1999 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD


85k miles and no mechanical problems so
far. Had one instance where engine
would not turn over. Towed it to the
dealer (100k warranty) and it started
up for them. Never a problem since.
Can't believe the power of this 2 litre
engine, even with the auto
transmission!! Traction is excellent, 8
inches of snow was no problem during a
bad storm. My wife wants a van now that
we are a foursome. She thinks I'm going
to sell my full size truck...HA...the
sad truth is, I hate to part with the
RAV4. I just might give up the GMC,
especially with today's gas prices.

Best Features

Sure footed traction, standard features and the way the front seat turns into an ez-chair when slid against the back seat.

Worst Features

Get the fuel economy up. 25 mpg is ok for a large vehicle but this is not.
