2005 Toyota RAV4 Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


This is the best car I've ever owned, and I'm a 50-year-old woman, so I've been around the car block. It's compact enough that it gives decent gas mileage and being an SUV, it puts me on the same level as the rest of the world. (In fact, I'm a bit miffed they're planning to make the 2007 models bigger -- if you want bigger, move on up to a Highlander or a Sequoia. Leave the Rav 4 alone!)

Best Features

I love the screws on the dashboard.

Worst Features

I do have a quibble: Putting the battery under a plastic shield that you have to open with quarters was an extremely dumb design decision, esp. since I think you've geared this vehicle toward woman. Imagine having to jump your car in the middle of the night and you can't get into that blasted shield!
