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.
