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

The Best Choice — Japanese quality(unbreakable!), low fuel consummation(over 7.2 L/100km) good high speed - 215km/h, 0-100km/h in 10 sek. Very good off-road abilities... The interior is luxurious, the exterior is stylish!!! The handling is perfect, there is 9 airbags as serial... with 2 words - PERFECT S U V!!!! enjoy it:)

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

Pros: Stylish SUV with a lot of power and low fuel consummation

Cons: no such reasons

<3 — Performance: -Acceleration: It's so worth having a V6 it's ridiculous. On a RAV4, you feel like it's a little rocketship of power! -Braking: Brakes really well. -Handling: Turns great! Build Quality: -No repairs needed yet... -NOIIIIIIIIISYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY...mostly road noise :( You have to turn the stereo upppppppp... Appearance: -interior: I think it could be a little nicer. It's just plastic on top of the bare metal...no soundproofing at all (it's what contributes to the rattles while driving). -exterior: Only complaint is that the rear bumper seems really weak...I'm afraid to rest my knee on it. :\ Cost: -gas mileage: much nicer than the previous car I used to drive -maintenance: Ummm...it's fine? Fun Factor: I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS CAR. I might be biased because it is MY first official car. :3

Pros: Awesome value

Cons: Rather cheaply made (disappointment)
