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


Review

Have had this car for 2 years now and clocked 20k miles on it. From the outside the Sport package is quite handsome and aggressive. I don't even mind the tire on the door. Then you get in and drive it. The 4 cyl/4 speed gets the job done, but there is no joy. The handling is good for a Sport Ute but can be jarring and at times uncomfortable particularly on long trips. Tight cabin for a 6' tall guy. Interior bits are cheap. There's plenty of space for your stuff which is why we purchased the car, but coming from a '04 BMW 325i this car is a little disappointing and leaves me longing for days of yore. Toyota cheaped out on this car and it shows.


Best Features

Styling, space, economical to operate and a little bit of tossability. 4wd.


Worst Features

30 more horses and torque and a 5-6 speed auto with manual mode (seems right for a sport package). Road noise reducing measures (car's a bit of a tin can). A decent set of speakers. Better suspension tuning. Under-steer reduction. Toyota Performance Parts would be nice.

2010 Toyota RAV4 SUV Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have had this car for a year and a half.
Toyota is the worst company to deal with.

After 7,000 miles the brakes made a garggiling sound and would not come to a complete stop.
I have my wife and kids in the car up in the mountains on a sunday afternoon.
Called Toyota and they wanted to charge me $500.00 to tow the car to a dealership.
Towing NOT covered under bumper to bumper.

Also the tires on the car only lasted 22,000 miles.

The radio will turn its self off for no reason.

All the dash lites go on and off then the car dies.

BIGGEST PIECE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would not [non-permissible content removed] with a Toyota driver manual.
(it wont get the job done)

MAJOR FAIL TOYOTA

Review

I now have 24,000 miles on my 2010 base RAV4 V6.
It's been a terrific experience.
it's very powerful and the mileage is good for a vehicle of it's size.
I get 28 mpg on road trips.
i love it's handling.
this is one of the best values around.
I intend to keep it for at least 250,000 miles.


Best Features

handling, space, ground clearance, looks


Worst Features

don't like the spare tire location on the back door

Review

Purchased my Rav4 in Oct 2010 enjoy the car very much. Easy to drive and did very well in the snow during winter. I get an average of 23 mpg. In June 2011 I was rear ended while I was at a stop and the person was going 50 MPH and the car did so well in the accident. I was very impressed how well it took the hit from the other car.


Best Features

Love the 6 disc stereo, and enjoy that it drives like a car then a truck feeling like some SUV


Worst Features

The back seat can be a little loud sounding at times especially when it's raining.

Review

We bought the 2010 Rav4 base model 4 cylinder because we owned a 2003 4runner and wanted better gas milage. the Rav4 boasted 21 to 27 miles per gallon. Yeah right! More like 21 all the time! Also the "4 wheel drive" isnt really 4 wheel drive. It is only active until you reach 25 mile per hour! Then it's just a two wheel drive. And did i mention the suspension? It was sooooo stiff you get beat up in the drivers set day in and day out. Over all i was very disappointed and paid wayyyy too much for this thing! it just felt so cheap! Well we traded it in this week for a 2009 Subaru Forester!


Best Features

The fold down rear seat area.


Worst Features

Better interior quality, increase the towing capacity, soften the ride suspension.
