Got one of the last few 08 RAV4 left
By BenLiu on


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


Bought one of the few 2008 V6 AWD base model left after comparing Honda CRV, Subaru Forester, and 08 Highlander. Perfect size for my family of 4 with 2 teenagers. Like the efficiency of the electric-on-demand AWD with reasonably good mpg and absolutely fun to drive. However, don't expect the quietness/refinement of a Camry. Road vibration/noise sometimes noticeable at any speed. If you want to take advantage of the last few 08 RAV4 left like I did, make sure you check out the 09 model before making the decision as Toyota made some good improvements which may be important to you.

Best Features

Powerful V6 engine, solid frame & nice handling. Spacious 2nd row and hidden storage (without the optional 3rd row seat).

Worst Features

Gas tank too small (only 15.9 G), both front and rear center arm rests too low, 2nd row seats area a little too small for adult passenger's comfort. Clock way too small. Old fashion antenna , room bumper cover too small (both were improved on 2009 model), road vibration sometime noticeable.
