"I've really enjoyed this car. It is small enough to fit in compact spaces, yet large enough to make a camping trip. Rear seats are removable for extra cargo room. The gas mileage is decent considering it is 4WD. I've had very few issues over the 10 years I've had it. If only they hadn't made changes to it, I would buy it again without bothering to look at other vehicles."
Cons: "4-spd auto needs another gear, just medium comfort"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"My 2005 RAV is a wonderfully useful car, particularly for around-town driving. It is easy to see out of, peppy (2.4L engine) and super-maneuverable. We have had no problems with it....not a single repair! While I wouldn't consider it a great long-distance touring car, we have others for that, but prefer the RAV most of the time.
Expect to keep it for many years to come."
