10k miles in 3 months: reliable but uncomfortable
By tunisjs on


2010 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I bought 2010 Rav4 base 4x4 at Carmax on my return from overseas.
I needed a reliable, roomy SUV quickly for a long road trip.
I love to drive.
Fully loaded with stuff, using a/c, 28mpg highway (despite only 4 gears, a happy surprise).
Totally reliable, lots of storage room, side swinging rear door ok, full size spare tire a godsend.
Grossly uncomfortable driving position for this 6'2" 210lb male, no lumbar support, my knees rubbed against console and window controls.
The worst was the loud, arthritic creaking from all the RAV4's body joints on launches, turns and stops!
It sounded like a Yugo.
What's up with Toyota?
I traded it in on a used GLK.

Best Features

MPG, full size spare tire, roomy in back seat and storage area, reliable.

Worst Features

add 5th gear to 4 cyl transmission, tighten body joints to get rid of creaking, add lumbar support to front seats.
