I love my Toyota 2004 rav4.

I'm a first owner of a 2004 Toyota rav4, almost 19 yr old and 176000 odo in it. I can't praise this car enough, this car is nothing but good to me all this years. This car has never failed on me, betrayed me or leave me behind.Like other people have mentioned it's going to be very very hard to part from it. My car has a soul . Even after hurricane ian, when the car got flooded, my car is still running strong. When the insurance company came out and checked it out they totaled my car.i Remember calling my husband crying and telling him , how the insurance will take my car away because it's totaled. So I told him, no matter what they will offer me, that car is going nowhere. Just thinking about , how they would take my car to the junk yard and press it flat, no I don't think so! So there you go, that's how much I love my Toyota rav4.


The perfect vehicle for Hawaii

The only negative I have to say about our 2004 RAV4 FWD is that it will be extremely difficult to replace if that time ever comes. It is as close to the perfect vehicle you can get for driving on Oahu because it is so compact with a high driving position for visibility. RAVs are not the same since they enlarged them in 2006. The 2004 is well thought out with lots of cubbyholes for storage plus folding and removable rear seats. The a/c still works fine, which is important here. The accelerator is a bit touchy but it has surprising get up and go. The white pearl finish still looks brilliant after 19 years (garaged) and the seat upholstery has held up quite well. The design is timeless so it could pass as a much newer vehicle. My wife thinks it rides a little rough over the broken pavement that is common here. No surprise with the short wheelbase and sprung for AWD. But it's fine for me and I value the ground clearance. I am 6-3 and fit well. Lots of headroom and the driver's seat adjusts enough for me to find a comfortable position. I would not want to drive it for many hours at a time but that is another reason it works so well in Hawaii. Our car has been completely reliable with and exceptionally low cost of ownership. I will keep singing the praises of this car. There is nothing out there today that is quite like it.


Toyota has our vote for reliability & value

Great size vehicle for a teenager, very happy with safety features and convienence of folding rear seats . Gets great gas mileage & has 4WD to get through any snow!
