2azfe .. engines consume oil like mad.. Toyota put the wrong rings on the pistons.. they fixed this issue on some of them if the owner raised enuff hell... but 1000.s of them slid threw the cracks and are being offered for sale on used car lots around the world.. they didn’t do a recall.. you had to threaten to drive it threw the showroom floor window before they would repair them.. they will repair them for you now for $5000 ... lol

Does What It Needs To —

Coulda had a V6. Bought the cheapest model because I didn't think I would keep it for very long. Realize now that might need a bigger vehicle for 2 kids. unless your older child is old enough to use a booster. it gets kinda tight in the 2nd row if you're managing 2 car seats. sporty is not a good word... but handles better than most CUVs. The electric steering gives fake feedback. 4wd is only good for getting out of snow. at highway speeds on snow, still need to watch your self. its also ridiculous that dealers say its ok for this engine to use up a quart of oil every 1,500 miles or so. I thought they were lying until google search showed other owners have been told the same, and their RAVs have more miles than mine. might consider another one if one with V6, 4wd and 3rd row, in newer Limited trim, i.e. rear camera, blue tooth but still have the spare tire in the back. but those are rare Wish it has rear air vents. The ones in the front are not angled well enough and the AC is pretty weak for the 100 deg + summers.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap, roomy for a small car.  Trunk area is huge

Cons: boring, slow, seats are hard, even after 50k miles

I Love It — The car handles well and gets great acceleration. It gets great gas mileage and uses regular gas. I drive a lot and it has been a pleasure to spend so much time in it. It was easy and fairly cheap to maintain.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The RAV4 is comfortable, powerful and fun to drive

Cons: I would like the a/c to cool better in the backseat area

Great Car Overall!! — Safe, reliable, easy to park because of size!! It's an excellent car for a college student, elderly couple, young couple, or young couple with small children. It's easy to get into due to the fact that it isn't real low and/or you don't have to climb up into it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Has been a great car!!!

Cons: I really can't think of any cons. It gets about 22 mpg so that could be better but it could also be worse.

Good But Get A 2007 Or Newer. Skip The 06 — This is a fantastic vehicle overall but I recommend that if you purchase one that you buy a 2007 or newer. The 2006 was the first of it's kind and has a LOT of bugs (mainly bad coils). Also the transmission shifts strangely and soils it's fluid quickly. I expect a shorter than average lifespan for this tranny.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: POWERFUL and EFFICIENT

Cons: Bad coils that are expensive to replace & a poorly designed transmission

The Best In Its Class. — This vehicle is fun to drive, versatile, reliable and easy on the gas. I like that the 4WD can be switched on and off and the 7 passenger seating is convenient when I need it. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 4WD, 7 passenger seating

Cons: Stock brakes are awful.

The Rav4' — Unfortunately it's my mom's. It's got a V4 so acceleration isn't great. Decent handling. It's pretty fun to drive. Interior is very nice. 30mpg Hold's it value. It's a toyota so there aren't any major problems with it yet. Can't turn the auto 4WD/stability off.

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

Pros: Fun to drive for 30mpg highway

Cons: V4, Stability can't be turned off
