Would you recommend this vehicle?

(Select your rating)

I do not like the car at all really the only nice thing is the space.

I would not recommend this car to anyone that I know. I got the car from a family member. Had no problems and then all of a sudden when pulling out after a stop sign my engine revs super high like 5, 000 rpms before shifting into gear. It is extremely slow when trying to gain speed it literally will sit at about 2, 000 rpms and if you give it anymore gas it shoots up to nearly 4, 000. The more I have this car the more I wish I didn't own it. Very unsatisfied with it overall. The only thing this car has going for it is that it is spacious and has room to store stuff. I also enjoy the mere fact that if I wanted to pull a trailer I could which is a nice thing to be able to do when needed. I would not recommend this car to anyone that I know.

Reliable and comfortable affordable SUV

The only problem I have with my rav4 and I really can't complain because this car has been so reliable. It has 172 thousand miles and I have out on the last 15 thousand and the only money I have put into the car is regular maintenance. Now the only problem is the auto lock when you hit the button to lock all 4 doors the driver side you must do manually. I bought these electronic locks for your keychain and because of that problem I can't sync them so they are useless. I bought the car this way and was fully aware of it before I purchased. All I really care about is it good on gas and will it break down. Its fair on gas a super reliable

Rav4 Toyota Roomy, good on gas, comfortable

I love my Toyota Rav4. I've had it for about 7yrs and never has given me any problems. The only one major problem I had was replacing the Clutch kit. It has been a super car for me. It has been good on has when I have traveled. And is very roomy inside. It seats 5 adults and still has lots of room in the back for luggage. I love the style it has and would get the same car if I had to get another updated year of course.
