2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my RAV4 last January and I'm
surprised at how much I enjoy it! I
drive about 130 miles round trip to
work, both city/highway miles, and I'm
averaging 26 mpgs. I can haul
people/things with this vehicle.
I haven't noticed the lack of power
that most people are griping about. My
husband and I hauled butt, fully
loaded, at 70+, in the Rockies with no
problem. Hmmm, maybe some people just
like to complain...or maybe I don't
drive like a maniac! I have the all-
wheel drive version, and it handles
well in crappy, snowy driving

Best Features

The rear door opens like a car door - LOVE IT! Plenty of head/leg room. The back seats not only fold down, they swivel or can be removed completely. Great for carrying larger loads.

Worst Features

Bigger gas tanks - or maybe two tanks. Like I said, I drive over 130 miles per day and even at 26 mpgs, it seems like I'm putting in gas every day.
