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


The height and size of the doors enables easy entry and exit. Forward visibility from the drivers seat is excellent. A short turning radius is helpful when parking. The power seat and tilt & telescoping wheel help to gain a comfortable seating position. The ride is stiffer than a car’s ride. It seems like a 5-speed transmission would be helpful also for the 4-cylinder engine. The RAV4 is quick and does not have the usual 4-cyl engine noise at highway speeds. There is a transmission clunk on the first engagement of ‘Drive’ each morning.

Best Features

Power adjustable seat, large outside mirrors, high seating position, front- end style, easy entry and exit, short turning radius, convenient controls, high clearance (bumpers do not scrape on concrete parking guides).

Worst Features

No compass, transmission clunk, no body side molding, no navigation features, spare tire location, no garage door opener link, pricy mud-guards (over $200 installed).
