1996 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD


I purchased my 1996 RAV-4 in May 2000
when it had only 28,000 miles on it,
one previous owner and clean as a
whistle! It has proven to be a very
reliable and appropriate vehicle for
me. It's the first car I've ever
owned that I feel truly fits my
personality. Aside from the fact that
it has only a 4-cyl engine which makes
acceleration onto highways a bit of a
challenge, I just love this car! I
want to trade my 1996 for a newer
model, but I don't really like the
body style of the newer RAVs. I wish
Toyota had left well enough alone.

Best Features

The car is fun to drive and I get great gas mileage. As far as reliability goes.. (well it is a Toyota, need I say more?) Because my RAV came equipped with a hitch, I can hook up my 4X6 trailer and off to Home Depot I go!

Worst Features

It is what it is, but more power would be great... maybe a V6 option on future models?
