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


I have had almost no problems with my 3 year old RAV 4 after 3 years and more than 60.000 miles. Had a slight rattle on the glove compartment when almost new, easily fixed by a great Toyota dealer service. Mechanically, no problems whatsoever. Also no problems with body or interior components. Only complaint is interior sound insulation which is not "Wrangler- terrible" but could certainly be improved. Some improvement after getting new Michelin highway tires. The engine has good power delivery and reserve for typical use. Highway behavior is excellent and handles more like a sedan. However do not expect the acceleration and torque that comes with much bigger but less fuel effic SUVs

Best Features

Exterior and interior design, qulity of materials and details for this price range. Handling manners: SUV visibility, cargo space and AWD capabilities (although not for off-road use) with automobile-handling qualities

Worst Features

Better cabin road and engine sound insulation.
