Fun, Safe Little SUV
By Bob Alkov on


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


The 2005 Toyota automatic 4 dr AWD RAV- 4 is a fun, safe little SUV. It replaced a 1996 Toyota RAV-4 with manual that we drove to 90000 miles. We need it in the winter as we live on the side of a mountain at the 7000 ft level that gets lots of snow in winter. It has a lot of safety features such as side air bags for driver and all passengers, side impact door beams, stability control with traction control and antilock brakes with brake assist and EBD. Also gets 25 mp gallon.

Best Features

We like the CD player, tonneau cover and darkened windows for privacy. The spare tire cover is attractive as are the alloy wheels with wheel locks.

Worst Features

The FM radio reception is poor. That could be improved. The rear seat leg room is a little cramped. There really is no rear bumper, the spare tire cover would take all rear impacts.
