2001 Toyota RAV4 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


We've had our car since July 2001. Aside from the lousy gas mileage around the city 17 and 20-21 hwy, it's been a really fun ride. The AWD grips really well and give the car a nice ride. The acceleration is a bit sluggish at times, but it has a really nice ride once it's going. The rotors are cheap, constantly need shaving, so they'll be replaced. I had the infamous 420 & 440 (O2 codes), so I'm hoping that the reprogramming doesn't kill off my O2 sensors and catalytic converter.

Best Features

Has wonderful features - removable rear seats or I could just fold them down. Great handling and nice ride. It's very stylish and generally it's been a very good car. It has a timing chain and long life spark plugs - less maintenance. No maintenance battery lasted a long time for us.

Worst Features

Better brakes/rotors, better mpg, fix the O2/catalytic converter problem. They added the V6, but changed the style so it doesn't look as fun to have anymore. I like the style the '01-'05?? better.
