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


No power? Come on, this thing is
plenty peppy! Absolutely no problem on
entrance ramps. (OK, so I don't
exactly live in hill country.)
As for the sound system, mine's got
bass to burn! And the controls are
convenient and logical. The tweeters
give it good presence.
This car is a joy to drive, if a little
bouncy in the ride. I suppose that's
the tradeoff for its superior handling.

Best Features

The looks (Sport Package!), the handling, the cabin ergonomics (except for the seat; see below). I even like the way the engine sounds!

Worst Features

The *(#@#**^! headrest! Why is it tilted so far forward? I've yanked it out and put it back in backwards. Now it's tilted too far the other way, but that's the lesser of two evils. A little more attention to seat ergonomics, please.
