Only Toyota for me from here on out. Die hard in love with them because of my Rav4.

For gas mileage savings, ease of driving, and space, this is the best four cylinder vehicle I have ever driven. I bought it used and replaced the brakes, which was just as easy as with my other vehicles. It works great with cheap or expensive off road tires, and you can fit a ton of home improvement stuff in it. There is enough room inside to camp, and enough fuel efficiency to go far on vacation. I literally fell in love with Toyota vehicles because of this baby, and am never going back. I also found out they are one of the few manufacturers giving Americans jobs here in the US, and are a great company to work for. Sold, sold, and more sold. Love my toy!

Toyota rav4, not to big- not too small. Just right!

It is reliable transportation, gas mileage is great. It's a cheaper version of an SUV. We are happy. It's not too big, nor too small. The engine runs good. We have not had any real problems with this vehicle. I would definitely recommend a Toyota RAV4 4 to someone living in the mountains as well as a student who drives back and forth to college. It's great for travel. Small enough to buzz around in the city, yet still good enough for rough terrain, camping, etc. I absolutely love my Toyota RAV4 4. I will always buy Toyota.

Reliable car! Solid car!

The car runs really well, we bought it for like $3, 000 from an auction. It has never broken down, it is actually a really nice car. It is just old. But it works amazing in snow, sand, hills, etc. It just feels like such a nice and solid, good car. Very reliable. One window does not go up or down anymore so it is stuck being closed (the drive thru window:( ) seats are not super comfortable, but you get used to them. They're not too horrible. Otherwise, I would 100% recommend it. It is a great car.
