Good car--dumb interior
By Sue in Colorado on


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


Test drove & extensively researched both 2010 RAV4 & CRV before buying--(previously had a 2002 CRV & loved it). Comparison was a tossup, so got a RAV4 mostly just to "try something new". After 2 months...it's a great car, but overall, think I preferred my CRV. RAV4 interior design/quality leaves much to be desired. Biggest letdown is the whole front console/storage/cupholder arrangement--storage room is unhandy and limited; your drink blocks access to some controls & dashboard storage nook; plastic is flimsy; center console too low for an armrest. And if they can dispense with the clunky exterior tire on Sport model--why not on ALL RAV4's??

Best Features

Keyless entry is a fabulous convenience; & the heated seats are pure heaven in our cold Colo weather. I've never had a V6 before--pickup is great for passing on highway. Bluetooth is convenient; though recipients say my voice sounds fuzzy. Auto-on headlights are great; legroom good (I'm 5'10").

Worst Features

OEM tires wimpy in snow--replaced them with all- season Michelins. Cupholders unwieldy & block access to dash storage & controls; front center console armrest too low. Back seat center armrest hard to lower; cupholders waaay too small. Plastic too flimsy; controls distracting & not very intuitive.
