2004 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I wasn't sure when I bought my 2004
RAV4L if is it was the truck for me,
but now I'm convinced! My RAV has a
nimble feel, excellent braking and
handling, unexpected fuel economy at
30mpg and is fun to drive. With a 5-
speed, 4WD & traction control it
handles fantastic during the NJ
winters. It's has a smooth ride, but
also a slight SUV/truck feel, which is
why I bought it. (I owned a 1993
Toyota P/U 4x4 and loved it!)It took 8
weeks (the sunroof was put in at port
in the U.S,) to get after I placed my
order, but well worth the wait !


Best Features

4WD, traction control, comfortable and sporty to drive, Everglade Metallic paint color appears to make the truck look 3 different colors (but not all at the same time) blue, green and silver; it's amazing.


Worst Features

power front seats are the only thing it's missing!

2004 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Our RAV4 is everthing we expected and
more. As long-time loyal Toyota
customers (We still have our 1991
Corolla w/170,000 mi.) the RAV4 has met
our every expectation with only one
minor exception - wind noise. This
vehicle is a pleasure to drive and ride
in, even on long trips. Acceleration is
very good with the more powerful 2004
engine. And design -- We have had a few
second glances from young and adult
alike. We plan to keep ours a long,
long time.


Best Features

I like the idea of having audio controls on the stearing wheel. The "auto up" feature on the driver's side window is a nice, convenient touch.


Worst Features

The RAV4 could use a tinted windshield.

2004 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Had a '96 Grand Cherokee but got sick
of all the problems. I wanted to get a
new car with: price tag at or below
$20K, 4WD, extremely reliable, able to
fit large cargo when needed, mostly a
commuter car for work....only found 2
that met criteria...RAV4 & CRV. Didn't
test drive CRV because to me it just
looks tin-canny, and the wheels look
too small to be stable. Advice to you
would be to drive both and see. If
you're looking for a family car, check
out the Highlander ($5K more than
RAV4). I bought a RAV4 and now have
1000 miles on it.


Best Features

Maneuverability and quietness. RAV4 turns corners like my Volvo S60


Worst Features

Higher center console (to rest arm on), more driver seat adjustment controls, more steering wheel adjustments...haven't yet found perfect seat position to be 100% comfortable

Review

I just bought this car this weekend and
so far I truly love it! It rides like a
dream and perfect to use for work and
pleasure. Toyotas are one of the best
cars you can buy. The price was right
too!!


Best Features

The moonroof, the radio controls on the steering wheel
