Buy Cheap, Buy Often
By JHol on
2009 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
The old saying goes, "Buy cheap, buy often." I purchased this car less than a month ago with Toyota in mind of having a reputation for reliability that is second to none in the industry. That was the main reason for looking at Toyota, even with the whole recall mess. I verified my model 2009 with vin starting with "J" was not part of the recent recall. We took the car on a road trip and got amazing gas mileage. I have the 4-cyl model and it was perfect. Plenty of room and even more incredible is the seats in back are adjustable and will slide back to maximize leg room. Great idea Toyota! Love the car!
The back seats slide back to maximize leg room. Lots of storage compartments. Gas mileage is great for a vehicle this size! Not a dog either, good acceleration. Little mood lighting at night in center console area.
I agree with most, the carpet is rather poor on this vehicle and hard to clean. You really need a strong vac to clean it.
