Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"The size is perfect for me - I can get 5 in if I need too, and I can fit almost any large item (furniture, etc). I like the side opening back door the best, and having an actual, real spare tire. It rides well in all kinds of weather. Plenty of cupholders and storage in the front and back seats, plus extra hidden storage in the back - perfect if you want to leave your purse and go for a jog! Two negatives are first, the ergonomics. It is literally impossible to get both the legs and the arms at the right length to the steering wheel and pedals and be comfortable. Driving long distances I have to bring pillows and take ibuprofen for the aches. Its a hard car for commuting any distance. Second, the car has bad blind spots on both sides. Fixable when I attached small round mirrors to both side mirrors. Everything else I love about the car."

Very good value. Good utility car.

Pros: "Love the visability, ease of lowering 2nd row seat"

Cons: "Noisy inside. Needs 6 cylinder"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"I would buy another today, but they stopped making 6 cylinder. Drove the new 2014 RAV4 with a 4, and it was boring to drive and sounded noisy when I tried to accelerate."

A loud and uncomfortable driving experience

Pros: "looks nice on the outside, good acceleration"

Cons: "loud, rattles, squeaks, outdated"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"This could have been a great car, but some issues keep it from even coming close. For one, this is the loudest car I've ever owned. It rattles, creaks, and squeaks like no other. On a typical drive I'll hear rattles from the sunroof, dashboard, some random panels on the drivers side, and the cargo area. The breaks make a grinding noise every morning when I depress the pedal. Some of the noises are so loud it makes the driving experience miserable, especially for a 2011 model. If you're considering one of these, I highly suggest driving with the stereo off so you can hear for yourself. I'll likely never buy a Toyota again after this experience. I've driven 15 year old cars quieter than this."

Awesome - except for those pesky recalls
