snow

Favorite Features

Nice ride, easy/tight handling (easy to parallel park). 3rd row seat. Good gas mileage and responsive acceleration for a 4 cylinder. Toyota quality and safety record is impressive so far.

Suggested Improvements

Obviously if they could put a little more torque into 4 cyl engine, or improve gas mileage, then the good would become great. Wait to see if mileage and AWD perform as desired.
