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.
