"I love my 1997 Rav4, a 2 door. I bought it used in 2000 with around 13,000 miles. I still have the vehicle now(2008) and it has 168,000 miles. I have had no major problems with this car. The only repair I have had to do was the timing belt but other than that it's been working fine, super reliable. Gas mileage is great as well! This is definitely not a family car; there's very little room in the back--children can fit comfortably though. It's a great buy for a single person!"
"I bought this car when i turned 15 as my first car i thought it looked kinda funky but it was a vehical! I drove it into the ground and it still has a good kick to it now I'm in the Navy and still dragging it with me where ever i go!!!"
"I recieved my Rav4 as an 18 birthday present. It has been in my family since 1998 we we bought it with under 10k on it and it is still running in pretty good shape and it now has 202k miles on it and still going strong. Though it may not have the power some may seek it is one of the best cars to get from point A to point B and back."
