2010 Toyota RAV4 SUV Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

First Rav4 after a Camry for six years with nothing but routine maintenance. Hope to get the same from the Rav. Comparing the SUV to the Camry car is like apples and oranges. They have there own values. Enjoying the Rav as the vehicle it should be. Has some road noise and a rougher road ride because of the Sport suspension and larger tires. There is trade off. All wheel drive, firmer suspension, safer vehicle for us who travel in winter climates and the build quality where it counts is there. You want a Caddy ride buy one. You want quality and a fun road safety vehicle SUV buy a RAV4.


Best Features

A cool all round SUV


Worst Features

Toyota might want to stop selling their vehicles if you get this you can have this color, options etc. Like satellite tv programming.

2010 Toyota RAV4 SUV Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Being a car freak, it's not hard to choose the 3.5 L RAV4 Sport over its competition. Somehow, I can't feel there are 268 HP under the hood, maybe because of the weight of the vehicle. On the other hand, it really handles the curves well (in fact, handles better than my Lexus IS350), thanks to the sports-tuned suspension.


Best Features

the look of the car (18" wheel, and w/o the goofy spare tire), and its ability to handle the curves


Worst Features

too many nice features cannot be ordered with the Sport package (e.g., JBL audio system, NAV, etc.), as a result, the interior is all plastic - reminds me of my 87 Corolla FX16, but even that car had a leather-wrapped steering wheel!

Review

Hi, I am very disappointed with the bumpy ride for my sports model with the flat- free tires. I am not sure if it is the tires or the suspension. Very annoying! Very annoying! Feels like I am sitting on some vibrator when going over normal road bumps. It needs a perfectly smooth road to provide a smooth experience - Just not possible.


Best Features

Space, Ergo, Smooth Steering


Worst Features

Must definitely fix the bumpy ride issue for Sports Sports package to have leather interior options and rear view camera/Hands free phone as basic

Review

I really like the rav4 with the exception of the road noise. It is extremely loud. I would not recommend this vehicle for that reason. I will be getting rid of mine as soon as I can.


Best Features

Handles and drives good.Lots of cargo space. Ample leg room in the back seat.


Worst Features

Reduce, reduce road noise.

Review

The car is leased. Traded in a 2002 Buick Rendezvous with 100,000 miles on it. Only have 2,500 on the Rav4 sofar. It is a fun car to drive. The V6 is powerful and the steering very responsive. I'm a little larger in size than some and the on drivers' door the ridge that extends out gives me some trouble. Wouldn't mind it being flatter for more leg room. If I put the seat all the way down it works better for me. MPG has averaged out at 23.4 all around on the gauge. Best MPG so far 27 MPG going from Illinois to Mackinac, MI; averaging 65 -70 MPH. I would say the A/C definitely holds the MPG down about 2 MPG with constant use during the recent 90+ weather here. JBL speakers are great.


Best Features

Handling, storage, comfortable front seats, reasonable MPG, V6 get up and go.


Worst Features

Cup holders could be better, more accessible. Power riders seat. Quieter tires (intermittent road noise). Power outlets could be more accessible.
