good except in heavy snow
By MReid on


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


Bought the RAV-4 in Florida before moving to Germany. It is a 4WD with all season tires. In heavy snow & ice I have been slipping and sliding everywhere, rear-end fishtails out of turns and I'm not driving fast. I find this disappointing. I was expecting much better traction in the snow. I also think Toyota needs to put the emergency flashers closer to the drivers side hands and not over to the passengers side, it is very inconvenient. Also, Toyota could redesign the rear door to open up instead of out. Otherwise, I love the vehicle, great cargo space and great turning radius.

Best Features

Large & roomy, great cargo space

Worst Features

move emergency flasher button to drivers side where more convenient to locate in emergency. Make rear door open upward instead of outward as it is awkward sometimes.
