Toyota Rav4: Reliable & Sturdy

Love the feel. One of the things I want most in a car is comfortability and it's perfect for driving since we take passengers a lot. It's also such a sturdy car and it feels smooth and safe. The features are nothing fancy but it has everything needed, everything works great despite the fact that we bought it used. I was surprised by how great shape the car was. Another important thing is mileage and durability. I feel like I can take long road trips in the car and it can handle it. We haven't ever really had major problems with the car apart from general wear and tear which is fantastic. What I want out of a car in this age isn't necessarily something fancy, but instead something that is reliable and sturdy.

Perfect for everyday commute with great handling and ample space.

My 2009 rav4 is a great vehicle. It has everything I need and want in a vehicle. I am single with no children and do not transport other people, so I often keep the second row seating folded down, creating a large trunk space. It has ample room for my hockey equipment, gym bag, groceries, and more. Living in New England, this vehicle handles well in the snow with the 4-wheel-drive option. However, I did not realize before purchasing that the 4wd option automatically shuts off if you drive above 20 mph. Despite this, it handles pretty well in sleek conditions above 20 mph. Seating is very comfortable, visibility is great, and the overall feel of the drive is smooth. Great little SUV!

Amazing car great gas mileage, perfect for a small family.

I absolutely love my Toyota RAV4! It seats 5 with the option of adding extra seating in the rear. Has a under compartment storage and a spacious trunk for storage. Come with roof racks. Very comfortable seating, has a sunroof. Gets decent gas mileage. I believe we get about 28 mpg on highway. It a great vehicle for everyday commute, going to work, picking up kids, daily outings. We even traveled 4000 miles on a vacation and never had any problem with it. Since owning our RAV4 tgd only thing we've had it replaced was the alternator and the windshield. Over all it is a great vehicle and I would definitely buy another if something happens to this one.
