From CRV to RAV4 and no regrets
By DenverSLP on


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


I traded my 2003 CRV to a 2004 RAV4 for
the simple reason that the RAV4 handles
a tenfold better than the CRV. I found
my CRV to be "trucky", FAR too big for
a "compact SUV" and had terrible road
noise. I would have ranked CRV's
seating comfort a 2 for me...the
worthless armrests dug into my sides;
the legroom in the front was shy of
sufficient for me (at 6'1). RAV4
changed ALL of that...I'm glad I got

Best Features

Front legroom, shifting position, quieter, sleek styling in L model, doesn't feel "trucky"

Worst Features

damper high speed road noise (really noticible only at speeds over 70); make CD changer standard on L models
