Nothing! — Thisis the second Toyota Rav4 I have owned. The first was a 1996 and was fantastic. The same goes for this model. This is a smaller SUV/truck and gets fantastic gas mileage, averaging 26 city and 30 highway miles. The V6 engine gives it great acceleration. The back folds down for cargo room. This vehicle is dependable and upkeep is reasonable. What I found most interesting with this car is the headlights. I know that sounds odd, though we had lived in a mountain community. On regular beam, people would flash as if we had the brights on! When the brights are on, the distance you can see is phenomenal. The one down side is the view out the front windows. With the angular frame, peripheral view requires an extra look, though this isminimal compared to the many positive features. This car is great on re-sale and holds it's worth, as it should. Dependable, great gas mileage, nice family car.

Great Car For Erveryday Use And Capability — only negative thing I really have to say is that the seats can be a little firm on a long ride. Overall though its a great everyday car with good power, decent fuel economy, and room for people and cargo, and an excellent reliability factor.

Pros

The Toyota Rav4 is a great small SUV. It has plenty of inside room and great cargo space. The handling is excellent up to 90+ mph.

Cons

This model of the Rav4 has the swing gate rather than the lift gate. I like it, but would prefer the lift. Also, it has struts rather than shocks, whick makes for a bumpier ride.

Excellent Car For It's Size. — I have never had any problems from this car. I have only had to replace the tires. The interior space including head and leg room is huge. The back seats recline and fold flat for more cargo space. It has a sunroof and heated seats. It's a great SUV.

Awesome family car

Cons

squeeks and rattles at 60k

Great Car — THe car was so great we replaced it with a brand new model. At 60k we started having squeeks and rattles that were driving us nuts. The black forest green is pretty but a biatch to keep clean. Really great fuel economy for a 4cyl SUV. Back seat was great. Car seat was a snap to install, although the latch design in the 2013 new body is far better.

Pros

Car looks great and is a perfect first car for my son.

Cons

Gas mileage isn't as great as I would have suspected for a car like this.

Fun And Reliable Little Truck — As I mentioned, the best part about the car is that its fun to drive and very reliable. The only real downside so far has been the relatively poor gas mileage. I assumed that a car like this would have great mileage.

Good (little) Suv — GREAT in snow, great MPG for what it is, but smaller than it seems. Tons of headroom, decent field of vision while driving. The trunk design in annoying, and the front seats are taller than they need to be, but the width it quite small
