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


I have had this Rav4 for almost 2 weeks. It's a Base V6 4wd. The first tank of gas gave me an avg mileage 24 mpg for a combination of Highway and City. Ride quality feels solid but engine noise is very evident for the first few gears and once we pick up speed >40 miles you can hardly hear a hum. I chose the Rav4 over CRV, just because it offers a v6 option and Honda doesn't. I am hoping 270 Hp coupled with 4wd should suffice to drive on hilly and snowy winters.

Best Features

The most attractive feature I noticed is the hill descent control. For some reason I didn't understand how to get the hill ascent control working.

Worst Features

2nd row seats can be folded flat with levers provided near the rear door, but, they seem too flimsy and I am doubtful that they might break if I repeat using them few more times. I also wish Toyota considers offering Auto Up/down windows on all doors like they did on the Camry 2010.
