Good vehicle, minor annoyances

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


The RAV4 provides an elevated driving position, good and adaptable carrying capacity and a comfortable ride. Economy, so far, has been very good at 24 MPG in suburban driving, near 30 MPG on the highway.

Best Features

This small body SUV/CUV with V6 engine has excellent acceleration, even uphill with several passengers and A/C running. Seats have a "European stiffness", quite comfortable on long drives.

Worst Features

Car really needs keyed door locks on the passenger's and rear cargo doors. The adjustable steering wheel, at its lowest position is 1.5" too high. Driver's seat doesn't move back far enough. I'm not tall (5'9", with 30" inseam) but could use an extra inch or two more of leg space.
