2006 Toyota RAV4 SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had trouble with availablity of LTD V6, especially in Everglade Metallic, and so probably paid more than I should have BUT I love this car! I have no regrets having opted for the V6. It has so much pep and, as a result, is a lot of fun to drive. As for the reduced gas mileage, well, think again. I've taken two highway trips so far and both times got 31 mpg. On local mountain roads I'm averaging just over 24 mpg. Needless to say, I'm very pleased. I've not been back to actual stop and go traffic yet, so cannot comment on actual city driving. In sum, this is a great little (not so little anymore) car. I highly recommend it. I'm having a bit of a problem getting the rear seats to go down using the one- touch lever. I'm planning to check it out at dealer with first oil change


Best Features

Double glove box. Heated mirrors. Acceleration ability.


Worst Features

I would have liked a compass and a different color for instrument panel lights.

Review

I have had 7 toyotas in the last 25 years. Everyone was great. Last car was the 2003 Matrix, it was super. My Rav4 is the best yet. I have driven it for 3 weeks and I am at 1500 miles. Fantastic acceleration.


Best Features

Speed, lots of space, good sound from the Radio.


Worst Features

Cup holders not stable. Wanted a navigator and a compass.

Review

Head snapping acceleration. Being 6'3" I find there is plenty of room front and back. Just a joy to drive! The standard stereo could be better. The display panel on the stereo and time/temp is impossible to read w/sunglasses on.


Best Features

V6, interior space


Worst Features

Left hinging tailgate, better padding on the armrests

2006 Toyota RAV4 SUV 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

At first I thought it might be a bit small for my 2 toddlers, but it is so roomy in the back seat a tall person fits comfortably, lots of leg and head room, my kids love it and I agree. The fuel efficiency is excellent, I sometime feel like I am driving a car. It handles great.


Best Features

I especially love the MP3 player and the LSD Spin out control.


Worst Features

Make the lumbar support on the seats standard. Better speakers.

Review

Vehicle is brand new and I absolutely am loving it. I have wanted a RAV4 for a very long time, and since the redesign for 2006 I had to test drive it and that's all it took. The "SPORT" is the way to go w/18" tires. You give up the power driver seat & 3rd row seating but its a much better driving experience. Now my 1999 Camry is very jealous!


Best Features

Everything!!


Worst Features

Make "standard" elecric drivers seat.
