My snowplow by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/26/2013. Trim: 2000 Toyota RAV4 4-Door 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Good gas mileage in town and on the highway. Excellent in snow and on ice. Very smooth ride even with snow tires on. Toyota quality!
Overall review: I have three of these rigs. The oldest has 288,819 miles on it and is still running like the day I bought it new. I use these for my job and have put them though things that most suvs wouldn't even be able to handle. If you are looking for something that is good on gas, can handle all types of weather, and is built to last then this is a suv you should consider. I also own a 06 wrangler with 30 inch snow tires and my rav4 handles the snow and ice much better than it does.

Great little mini SUV! by Yvonne from Warwick, PA. on 09/04/2011. Trim: 2000 Toyota RAV4 4-Door 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I purchased this car brand new in 2000. This was the last of the "sneaker" shaped model. I replaced the timing belt last year and I currently have 131,450 miles on it. I was contemplating purchasing a new RAV next year but ultimately changed my mind. Runs good, I had to replace the muffler/tailpipe twice in 11 years (that isn't at all bad) and just put new tires on it last month. Replaced the battery twice but overall, I love it. I will run it until it's on its last wheels. :-)
Cons: Acceleration is and always has been poor since it's a 4-cylinder. It has a booster switch that gives it an extra oomph when highway accelerating but doesn't do that much.
Overall review: Excellent buy for a teen's first car. There's not a whole lot of leg room in the back which would discourage large groups from riding in it; nice storage area in the back with collapsible back seats that offer more room for storage.

I Really Like My RAV4 by A CarPoint Consumer on 06/18/2001. Trim: 2000 Toyota RAV4 4-Door 4WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The door on back, the flip up seats, the maneuvering just like the corolla I used to have. Everyone who sees it wants to look inside and are also impressed.
Cons: The speedometer is not visible on bright sunny days even with headlights on to light up dash dials. Front seats (bucket style) unconfortable causing low back pain from one hip sitting higher than other especially longer trips. I would like flatter or bench seat. The position of the seatbelt is off. Even at 5' 10" the belt cuts across neck and throat,
Overall review: I love the convience the adaptablility of interior to lifestyle at the moment.
