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


This is our fourth Toyota and second RAV4. The most disappointing feature has been the atrocious fuel consumption - actually getting 16/20 mpg (city/hwy). This amount of deviation from specs is very unlike Toyota. Another gripe is the v. poor visibility of the electronic displays (radio, clock) which become impossible to see during the day with sun glasses on. The car is solid, reliable, handles well, feels safe, has good seating and luggage capacity, has a fairly comfortable ride and is fun to drive.

Best Features

Overall design and feel, interior cargo and seating capacity, overall handling and safety, AWD, A/C, roof rack.

Worst Features

1) Fuel consumption, fuel consumption, fuel consumption!! 2) Visibility of displays. 3) Smoother ride. 4) Spare wheel location.
