Toyota RAV4: Comfortable, reliable, and always ready for adventure!

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

My 2010 Toyota RAV4 is by far the best car I have owned to this day! It is fuel efficient, stylish and the perfect car for adventures or bringing the kids to school. There is plenty of legroom for not only the driver and passenger, but the back seat as well. I really enjoy the amount of trunk space, as it is perfect for packing for a trip or vacation. In Minnesota, the icy roads in the winter are unavoidable. Thankfully, the 4-wheel drive and traction monitor has saved my life several times in blizzard conditions. When the tires begin to lose traction, there is a light that flashes and beeps to warn you. The sound system is also great, I always get compliments from friends on how heavy you can make the bass, and the volume of the music. Most importantly, it can be driven anywhere! Through mud, gravel, deep puddles, and rocky terrain. My RAV4 has always been reliable, and has never given out on me since I bought it!

Beware of the Toyota rav4.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

My Toyota rav4 has not been the best vehicle. I had a corolla that I loved but I wrecked it. Since Toyota is suppose to be very good vehicles I decided to stay with them. Well, the radio had to be replaced. It would cut off when you changed the station. Sometimes the CD player works and sometimes it doesn't. It's been about 4 years since it's been replaced and it's doing the same thing again. I think it's some sort of electrical problem. It's had several recalls on it. Down to the rear suspension. Some part in the motor quit working. It is also rusting really bad. I've never had a vehicle do that. The paint on the hood and the front has bubbled and peeled and now its rusting. I am very disappointed with this vehicle.

Great family vehicle with lots of space and is very user friendly

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

I really think the 2010 Toyota rav4 is great to drive. I have 2 kids and this works well for us. I'm disappointed that if I had another child I would have to upgrade my vehicle because this vehicle cannot have more than one kid in a car seat. The Toyota RAV4 has great cargo space and you can put the seats down to give you more room if you need to. I live in New England and find this vehicle to do very well in the snow.

- Ashley T

The rav4 is the perfect starter SUV.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

I bought the car used with a little over 100,000 miles on it. I have been driving it for around a year now and I have not had any major issues with it at all. Only issue was a worn out tire cap which caused air to leak out of the tire, but that is a pretty common and easily fixed problem with most cars. The gas mileage is outstanding and I plan on getting at least another 100,000 miles out of it.

- Josh S

Smaller SUV with lots of space.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

I love my rav4. It is the perfect size to haul large bags of grain and other things for my horse. It is got a lot of legroom which is great since my fiance is 6 foot tall. It also has a great size back seat and room in the hatch for my dog to sit when we go to the park. The car drives really nice and does great on gravel and uneven roads. I have not had any problems with it.

- Audrey C

Very liability. Last as long as you take care of it. Do the normal maintenance.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

I love how reliable it is and haven't had any problems with it since I have bought it. Only thing I have done is put tires on it and do normal oil and maintenance. I have always loved my Toyota and they go forever. As long as you take care of it. Just wish the vehicle had more room when you have car seats in back you can only get two back there.

- Trish L

Great Family Vehicle, Would Recommend

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Vehicle is reliable and easy to maintain. Have had no major issues in the brief time we have owned it, just minor cosmetic repairs. Car has 120,000 miles on it and very few previous owners. Good on gas, easy to drive, and spacious enough for packing full of furniture or putting the family in. It's our family vehicle and an adequate one.

- Lauren A

A rav4 is a great family vehicle.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

My favorite thing about this vehicle is it is size. It comfortably fits my family of four and has a good amount of storage space. The seats fold down easily for extra cargo. The only problems we have had with it is normal wear and tear type repairs. It does not have much in the way of fancy features which I think is great.

- Rebecca B

Great, Dependable, Economical Vehicle at a Reasonable Price

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Bought the car new in 2010. Have only ever had to maintain with brakes, tires, one air filter and of course oil changes which honestly have not been on a regular basis. Most times I have gone way over mileage until the next oil change. The vehicle now has almost 190,000k miles. Has pretty good gas mileage also.

- Christy S

The way the back door opens. It opens outward and not upward like newer models.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Dependable, reliable, performance has been great beside the normal wear and tear or regular maintenance. The only problems were the manufacturer recalls, which were resolved by dealers with no issues. Then there are the occasional tire replacement. All functions of the vehicle are is working condition.

- cheryl M

Great vehicle for the money!

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

I like the RAV4 because it has been a reliable car. It drives like a sedan, but with more space like an SUV. I recommend the V6 option for its get-up-and-go power. The gas mileage is decent. It's been a good car for long car trips. It's also much more affordable than a lot of the other Toyota options.

- Sara W

My vehicle is a black rav4 it has gray fabric seats. It's super comfortable!

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

My rav4 is awesome the interior is super comfortable with gray fabric seats. The heating and cooling has always worked perfect. I've never had a problem with its function. I will say though that my auxiliary doesn't work and my radio glitches sometimes but other than that I've really had no problems.

- Cheyenne M

Great car. Meets all of my needs for commuting and travel for the price.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

The 2010 Toyota RAV4 proves to be the perfect vehicle for my needs in SOCAL. It has plenty of power and speed for the freeway, incredible turning radius, not to mention comfort and storage capacity. My only complaint is the gas mileage is not that of a new car, and this car does not have AWD or 4WD.

- Adam L

A good choice for a touring musician.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Had some issues with the bearing assemblies, but it's been steady and reliable for a few years now. Plenty of room for my music equipment, very roomy and comfortable ride. I've put about 60k miles on it since I bought it in 2013. It's crossed the country multiple times and is still running strong.

- Harvey H

Rav4: simple yet reliable.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

My rav4 has zero bells and whistles and has been my absolute favorite car. It's paid off and I have had to put no money into it other than oil changes, tire rotation and standard car upkeep. There's nothing fancy about my car but if I had to do it over I would get the exact same car again.

- Brooke P

Reliable and great for a commuter

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

It's very reliable, decent gas mileage. Hasn't had any problems that I've seen so far. It's very spacious and comfortable, can fit a lot of seats. It runs smoothly. It doesn't have a lot of luxury or safety features to it but it has everything that is necessary for a good car I feel.

- Evan S

Sure-footed ride that is just right.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

I love my rav... And so would goldilocks. It is not too big but not too small. Comfortable and reliable. Sure-footed in all kinds of weather. Peppy 4-cylinder engine that gets good gas mileage. Spacious interior. Rear seats fold down for hauling large items. I would change nothing.

- Jen E

Power windows. CD player. Lots of cargo space.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

2010 Toyota rav4, base model black. Have had it 9 years myself. 105,000 miles. Have had to do only minimal work to it. Tires, brakes, rotors, alternator. Has always gotten me through those New England winters even without 4 wheel drive. Very reliable and plenty of cargo storage.

- Robert L

Very reliable vehicle to drive.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

It has been very reliable. We have driven it to Florida twice with no issues. We use this vehicle for everything. It is very comfortable and easy to drive. We get very good gas mileage. We have only had to perform general maintenance and tires. Would recommend one to anyone.

- Charles B

Find out all my dislikes as well as all of the things that I do like.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Oil filter housing breaks too easy, plus a lot of recalls on it. Everything from window switch catching fire to braking system failure. It does perform rather well overall. Oil change is rather easy to do it yourself. Leather seats are still uncomfortable after 19 years.

- Luis G

I love her! Can't really go wrong with a Toyota!

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

This is a great car and I would buy it all over again! The only downside is that they are so common. I hope in the future they change the body style a little. I've never had any big problems with it other than a couple recalls. Toyota is a great brand, very trustworthy.

- Sarah W

Good vehicle even with age

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Our 2010 rav4 has a windshield wiper recall. But that is the only issue I have had with it. I would definitely recommend the rav4, but maybe one that isn't almost 10 years old. It needs a few fixes here and there but it is still, with it 9 years, a very good car!

- Sabrina B

Comfy, reliable car. Great for families!

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

It's comfortable, reliable, has an extra seat in the back even though it's not a big car. It hasn't needed almost any work over the last 4 years even though it's second hand. It's not fancy but it feels safe and it fits everything we need for a family of four

- Kylie D

Toyota rav4 best vehicle I had.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

Toyota rav4 I have and so far I see no problem in the vehicle. I am happy with my vehicle. I would advise anyone to buy this vehicle. Toyota is a good choice. I have been driving Toyota since 2010 and have no issue. I can advise anyone to buy this vehicle.

- Indie K

The Rav4 is a Reliable Favorite

2010 Toyota RAV4 Base

My RAV4 is really reliable. I live in Minnesota and winters are extremely tough on cars, but I've never had any winter-related issues. One of my favorite features is how quickly the car accelerates. The interior is nothing special, but is comfortable.
