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


This new SUV is indeed fun to drive. I couldn't wait each day to drive it. 4 cycler engine still has enough power making acceleration sharp. So, everything is good except for one thing: too noisy when accelerating. I found the noise is not coming from engine but from poor insulation or design of exhaust system. I recommend the manufacture should recall to replace this noisy system with quite one. I feel strongly that once this noise issue is solved, the RAV4 4X4 base model can be the best selling SUV in the world and people will love it even more. Sincerely hope the manufacturer will listen to our voices.

Worst Features

Key improvement is to reduce road noise. The noise seems coming from exhaust system or poor insulation. Manufacturer should replace this noisy system with quite one.
