Review

Great handling and very stable on the
road. Would have liked a rear bumper,
but that can be purchased aftermarket
fairly cheap.


Best Features

Good pick-up and the MPG cannot be beat.

Review

I Just purchased my RAV4 after
researching for little over 6 months
in the mini suv class. This is my
first SUV, & I love it. So far, I am a
happy first-time toyota driver. The
ride is smooth, visibility is great,
the stereo sound is perfect. I love
the moonroof and overall sporty look
of the RAV4 - it definitely stands out
from the rest. The gas mileage also
has been pretty good. My only
complaint is the headrest is
uncomfortable, and I am unable to get
it to adjust just right.


Best Features

Moonroof, and overall design (interior and exterior), I know I am going to love the heated o/s mirrors in the winter.


Worst Features

standard 6 disc in-dash CD Player for L package RAV4, and automatic seat at least for driver side.

Review

We own a 1998 Rav4, decided to get a
2003. It is Spectra Mica Blue, with a
moon roof, luggage rack, 2 WD auto
trans, and Quick Pkg. Improvements
since 1998 are impressive. The ride is
smoother, seats are very comfortable,
seating in the back is adjustable for
more legroom, there are lots more nooks
and crannies for storage, cup holders
(4) that are adjustable, a neat little
eyeglass holder hidden under steering
wheel, nice small storage area under
the floormat in back storage area, and
a fishnet pocket on rear door. A
compartment above the rearview mirror
holds your garage door opener, etc.
Better insulated agains road noise.
City mpg 28.


Best Features

The smoooooth ride, and how much FUN it is to drive. The great moon roof too.


Worst Features

An optional V6 engine.
