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


Review

Don't buy unless you want to feel every bump on the road - The sports model with Flat-Free tire has a very noticeable bumpy ride. At this it is very annoying, with the vehicle wobbling, driver shaking like he has convulsions. Works well on a smooth and even road, which is not realistic to expect. This ride quality does even come close to 10-year old Camry and 4-year old Sienna.


Favorite Features

Does not matter about any features, the bad and bumpy rides over-shadows any good features.


Suggested Improvements

Sports model ride suspension with Flat- Free tires needs to be fixed. In fact, I would say Toyota should discontinue making this model. Bad design and disgrace to Toyota's quality and reputation.

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


Review

This my second RAV4. Since my 2007 model, Toyota has improved the engine - more power, less gas, a LOT smoother. It's comfy for 4 or 5 adults with plenty of legroom; extremely roomy and useful cargo carrier with the seats down. With a light foot, it will top 30mpg on the road; about 25mpg average in mixed driving. Dull interior; this is a Base model but even the pricey Limited isn't much better. The ride is still a little jiggly, but it corners much better than you'd expect. Excellent brakes and steering, too. Solid build quality. I got a great lease deal on it; much cheaper than the used SUVs I was looking at.


Favorite Features

Efficient use of space; fuel efficiency; fun to drive. Usable off-road capability. Well designed and built.


Suggested Improvements

Better interior materials; column or dash shift to allow more console storage; a proper lift-up tailgate; power driver's seat in the Base model; Bluetooth connectivity; a 5 or 6-speed transmission to save even more gas; a smoother ride.

Review

I bought the Base Rav4 in August, 2010. Everything is great, except it vibrates a lot and is very noticeable, especially at speeds greater than 50. The Dealership tried to help and rebalanced the wheels for me. It did not help. At the dealership, the service manager and I test drove another new Rav4 and it did the same thing. Called Customer Care at Toyota, and their expert said that they are just made that way and to get used to it. So, I am looking to trade it in soon. And our 2005 Camry vibrated if the wheels were not perfectly balance. This will be my last Toyota. They have gotten way too big and quality issues are popping up and they and really don't care.

Review

I almost did not buy a Rav4 due to concerns of Quality going down at Toyota. We had a 2005 Camry that vibrated of the highway if the wheels were not perfectly balanced. Well, I took a chance and got burned big time by Toyota. My 2010 Rav4 vibrates at speeds greater than 50. Other 2010 Rav4s tested at the dealership (after I bought it to compare) also vibrate and Toyota officially told me that they were just built that way. I have come across a couple of nearly identical complaints on the internet. Now I am looking to trade for a SUV that does not vibrate. Toyota could care less, but I would never buy another Toyota.

Home Link, sat. radio, and bluetooth
