The Vehicle for a modern day Adventure

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

I love my Rav4, of all the cars I have owned or driven it is by far my favorite. It seats 5 people comfortably and has plenty of room in the trunk for me to store things that I use to go on adventures. It truly is the adventurers vehicle, it drives smooth and is so compact I often feel like I'm driving a go-cart. The only problem I've encountered with my Rav4 is that the car alarm goes off when I open my doors, not every time but about a third of the time. I still haven't found a solution to this problem and it's quite annoying. But, nevertheless, I still love my Rav4 and plan on driving her 'til she dies.

Why we love our Toyota. Take care of your car and even older cars can last.

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

No problems. Good size and comfortable seating and room. The interior is black with gray cloth seating. It seats 5 people. The outside is silver with a truck door that opens to the side instead of up. . This is a relatable car. If you take care of it and get regular oil change, filter change, tire rotation, and everything else you should do with your car, this car could last you a very long time.

Toyota Rav4 is great for someone who needs to do a lot of driving

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

It gets great gas mileage. I've had it for years and it rarely has problems. I feel very safe in the vehicle, and it never feels unstable or like it could tip over. The car is old, but it doesn't look outdated. It is a small car, so it works for a single person, but I would not recommend for a family or for kids.

Compact and Reliable, yet Bigger than First Glance.

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

The car was bought used and since then has had no major mechanical issues with over 200,000 miles. It is a nice mid sized SUV that has the ability to haul large things if needed. Is small enough with good gas mileage to be an everyday vehicle but also large enough to accommodate large moves.

Great reliability and the perfect size.

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

My rav4 has always been reliable. The only repairs that have been needed are from normal aging of the car. It is the perfect size for me and my 2 dogs. I do not like to drive large SUVs and although I loved my first car which was a corolla, I love how the rav4 is the perfect in-between.

Comfortable Size Easy On Gad

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

It's very dependable. It's not too small and not too big. It hides wee. It's easy on gas. The maintenance is easy to keep up. It drives well in all sorts of weather. It's very comfortable for children and for adults. It's very spacious. It's big enough if you need to haul something.

- Diane D

It's got plenty of room. It looks smaller than it actually is.

2004 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

I like the car, just wish it had more features. We got the base model. Also, there is a problem when you put the car in reverse. It makes a noise and shakes the car. Not sure if this is an issue with all models for this year, or I have transmission problems.
