Pros

Well rounded car for around town, back and forth to work.  The 4 Cyl. has plenty of power for my needs.

Cons

The brakes could be better on the 2008.  I wish I had gotten the heated seats with the leather,

My Rav4's A Keeper — Love my RAV4. I like not having to worry about using too much gas when I run around town. It gets fairly good gas mileage. Maintenance has be very low cost. The brakes could be better on the 2008. I wish I had gotten the heated seats with the leather, Well rounded car for around town, back and forth to work. The 4 Cyl. has plenty of power for my needs.

Rav4 Great In Town Or On The Road. — Our RAV4 v6 is a dream to drive on the highways. We have had the RAV4 for 6 months and have had it on three 1500 mile trips through desert, mountains and seashores. Good handleing both heavy or light loads and brakes good enough for the freeways. We have made 24-25 miles per gallon mileage for the last three month. Great car for city or road.

Pros

My wife loved this vehicle, and for good reason.  It did everything she wanted a vehicle to do.

Cons

Not much really, it did the job reliably and consistently, while looking damn good.

Would Definitely Buy This Again - For My Wife. — I got the Ultra-Loaded Rav4, complete with keyless entry, push-button ignition, leather interior, heated front seats, sunroof, you name it. Surprising array of features on an entry-level small SUV. Power is to be expected from a 2.0l, 4cyl engine, but I would definitely rank it above the others in its class. I'm no off- roader, but I got stuck in some mud once and needed a 350 pound guy to "push" my car out of the mud - despite having engaged the push-button 4WD. If only the 3.5l V6 variant was available in the Caribbean.

Love My Rav4 — I did a lot of research up front before buying my first RAV4 with the new body style (which changed in 2006) I liked my 06 so much I traded it in for this 08. I work in the computer service industry and this vehicle has all of the features I needed with lots of cargo space and the 269 HP V6 with the 5 speed transmission (the same engine and power train found in the Toyota Avalon)it's great for crisp performance while still giving 23 MPG in the city.
