2 WD Limited 4 CYL
By David on


2009 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This car has been getting 28 MPG with mixed city and highway driving. The power is fine even with the 4 cyl engine. My last vehicle was a 2005 4Runner and the interior head room even with the moon roof is much better than the 4Runner. The Bluetooth hands free stereo is a must. The backup camera is a waste (too small). A back up beeping sensor is much more useful. The only quality issue I have found is a clunking sound shifting from reverse when the engine is cold. This appears to be a common problem with the Rav4. The interior room with the seats flat also rivals the 4Runner. The only thing the 4Runner does better is off road. By the way a 6 cyl 4Runner with 4 wheel drive averaged 20 MPG.

Best Features

Bluetooth Handsfree system and push button start.

Worst Features

5 speed transmission paired with the new 2.5L 4 cyl engine.
