I love my RAV4. My honest review:

The Toyota RAV4 I drive is pretty reliable. It gets good gas mileage which is convenient when going on long road trips. As the driver, I find the car comfortable. However, passengers have informed me the backseat is not comfortable. It is difficult getting the back seats at a comfortable angle. I have had my Rav for a few years and have not had any major maintenance issues. One of the O2 sensors broke a few months ago and that was a bit expensive to get repaired. And a few weeks ago my alternator broke, which then drained my battery. That was also an expensive repair. I try to take care of my car and have had pretty good results. I have a little over 119,000 miles on my car and it still performs well. I make long distance drives often (over 1000 miles) and find the car does great. I do not yet have children but can see that it would be helpful for those with children. The backseat is spacious and the car has good safety features. There is also really awesome storage space. There is room in the floor of the trunk and the seats fold down for more room. I moved into college and then into a house using my Rav and it was great getting everything to fit. I also have features to hide items in the backseat which is comforting when shopping or when my car is parked for an extended period of time.

It's spacious, dependable and smooth to drive

I have had my current car for about 8 years. It was used when I got it and I have had very few issues aside from the normal wear and tear with vehicles (battery life and alternator) my car drives very nicely, it's not a 4 wheel drive which I do miss in the snow as traction is not as good as my previous vehicle. The gas mileage is pretty decent. I can't speak much to the interior features of the car in a newer model but my make has all my basic needs. I can plug an aux cord in to listen to music and there is a port for an iPod inside the glove compartment which could probably used for a phone with the appropriate adapter as well. One thing I love is the storage space. The trunk has lots of room for storage and you can comfortably for passengers in the back without feeling squished. I am currently using my vehicle to teach my younger cousin to drive. I probably wouldn't have noticed otherwise but it is pretty user friendly for new drivers or those not familiar with the car. Turn signals and wipers are clearly labeled and easy to navigate as are the hazard and high beam lights. Overall this car has served me well in the nearly decade I have owned it.

Great car with one minor inconvenience.

The rav4 has plenty of space for people. The back seats can be lowered if you need extra storage or if you are like me and want your animals to have plenty of space. The four doors make it easy to get people and things in and out of the vehicle. It runs very well and I expect it to last a long time as long as I continue the basic maintenance on it. The only problem I have had with it so far is a covering that came on top of the engine. When the oil gets changed if the workers are careless they get oil in this covering causing it to drip down the engine. Because of this dripping I have been warned three different times that my oil is leaking. There is no leak and I have had them remove the covering because it serves no purpose. I would recommend removing it as well if your rav4 comes with one.
