1997 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD


Glad I have the manual transmission
since it's underpowered. Gas
consumption isn't SUVish, but not
as good as a 4cyl sedan. Can haul quite
a bit of stuff, but it slides around
alot (no stability in cargo area). I
like that you sit higher than regular
cars, but it doesn't drive like large
SUV. Parks like a dream in the city.
Best on city streets, country roads. Ok
on the highway but a bit noisy. Ride
isn't the best -- more trucklike than
carlike. Fun to drive! Very handy for
hauling smaller items, except golf clubs
don't lay flat across trunk - one rear
seat has to be folded up.

Best Features

Manual Transmission, cruise control very convenient and steady, fold up seats for cargo space. Antilock brakes.

Worst Features

Headlamps-leave dark spot,had them realigned twice/Gearing-almost have to be stopped for 1st yet 2nd lags at low speed/Autounlock-on trunk to eleviate unlocking two doors when placing items in trunk then getting in drivers seat
