"Handles well. 6 cylinder great for mountains,Winter and
passing. 4 cylinder ONLY for in town. brakes are great and
Plenty of space inside for semi-large items. I've put a dresser in mine,trees from the nursery, you can get an optional third seat if you need it. RAV/4 is popular,dependable and has terrific fit and finish.
Would I purchase another ? Probably. Purchased it brand new
but the new tires that were on it and the battery were
garbage. Get better rubber and battery. I've a cloth interior
and don't stick to the seats - when its over ninety degrees
you'll stick to leather and be uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very reliable, low cost to operate, gas milage"
Cons: "rear door opens to the right"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This is my second RAV 4. The first was a 2008 V4 that was trouble free for 196,000 miles. I was very pleased at the trade in value when I traded it for the 2011. Both have been extremely reliable and I have no grounds to complain. My current RAV 4 has the V6 and I do like the extra power. My only dislike is the read door opening to the right instead of the left. It makes sense in Japan but not the US."
Cons: "Uncomfortable Ride, unimpressive gas mileage"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6
"Very jittery ride, poor gas mileage
Extremely well made vehicle, good performance and reliability is unquestionable
Never had any issue so far-mechanical or electrical
Overall very stylish car. Still stands out on the road even after 6 years.
Bit impractical model-expensive, runs on RFT (run flat tires). RFTs are pain-no mileage rating and quite pricey.
Can't say I wouldn't recommend it to a friend. Newer RAV4s are nice and do not have the 5th tire jutting out. It was not in 2010."
"This car is basically like having a truck, except you can pretty much fit anything on the inside after putting the seats down AND it won't get wet if it rains! Also, this car has incredible durability & drives great on almost any terrain. You can even add an entire extra row of seating in the "trunk" (hatchback) if needed! And the sound system is incredible!"
