Great sporty replacement for my 4Runner Lmtd V6. But I kept my 4Runner with 220k on it, I still love this Rav4. The 4 cyl has a lot of power. And there is lots of space. I only average 20mpg. It's awesome around town and on the freeway.
Love the interior, roomy and comfortable. But the ride and handling are awful. Went from a Lincoln to this Toyota Highlander and the difference was felt immediately. Won't buy another one.
Close to a perfect vehicle - nothing more to say!
Cons: N/AEverything is perfect in this car. I would suggest if anyone wants to buy a SUV then go for a 4runner. Great ride. Can't feel any bumps or anything. Love this car.
Pros: gas mileage, excellent acceleration from a standstill.
Cons: ride, road noise, headrests, side windows fog too easily, cloth seats, too much body plastic, transmissionI was expecting a little more after reading the reviews in various magazines and after owning a 1998 Sienna, which I loved. The Hylander I purchased is a 4-cylinder, 6 speed, with a third row bench seat. No bells or whistles. Pretty much stock. Diappointments - transmission does not shift smoothly, the ride is rough, the headrests are too far forward, the road noise is atrocious, too much plastic, driver's seat cloth wrinkled and stretched, weak A/C, side windows fog up too easily, and the original tires wore out (cupping) under 25,000 miles.
Pros: Center console and easy access to seats
Cons: Storage compartment lightA super vehicle
cheap plastic and leather
Cons: cheap plasticpoor fit of chrome trim around doors.cheap plastic -good looking car lots of room
