2008 Rav4 - rough ride
By Lee on


2008 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Just bought a 2008 Rav4 4cyl fwd, base model with a few extras. A friend has an 05 and loves it; another has one of the original Ravs and loves it. Something must have changed. You can really, really feel the road; very rough ride. Seats are very uncomfortable. The interior is new milenium plastic. The car has an unexplained "clink" on shifting, exceleration and braking. Burned plastic smell (like I picked up a plastic bag on the muffler - hope that goes away). Really disappointing ride

Best Features

New car smell. Which is only temporary, of course.

Worst Features

Don't even know where to begin. Needs comprehensive design overhaul
