"Drives great, a little uncomfortable on long trips. Great for whipping around town. Great on gas mileage. Only one thing, there are 4- 0 2 sensors and when the engine light comes on...even the dealership can't identify which of the sensors is messed up. I just replaced 2 and the engine light is still on. Between the service man and myself, we decided not to replace the other one at $200.00 part cost. That replacing it did not affect the performance of the car. So we are going to wait another year. Service said he's seen one 4 cylinder with 4 sensors. And that would be mine. Ha..."
"Having owned more than twenty vehicles in my lifetime so far, I have to say that the most value for a vehicle was delivered by a Japanese make of car. The two Toyota's were both well worth the investment from almost every aspect of quality and the RAV 4 was the slightly better of the two."
"Value for your money in style, performance and comfort. I own this SUV for past 5 years and never had any problems till date. Just did oil changes regularly and company recommended service jobs twice."
"This vehicle has never let me down, has only needed one repair, has only had front brakes (no rotors, just pads) once at 49,000, never had rears yet, goes through the rain and snow like a champ. Not the fastest vehicle I have ever had but has the turning radius of a go cart....lol. I can do U-turns like nobody else, I love it!"
"This is a great small SUV. The back is large and the seats lay down for extra room when transporting large objects. I really do not have one complaint about this vehicle! I have not had one problem with it and have owned it for over 3 years."
"I purchased this from a private party, and I couldnt have made any better decision than that. This car has not given me or the one previous owner any issues whatsoever. Hats off to this model. I may be a Toyota Rav4 customer the rest of my life now!!"
"I have owned many vehicles of all types and this little SUV is by far my favorite. I love pretty much everything about it except, perhaps, the seats. I have owned mine for six years and the comfort for shorter trips is fine, but for longer trips I think it falls short. Luckilly, I don't take many long driving trips. Overall I am very happy with it and have not regretted buying it."
"Love this car, bought the 02 new and have had it ever since. Seats can be a bit stiff on long rides and it annoys me there is only one speed for the wipers but other than those two minor issues I love this car as much now as I did when I bought it. No major repairs can't even tell you how the dealership is b/c I just didn't have to deal with them!!!"
"This has been an excellent car for us. Absolutely no repairs needed (Except that one piece flew off the roof rack as we left the dealer's lot. They fixed it.) This car is 100% reliable. We chose it because it gets good gas mileage, so our gasoline bills are low. Because the rear seats can be folded or removed, it is adequate to handle our occasional trip to home depot. In fact, when we needed a new bathtub, I had them load the bathtub on top of the Rav 4 and drove it 15 miles home. No problem! This car is cute, but not tremendously stylish. My one complaint it that the driver's headrest is not quite right. However, I"m willing to overlook that because this is such a good car. And it makes up for the headrest problem by having a cute gadget to adjust the seatbelt so it doesn't cut into your neck. I'll miss that on my next car!"
"A nice higher profile vehicle that looks very good. I have the sport package with the sun roof. Only problem is, and I have found this with other Toyotas, that it is not the greatest vehicle in snow. Of course we had a record of over 100 inches of snow this year. It will usually get you where you want to go, but slips and slides a lot along the way. The regular ride is a little rougher than a car but you can get used to it. Overall, I like it, especially in the warmer months!"
"I found such a great deal on my Rav4. I would not trade it in for anything... it runs great, looks awesome, and is more reliable than any car I've ever had. Once you go Toyota--- you won't go back! Give this car a shot and you will not regret it :-)"
"I just bought my RAV4 used and I have to say its the best vehicle I think I have ever owned its comfy, drives nice and is pretty good on gas. It is a very attractive vehicle also. This is my first Toyota and I think I might just be a die hard Toyota fan from now on"
