Pros

Second one. Runs well. First one Never needed anything fixed. Just maintained. QUALITY RELIABLE vehicle.

Cons

Would have liked the hatch door to open up instead of side ways but would lose the additional storage inside where a tire would otherwise be.

Phenomenal Reliability And Low Cost Of Ownership. — The RAV 4 is a work horse that keeps on giving all the way to resale time. Never a need to TRADE IN a Toyota. Can always be sold privately. People are always looking for these cars and Tacomas with good reason.

Pros

V6 engine, 4WD but still averages 23 MPG in the summer and 21 MPG in the winter

Cons

Last year with the ill-advised swing-out tailgate door, dumb cup holders and not a fan of Keyless ignition, but when you buy lightly used, you take what you can get.

Two In The Driveway, Now. — See everything written about the 2011 model. Found another low-mile lease turn-in and snapped it up because Toyota dropped the V6 after 2012. Better yet, this one came pre-wired and with a back-up camera for towing. So we will try to keep the miles down on this one, but it will be the vacation car since it will have the hitch.

Amazing !!!! — The first time I purchased this vehicle, I need a big car where I can put my kids stuff or our stuff when we go on a long trips and this car can fit everything we need and especially the little compartment thats underneath the trunks. When I say I drive this car alot - I mean A LOT. drove from nyc to Connecticut/New Haven, PA, Washington and even to South Carolina. soon, we'll be making our trips to Canada or heck maybe to California with the car. Bought this car in March and now we're in the month of July, and I already put close to 8000 miles.
