We love our Toyota RAV4, great car for driving around town and running errands.

This car is very reliable, I drive my two toddlers around everywhere in it and have complete confidence in its safety or worry about it breaking down on me anywhere. The only issue is the drive is a bit shaky, maybe a transmission issue? The cost of repair parts for any Toyota is a bit pricey, but the quality is excellent so no worries about having to do more work on the same issue before the recommendations. The interior is roomy and comfortable; however the back seats seem to have less padding but for us that is no issue because the kids are in their car seats, which fit pretty well. They can go in rear facing without having to move the front seats up at all. It has great visibility of the road while driving with barely any blind spots. It has great convenience features for everyone with plenty of cup holders and storage areas. The USB plug is very slow to charge a phone though, so long road trips will most likely drain the phone battery if you are listening to music. Gas mileage is decent, around 26 mpg/32 highway. You do have to watch your speed though because just a little tap to accelerate and it really is responsive. The seats fold down completely which is nice considering the trunk space is an odd shape, so if you need to transport large items they will not usually fit in the trunk, you will be folding down the seats to get it to fit, and if you have young kids in car seats, that is a major hassle to have to be constantly removing their car seats. Overall this is an exceptional vehicle for driving around the area.

Rav4 review: Good car and great for road trips.

I love the rav4. Holds a lot of space. Perfect for transporting music equipment. Reliable. I haven't had many issues with it. It is a black 2013 rav4. The headlights seem to go out fairly frequently compared to other vehicles. The plastic underside of the vehicle also gets scratched easily and their does not seem to be an easy way to repair it. You just have to live with the scratches. I would Definity get a newer model of this car in the future, although I wish it could hold a bit more space and was more fuel efficient. It is pretty good but it could be better. It has been very reliable when I have run out of gas. The engine did not need a jump or anything. Very simple. I do not know much about cars but I know that I enjoy this car. It is a black car. I am also fine with the car being from japan. Some people prefer an American made car but that doesn't bother me as long as Toyota treats their workers well. That is very important. The leather seats are very comfortable and they are very easy to clean. They do get severely hot when the car is in the sun because they are so reflective. I enjoy that the seats are motor controlled, it makes it very easy to adjust the seat while driving if I am uncomfortable while I am driving. I would recommend this car to a friend. It is great for road trips because it can fit a lot space for luggage and other items.

The most important thing to know is that it is roomy and perfect for a small family.

My rav4 is perfect for my family of 4. I find the cabin very comfortable and roomy. I only wish it had satellite radio but that's no big deal! AC gets cold quickly, sound system is great! My 2 kids fit comfortably in the back with their booster seats and there is room for a skinny adult to sit between them in the middle. The back seat has some storage space underneath it which I love for putting things like shoes or an umbrella. Plenty of trunk space, and I bought a mesh cargo storage thing from amazon and love my trunk even more now! Groceries don't fly all over the place! I purchased the vehicle used from Carmax several years ago and it came with an aftermarket battery which ended up not sitting in the housing correctly and during u-turns the starter cable actually disconnected a few times before realizing the battery was shifting, but other than that, once we replaced it with a correctly sized battery, I have been in love with my car!
