A Great Compact Utility Vehicle
By JBOS on


2008 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


This is a great car with the exception of the stock tires. If you get this vehicle, get new tires (I have Assurance Comfort Treads by Goodyear). We just had 16 inches of snow and not only did the Rav handle it like a champ it exceeded all expectations. The 4WD did exactly what it was supposed to do. The drive is steady and the V6 is very powerful. Just step on the gas and you will feel the 269 horses propel you out of the thick of traffic. It is a reliable car of good quality that doesn't feel heavy or cumbersome to drive.

Best Features

4wd, V6 engine, 269 horses, multi disk player is nice too. Love having a full size spare. I travel a lot on highway and don't worry about a flat especially in bad weather. I know the spare will handle the elements.

Worst Features

The fuel economy is not the best. About 270 miles for a full tank on the V6. But I live in a major city with terrible traffic and spend hours driving at 20 and 30 in traffic jams, so 270 miles in those conditions isn't all that bad for a V6. If you want fuel economy, then go for the 4 cyl.
