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


Review

Vehicle has far exceeded our expectations. I have found this fun to drive and it has excellent cargo space and the side opening makes loading less stressful. I find the driver's seat not deep enough thus doesn't provide adequate leg support.


Best Features

The AWD is a dream in the winter.


Worst Features

Deeper front seats.

Vehicle

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


Review

So far, this has been the best vehicle I've ever owned for several reasons. I got rid of a Jeep Liberty for the RAV4 and now I have confidence about easily getting at least 200,000 miles. The engine build is real quality. Nothing beats RAV4 in its class and the proof comes from owning it. Way to go Toyota!


Best Features

Handling, auality of the engine, audio controls on the steering wheel, interior and exterior styling. I get a lot of people complimenting on how they like the RAV.


Worst Features

The back door swings to the side. It's like that on the newest models too. That's the only thing I don't like.

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


Review

This is the best vehicle I've owned hands down. After owning Jeep, Dodge, and Ford vehicles, I opted for this Rav4 and couldn't be happier. It handles well and after careful examination of the engine components, it is clearly better built than Jeep Liberty. Plus the Rav isn't nearly as thirsty at the pump as the Liberty.


Best Features

Engine 2.4 VVTi, manuverability, fuel economy, handling, reliability, build quality, interior trim


Worst Features

The rear door opens to the side instead of up straight up over you

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


Review

Great handling for an suv not at all like a truck plus on freeway trips gets 30 mpg. Love the hood scoop on the S model even though husband says its non functional so far 3 years 33000 mile no problems whatsoever then again its a Toyota. Also test drove a Honda CR-V which had more room but at the time the Rav had better safety features like standard ABS, Traction & Stability Control that was not even available on the Honda.


Best Features

S Model looks, Sunroof, love the blue color.


Worst Features

Autooff headlights, more rear leg room

Traded in my smaller Corolla(which i loved too!) for something with more storage and head room for child car seats. Also appreciated the AWD! Wanted something with the similar features to my corolla and i got better!


Best Features

Steering wheel controls, cruise control, and AWD

Wind noise. road noise.
