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


Great car. I have only had it 3 weeks but I am impressed (good). My other vehicle is F-150 V-8, but this little 4 banger (4 cyl) really has the power, I can't imagine a V-6 in this thing. It only has about 870 miles so far but it really goes fast, I have to watch my speed to keep it under 70 mph. We took the car over to the coast to break in the engine. Up hill and down around sharp curves it was great, power was right there better than my F-150 V-8. Gas mileage is outstanding... on our road trip to the coast and back, freeways at 70-80... my average is 28.1 mpg. I could not believe it. The only bad thing is the brakes. You really have to push the brake pedal hard when coming to a stop sign.

Best Features

powerful 4 cyl, gas mileage, cargo space, good road feel and steering

Worst Features

Softer arm rests for long trips. Lumbar support on both front seats and also less brake effort to stop.
