"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"
"It's small to fit into tight parking spaces, has 4wd and has a lot of cargo space when you take the rear seats out. Front seats are comfy for long drives. The manual transmission is slick, the exception being the 1-2 shift. Engine gets a little buzzy at freeway speeds, but overall a fun car to drive!"
