Never thought I'd love an SUV!

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


I bought this car to replace my '97 Honda Civic. I have owned Toyotas in the past and I have always loved them. However, I was not prepared to fall in love with this car before I had even driven off the dealer's lot for the test drive! Some have mentioned it being underpowered, but I don't find the manual shift to be underpowered at all. It is a little noisy in the cabin, but this is an SUV, not a Lexus sedan.

Best Features

I love the manual shift transmission and the adjustable cup holders. Very comfortable seats.

Worst Features

I wish there was a place to put my purse when I am driving and there is someone in the front seat (I know, this is petty and minor). Other than that I love this car!
