As compared to the Hyundai and the Mitsubishi Out lander, appearance is cleaner inside and out. I purchased the 5 seat without the two extra seats available. The back two seats are not of great use unless for small child or the dog. I wanted the cargo area. The other two have drop down seats but the do not law as flat, and you give up the underfloor storage. They is also a few extra inches inside., makes a difference getting in. Back-up camera moves with steering wheel.
Great dependable vehicle!!
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.
I have enjoyed driving this vehicle and found it to be very reliable in all weather conditions. It is also good on gas for an all wheel drive vehicle..
I bought this vehicle from a family member and I love it. It is now 15 years old and it still runs amazing! It is king of the road in the snow. Never could I get this stuck even when I tried. Just keep the oil changed and you are good to go! Lots of power too.
Love this car more than enough power maybe to much as every time I look I'm too fast. extremely comfortable and plenty of room for 7. economy could be a little better as I'm getting about 21 mpg over all maybe better if not as heavy footed. I have no idea what all the previous complaints about Ford sync are because we have had no problem at all
