Reliable, Trustworthy and Safe for the Family

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

When I purchased this vehicle brand new in 2009, it was top notch and the features that came with it were pretty normal for a smaller SUV. The size is perfect enough for a family of 2 adults, small child and 2 dogs. 10 years later I still feel safe in this vehicle and have only had minor repairs needed. There have been some recalls for various aspects, but all have been addressed and didn't alter my opinion. This vehicle isn't made to be the fastest as it is a 4 cylinder; however, I didn't purchase it for the speed, I cared more for the MPG to which it is above average I believe based on a smaller SUV.

Rav4 is great for dogs and kids.

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

The rav4 has been the perfect car for our 3 dogs and now our 2 children. We wanted a smaller SUV that could fit dogs in the back and have room for camping gear. Now that we have children we are able to still fit everyone in the car. Installing car seats was a bit tough using the bar under the seat but once we got them latched they are very secure. Having cup holders in the back that would be more accessible to our children would be helpful. We also have the sport version and the run flat tires did not last long before we had to replace. Overall a great car no major issues!

Sometimes dependable and sometimes not.

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

Car runs a bit noisy. Very hard to hear the radio. Hard to hear the music on radio sometimes, because radio system is standard, and cannot raise the treble high enough for clarity. Do like the look of it. However, the ride is not the smoothest. The car has been reliable for the most part, until the most recent problem with the gas gauge that just quit, and I ran out of gas on a major highway. Then next day, the gauge worked just fine. No reason for it working again, and mechanic recommended that it not be repaired until started acting up again.

Living is easy with the RAV4

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

I live in an area with hilly narrow roads, with snowy winters. The Toyota RAV4 handles so well in these conditions. I also have a steep driveway, and snowy conditions are not a problem. We also used this car to move my son into college. There is plenty of space and storage that getting him set up in one trip went well.

Awesome versatile and long lasting car

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

The Toyota RAV4 has been a very versatile car. I have been able to drive long distances and carry a lot in the trunk for the trips that I go on. I have never had a problem with the engine and I currently have 230,000 miles accumulated. The car still runs like the day I bought it. I am a huge fan of the Toyota RAV4

Great back door for tailgating!

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

I had an issue with my air pressure indicator light, but it was an easy fix by my mechanic. I really like having a skylight as my last car didn't have one. I also like having the option to lock the windows as my niece and nephew enjoy putting them down when they're in my car.

Great reliable vehicle perfect for travel

2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

I have had this car for 9 years and it is the most reliable vehicle. The only problem I have ever had is that I have had to replace the battery once. It has been great for me. Great travel car! Full of great storage space and a great commuter car with decent mileage
