I Love It, It Is A Perfect Average Family Suv — I loved the gas mileage. I loved the shape and rims on the vehicle. I loved the price for parts. I loved how dependable the vehicle is. even after 103,000 miles I have never experienced any mechanical issues and don't expect to for a long time.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas mileage, dependability, price, everything

Cons: Seats could be a little more comfortable for long trips.

Awesome Ride — The V6 has great acceleration and fine handling. Everything is simply great about this car especially value for money... if it wasn't for the plastic parts in the interior it would have passed as a Lexus No navigation packages were offered in Canada for this model. The upgraded audio system from JBL and the back view mirror were valuable additions

Pros: Performance, Gas mileage and built

Cons: No navigation package

Great To Drive, Plenty Of Room, Low Road Noise, Great Audio, But The Rattle In The Back Is Annoying. — * The performance is overall great, no sluggish response, and for a small SUV the turns are very smooth. *Build Quality: The build outside seems great, however, inside the car I can hear a small plastic rattling in the back. Side note: there is plenty of room on the inside, I am 6'5 and I don't feel cramped at all. *Cost of ownership: isn't bad so far. I get approx 22 MPG in the city and burbs, and the price for gas isn't terrible *Fun Fact: The steering feel very responsive, the turns are smooth and it's really fun to drive, and the blind spots aren't bad at all for a SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great on the inside and outside without the high price tag.

Cons: Wait till the Toyota issues are gone, I bought the car before I heard about the RUN AWAYS, so avoid them till the problem is 100% taken care of

Best Small Suv, That's It — This is a great small SUV. There is no other vehicle in it's category that has the power this V6 has. Few people know but it has 269HP and is the same motor that's in the lexus IS and RX, Toyota Avalon. Toyota's buttery smooth 3.5 V6 that still gets 27 on the highway. The sport has stiffer suspension and great looking 18"s with 55 profile tires and an identical spare.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A rocket.  0-60 in less than 7 for an SUV.

Cons: the silly back door still swings to the side.

Rav4 Is A Terrific Car. — The RAV4 handles incredibly well. The engine is extremely quick for a 4-cylinder. The ride is very smooth and turning is a dream. I like the overall interior and how the Ipod adapter is set up so you can change settings as you drive.

Awesome Car — what's not to like in the RAV.... near perfect.... I wish it came with in dash navigation but I was told it's only available in US models. The thing I love the most is the roaring of the very responsive engine when you press down the gas pedal

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

More Than I Expected From A Small Suv — 09 rav sport, love the V6, really quick and fun to drive, handles great.Exterior looks great, interior could be a little more advanced but not terrible, I`m 6'2" and its a comfortable ride. First foreign manufactured car ever. So far I am impressed. Traded a Dodge dakota for the Rav. Love the Rav, Dakota was ok. Rav has great gas milage and build feels solid with good braking and excelleration. Not sure about having runflats, and radio volume could be better. Overall very happy with Toyota.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive, V6 really quick, handles great, great fuel milage

Cons: runflats, radio volume

Rav4 Review (limited, V6, 4wd) — The fastest car I've ever owned. Quicker than a Mazda Miata. 0-60 in 6.1 seconds and quarter mile in 14.6 seconds! Great gas mileage to boot! Build quality is great. It's a Toyota. Appearance is sleek. Leather inside, moonroof, JBL audio + subwoofer. Cost is low. I only expect routine maintenance. It is very fun!

Pros: Gas mileage, V6, 4WD

Cons: I can't change the horn
