Love our RAV4!!

1999 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV


Bought the RAV4 used in 2004 for my wife.
At the time it had 99K miles.
Recognizing it was time for service, I immediately invested $400 to replace the timing belt, water pump, and replace fluids.
100K miles later (199K), this little truck is still going strong and continues to look brand new inside and out.
Everything works except minor items (seat belt light blinks constantly on dash ).
The maintenance is due again and I'm glad to invest another $400 to keep her going.
Planning to pass along to our son in the next few years.
We have had NO problems with this truck.
Only replaced the battery, spark plugs, regular fluid changes, brakes, and tires.
Would definitely recommend!

Best Features

The sunroof and ease of getting in and out of the vehicle. Snow is NO problem!

Worst Features

Needs more pep. Gas mileage is not great but decent (small 13 gallon tank). Flimsy arm console. Bolts vibrate loose and require frequent re-tightening. Fix weird electrical issues (seat belt light blinks even when fastened).
