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


We bought our RAV-4 at the beginning of the year. We got the RAV when the price dropped to the same level as the Forester. The stock tires were fine the end of the first winter. I bought some Blizzak DM-V1s for this winter as the OEMs have poor ratings for winter driving. No problems with combined mileage at 27+ mpg. The vehicle rides a little rough and the steering, brakes, and accelerator are a bit sensitive.

Best Features

AWD in this late fall snow and ice. Excellent traction with the DM-V1s. The 4 WD lock works very well when desired. 27+ mpg combined is very good. Good acceleration and control ability. My wife likes the design (looks) better than the Forester.

Worst Features

The side opening rear door is a pain. The OEM tires wear fast and do not deserve a M&S designation. Decrease the sensitivity of the steering, brakes, and accelerator.
