Fun to drive!
I wasn’t sold on this vehicle at first but after a few days I grew to love it! It’s super fun to drive & has most of the features I want in a vehicle. The front and back are super roomy...my bf who’s 6’ tall fits extremely well & comfortably in both the front & back of the vehicle. It has a great ride & gets good mpg. I would have given it 5 stars BUT this vehicle lacks a few very important features...ones I didn’t think to ask about because quite frankly I just assumed every vehicle had it these days. My bad! What it doesn’t have is air conditioning vents in the back of the suv! Say what!? I know...I was quite shocked to discover this as I was driving my kids around on a hot day...the vent in the dash...which the right half of is fake and doesn’t work...is supposed to cool off the back of the vehicle. Why oh why would anyone ever design a vehicle to not have a/c vents for the backseat passengers??? Another key feature it doesn’t have is remote start, however, some will have that...but don’t be like me & think it’s standard because it’s not & now I have to pay to have an after market remote start installed. Ugh. One last thing I don’t like & honestly thought no vehicle had anymore is a lever inside the vehicle on the floor alongside the drivers seat that you have to press to open the gas tank. Let’s just say the first time I stopped for gas was quite the experience. It took me a few to figure out how to open the door...sigh. But overall it’s a good vehicle.
Boring but reliable
Very very reliable, no issues at all. Engine is underpowered, but good all wheel drive system and roomy interior. Good value for the money if you don’t care about engine performance
Great Value RAV4
This car was a good in all weather, reliable, and well put together. It performed new as it did 7 years later. Toyota quality is apparent.
good family suv
rides good, looks good, goes great in the snow. small suv small but big with lots of room. the dealship wait area is clean with lots of chairs, popcorn and ice cold bottle water. a play area for the little ones. all family members are welcome.
Most reliable car I've ever owned.
Great all around vehicle. Very roomy and great gas mileage. This is my second Rav 4. They're just really well built and reliable. I love Rav 4's.
WIFE'S NEW CAR
WIFE LOVES THIS CAR! SHE REPLACED HER LEXUS IS250 WHICH WAS A GREAT CAR. I WAS WORRIED THAT SHE WOULD MISS HER LEXUS, BUT LIKES THIS CAR BETTER - MORE VISIBILITY, SIMILAR POWER, MORE REAR SEAT LEGROOM.
Good visibility for the driver. A little noisy. Zero problems. I have 45000 miles on it. It would be better with fabrics that would be easier to clean.
I had a 2008 rav4 bought it used
Bought a used 2008 Toyota RAV4 in 2010 with 50000 miles on it drove to 160000 miles on it. It is by far the best and trouble free suv I have ever owned. Never did It leave me stranded on the road although I got stuck in a storm in buffalo and couldn’t see a thing , this suv drove me to the hotel with inches of snow. If it was any other suv I would have probably been stranded on the highway. Overall all the years of owning just did oil changes and routine Maintainance. Sometimes did oil changes after 7000 miles and car just ran forever. In deep snow the all wheel drive system is not the best but I used snow tires and never really had a problem. Way to go rav4 it’s the best car.
The most reliable vehicle I've ever owned! LOVE!!
Friends & family love this car! Drives like 8 cylinder, luxurious ride, and plenty of room for passengers, luggage, etc. I love driving this gem!
Recommend or Not Recommend
So far so Good. This car has room for my legs and plenty of power for a 4 cyl. It drives nice and has a smooth comfort ride to it.
