1998 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV


Finally replacing Old Faithful after over 10 very reliable years. Seats are losing their bounce and it's showing it's age a bit, but still runs like a charm. The 2.0 4cyl is a bit wimpy for hwy driving, but MPG is great. I truly wish the US would build affordable quality products. The materials/fit & finish are so chintzy in comparison, or incredibly overpriced. Looks like another import vehicle again for me.

Best Features

Can zip into parking spots going the opposite direction. Have never worried that it would break down. Have hauled bikes, plywood, paving stone, you name it with this little beast.

Worst Features

Center armrest! More intimidating horn. More HP. Bag hooks in cargo area. More utility plug-ins.
