I have 2 cars, but this is the one I use to go on long trips, out of state etc. You can't beat it for bringing kids and a dog, ice chest and suit cases, not to mention I can get from Nashville,TN. to New Orleans, LA. on 1 tank of gas!! Of course I take good care of my Rav, I get all the oil changes and 60 point inspections etc. You can not beat this car for comfort and economy.
Easy to drive, great on gas!
I would like it to be more quiet, you can hear the outside noise over the radio.
I love to drive my Rav4. Fortunately, having a manual transmission helps with giving me that extra pick up when I need it and it helps me get excellent gas mileage. My Rav4 averages between 25-30 MPG in mixed driving situations. The only issue I had was with a computer chip that, once corrected, has not given me any more trouble. Although at times I have considered getting a new car, I'm having a hard time giving up a vehicle that has been so good to me. I wouldn't be surprised if it's still running after 200,000 miles. It has 80,000 miles already and still feels like a new car.
I love the way the seats can come out if needed. I also love the way the back opens sideways. And the gas mileage is great!
I have liked my RAV4 since the day I bought it. It is a fun car to drive and is very reliable. I have under 25,000 miles on my RAV4 so I will have it for many years to come. I bought my RAV4 on-line and it was a very easy process. I was able to find the exact RAV4 I wanted, in the exact color I wanted. Buy one you'll like it.
I like the way it drives, the way it looks, and the way it handles on the road.
The only improvement I would make is to have a larger space in the back, but I think the newer models do have larger interiors.
