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


The V6 on this little SUV jumps and accelerates well. Coming from a standard 5-speed 4x4 (Pathfinder), it's taking me a little getting used to the auto tranny lag time on the gas pedal. But the power is very impressive once engaged. The ride is very smooth. Has reduced noise, compared to my CRV. The tapered cabin provides more space to the front seats than you'd think. Haven't tested it off road yet, but soon.

Best Features

Rides smooth with a lot of performance.

Worst Features

Needs an option for a 2-speed transfer case on 4WD models. A 4x4 without crawl speed limits its off-road capability significantly.
