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


just traded in 05 Escape. I thought that was good until I tried this. Big difference. Better gas mileage from the 3.5 v6, great handling, fully loaded, quieter but still road noise, front wheels getting brake dust,smoother ride, tighter turning radius. 2 trip meters, outside temp., Escape did not have, but needs mileage computer. Seats a little tight up front, too much room in rear. Must be for Japanese market, smaller people. Could easily move seat rails back 2 in. Center console box could have been bigger, higher. Like to have grab bar like Escape. Blue tooth cellphone echoes. Rear hatch should open up, not sideways. A problem unloading with parallel parking. Will buy again.

Best Features

Tilt wheel, lea seats, inside space,smooth and powerful v6 engine, headroom,

Worst Features

Upward opening hatchback, gas mileage computer, privacy control on blue tooth, larger moonroof, more front leg room, more foot room in front, larger front seat, radio aerial built in to windshield, louder alarm horn (helps locate car in crowded area) less plastic inside, needs grab bar in front.
