Still Crazy (about it) after 6 yrs.
By Jeffty on


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


Totally dependable, solid and always fun and economical to drive. 4-cyl. w/5-speed manual likes to rev high and zoom along. Zippier than you'd imagine, very stable manuvering and braking. I get an average of 27 mpg combined and up to 31 mpg on a long, slow trip. Original Toyo tires were unspectacular but a set of Michelins made a real improvement especially in the wet. The quartet of engine sensors were a bit troublesome, three already replaced before 70k miles. Now at 100k miles it still feels solid and fun to drive. I plan on keeping this one for the duration and I feel pretty optimistic about a good,long life for this one. I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Best Features

A really willing engine and stable footprint keeps it fun to drive.

Worst Features

Maybe stronger headlights?
