Best car I've owned (knock on wood!)
By Jim Nipe on


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


Well...I've only had this car for 2000
miles, but it's an extremely fun car to
drive. 'Premium' sound system was
poor. I replaced it with four Infinity
speakers and an Excelon Kenwood deck
because I couldn't get the top of the
line system Toyota offered. After
about 1000 miles, the engine 'loosened'
up and now runs super smooth.
Averaging about 28 mph.

Best Features

Handles like a compact car. Very easy to drive. Not at all like driving a 'typical' SUV. A joy to drive. Seems VERY solid and just plain well-made.

Worst Features

Improve power. Interior could probably have a less plastic-y look. Improve sound system. Maybe a little more back seat space? Sometimes a bit of a fight to drive on interstate in high winds or truck backdrafts.
