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


I've had my Rav for a little over a
year. While it's very easy to drive,
it lacks power and handling. It's size
is adequate, and it's easy to park in
smaller spaces thanks to the short
front end. I'm not too crazy about the
exterior design. While it's an
improvement over the original body
style, it's a little too "cutesie" for
me. It's almost like a station wagon
on steroids. Anyway, overall, it's
roomy enough to be comfortable on long
trips, and for the price, it's a
dependable little car.

Best Features

Impressive handling in the snow thanks to the AWD.

Worst Features

V6 option. The 4 banger just doesn't cut it. I'd rather have something that I know can pull out into traffic.
