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


Bought used with 19,000 miles, in top condition. Paid about $500 over average market but was great buy. Only repair (covered by warranty) in 3 years was to reset computer immediately after purchase due to no acceleration from stop. Drove 6,000 miles on summer vacation in '05, performed perfectly with average 29 mpg thru rocky mountains, pacific NW and level terrain, no overheating. Holds 75 mph easily on hwy, uses reg. fuel, holds 4 adults long distance in reasonable comfort, 3 adults in great comfort. Easy on tires, great stability, seats removable with no trouble. Only complaint is halogen headlights are too bright and unadjustable. Will still be a great car at 200,000 miles.

Best Features

The BEST 4 cyl production engine on the planet. There is nothing to NOT like about this car. Easy to drive, park, maintain. Lots of storage slots in doors, console, backs of seats, in rear compartment. Folding or removable seats, solid feeling and great stability at hwy speed. The perfect car.

Worst Features

Change headlights to adjustable.
