    1999 Toyota RAV4 4 Door AWD Review

    All Year Ride — Great little rig. Underpowered and a little noisey, but dependable & good all around vision. The rims are awful. I've had 4 crack. Toyota refuses to do anything. The Dept. of Transport are afraid of Toyota. In my opinion a major safety hazard & terrible design flaw. Toyota rides on their " we can do no wrong reputation? If you plan to buy one, go get aftermarket rims like I had to do after buying two Toyota replacements.

    Pros: Compact, tough little truck, dependable (so far)

    Cons: Underpowered, totally crappy, unacceptable garbage rims that aren't fit for a wheelbarrow

    1999 Toyota RAV4 4 Door AWD Review

    Reliable And Great Value For Money — 2.0 ltr petrol engine is more than powerful enough for this vehicle. for it's size it's actually quite a light car and has very impressive off road capabilities considering it's not a thoroughbred 4x4.

    Pros: great value, very reliable, perfect for cyprus roads

    Cons: quite dated interior, non selective and permanent 4 wheel drive increases fuel consumption.

    Good Car If You Enjoy A Little Camping And Off-roading — Overall I enjoy the RAV4 and while she's not the prettiest girl at the prom with a little dressing up she just might turn a head or two. I've installed several mods that make her handle better, off-road worlds better, and look much better. Brakes are my only real complaint , the Japanese, Australian, and some European versions have disc brakes that weren't even an option here, WHY? I work outdoors all over the place often driving on "jeep" trails and cross country and so far she's done well. She's no jeep but she hasn't gotten stuck yet. Handles well in the rain, haven't tried it on snow or ice yet.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Reliability, great gas mileage, can be equipped to be flat towed behind an RV (manual shift only), fun to drive, with decent tires and a small lift can do some light off-roading

    Cons: Rear drum brakes, road noise, seats could be a little more comfortable, rather plain looking old girl
