2008 Toyota RAV4 SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this car in 2012 with 16,000 miles. It now has 127,000 miles and I have never a single problem. Just the usual stuff like brakes and tires. Absolutely reliable! Its paid off and I hope to get another 150,000 miles. She is my baby....
Just gave up our 10-year old (we bought it new), 145,000 mile 2008 RAV4 Sport with the V-6 engine. Since it was a Sport it didn't have the cushy ride of the Limited, but we knew that going in, and it excelled in the TN/NC mountains' twisting roads. The V-6 was well worth it - had much, much more punch than we expected, which paid off time and again merging onto busy freeways and passing on 2-lane rural highways. The cargo space with the seats down was best in class and ample for us and our camping gear. We never had a problem with it, would have kept it longer, but figured it was time for a self-reward, so let it go . . . (after a LOT of online comparing of compact SUVs, from the BMW X3 to the Honda CRV to the Subaru Forester and others) . . . for another RAV4!
