"Economical SUV , reliable with Toyota's solid reputation. Good handling car in the snow & ice conditions. After a few upfront repair costs to vehicle CPU computer and some front end work, there has been no major repair costs except for the usual ( oil/lube, brakes, coolant etc). The only downside is the lack of power the 2.0 litre engine produces, especially uphill and when passing on the highway. The newer RAV 4 models remedied this with bigger sized engine and horsepower rating. Ensure you stick to regular maintenance and keep all fluid changes current. For those that live in snow belts or salty environments, undercoating is a must if you want the vehicle to last. "


Sporty design along with good visability.


Good heating and cooling system. The Limited edition comes with leather seats. The stereo system is not as good as later models of the RAV 4.
Family Friendliness


Cost Effectiveness


The repair costs are much less than other models of the same category. I was always a Honda guy, however, I've calculated that the RAV4 was much less costly to repair and keep regular maintenance than the Honda CRV. This led me to purchase a newer 2008 RAV4 later.


The 2.0 litre engine is good around town, however, lacks power going up hill and when passing on the highway. Great handling in ice and snow conditions with the All wheel drive model. Reliability is very good as long as regular maintenance and lubrication schedules are adhered to.

"Car had low mileage for its age and had been very well maintained. We immediately took it on a 2,000-mile trip and it ran great all the way."
