Pros

Going on 100K miles and no major problems yet. (Knock on wood)

Cons

MPG could be better for a 2.0 engine.

Love Mine. — Nice car, needs mods to stand out because a lot of RAV4s around are stock silver with stock alloy rims. Drives well, especially in snow, AWD is perfect for this car, as it's extremely hard to lose traction in snow. Not too light, not too heavy. Gets decent gas mileage, (20-22 city 25 highway), and all around is a fun car to drive.

Toyota Rav 4 — This is a cheap suv, but it isn't a good family car, because is too little, anyway you seat good on the front seats, but back you seat like if you are in a coupè. Technology is not the best, it is too slow and it isn't also a good off-road suv.

Pros

Best small 3Dr SUV that money can buy. If the 2000cc was available in Singapore, dream car for any who desire a nimble 'off-roader'.

Cons

Just about none

Toyota Rav4 3dr 1800cc (2002 - 2006) — It was a black RAV4 3 Dr. Bought it coz' one of my friends was driving it then. Very good car. Toyota amazing reliability. Good fuel economy and very fast coz' it was light. Small enough to park in tight corners and large enough to carry people and long objects around. Seats were collapsible and removable. A very versatile car

Newest Version Of This Car Is Okey, But As It Gets +5 Years, Its More Expensive Maintaining It — Over all for a +5 to 10 years car, this is a good one esp. for family use. Not good for rainy, slippery roads. Need to upgrade to much better power steering wheel Has a lot of space, back seats can be folded to give more room for cargos and stuff.

Pros

Best vehicle I've ever owned.  Has not required a single repair!  Runs as smoothly and handles as well as it did when I bought it 9 years ago.  4WD works great in heavy weather.

Cons

Frankly, can't think of any cons.

It's All Good — Nice tight turning radius. 4WD works exceptionally well; I've driven thru snow well over a foot deep with no problem. A/C still going strong after 12 years! A surprising amount of cargo space for a compact SUV. By far, the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Rav4 — It's a RAV4....need I say more? The acceleration is loud but slow. Braking is pretty quick but you aren't going that fast to begin with. It handles fairly well considering how I drive. It handles a hard rear ending very nicely. The interior is decent but nothing special. Not great gas mileage but has held up well.

Solid. Looks Good. Should be Reliable

Cons

Tacky Interior

Rav 4 Nrg — Just bought it, its a RAV 4 NRG and its my first 4x4. Its a nice drive, solid, with a good engine. God looking Exterior. Not the best looking Interior, too many different coloured panels. But it is practical. Hopefully very reliable and I'll update this when I've had a proper chance to test it:-)

I Love My Rav4 — I bought this car in 2001, when the new fleet came to Puerto Rico. I just love it. The handling, the performance, and everything else is great. Like some people say, Toyotas never die, if you now how to maintain it. I try to keep up with the maintenance, and only once I had to make a serious repair, but it was done due to bumps and holes in the road. Overall, it is a really great vehicle. I recommended to anyone! I JUST LOVE MY RAV4!!!!
