Great used car. One of the best have driven. Comfort is key and I have found it

2005 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

My Rav4, being a 2005 lacks the option for your front lights to automatically turn off once car is turned off.. I have to always manually do so. If I accidentally turns it on in the day I might forget and leave it running all night. The seats are comfortable and all amenities work perfect. I do notice though that the car takes awhile to gain momentum/ speed

The very best new car purchase ever.

2005 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

I love my car, and it has been the best purchase I have made with a new car. It is quiet, a smooth drive, and has been very reliable. The only problem I have had is with the wheel cover on the spare--it wouldn't come off! No big deal... I cut it off to use the tire, and all is fine now. I'd buy another rav-4 in a heartbeat.

Dependability and reliability of a 2005 Toyota rav4.

2005 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

It does okay on gas. Depends how much driving you do. With gas prices now about 20 dollars to fill up. So far no problems with it. Doing good for 14 years. Interior holds up good. It is comfortable for long road trips. So far if is a very reliable car, as long as you keep up with maintenance.

RAV4 review by Dominick Lanzetta

2005 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto (Natl)

None that I can think of my car runs great. I'd say the only minor issue would be the brakes aren't as tight as I'd like but that's just due to the age of the car. Otherwise the car handles, performs, and drives just fine to my liking. It's a good fit for me all and all
