Do not underestimate the size!

This is not a large vehicle, but there are lots of hidden functions that add extra space. The back seats fold down completely, adding lots of room to transport large materials if need be. We also have used this function when camping. Having the ability to sleep in the back of our vehicle. A definite plus for outdoor enthusiasts. There is a storage compartment in the back of the vehicle under the hatch. Lots of extra space for storage that we have used when traveling. The perfect spot for all of those small pesky items you have nowhere to store. The vehicle handles really well in all weather conditions with the all-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive low functions. I have directly experienced this vehicle in the snow in the mountains of colorado, the rain in pennsylvania, and off-road terrain all across the country. This vehicle has out done my expectations every time. I love this vehicle and plan to own it for as long as it runs.

2011 Toyota RAV4 LTD - Fun to drive

I really like this car. I bought it used in June 2017 and have had no problems with it. For me, I love the way it rides, handles, and accelerates. It was the 2.5 4cy and I think it accelerates fine and gets decent gas mileage. The road noise is a little loud but I prefer it that way because I prefer a vehicle that won't put me to sleep. Sometimes there is a popping noise coming from driver's side but the vehicle has checked and rechecked with no obvious safety issues. I've read other reviews and a pro's review; this is apparently a trait of 2011 RAV4s. I love the smart key system. There's no way to lock the fob in the car, as the doors will not lock if you accidentally leave it in the vehicle. My biggest con is the locks cannot be programmed to automatically lock once you start driving. There is some ODB gadget available from China that will auto lock the back doors only but that is not a remedy in my opinion. Thank you.

Older rav4 radio & speaker frustrations.

The Toyota 2012 rav4 is a great car with lots of space! I travel a lot and it is perfect for road trips and moving. It is very comfortable. It has heated seats, leather seats, and a sky roof! The only thing that I wish I would have known before I bought it is that it does not get the best gas mileage. Besides that, I have had little to no problems with it. My rav4 has 140,000 miles on it and it still runs like it is brand new! Because my car is an older model, I spent money to get a new radio with Bluetooth and new speakers because the speaker on the passenger side blew out and my phone does not have a aux cord plug in. That was quite frustrating but that is expected for an older car! The car is very reliable and I love it!!

Rear seats recline making it more comfortable for those passengers.

By far the best vehicle I have ever owned. I have the le which makes a big difference in what is on it. Has remote starter, keyless driving, keyless locking and unlocking of doors, leather sunroof which are all important to me. I do not like the backup camera on this model because it is in the mirror. I love the fact that the back seats can decline which I have never seen before. So much more comfortable for passengers in the back seat. Only drawback I find is the uncomfortable middle seat in the back. Only comfortable for 4 people. The rear seats fold down with the pull of a handle making it very handy for transporting a lot of big items. I will never buy another brand besides Toyota again.

- Susan D

2011 rav4 is sleek and has plenty of room great for road trips or everyday use.

I owned a highlander before my rav4. It was older, a 2002, but it was also a Toyota. It got totaled when a pick-up-truck hit the passenger side door, one night, where my mother was sitting. We both walked away completely fine, not even whiplash, and the airbags didn't have to deploy. This car, at the time, was over 15 years old. Having the 'smaller model' now, I like it more mine is a 2011, so it a fair bit newer than the 2002 highlander. I like the higher mile per gallon, the carrying capacity has not been an issue yet, and it looks sporty. On that note if there are any design/higher-ups reading this: bring back the rear mounted tire.

- Patrick C

Great value for the money.

Very smooth and comfortable ride. I love the room for both people and cargo. Plenty of storage compartments both in the rear and around the cab. Decent sound system. Can connect with my phone with a tether for streaming. Has been through 2 recalls. One for windshield wipers motor and another for seat belt connection but both were handled quickly and easily. This is the second rav 4 I have owned and I love it. Great for road trips. Handles mountain roads perfect. Does not feel as top heavy as older models. I also use it as my daily driver and have no problems driving through the skinny downtown streets in my city.

- Beverly L

The size of the trunk is really the best part of the whole car as it can fit quite a bit if you put down the back seats. The car is also not huge but not tiny either so if you are looking for a smaller crossover type vehicle then this would be a great fit.

It drives great but the air conditioning vents are only in the front so it is hot for passengers in the back. The middle counsel is short and not really an armrest so it is uncomfortable if you drive with your right hand. The Bluetooth is spotty and connect and disconnect frequently. The seats are light color fabric so stains are extremely noticeable. The middle seat in the rear is a tiny half seat that is not comfortable at all so really only seats 4 people comfortably. The trunk is huge and great for when we need to make long road trips or transport bulky items.

The Toyota RAV4 is a great vehicle!

My RAV4 is a pretty great small SUV, it has pretty good fuel economy. Its small enough that I don't feel like I am driving a tank but big enough that anyone riding in my car has leg room. It's easy to drive and has 4 wheel drive so I can get out of most situations like lots of snow or really rough terrain. My only drawback is that its a 4 cylinder and it shows because it can get moving quickly but after 60 it slows down and just takes a while to go any faster but other than that it's a great all around vehicle and if you get in an accident it is pretty good.

- Sean L

Great car for road trips in any weather.

The car has been super reliable. It works well for the 2 of us plus a large breed dog. It is also comfortable to have 3 people in the backseat. I like having the sunroof. The car handles quite well in the snow, which is paramount. We often drive on long road trips, and it is comfortable to be in for 8 plus hours on the road. The only real issue I have had with it is when purchasing new tires, it took 2 tries to get the alignment correct. This may be more of a function of the tire place and service.

- Marilyn D

It's reliable and I haven't had to put much money into it to keep it running.

I like that it's reliable, handles well & gets good gas mileage. It also has a large interior trunk which I can store lots of stuff. I don't like the spoiler on the back of the car, can't get the squeegee underneath it to clean it well. Also the cup holders. There just isn't quite enough space when you have a tall cub between that & the dash. Also they have an insert for smaller sized cups, you can take it out for larger items but they never seem to be the correct size.

- Kris J

It's reliable. It has never faltered and Toyota's are known to be good dependable vehicles as long as you take care of them.

The Rav4 is actually a good vehicle. It runs well, we've never had any big issues from it, and as long as you take care and keep up the maintenance on it it can last a long time. I wish it was slightly bigger so it could hold all 6 of us (6 member family), but it only seats 5. Ours doesn't have 4-wheel drive, but there is an option that you can get it on other models. Overall, I really like the car, although I wish the cargo space at times was just a bit bigger.

- Natalia C

Car and features are as advertised.

Engine rides well. There are no leaks, and not a lot of road noise. However, when taking long drives, the seats become a bit uncomfortable. They are hard, and my legs get sore from being in one position for an extended period of time. There is a compartment under the padding in the back to hold items (I keep rope, emergency gear, etc.). It is rather small, and it cannot be opened with much of anything in the rear of the car. (it is right behind the rear seats).

- Beverly B

2011 Toyota rav4, purchased used at 100,000 miles.

Unusual rattling sound between 2 and 3 rpm when I am accelerating between 30 and 40 mph. Overall a great car though, I bought it used at almost 100,000 miles and I have been driving it for several years with no issues. It is very comfortable and roomy, and I love the 4-wheel drive feature. I always turn off traction control though, I wish it was automatically off and needed to be turned on instead because I find it much easier to drive in the snow without it.

- Annie R

Good car and very reliable also safe.

I have not had any problems so far and I have had it a while. There was a hose issue but that was a simple fix. I feel this car is very reliable and I do like it. I have cloth seats and a sub roof, it is a 4x4. I do wish I had four wheel drive but it went amazing in the snow in Nc. It is pretty comfortable decent size back seat and good back space for luggage. I do not like the gray seats though I wish they were a different color. All in all I like my car.

- Misty C

Great vehicle reliability is a selling point.

The vehicle drives and handles well. However there is a known issue with the 4 wheel drive and I have had the light on and the 4 wheel drive intermittently won't work. Other than that this is a well built vehicle that can take a beating and keep going. I would recommend this vehicle for its reliability. My rav4 is at just over 115k miles and other than a couple of tires and a set of brake pads I have had to do almost nothing to keep it running well.

- Kelly S

Great car size for small families up to four people!

We love the height of the RAV4 vehicle. It is a perfect size to get in and out of for all ages (easy to put babies in their carseat and easy for elderly to get in and out without climbing up or leaning down). However, the length is short. Great for small families. Not good at all for more than 3 or 4 people at most. Back seat feels close to the front. Also you feel more car movement sitting in the back seats (which is bad if you get carsick)


If I were you I would worry about the Mileage, interior of the car, and trunk door.

The RAV4 2011 is one of the greatest cats I have ever had. The mileage is great and my car is still standing after 300,000 miles. The maintenance of my RAV4 is quite low. Although it is a great car it has some flaws, for example the Trunk door is annoying because it opens sideways. Opening sideways makes it awkward to open sometimes in the parking lot. Changing a light bulb is easy but getting to the light bulb is a pain in the butt.

- Ronald J

I like that it has places all over to clip the dog's seat belt.

Just got my RAV4 4 in April replacing and older one that I loved for 11 years. Perfect for the dog, bikes, kayak equipment, kids. No problems except you really have to watch the gutter in the sunroof. There are two little holes that need to be cleaned out so leaves do not prevent rain from draining to the ground. That caused an electrical issue that had to be dried out. But other than that, it is an awesome little car.

- Sharon L

This car is very reliable and saves you money on gas.

The car is very compact and great for travel. It also saves on gas. I also love my 6 CD changer because I love music. I have this car for about 2 years and have not had any major maintenance problems. This car always has comfortable seating for passengers in the back, and the seats recline so they can rest during travel if they want to. This car also have a very spacious trunk and I am so happy with my purchase.

- Vanessa R

It's a boring, but very dependable shucks to drive.

I like that my RAV4 has been a reliable vehicle. A dependable car is great. I dislike that it doesn't have enough legroom for tall people to ride comfortably for very long with passengers in the back seat. With our son in his car seat, my 6'2" husband isn't comfortable in the front. I dislike that it doesn't warn me when I accidentally leave my headlights on. I dislike that it is a boring vehicle.

- Elisa H

Good family car with slight problems with radio.

I love the size of my Toyota Rav4. It easily holds all of our things when we travel. It has a pretty good amount of legroom in the front and back seats. The only problem I've had with the car is the screen on the radio messes up sometimes and just shows crazy symbols instead of the correct information and sometimes the radio buttons do something different than they are supposed to when pressed.

- Stefani E

The RAV4 is very reliable and dependable. Despite road noise, would recommend.

The only thing that I really do not like about our Toyota RAV4 is that is has loud road noise. We love how spacious the back of the vehicle is once the back seats are put down. Overall we are very happy with both the RAV4’s reliability and comfort. Performance is great, especially since we have the v6 version. Only real complaint is the road noise and that is easy enough to overlook.

- Laurie F

Rav4 - comfortable ride, but no spare tire.

Toyota rav4 is a reliable and comfortable ride. The fold down seats are ideal for transporting large cargo. Four wheel drive provides a sense of safety when driving in winter conditions. One huge drawback is the lack of a spare tire due to the run flat tires. These tires are also very expensive to replace. If I had carefully thought about this, I would not have purchased this model.

- Victoria P

I love the spare tire on the back and the 6 CD changer!

I like the 2011 rav4 because it is great on gas mileage! I also love the trunk size and the untraditional way that the door closes. The spare tire on the back and the top rack gives the vehicle so much pizzazz! The car is reliable. The only setback is that the headlights are hard to find under replacement unless you go to the dealer; and it costs $300 per headlight housing assembly.

- Lisa Y

Runs great in the snow with the all wheel drive.

The one problem with the rav4 is the exhaust pipe is not positioned so that evaporation drains out so it rust through. I also am having to put a quart of oil in every month, not from leaks but engine use. The car has just the right amount of storage room for me. Another negative is the spare on the outside without the dealer supplying locking lug nuts. My tire and cover was stolen.

- Patricia J

RAV4 is great with some minor quirks.

This vehicle really is great, the biggest complaint I have is that there is a squeaking coming from the back that I cannot seem to find the source of. I've googled it and it is a common problem with the RAV4. I've had my vehicle almost a year and have had to replace the alternator, and my a/c fan I think is close to going out, but other than those issues, it's been a good vehicle.

- Courtney V

2011 rav4 with auxiliary port and removable cup holders!

My car runs really well, I have had it for a year and a half. Gas mileage is good. Seats are comfy. There is an auxiliary port which is nice. Lots of cup holders and the cup holders can be removed to fit bigger drinks on there. My only complaint is how to open the gas tank and how you have to make sure the gas caps clicks when you close it or your check engine light will come on.

- Caroline T

My RAV4 is definitely made to be a family car. Whether you're using it to drive across country with family, or just to the beach, you'll always have enough space and a comfortable drive.

The gas mileage is great for an SUV. It drives quite smoothly and is an overall comfortable ride for me, my family, and my Uber customers. I do not like the transmission so much. I bought it lightly used, but the transmission has been a bit of a problem with sticking gears, which the manufacturing dealership said was common, but they never fixed it. Still, overall, I love my car.

- Brian m

Rav4 is a great car to own and drive.

I love how spacious it is both in the front and the back seating area. It also has the cargo compartment in the back under the mat which makes extra room for things I always carry with me. It is easy to drive and handle and I love both the interior and exterior and am proud to own it. I have had no problems with it from day 1 and the color silver is a great color and hides dirt.

- Barbara R

2011 RAV4 4 good space great family car.

It is hard to update the GPS. The car cameras and safety is outstanding! The doors sometimes freezes up and the bells and whistles sometimes are unreliable. It runs really well. The car has good gas mileage. For children it is a great car. My wife loved it. There is a lot of storage in the back. However once you start cramming a lot of people it starts to get pretty tight.

- Stephen Y

Rav4 experience. Owning a rav4 offers safety and comfort for your family.

My rav4 is a great compact SUV with lots of legroom and storage space. Maintenance is kept to the regular oil changes and regular upkeep while the truck is still in the lower years but as time moves up it seems like the up keep gets more expensive. This SUV is very reliable and comfortable for long trips and has all the things needed to keep your family safe and secure.

- Denise B

Great reliable mid-size SUV.

Our 2011 rav4 has been very reliable - no maintenance besides regular services such as oil changes and did get new brake pads. The seats fold down easily for extra space and the extra space in the trunk under the floor (where a spare tire normally is) surprisingly fits a lot of things. Big enough for the SUV feel but not too big to feel difficult to drive or park.

- Krystal M

Great car for your high school/college student.

I love this car! It was a great car to use through high school, great for carrying my friends and I around town. Definitely a safe car and trusted by my parents. We did lots of research, and test drove a lot of car, but this ended up being our choice and I still stand by it today. It is a great size, very reliable. Comfy seats, spacious trunk for sports gear.

- Katie R

2011 rav4 is a great vehicle in my honest opinion!

No problems this far. It has comfy seats ample cup holders and storage. It is very reliable and good on gas. I docked a star because of the lack of features but then again it is a 2011. The dash is cute but good be better and believe it or not the colors could've been better I prefer blue myself. It holds a good deal of cargo and all and all a great choice!

- Shonda H

I love the extra space it has "hidden" in the back and the reliability.

I have waited for years to have a rav4 and I finally got mine 3 years ago! It is just a base model, but it has plenty of room for what I need. I have mostly owned Toyotas and I have been spoiled by their reliability. It even has a luggage rack and a little "hidden" storage in the back. That comes in handy when I need to hide birthday or christmas presents!

- Shannon C

Love my first Toyota SUV!

I had one problem with the fuel overflow when I first got it but other than that it has been a great car. It is reliable and comfortable. There is tons of room. Drives very smooth. Very convenient for putting in a car seat. I feel safe in the car. Mine is pretty basic but it has good features. All the dashboard controls are easy to use and convenient.

- Carter M

Spacious and roomy. The back seats go down very easy with one push of the seat.

Very good on gas. Spacious. Low maintenance. It controls good and is good in bad weather. Holds all the grocery and the cargo area in the back is perfect for your furry friends. It is very reliable and along as you change the oil it is good to go. If you need to buy a large item it will fit just put down the back seats and it fits a 8 x 10 carpet.

- Kathleen C

Small family perfection...

It's the perfect size for our family. The air cools quickly in the summer and heat is nice in winter. I love the size of the trunk and the way it opens is perfect for drive in movies. I do wish there were more usable cup holders for my child in the back. With the next vehicle (probably a newer rav4) I'd like to have air in the backseat as well.

- kristin c

Great compact sporty SUV that is great on gas.

The rav4 is a perfect sized compact SUV. It handles great in all kinds of weather. I get great gas mileage filling my tank once a week for about $32. 00. There is plenty of storage room in the back plus an under compartment that is very useful. There is a luggage rack that I believe comes standard. I would definitely purchase another Toyota rav4!

- Jeannette D

I love the car. We camp in it all the time. Some design flaws I'll point out.

Do not like the truck that much. It makes the back unusable for transporting large items since you cannot leave the trunk open as you drive. Additionally, some of the plastic pieces that pop out to access various parts of the car in the interior do not pop back in as well despite the fact that the pieces have not broken or degraded upon removal.

- Nicole L

Good on mileage. Love the third row. Drives nice.

I have no regrets at all since I have owned this car. This is actually my second RAV4. It has a third row which I have been using for my grandchild who says she can see better than when she was sitting in the middle row. The only thing I do not like about it is the radio but that is because I am not used to it. . . Would recommend this car. . .

- Karen C

A very good car for the price.

I like how the door unlocks when I grab the door handle, the 2nd glove box on the dashboard is great, the hidden storage compartment in the rear hatch is great. I hate that the car beeps 3 times when I close a car door, I wish there was better lighting for the rear hatch area. I wish they offered drip guards for the diver and passenger doors.

- Randy S

Power of a "Suv" without the clunkiness associated with them!

Love that it has a 6 cylinder engine, so has a bit more 'oomph' when I need it. Has plenty of room for long trips, but not too big to make it a problem driving. Does okay on gas mileage, but would always like better due to rising cost of gas prices! Would like additional add-ons, but they cost money so am satisfied with what I've got! ;-)

- Michael K

My opinion of my family vehicle 2011 Toyota RAV4 4.

I wish it had Bluetooth capability but overall I love how it rides smooth. Maintenance is very affordable. I noticed the brakes are going out on it 2 times in less than 2 years which is a downfall. In 1. 5 years there has been 2 recalls on my vehicle as well. Overall though the vehicle is very reliable and affordable for me and my family.

- Lindsey K

It lasts a long time with very little upkeep. It's dependable

This is my second Rav4. I still have the first one. It's a 2002 with 210,000 miles on it and it's still running. I like the size of the Rav4 and how the seats will go down so you can get large items in there. They are very reliable cars that last a long time if you take care of them. It is also a nice smooth ride considering it's an SUV.

- Michelle C

There is a flip hazard marked on the visor in the car.

My RAV4 sometimes feels to light when I am rounding corners or when I am driving in wet or snowy conditions. It is not ideal for that. It is comfortable and roomy compared to a sedan. I have a basic model and there are not any special features. The air conditioning works well. I have had no mechanical problems with this vehicle.

- Maggie M

Roof rack standard. Good mileage.

Very maneuverable reliable with low maintenance. Great mileage and very good in snow. Have problem with radio station selector buttons. Very comfortable interior good roof rack and like that the spare tire is outside on rear door. Don't like the fact that rear door opens to the side, like a car door rather than a hatchback.

- Neal S

I love the height it provides to see over the other cars. I feel safe in it.

I absolutely love my car. It is very easy to drive and comfortable for long road trips. I haven't had any problems with the car and have had it for over 6 years. My only wish is that I had a sunroof and the steering wheel hand controls for the radio on it. It is a very reliable car and I plan on keeping it for 5+ more years.

- Rachael Y

It is dependable and reliable.

No issues with my car, it has been extremely reliable and is very comfortable when riding in it. . I absolutely love it and recommend a Toyota to anyone!! I enjoy the power windows, the anti-lock brakes and the anti-skid features it is dependable and reliable and a great family car, you could never go wrong buying a Toyota!!

- Crystal C

Reliable and functional vehicle.

I haven't had any major issues with my rav4. Its proven to be very reliable as long as you give it proper maintenance. I have had this car for over a year now and the only thing that needs replacement is the radio. It just won't take or play any CDs that I try putting in but otherwise the car itself functions very well!

- Mercy F

I love the space and storage.

I love the space it has to offer and the storage it has. There is enough cup holders for everyone in the car. I find that the seats are very comfortable and there is enough leg room in the back for the riders in the back. Love the storage in the very back it's a great place to store items that you don't need everyday.

- Nicole P

An overall solid vehicle with few issues.

I wish the trunk had more space. We have two young children and after putting in the double stroller, there is not much room left for things. I thought it was big enough, but the design of it makes it look bigger than it functionally is I think. The car does drive well though and we haven't had much issue with it.

- Jennifer D

An interesting detail is that it retains value.

This is the second rav 4 I have had. It has been very dependable and has required little repair. Of course I take care of it and get the oil changed regularly and if anything minor happens I take care of it right away. It handles well and is capable of carrying a lot of things in the back. It has good gas mileage.

- Jennifer S

Best car to drive handles like a dream.

Toyota RAV4 is a fabulous super reliable vehicle to drive. It gets great gas mileage and drives like a dream. Handles well in rain and in snow. Definitely an all weather cuv ~ (crossover utility vehicle). If I was to buy a new car tomorrow it would not be hard for me to decide to buy myself another Toyota RAV4.

- Cheryl H

It's very responsive and quickly can get up to highway speeds.

I love the rich red color, leather seats, the sporty styling, and the get-up-and-go. I am disappointed that it does not have any of the bells and whistles I am used to, such as climate control, heated mirrors, electric seats, auto-adjusting rear view mirror. Also wish I had back-up camera and built-in gps.

- Diane L

Rav4 is an ok vehicle. However, I had some expensive repairs for a vehicle.

I got it used at 5 years old in 2016. Had to replace transmission at 60,000 miles one month after I got it. Since then I have had to replace a drive shaft, another big expense. All other maintenance has been routine. Other than those 2 things it is pretty reliable. It now has 150,000 miles and runs well.

- Diana I

Toyota's are dependable, well built, and long lasting vehicles.

I love the size! It's roomier than a sedan and it sits high enough off the ground. I also like the fact that it is not massively huge since I am short. It's very good on gas and very reliable. I have only had to do routine maintenance since I've owned it. I expect to be able to drive it for a long time.

- Shannon H

Cute silver lining that is amazing.

Considering that the car is a 2011, the car works very well and I still love how it looks on the inside and outside. Also, the gas mileage is great. It only takes twenty dollars to fill up the tank and the gas lasts for a good week (I went to school every day and went out with friends on the weekend).

- Gabby M

Reliable SUV and great gas mileage.

The only problem I have had with my rav4 is the cruise control wont work when a certain sensor goes bad and it effects engine performance. After I get it replaced, then everything is good. Aside from that issue, which has happened 3 times in 7 years, I have had no problems with this SUV. I love it.

- Colleen S

Toyota rav4 small but mighty.

This is a really comfortable compact utility vehicle. With in two weeks of buying we drove it 3, 000 miles to go on vacation. Coming from down south in April, we knew being from Wyoming that we would run into snow for Easter. The all wheel drive handled the almost two feet of snow we ran into easy.

- Brandy J

It is a red color car and runs on gasoline. It is my first car and I love it.

I like the size and space in the car. I love the boot door as it opens sideways to I do not have to jump up to grab the door when trying to close it. I also like the interiors. It is an older model so it has started to show signs of years of use. Would love for a newer version or another car soon.

- Kt T

I love my RAV4, and wouldn't trade it for anything.

I love the size of the interior. It is perfect for carrying large purchases, groceries. It has been great for taking my nieces to games, pick up from school, go on shopping trips. It rides nicely, drives nicely, and is good looking. The only drawback is some wind noise when you are on the highway.

- Va W

It is versatile. I can flip the seats down and haul something in the back, or throw in a car seat or booster and pick kids up, or haul a car full for a trip on the highway and not have to worry.

I love the dependability of the vehicle. It hasn't had any major issues, and retains its value. It's a good "mom" car. My only complaint is that the back seat is a little small. You can carry only two adults or two car seats, or one adult and one car seat, or everyone in the back seat is squished!

- Carly B

it's very reliable and long lasting. I've been happy with how Toyotas last a long time.

I love that it sits above the road. It's very comfortable and reliable. No problems with it so far. The brakes are a little sensitive which is the only drawback. It's an older car so there's no plug for the phone, but that's due to its age. I'll consider buying another one when I get my next one.

- Lan M

The best thing about our suv is that it is extremely dependable. We aren't constantly having issues with it and it gets good gas mileage. It's a great family car.

It is a very dependable car. I love that it is good on gas and doesn't cost an arm and a leg to fix when there is a problem. I it 2wd so that isn't the best for New England winters but we use snow tires in the winter so it isn't terrible. It is also fairly comfortable and spacious for our family.

- Maegan C

A car I could sleep like a baby in

2011 Rav4 is a reliable, amazing vehicle. No big problems, keeping it maintained is probably the most expensive part. Although the mileage could be way better, as I have experience with a Prius, but there are no complaints. Love the customization with the chair. Really comfortable leather seats!

- Katelyn L

Toyota RAV4 is a great car.

My RAV4 is super reliable, it has never broken down, it drives very smooth and is nice and quite, it gets good gas mileage, it is comfortable to drive, it has lots of room in the back, it handles well in all weather and when there is ice and snow on the road, and I love the storage in the back.

- Sarah J

Toyota RAV4 is a dependable, quality vehicle with great performance.

My RAV4 is an attractive, dependable vehicle with great horsepower. It was purchased as previously one owner and had all the qualities I wanted: white body, tan leather interior, sunroof and heated seats. With regular service, it has only required one battery and set of tires since purchased.

- Laurie C

It is reliable. I get it serviced regularly, and like cars that have a long lasting reputation, whether or not I choose not to keep them for a long time.

I love SUVs, where you sit slightly higher than a traditional vehicle. My RAV4 isn't for my long-legged , 6 foot husband. Not enough leg room for him, but fine for me. Also, when I have the windows down and go 35 mph or more, it makes an annoying helicopter-type sound that hurts the ears.

- Ramona O

Terrific Toyota. It is great for road trips.

My vehicle is great. I love the gas mileage. It works. The battery is good. The color is nice. I would tell everyone to get a car like mine. I love it. My husband loves it. We use it for road trips. There is a great amount of room. It is by far our favorite car that we have owned.

- Margaret C

The best by far. I adore this vehicle.

It is extremely reliable. I have used it for both my daily commute, long distance trips, and off roading. It handles very well in harsh weather. I have a lot of space for storage, and the back seat is great for my large dog. The features are nice - especially the built in map / GPS system.

- Rebecca H

Great Combo of Passenger and Cargo Space

My RAV4 is a great combination vehicle that allows me comfort for passengers and room for all the "stuff" I pick up. There is a great amount of cargo space in the back, while still keeping legroom for passengers. It has been a reliable car that has not had any major issues thus far at 150K

- Diane M

2011 white Toyota rav4 with tan interior.

Gas lasts about 2 weeks driving a regular amount. Lots of storage. Seats are comfortable even though they are not powered. Cannot use speaker controls with music played through Bluetooth or aux. Console top section does not always close properly. Collects dirt easily with tan upholstery.

- Aly W

This is a very practical and reliable car.

My 2011 Toyota RAV4 has been a trouble free vehicle. I love it is reliability. It is comfortable to ride in. The back seat fits three people fairly comfortably. The back seat folds down which provides plenty of cargo space for hauling stuff. It handles well in snow. A very practical car.

- Pat F

It is great for a small family.

Since purchasing the rav4 it has been great on gas. Have not had any issues, it does great in winter. On a scale 1-10 it's a reliable car. Comfort is nice for a family of 4, it its very roomy. Great big trunk and a lot of storage. Downfall is there in no ac vents in the back seats.

- Vee R

That it handles very good, even in the winter with tons of snow. It has lots of room and sits up more unlike a car.

I love how it runs, have had no engine problems at all. I love that it sits up higher and has room in it. My one and only complaint is if you do need some type of work on it, it does cost more. Also hubby can't change the oil as it takes a special tool I don't remember what it is thou.

- Veronica M

Rav4: great around town and on long trips.

The Toyota rav4 is a great little vehicle, and is equally good on long trips and around town. It is fairly comfy, and the cargo area is large enough for a big dog and his crate to fit comfortably. The steering is nice and tight, and we have had very few problems with it (mechanically).

- Rose H

Great car low gas will serve you well for many thousands of miles.

The rav4 is a good car it is easy on gas. Not the most comfortable auto for a long trip. Mine has a 6 CD player (which newer models no longer have). It does last a long time, I have tires for life as long as I get my service by Toyota. Which as I understand is no longer available.

- Diana C

The v6 engine makes the car very fast and fun to drive.

It has been a very reliable vehicle. It is sporty and the v6 makes it fun to drive. Even though it is an older model it still looks and performs very well. The only thing showing any wear are the pinstripes on the exterior paint and a little on the driver's seat which is leather.

- Lori C

It is cozy and small SUV it is good for carrying passengers.

I wish that it was more comfortable. It does not get great gas mileage either. Wish there was more space in the car for storage. It is reliable and I have hardly had any issues with the car itself. It gets me from point A to point B everyday and that is what is most important.

- Hope B

Great family car, dependable, easy to drive.

Very reliable, has had alternator go out, and transmission may need replacing soon. Has taken us on vacation to California twice, and been great to handle at high speeds on the road. Ac has stayed cool all these years, and heater is great. Easy to drive, does not feel too big.

- Cora A

Great reliability with a rav4.

My rav4 is reliable. Little to no maintenance besides regular checks. Few recalls. Good gas mileage. Rides well. One thing I do not like is that when I leave the lights on and get out of the car, there is no indication to turn them off. Other than that, I really like the car.

- Diane M

One of the most reliable vehicles I have ever owned.

My RAV4 is a high mileage vehicle. It is still on the road, still performing great. It is gone on many road trips. There has only been one breakdown. Absolutely one of the most dependable, reliable vehicles I have ever owned. If something happens to it, I will buy another.

- Susan S

It runs well and still looks in style.

I like my RAV4. It is roomy, and runs well. Never have issues. It is a little noisy of s ride, but not too loud. I like the style of the 2011 because it offers great sight lines into the rear of the car. I enjoy the sunroof and the rear of the car holds plenty of cargo.

- Mary L

Best compact SUV out there!

It is a smaller version of an SUV and I absolutely love it! Very minimum upkeep and maintenance! You'll be happy if you get one! I have only replaced the tires and kept up with oil changes and the vehicle has given me nothing but joy. I wouldn't change it for the world.

- Tessa S

The room inside. It can carry lots of stuff and has roomy passenger compartments.

My RAV4 is a good vehicle. My favorite feature is all of the room inside for passengers and cargo. It is reliable, handles well and gets good gas mileage. My only complaint is with the seats. They are a little stiff and uncomfortable especially the back bench seat.

- Jill J

For such a small vehicle, there is a great amount of storage space

I like that it is a small SUV, so it still drives like a sedan but can hold a lot more things. I also like that the blind spots in the back aren't nearly as bad as in other small SUVs. I don't like how terrible the acceleration is and that it isn't a very smooth ride.

- Christina R

Love my RAV4 and love being a Toyota family.

Love the way it handles and the gas mileage is great. I have never had any problems with my RAV4 and would buy another one. My daughter has one now. She loves it also and love how it handles and rides and how safe it is with my granddaughter. We are a Toyota family.

- Teresa H

Depending on the lighting, it looks green, blue or black.

Performance had been great. It handles well in all conditions. I love the color. It is reliable, and gets good gas mileage. I love the interior. There is enough room for everything I might need on a trip. It is roomy and has a nice stereo system with 6 CD changer.

- Sydney W

Needs a few updates, but worth getting it!

I have the basic RAV4. Very spacious. However, wish there was a 3rd row seat. If you have children, definitely recommend covering the seats. Parts are not as expensive. I love the fact that I do not pay $40 to fill up my tank (36-37). Performance overall is great!

- Sheila H

A Toyota rav4 is a vehicle to rave about.

This vehicle is incredibly reliable. I purchased my vehicle used with 60, 000 miles. It currently has 125, 000 miles and the only issue I have had is a bad o2 sensor. My vehicle still feels as solid as it did when I purchased it and I have never broken down in it.

- Jennifer G

The best reliable solid car.

None. It is my second one. I will buy it again! It is reliable, solidly built, and great in bad weather. I would continue to recommend it to anyone who wants a reliable vehicle. Toyota makes a reliable, solid car. I will continue to buy tab fours. Please buy one.

- Jill G

It is not as roomy as it looks.

The car is really good. It is okay on gas mileage, but sometimes it does get a little pricey trying to fill it up. The last row of seats has no legroom and each row only fits two people. I don't like how hard I have to push the doors for them to close sometimes.

- Gaby R

Sporty and practical family car.

Comfortable seating, powerful acceleration, reliable transportation, great storage, folding seats, economical gas mileage, features 4 x 4 driving, easy access to spare tire, basic features, has aux capability, multiple power outlets, no sunroof, fits in garage.

- Tra S

Toyota tough. Test drive one today and see for yourself.

Built to last. Dependable good on gas... Would buy one again. Tried the other SUVs but Toyota is a winner. Just had a rent a car SUV by Chevy and it was good, but not the ride, the control, of the options of a Toyota. Test drive on today and see for yourself.

- Bob M

It's poorly made in comparison to any other vehicle I have owned.

My vehicle has had more issues than any other vehicle I have owned, including electrical issues and the paint started peeling off from all areas on the car after 3 years. The car was purchased new. I won't purchase another Toyota after this experience.

- Ang D

Toyota vehicle last for many miles without problems.

Never had any problems for 130,000 miles with this car. Do not like the run flat tires which do not last long. They make for a rough ride. I now buy normal tires, still do not have a spare tire but carry a fix a flat canister and the tires last longer.

- Charles K

Good quality car for the overall cost of owning it.

I like the size and power compared to my last car. I also like that it hasn't had many problems requiring expensive repairs. It also gets decent gas mileage for an SUV. Really the only thing that I don't really like about it is how the trunk opens!

- Andy H

Great value for a compact SUV I love driving it.

Great smooth cushioned ride. Easy to handle. Nice useful features. Roomy enough for my needs. I get oil changes as scheduled and I haven't had any issues with the carbon the two plus years i have owned it. I would buy another Toyota in a heartbeat!

- Shonda H

2011 Grey RAV4, great bones, good sound system, runs well in all types of weather.

I've owned this care for 7 years and it has never wronged me. Besides normal maintenance, it has traveled several thousand miles for vacations, work, school and random transportation. The space is perfect for my family and everyone is comfortable.

- Sara M

It is a very reliable vehicle but disappointed with newer models which do not have the personality of the spare tire on the back.

This is the third Toyota we have owned and they are very reliable automobiles. The only drawback with this model is the noise, it did require a new transmission while still under warranty, but it is a great car to drive and good gas mileage.

- Karolyn F

My car is a very reliable and nice vehicle to own and drive.

I like my vehicle because it has all the qualities I like. It is good in snow, seats a decent amount of people. It also has lots of room for shopping items and is big enough for carrying large items. I don't really have any complaints about it.

- Barb L

It is reliable. I trust that my car will be able to go wherever I need to.

My RAV4 has been very reliable. It has held up with mainly just routine maintenance. It is big enough to fit 4 comfortably, but small enough to be easy to maneuver. I'm not a big fan of the back opening right to left versus a typical trunk.

- Laura B

IT's very dependable and safe. It's a great family car and I know toyota is trustworthy

It's an SUV that allows me to fit my family when we travel. It's compact so I don't feel like it's a very large car but also not too small. I wish it had more technological advancements in it but it's very reliable and feels like a safe car

- Rene B

It has a good stereo and there's a lot you can do with the radio.

I like the size and the fact that the seats fold down and it is easy working the storage is wonderful the driving distance from the controls is good I do not like that sometimes it is hard to close the back door and the back door is heavy.

- Michele H

It is good quality for the price.

It sits higher so I have good visibility, and fits my small frame. It has a lot of room and the back seat is extremely comfortable and roomy. It gets good gas mileage and accelerates with ease when needed. I can stuff a ton in this baby.

- Sherry H

The middle seat in the 2nd row is really only good for a very small person. If you have two carseats in the back forget about a 3rd person sitting there.

It's a really reliable car. I have never had any major mechanical issues with it. I love the sport model but I have the run flats. While it's nice not to have a spare the run flats are pretty expensive to replace and can't be patched.

- Kelly A

RAV4: durable, dependable and safe.

I love my Toyota RAV4 because I sit up higher on the road but is easy to maneuver in and out of spaces. I have even been in an accident in my rave and have never felt more safe. Durable, dependable and convenient! Great trunk space!

- Chelsea V

My vehicle has proven to be a great car despite being close to 8 years old.

Toyota rav4 is a very reliable vehicle that gives me minimal problems. I would say the only thing I have to check from time to time is tire pressure - but everything else works great. Awesome gas mpg and comfortable, roomy seating.

- Kate M

It has good mileage for a V6 engine

Stylish vehicle, has higher seats which make it easy for my wife to get in and out. Has a side opening back door which makes it easy for me to stow her walker. With the back seats down it's big enough to large tools and supplies.

- Jim W

It is extremely handy to have a vehicle that is large enough to do any activity like camping, boating, etc. Has a moon roof, that I love. The car has every comfort like heated seats.

Generally love everything about the RAV4's especially if were a brand new car. Bought second hand for reasonable price and warning lights keep going on which costs me money every time I have to bring it back to the dealership!

- No Thank you N

It is reliable. I can always depend on it starting.

I would say that the vehicle is a smooth ride. It runs very well. The color is very nice. The parts are easy to replace. I love Toyota brand. The color is pretty. It is a reliable car. I would choose to buy this vehicle again.

- Margaret M

It always seems to be in style.

Just keep up with maintenance. Runs well. Never had a problem. Like the room, and the sight lines. Is a little noisy, but still rides very well. I like the 2011 because the rear view is large. The newer models seem smaller.

- Sue L

It has great gas mileage for a SUV.

The RAV4 is,a dependable car and has good gas mileage. It is comfortable to drive and I love that it is 4wd. It was the perfect size when we just had out first son, but now with two boys it is getting a little small.

- Lauren L

Budget vehicle for couple or small family

budget vehicle with decent room in the back. can sit up to 5 people very comfortably. it doesn't have a true AWD, but it has 4WD for low speed to get out of bad spots. Oil change for every 5000 miles saves me time.

- Ray W

It is the perfect size for carrying things bought at the store or garage sales.

I love the size, the space for hauling. I really like how the back door opens outward, rather than overhead. It is comfortable to drive and ride in. I dislike that there is a loud wind sound when on the highway,

- Virginia e

Toyota RAV4 is the best. Dependable. Good gas mileage. Great in bad weather.

The only thing I don't like is how the rear door swings out. Newer models no longer have it like that. Has good gas mileage. 4WD is a must. Rear seats fold down giving you extra room to carry things. Drives smooth.

- Patty O

It's cornering ability. This car really handles like a sports car.

My vehicle is roomy, sporty, and very dependable. I like the way my vehicle handles. I don't like the fact that there is not air vent at the back of the center console to provide air to the back seat passengers.

- Lisa d

It offers a wealth of advanced safety features and has an above-average predicted reliability rating. It earns praise for being solid and well-built, and its cargo space is among the largest in the class.

Toyota RAV4 It offers a wealth of advanced features and has an above-average predicted reliability rating. It earns praise for being solid and well-built, and its cargo space is among the largest in the class.

- amy S

The car is a perfect small to midsize SUV with good mileage and cargo space

It was bought used and mileage I have on it has been fantastic. I enjoy the cargo space in the back, but the car itself is not too long. I do wish the back door would open vertically instead on horizontally.

- James F

Faulty GPS screen on Rav4.

Touchscreen on GPS cracked. Toyota said it was customer's fault. Yet, I only used it as directed and it cracked only because of it being used. If it is customer's fault, they should build stronger screens.

- Ron W

It has proven to be quite reliable in all types of weather

I love how she handles in the snow. I like that the spare tire is on the outside of vehicle for easy access. The interior is spacious for road trips and has plenty of storage room in the back and rooftop

- barb j

My 2011 Toyota RV4 is a very reliable vehicle and I would highly recommend it to others.

I have a 2011 Toyota RV4. I like that it has been a very reliable vehicle for the whole time I have owned it. Everything works well on it, especially the air conditioning. I have no complaints thus far.

- Barb L

It gets good gas mileage and hasn't had any big problems.

My car is dependable and has lasted for a few years. I haven't had any issues with my AC or other features that sometimes break on cars. My only complaint is that the front bumper is easily damaged.

- Tori K

It is spacious but also not too large.

This is my second Toyota RAV4 and I will probably by Toyota RAV4s for the rest of my life. It is a versatile car that can fit my friends while still being an economical option for long distance travel

- Grace W

It is a sturdy, dependable car.

I really like the size of the vehicle. I like that it has a sporty look; I can take it into towns but it can also handle poor weather roads. My car is exactly what I need. It is safe and reliable.

- Greta S

Extremely smooth-running.

Car is extremely reliable. Currently has over 100,000 miles and no extreme problems so far. Only had to change the tires once since buying. Seatbelt for middle seat in the back is worst feature.

- Jenny A

Toyota Rav4 is mostly a good car

The car is dependable and easy to drive. It is not particularly efficient on fuel. It also had an odd problem a couple of times where it just started accelerating. I suspect the cruise control.


The one thing that is important about my RAV4 is that it is very reliable and dependable.

I have had my RAV4 since 2011. I like that it is like a SUV, but not as large as one. I do like to sit up higher than a car, which helps with seeing farther. It is very comfortable and stylish.

- Suzanne L

That it is good on gas and the car lock doesn't work like it should

I like that it is a family vehicle. It gets me from point a to point b. I can put the seats down to move items from one place to another. I like that there is a storage compartment underneath.

- Jennifer R

I feel safe driving my car. I'm at a comfortable height and it is short enough where parking isn't an issue.

I love my rav4. I've had it for 6 years and haven't had any issues with it. I have 4 wheel drive. There is leather interior and a backup camera in your rearview mirror when you go in reverse.

- Brook E

It has proven to be reliable and cost effective to maintain.

Good interior space without be to large a vehicle, decent mileage. Nice electronic package with outlets for all of our devices. I have restricted mobility and it is easy to get in and out of.

- Barbara E

Not to big like an SUV but bigger than a sedan.

I have no problems it is very reliable and comfortable. I do not like the way the rear trunk door swings open instead of lift and I do not like the spare tire on the rear (trunk) door.

- Lisa M

It is fun and easy to drive and park

I like my care because it is roomy in the front and back. It is easy to load and unload. I love the color grey it is. It is easy to navigate There is nothing I dislike about it.

- Barbara M

It is great for moving things.

I love everything about it except that there is a loud wind noise when driving on the highway. I love the interior size, especially for carrying large purchases while out shopping.

- Va W

It has great performance with great fuel efficiency.

My RAV4 has acceleration capabilities to make me feel confident while driving. It's very fuel efficient. It's roomy enough to do my shopping and have enough seats for passengers.

- Will H

It is roomy and reliable and gets good mileage.

No problems whatsoever. It is reliable and built tough. I also maintain it regularly which probably helps to keep it running so well. I cannot think of anything I'd rather drive.

- Kat W

It's a safe and reliable car. It gets good gas mileage, and drives well.

My car is easy to drive and park. It is comfortable, and looks nice. It gets good gas mileage. Right now I am having some problems with the U joint that I need to get replaced.

- Lorena S

To me, the most important thing is the amount of power the V6 engine brings to it.

My RAV4 is perfect for my style of driving. I sit a little higher up than a regular car plus it has enough power to haul a small trailer. It also seats four very comfortably.

- John M

Its a solid car but its nothing fancy. It has been reliable for years and has never truly had any problems

It's comfortable but its too big (for me personally) and its outdated tech wise, there aren't really any "bells and whistles". But it does have great visibility and drives well

- Kayla F

I feel that its a safe car.

I like that the spare tire is on the back of the door. The trunk is a little bigger than the newer ones. There's not a lot of legroom in the back seat compared to newer ones.

- Jamie S

I believe that you will be very happy with the reliability and great gas mileage.

I bought this car new and have never had a problem with it. It has great gas mileage and plenty of room for my entire family. One of my favorite things is the storage though.

- Brenda D

Its rugged and reliable, and it fires up everyday like a champ

Its fairly comfortable to ride in, yet noisy. It's not quite as good in the snowcas I'd like it to be. It has been reliable, but again, doesn't function great in cold temps.

- Pep C

It is surprisingly spacious.

I like the room. It is comfortable to drive. I do not like the tire pressure light coming on all the time. I do not like the plastic cover on undercarriage dislodges easily.

- Kelley H

My Toyota's name is Ravi!

My car has zero problems, it has AC, good gas mileage and gets me to where I need to go. It's very comfortable for me and my 3 kids. It has a sunroof which my children love.

- Ashley P

Beautiful vehicle, inside and outside.

Very comfortable and luxurious. I enjoy how spacious it is and how smoothly it rides. I wish it had better gas mileage but for a luxury SUV I am pleased for the most part.

- Caitlin R

My rav4 is six years old and still drives like new

I love everything about my rav4. It drives well. It gets good gas mileage and it is not too expensive to maintain. I am short but i have no problems sitting comfortably.

- Nancy G

It is easy to take care, and black is alway a awesome color for the car.

It is a small enough but still has big trunk space. I like SUV, high seating but not too high like the truck. Only I wish it has rear end camera and GPS in the 2011 model.

- Jackny G

It is mine, you can't have it! I love it and it is the best ever

I love just about everything about it but I wish it had 6 cylinders instead of 4. Then it would be a little peppier. But I do love the color (black) and they way it looks.

- Laura S

A dependable and reliable vehicle.

My high mileage RAV4 has been an excellent car. It is dependable. I have driven cross country twice. I have only had one major breakdown/repair since I have owned it.

- Susan S

Great car for small adventures

It's the perfect CUV, not too big not too small and comfortable. Pretty good gas mileage and we love the storage space in back for when we use our car for road trips

- Elisha B

The front seat is amazingly comfortable. The backseat, not so much.

My vehicle is very comfortable to sit in. That is the primary reason I own it. I do not like how expensive it is to keep up. (gas mileage, cost of tires, insurance)

- Laurie A

Fabulous, multi purpose vehicle.

I love the room it has and that I can put the seats down to haul things. I also love the height of the rear cargo, it's easy to move my sewing machine to retreats.

- Villa O

The seat belts are not comfortable.

Easy to get into as i am disabled. It sets high on the road thus easy to see traffic ahead. Comfortable to drive long distances but wished it had satellite radio.

- Cathy R

One important thing everyone should know about my car is that I just love it!

I like never having to worry about breaking down, due to the reliability. It has a very sporty and still cute look to the body of the vehicle, as well as color.

- Samantha S

It is pretty reliable and Toyota took care of the first two maintenance for free.

The Rav4 fits all my personal needs. It has plenty of room for luggage and other storage items. It is also the perfect sized vehicle with decent fuel economy.

- William B

It has symmetrical all wheel drive and handles well in all weather conditions.

I love everything about my car. After my first RAV4 died, I got a different SUV and hated everything about it. I bought another rav4 less than a year later.

- Alexis B

That it's comfortable to drive and to ride in.

I wish that the car was a little higher off the ground and that the rear door opened upward instead of to the side. I love how it drives and that moonroof

- Melissa p

Would definitely buy again!!!

Very reliable. Like the way it handles. I am short but it is easy for me to handle, good all around visibility. Would definitely look into buying another

- Mary A

It drives great and is safe and it is a great small family car

I love my Rav, I always wanted one. It drives great. However, it is getting too small for my family. With 2 kids and a large dog, we have trouble fitting

- Morgan P

It does not get the greatest gas mileage. I always think of Toyota's having good mileage potential. This one does not.

It is dependable. I don't have to do much maintenance. It does not get the mileage I'd hoped for and there are too many of the same vehicle in this town.

- Steve S

It is durable- no problems after 7 years! The vehicle is built to last.

I like how well the Rav4 handles the winter weather. It is now 7 years old and have not had a single problem, but do take it in for regular maintenance.

A Perfect car for families or animal lovers. Gas mileage is also wonderful.

My car easily holds my entire family, and has room for my dogs. It's hold my kayaks and allows me to travel through mountains and cities with no issues.

I own a 2011 RAV4 Limited. I like my RAV4 for is performance,looks,and style. No complaints. Performs great as long as you keep up with the maintenance.

I like the ride. It drives well. I do not like the back door...it only opens to the side. I do not like the window noise from the rear seat windows

It has never broken down.

Get me from A to B, good mileage. No oil problems, hundred thousand miles I thing, working air conditioner, check engine light is not one all the time.

- Jason H

It's spacious and great for a family of four. I have two kids and it's a great car for it.

It is a great safe car for teenagers.

Its dependable. It has amazing space. The gas mileage is not the greatest. Its comfortable for long car rides. We take it on several trips together.

- Maggie C

It is a cool vehicle. I would not trade it for any other. It is red and that is my favorite color.

Have had no trouble with it. Only had to replace thing like tires and battery. Have taken a lot of trips in it. It is a comfort ride and I love it.

- Barbara N

It's very comfortable to drive. It easily fits 5 people. I share it with my son and we both love it.

I like the way it handles. I like that it's not too big or too small .With the seats down there's a lot of room in the back . I like that it's red.

- cheryl m

It is compact but durable. It is a good family car and has been very convenient taking on road trips with the space

I love the space in the Rav4 yet it is small enough to feel comfortable to get around in small places. I love the extra storage area in our vehicle

- Kristin P

Great car good with cas and errands

I am short. Sometimes hard to get into vehicle. Very reliable car. Requires little maintenance. Fits three car seats in back. Great to haul items

- Delourde S

The vehicle is long lasting.

- Johanna S

It is safe and dependable.

I like that my vehicle has all wheel drive. I like that it is attractive. I wish It were just a little bigger. An optional 3rd row would be nice.

- Kami O

Toyota makes good reliable vehicles.

Because it is an SUV, it is higher than a sedan; able to see surroundings better; it is compact for doing daily errands. It is good in the snow.

- Karen P

It's a reliable car and looks nice

I love how cold the air gets. I love the design of the car and it's safety ratings. I think the gas mileage is pretty good but could be better.

- Brandi M

It really has been a great car. Good mileage and reliable.

I like the size and height. Not too tall but good cargo space even with passengers. I do not love that it is getting old and I am getting rust.

- Charlie P

Reliable and comfortable as well.

This car is very reliable. I have driven it for 7 yrs. w o a single issue. I love everything about it except a blind spot on the rear corners.

- Susan F

It's great in the snow and the four wheel drive auto engages so you don't have to worry about shifting into it.

It's great in the snow. It is reliable and has not needed major repairs the few years I've had it. The only dislike is the amount of recalls.

- Tabitha T

It has great gas mileage.

I wish it was a little larger overall. I wish it had a 3rd row. I would like to have more "trunk space". I would also like automatic lights.

- Nicole W

I would say that it is great on gas.

The rav4 is-economically friendly and handles well. . Toyota tends to have a long life. . I would also say that it has enough space for me.

- Lydia A

Best vehicle I'll ever own. Very reliable and comfortable

Wonderful car. Amazing all wheel drive that works perfectly in the winter. Two rows of seats and extra storage in the trunk. Love love love

- Maria H
