    Leaves A Lot To Be Desired — Compared to other Toyotas, the Rav4 is a bit of a disappointment. The interior is laden with cheap plastics and the exterior paint job is extremely thin, chipping from any and all road debris. Acceleration is terrible -- reving to 4,000 rpms going from 0-45 and still taking 10 or more seconds to do so. This car would definitely benefit from more horsepower. Brakes and steering are a little soft (but that is expected with Toyota) and road noise is pretty loud. Seats are also very stiff and begin fraying pretty easily. On the plus side, it has lots of cargo space, a decent CD/AM/FM system with aux input, and reasonable legroom as well as good gas mileage.

    Pros: Gas mileage, stereo, cargo space

    Cons: Underpowered, cheap materials and paint job, road noise

    Reliable And Comfortable — Love the car: easy to drive and really great for families... and everybody knows you can rely on the maker.

    Pros: It's really really comfortable

    Cons: The trunk's door is so heavy and it opens on the opposite way of the sidewalk... and there's no good lightening on the trunk, so if you want to get your things from the trunk at night... good luck.

    I4 Giving 27 Mpg 80% Hwy, 20% City — Traded up from a Subaru Legacy wagon, Rav4 gives more room especially in the 2nd row seating. Rear cargo area is really decent for ice chest, etc. I4 engine more than adequate power on freeway on ramps.

    Awesome Award Winning Vehicle — I love the fuel economy and also that the car is very roomy and easy to get around. Very powerful too. The color is nice and has a lot of added features that come only with the limited trim like dual A/C.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Powerful, efficient and roomy.

    Cons: nothing

    Stylistic Gorgeous — I like everything about it, just need a van for family comfort, 2011 XLE AWD to be exact. But the Rav4 is a car I will recommend for those people really looking to have family fun or somebody that just want to save in gas.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Perfect for somebody looking to save on gas and have the power of AWD.

    Cons: No navigation.
