A Pleasant Surprise
By BladeRunner on


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


After driving a V8 powered 4Runner for longer than I should have, I needed to find a better MPG for my commute. The Rav4 was a pleasant surprise. I never thought I would fall in love with a small SUV. The ride is smooth yet powerful with the V6 engine. I'm averaging 23mpg which is a big step up over the 15 I was getting before. Handling is superb, although the electronic assisted steering takes some getting used to. At 6'1 space is an issue for me and I have plenty in the Rav4. I have a ton of shoulder, leg and head room and the storage bins under the cargo area are a nice feature. My road bike fits with ease with the seats folded down. I highly recommend the Rav4.

Best Features

The power of the V6 in a small vehicle. Gas mileage. JBL 9 speaker system with bluetooth and aux jack. Storage space under cargo area.

Worst Features

A slightly larger rear window to offset the spare tire blocking part of the view.
