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


I am 6'7" (36" inseam) and love my Rav4 Sport w/the V6.

The JBL audio is excellent.

I have had this car from day one, 25k miles, never a problem - other than flipping a coin for who has the car for the day.

Winter (northern Vermont) with Firestone Winterforce: excellent.
I've tried getting it to skid, nearly impossible.
Never stuck, stomping on the pedal and all four wheels really grab.

I am 6'7" tall and have no issue on the driver side (passenger side is ok, I don't sit in the rear but could if the driver seat wasn't all the way back).

My only beef is the small light in the rear door.
Minor annoyance.

Best Features

Fast acceleration, excellent passing capability on the highway (55mph to 70mph or even 35 to 50). Sport has very tight feel (it is a rough ride below 25-mph, as expected). Corners very well. JBL with 6-CD changer is excellent.

Worst Features

Improve that light in the rear inside door. That's the only complaint. Note: on long trips I do use a pillow under my left arm, the arm rest is rather hard.
