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


Well, it's gone. Bought it for SUV room and all weather capability but it didn't deliver. And the reliability wasn't what I expected, either. Problems with rattles, stereo, air in brake lines, and loud road and wind noise all doomed the RAV. I did average 23 mpg, and the tires had plenty of tread after 31k, but the Toyota reputation didn't deliver. It does have good room inside and a comfortable back seat (no third row on Sport). Missing a lot of features that are standard on other cars like homelink, 5sp automatic, heated seats, good stereo, audio controls on steering wheel. It just failed to live up to the Toyota hype. Sorry.

Best Features

MPG, modest depreciation

Worst Features

Above mentioned standard features on other cars costing less.
