2003 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my RAV for over a year and
1/2, and I still love driving it.
Drives very smoothly, just like a car.
I had a Camery before I got my RAV 4,
and to be honest, I like the RAV much
better. It also makes me feel safe
while driving. You wont regret buying
this one! I promise!!!

2003 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is a reliable car. It has great
gas milage. We drove on the freeway for
61/2 hours and we did not need to fill
it up. We drove 60-65 mls an hour.


Best Features

My facvorite feature is the moon roof. I always wanted one.


Worst Features

They need to make the car wider. The back sits 2 adults or 3 children. I don't know how 2 car seats would fit and another person. They could have put in a bigger engine. It is only a 4 cylnder. The back door should open to the left.

2003 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Vehicle is ideal for short person like
me. I need to be up higher and closer
to controls, which are same as Camry.
Ride not as comfortable as Camry but
fun. Concern about lack of rear bumper.
Brakes not as responsive as Camry.Am
happy with my choice.


Best Features

Adjustable cup holders. Separate plugin for cell phone. Radio, CD and cassette design excellent. Love rear windshield wiper.


Worst Features

Rear door extremely heavy for senior citizen to open. Honda CRV has automated hatchback. Improve driver seat comfort. Improve head reast adjustment.

Review

I researched extensively before going
to test drive Escapes, Liberty's & the
RAV4. Right after driving the RAV4, I
bought it. The heck with the others!
I think the engine is peppy enough &
the gas mileage is comparable to the
Ford Focus I traded. It rides good and
looks stylish, sporty and cute. I now
have a lot more room and the first day
I made sure it could cross the creek to
my favorite campsite! No problem!


Best Features

Sitting up high, moonroof, spacious interior with lots of places to put my stuff, handles great, gas mileage is awesome, rear seats that can be removed for more camping stuff & fishing poles.


Worst Features

Keyless entry should come with power package, speedometer in 10 mph increments rather than 20 (always have to double check my speed), and a way to lock rear door after unloading cargo.

2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my RAVioli because I knew it
would be quality. It corners very well,
and I take them all fast. Never had
any problems with it. I had one rattle
from the roof rack, but that was
because I didn't tighten the screw all
the way. You know, the idiots who
don't rate this well probably don't
take care of it, or maybe the RAV was
put together in the USA, because they
sometimes do a half-*ssed job of
building things. Or they just had bad
luck. But don't take it out on the
car, it is probably your fault in the
first place. :)


Best Features

Color:Vintage gold is so cool.


Worst Features

Like everyone else has been saying, a 6 cylinder would be nice. But please don't do it, because I don't want to have to buy another RAVioli. I like mine.
