Owned & Drove This Beauty From Sep 2003 To End Jul 2007. — This is an awesome car and the best that I ever owned and drove. It has never failed me and my hubby whenever we drove it. But after owning & driving this beauty for close to 4 years, with a very very heavy heart and much deliberation, we bade goodbye to our trusty RAVee. Why??? After all, we are in Singapore!!! I am 100% sure I will keep this car for good if I am staying in other country!! This RAVee is now somewhere out there....coz we exported it out..too good to be scrapped and ended up in the junkyard!!

Pros: An awesome car in terms of reliability, pick-up/torque & performance. Though a 1800cc car...sure does not perform like one...

Cons: Can't think of any!!

Bought This Beauty Brand New. Owned It From Sep 2003 To Jul 2007. — Throughout the time I drove this RAVee, it has never failed us in performance and reliability. Though it was a 1.8cc car, its pick-up/torque was awesome. I took pride in driving it everyday..one of the best car I ever bought/owned. But unfortunately, I am in S'pore.. where the longer you keep the car the more the car depreciates. Which is what happened to my poor RAVee...bought it for S$97000...after close to 4 yrs...my RAVee is worth only S$54000....here it makes sense to change & get a new car no matter how much I love this babe! Oh yes..in my government's efort to reduce pollution, our car ownership is determined by the COE..a certificate that cost you as much as S$100,000 to as low as S$1 depending on the bidding but is valid for only 10 years!!! I am 100% sure I will keep this car for good if I am staying in other country!!

Pros: Though it is a 1.8cc car, it does not drive like one. Everything about this car is awesome!!!

Cons: Can't think of any!!

Great Vehicle! — It is a great gas saver, low mileage, 4X4 all wheel drive, gets you thru tough Cleveland winters. Has new tires, does not require a lot of maintenance, is a great vehicle to drive. It has not needed any repairs just normal oil changes and wipers.

Pros: good on gas, smooth handling, great looking 4x4 sports suv

Cons: None
