Comfortable and Reliable Car

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

I've had this car for almost two years after buying it used. I've had no mechanical issues with it so far. It was easy to adapt to driving it. The gas is pretty sensitive, so it doesn't take much to pick up speed. The only downside is that it seems to have a pretty small gas tank. I get tired of filling up my gas so often. It is pretty comfortable though, I drove it across the country and back and was happy with it. I like how the backup camera shows up on the rear view mirror when you put it in reverse, so it is easy to still use your mirrors as well as the camera. I've noticed a lot of the time when the camera is on the dashboard, people tend to rely only on the camera. It's the best car I or my family has owned I would recommend it to everyone. It has all the perks you would want (sunroof, heated seats, etc.)

Rav4 limited is a comfortable way to move anything you need to haul.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

I really like the rav4 limited. The leather seats are comfortable and I never want to drive without seat warmers again. I like the size of the rav4. It is compact but has plenty of space for anything that we need to haul. We are constantly delivering items for work, buying large garden supplies, and lending our car to move smaller pieces of furniture. For a practical, affordable vehicle, it is pretty great. I would always get the limited edition, if possible. The upgrades are worth the extra price.

Overall I love this vehicle. It's just perfect for me.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

This is actually my second RAV4. I previously owned 2009 RAV4. This smaller SUV but has great capacity, push start, sunroof, camera, easy to get in and out of parking. I never had any problems, I actually get compliments about how good condition the engine is, every time I take it for oil change/maintenance. If I had to pick one thing negative about this vehicle is that it's not loud but not the most quiet vehicle. For my husband, it does not have enough leg rooms especially for a long driving.

I love the Toyota rav4 with keyless entry.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

I like the rav4 because it has a lot of space inside to handle a lot of items at one time and yet the size of the vehicle itself is not too over sized. It has a lot of convenience features like keyless entry. It is nice to not have to fumble for your keys. I also like that you can change your radio station and adjust the volume right on your steering wheel. That way you do not have to take your eyes away from traffic.

They don't make the V6 RAV4 anymore but it is a powerful, quick little SUV.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

V6, very peppy with fantastic pick up getting on the highway. Super reliable despite transversing the North East US and having over 200,000 miles. JUST encountered my first major repair due to wear and that was my water pump. It was bound to happen though. Aside from that I have never put a dime into it aside from oil, brakes, and tires. Beautiful, spacious interior. Sound system great.

Toyota RAV4 Limited positive review

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

My car is very reliable. It has lots of upgrades, GPS, leather seats, moonroof, multi-level adjustable seats. There is plenty of cargo space, cruise control, good gas mileage. The only problem I has was the drivers side sun visor dropped and had to be replaced. This is the second RAV4 with that problem. Comfortable ride with room for 5. Will buy another one, my third.

- Cindy V

Top notch automobile. Top notch performance and reliability.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

I haven't had any problems thus far. I keep it maintained well. It fits my needs. Good on gas. Very comfortable. It has leather interior which is easily cleaned. The performance meets my needs with acceleration feels top notch when merging onto the interstate. Fits five adults comfortable. I have recommended this automobile to friends and family.

- Celia B

Good on mileage for little money.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

I love my car. Good miles for little money on gas. Good a/c and heater. Radio and CD player good sound, trunk big enough for me. Updated on routine service at the car dealer. Good tires. Brakes always taking care of at dealer. I bring my car only to Toyota's dealer.

Very Reliable and Dependable

2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited

I have owned by Rav4 for 6 years now and have had no major repairs needed. It has been a reliable car. My only complaint is that the road noise can be quite loud. I like having the tire on the back as there is extra storage where most spare tires are located.
