Plain and leaky and overly expensive. Not much bang for buck

My Rav4's A Keeper — Love my RAV4. I like not having to worry about using too much gas when I run around town. It gets fairly good gas mileage. Maintenance has be very low cost. The brakes could be better on the 2008. I wish I had gotten the heated seats with the leather, Well rounded car for around town, back and forth to work. The 4 Cyl. has plenty of power for my needs.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Well rounded car for around town, back and forth to work.  The 4 Cyl. has plenty of power for my needs.

Cons: The brakes could be better on the 2008.  I wish I had gotten the heated seats with the leather,

Love My Rav4 — I did a lot of research up front before buying my first RAV4 with the new body style (which changed in 2006) I liked my 06 so much I traded it in for this 08. I work in the computer service industry and this vehicle has all of the features I needed with lots of cargo space and the 269 HP V6 with the 5 speed transmission (the same engine and power train found in the Toyota Avalon)it's great for crisp performance while still giving 23 MPG in the city.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Top performance and comfort while still affordable to operate

Cons: nothing
