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


This is my first Toyota. It's been a little over one month. The first week I couldn't believe my eyes. I got 400 miles on the first tanks. WOW! 25 mpg for bumper to bumper traffic. And then it went downhill from there. I am now lucky to get 300 per tank or 19 mpg. Cold weather this week, the back brakes are making a high pitched noise when stopping.

Best Features

Since this is my first SUV, it would be the cargo space. I fit a 6 foot bookcase in. Saved me from renting a truck or paying for delivery

Worst Features

My nephew's Corolla seats are more supportive for the back then the Rav4.
