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


Previously purchased an '07 Subaru Outback and disappointed with the interior space, although a great driving machine. Have had the Rav4 for 3 weeks and my wife and I absolutely love this car. Excellent driving position and front seat comfort and visibility while the 4 cylinder engine provides more than adequate power. If we lived up north I would recommend the all wheel drive, but in Maryland and/or further south the FWD is excellent since EST and traction control are standard. The 6 cylinder only truly necessary if one lives in a hilly area. Averaging 25 MPG. Our favorite car in 40 years of driving.

Best Features

Interior space. Driving position. Visibility. Comfort. Exterior appearance.

Worst Features

Interior door panel for driver cuts in a little too much. Lighting on dash middle console hard to read in daylight. (Only minor complaints)
