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


I needed a 2nd car that is easy to take my 85 year old Mother back and froth to the doctors, shopping and so-on. I looked at the CRV and Forester but the V6 Rav4 Sport with the Sport app Pkg missing the UGLY wort of a spare tire hanging off the back door. I would have passed if it had the spare on the door. Anyway, I ended up getting 3k off sticker price and must say it was worth it. My first car is an Audi A4Q and I had no idea how cheap the poor plastic everything Toyota builds car out of was, my Audi is light years ahead in build quality and dash layout. If you drive easy the 4wd V6 Rav4 gets decent MPG's, I always get 20 in the city and 26 to 29 Hwy. If your heavy on the gas you'll pay.

Best Features

V6 engine, ease of entry, Magnetic Grey paint looks better than any color I've seen on a Rav4.

Worst Features

Very sorry I couldn't order Leather on the Sport Model, I miss my heated seats too. 6 speed trans. is long over due on the V6. Lift back hatch would be improvement. I hope the looks improve with the 2012 face lift
