2001 Toyota RAV4 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I recently purchased this vehicle with 67K miles on it. I love it. First, for a tall wagon it gets great mileage (I see 24 in reality, mostly city driving). It has cargo room enough to haul most practical loads. It is also very quick considering its a 4 cylinder suv. Brakes, steering, suspension all very responsive. Not great for stop and go traffic because it makes almost no power below 2500 rpm. Took me a while to not spin the tires on startup. Very practical vehicle with few compromises. The perfect cargo loading height means no rear bumper though.

Best Features

Chain driven cam (maintenance free), fuel economy, folding/ removable / reclining rear seats. Ice-cold a/c. Cup holders adjust to drink size.

Worst Features

Can't quite seem to find a good place to rest my arms while driving, feel like I'm sliding out of the passenger seat while riding.
