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


This seems to be a good car. My wife has a 2008 CRV and I naturally compare the 2. CRV has a nicer interior, but not as comfortable. The CRV is a higher trim level. CRV has better pick up and, so far, better fuel mileage. RAV4 is easy to get in an out of, has a lower lift to load back, easier folding seats, looks more manly and has better visibility. The cruise stalk is terrible, in the way. 2001 Escort was on the wheel, why can't a 2008 RAV4?. Doors should look when you put in gear. This is more of a runaround then a fall in love vehicle.

Best Features

AC controls are large. Low lift in to back area. Easy to get into. Good pickup. Great visibility.

Worst Features

Hard cover for back area, better user manual. Doors should look when put in gear. Arm rest for driver. Hate the shift gate
