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


Review

Very pleased with the handling, ride andpower. The build quality is excellent. Very good fit and finish. For a small vehicle has great power and acceleration. Engine can be a little noisy at times, and garage door opener receptacle is kind of chintzy. Headlamps could be a little brighter. Other than that, it's a joy to own and drive. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

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


Review

I've only had my Rav for a short time, but I love this vehicle. It's got the Toyota reliability going for it, plus it's just cute as a button! My first vehicle that I was able to choose all by myself!


Best Features

I can work the stereo from the steering wheel. I also like the fact there are 4 cup holders. The back seats recline for those long trips with the teenagers!


Worst Features

Could be a little roomier in the back seat. My youngest is 6'2" and always loses out on the front seat where his older sister (5'4") always sits.

Review

This is a great small ute veh. In general this veh is very fun to drive. Even more so in the winter snow. It has good ground clearance and has a smooth ride with smooth shifts. With the optional 6 airbags , ABS , Traction control , VSC and Side impact beams you feal very safe. It has a great turning radius and for a 4 cylinder has great pickup and go. In very low speeds (aprox 1 to 10 MPH) the transmition could be a little smoother (has trouble finding the gear you need) but once your acclerating normally your fine. In general this veh is built solid and if you treat it right by not beating on it, changing the oil and keeping up the maintaince it will last you well over 200k miles


Best Features

I love the radio controls on the steering wheel. THE AWD is a must for drivers in bad climates. VSC and TC has helped avoid accidents and is just another reason why toyota makes quality products.


Worst Features

I would love to see an HID lighting package! I would also like to see the back glass either roll down or flip up.A gate that flips up would be more pratical. More trunk space too!Back seats that fold flat and flush with the rear floor would be great. Larger gas tank. NO TIRE ON THE BACK GATE!!!!
