Pros

Starts everyday. Burns oil. Over 240000 miles and still runs

Cons

A bit small for me but I'm 6'4"

I Call It My White Rat. — It's the other thing that will survive a nuclear explosion. Unbelievable reliability. Great gas mileage for a 15 year old 4WD SUV. It's not great to look at. I will always continue to have that kind of quality vehicle in my family.

Rav4-99 — It has nice function to help with power, however not extremely powerful. the only downside is the amount of passenger space in the back seat. Severe engine repair could be a hassle, but it rarely has reason to need such heavy repair.

Cons

power and space

Average — great car has a lot of good qualities but for me it falls short in the power department and backseat is to small otherwise it runs great handles good and has good mpg and would be good for only a small family

Peppy La Su — my only complaint is that it's noisy on the highway... as i'm not on the highway very often, i can happily live with it (and just crank the music a notch). i also find that it steams up in winter and sometimes hard to see the side views. i love my Rav4!

Pros

It is a SUV but small and compact, it is a Toyota so it will last a lifetime

Cons

Not a lot of Acceleration

45

Good Car For College Students — The acceleration isn't very much, the breaks work well but they squeak when wet. Overall though it is a good car for being 10 years old. Some people can't believe it works so well for being 10 years old. It has only been repaired once since I have had it and that was just to put new back breaks in. It is only like 20 dollars to fill it up and that lasts me about a week and a half.

Toyota Rav4 Heat — My second car, was really nippy and handled well on the road. Still got the car after 10yrs and is still in good condition. Performance and maintaince is fair not too costly but wanted a car with more power behind it.

My Thoughts — I havent been able to drive it around on my own. but when i've had the chance to take it out for a spin its hasn't failed me yet. the sound system is great. the only thing i dislike is that the engine isn;t insulated. but overal i love it.

One Of The 1st Cross Over Small Suv — One of the first cross over small SUV at that time and one of the best small SUV in the market at that time. Solid performance...great handling and stability compare to traditional SUVs, not too poweful but runs good, and fulltime AWD performs great. And always great fuel economy.

Rav 4 — I have never had any problems with my RAV4. It has been a very dependable car that helps conserve gas. I can typically travel over 400 miles on 1 tank of gas with a combination of city and highway.

good pick up with only a 4cylinder engine, comfy, and raliable

It's small, and white is not my favorite color for it

It's My Power Wheels!!! — I love how it looks like an SUV but runs like a car, and is just as comfortable too. Going on long drives is no problem and it gets like 25MPG which is key when driving to far away places like Boston-Niagara Falls or Boston-Orlando, FL
