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


My wife's vehicle, she loves it. Looked at Honda CRV, no comparison. RAV is much sturdier and roomier. Great utility, Camry reliability, pretty good gas mileage (for SUV it's great) and lots of room. I can't imagine a more space efficient vehicle. Takes me a while to find a comfortable seating position for a long drive - I'm 6'2". Wife is 5'3", says the RAV is even more comfortable than my Camry for her. Swing-out back door is a little awkward at times, but you get used to it. Tire pressure sensor is a pain at times (cold weather), but you can disable it. Overall, we've had the RAV 15 months, couldn't be happier.

Best Features

Space, utility, back seat is comfortable and very roomy - no complaints sitting back there. Wife loves sunroof, interior and exterior design, 18" wheels, sitting high, passing gas pumps (very good MPG for SUV).

Worst Features

Occasional wind noise. Different tailgate design. Steering wheel seems like it could use more tilt angle (lower) and more telescoping length.
