I havent had my Rav4 long, but i absolutely love it. It seems very versatile and adequate for darn near anything. I've been surprised by the power it has despite being a four cyclinder yet stays very efficient as well. I like the interior design but do wish for a little more leg room for the backseat. I prefer the boxier maybe jeepier look of the 2012 and older but i have heard friends with this era model complain about the rear door being too heavy with the spare tire, and that they have trouble closing while parked on a hill and that the hinges are insufficient. I bought mine used and while the door seems fine it does rattle a bit upon closing. I needed a family vehicle and efficient commuter car with awd and this hits all the boxes and then some. All with Toyota's legendary reliability. Im a person who wants to be in love with his vehicle and keep it til it dies and i imagine im gonna have this Rav4 for a long time!

Overall great vehicle!

by from Colorado Springs, CO on September 1, 2017

We needed a vehicle larger than a car, but smaller than an SUV and this is the perfect size. Reliable, comfortable & plenty of truck space for traveling.

This car met all my needs.

by from Bothell on August 18, 2017

Very close to my former Lexus RX330 I used to own. Very spacious and great driving for bad weather condition.

I have really enjoyed owning my 2012 RAV4 Sport V6 - easy to drive, easy to park, handles like a sports car, great in the mountains and the snow. It is big enough for a small family of 4, has enough cargo room for normal jobs, and with the V6 and trailer hitch can tow my small utility trailer or 1500lb boat with ease. I'm just sad they don't make this vehicle / engine combo any longer - don't know what I will replace it with when it is time.

I LOVE being a RAV4 driver. This car is my pride and joy. Reliable and very attractive. I have the limited model, so the vehicle has leather/heated seats, a moon/sunroof, backup camera, and all the bells and whistles. It is absolutely my dream car. Toyota's are great cars and this is no exception. However, I do not care much for the body style of the RAV4's after 2012, so anything 2013+ does not interest me much. A used RAV will serve you well! The gas mileage is good for an SUV/crossover. Spacious on the inside with LOTS of trunk room. Love this car!

I love having the extra power of the V6 because I drive in the mountains often. I wish I had a sunroof and feel like the space in the front seats could be designed better. Like having more compartments for phone, purse, etc would be nice. I love how the seats lay down flat in the back and I can sleep back there when I'm camping. Also love the extra storage compartment in the back where the spare tire would normally be.
