2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport V6 4WDReview

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

Great Car For The Money And As An Entry Level Suv. — The acceleration of this car with a V6 is great. The transmission shifts smoothly and ride is a bit stiffer than the two wheel drive version. The car handles very well and brakes are excellent. The car is an excellent commuter vehicle with the handling, ride, and fuel economy. Being a Toyota, the car requires little maintenance except for normal servicing.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Being a Toyota the car requires very little maintenance.  The build quality is good and is fairly comfortable on trips.  It accommodates four adults  easily with reasonable cargo space.

Cons: The car has a narrow track which does cause it to roll a bit at highway speeds.  The body styling leaves a bit to be desired. The new delivery tires have a very short life.

I love the way it handles in the snow and off road. I can turn off the traction control and make my own tracks in the deep snow, which has gotten me around in the winter when we had 3+ feet of snow. Also, it has great power, for a little suv, as far as passing other cars when you need to step on it a bit. The only issue I have had with it thus far is I wish it had a 3rd row seat option.
