2009 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Very nice car improvement over my 2003 Subaru Forester. Others have noted the stiffness of the seats but my wife & I like that and have noticed that seats are starting to feel 'softer' with more use. The interior is designed well but the materials are budget. I'm getting between 25 & 26 MPG in overall use; some stop & go plus some highway. Very happy with my RAV4.

Best Features

Power of the V6 still with acceptable gas mileage. The build feels strong & safe. The RAV4 is very quiet on the road. I guess most cars have it now but the AUX input for MP3 players is good and easily accessible. 17" alloy wheels are excellent.

Worst Features

Interior quality could be upgraded. Air vents seem a little too high. Standard Radio is too basic even for standard equipment. I wish I'd gone for the upgrade.
