What a let down!
By Fooled by the Hype on


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


I've had the vehicle for less than a year and I've had the brakes replaced (this was one of their technical service bullitens--a recall they didn't want me to know about until after the brakes failed and left me smashed at the bottom of a cliff somewhere), new pads put on, the stereo has had to be replaced--all this on top of it's horribly slow pick up (transmission won't shift until it warms up), and other odd noises that make me question the reliability almost daily!
I've had enough--I'm trading in this piece of @#!* for a Hyundai!
Toyota really blew it for me--I'm telling everyone I know and I'll probably never buy one again!!

Best Features

The CD player still works.

Worst Features

Add more power! Move controls for windshield wipers and cruise control. Make the hard shell spare tire cover standard!
