Reliable car, long-lasting life span

This car has lasted almost fifteen years and has been (for the most part) reliable. Our budget hasn't allowed us to keep it up as well as we'd like, but the issues we've encountered have been more involved in brake pad and suspension performance deteriorating, as well as some engine issues. The mechanics have told us that without doing thousands of work in replacements and repairs, we probably have one or two years left to use it, but even so, it's lasted longer than the Subaru of the same year that recently died, and Subaru is notoriously a reliable company for long lasting cars. Overall I'd say this car has done really well.

Toyota rav4 is reliable for years.

The main problem with this car is random parts break down suddenly. It is more than 10 years old, though, so it is understandable that it is not as reliable as it used to be, but it makes it difficult to use. The seats are comfortable and spaced well enough apart from each other, and when there are no issues with parts, the car is reliable and can be driven for miles on end. It has lasted a very long time with only minor repairs, like windshield replacements and a few battery replacements, so it is overall a good car.

This car is reliable and functional, but very much a mom-mobile. It's not stylish, but it will get you from A to B.

Overall, it has been a good car. We got it when I was 16 as a hand-me-down from my grandparents. I am currently 24 and it's still kicking! I have had a transmission issue in the past, but that has been the biggest issue. I also had to get the emissions system serviced recently, but this car is over 10 years old. It is a very reliable car. I wish the backseat was larger, though. It's very cramped if you put more than one person back there. Overall, this has been a good car and I will drive it into the ground.
