Overall a very good and reliable car that I would recommend.

There have been no problems with my vehicle other than the air conditioning no longer works. It have very good performance besides the lack of a working air conditioning. It is a very reliable vehicle and I would certainly recommend it. I use it to drive to work and have also driven on longer day trips with no issues. It is a comfortable vehicle with space for a driver and four passengers. The trunk is not super big, but the seats can be folded down to make room as needed. Over all a very good and reliable car that I would highly recommend.

My vehicle is almost 20 years old, and it is in good shape for a car that old.

Currently I own a 2001 Toyota RAV4, and it is okay. When I got it, the car had over 180, 000 miles, which is to be expected due to its age. However, the mileage is a major concern for me, which makes me think that I will not have the car for as long as I need to before getting a new car--which stinks because I drive far. Also, when it is in park or when my foot is on the brake, it makes weird noises and "jumps". I like it because it gets me from A to B, but at the same time, the mileage and weird car noises is of concern.

It looks tiny on the outside but can fit so much comfortably on the inside.

I love my RAV4! I am he second owner on the vehicle with just about 200, 000 miles on it. Over the years there have been few major mechanical issues with it over the years. It is has been a reliable commuter car for work as well as road trips across country. I can comfortably fit anything I need to go mountain biking, paddle boarding, hiking or camping with plenty of space for my two large dogs! I love this car!
