Good one! Nice alternative to Pre owned Subaru by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/05/2012. Owned 1 year.
Pros: Fun to drive, responsive, great in rain & snow, love the tailgate door, spacious trunk, decent pick up for non turbo, great cup holders & storage, compact
Cons: Needs fifth gear, seats not super comfortable
Overall review: I got a good deal on a certified Pre-0wned 05 Rav. I love it! I'm sure the newer ones have addressed my few issues. The seats are ok, but could be much better. The back seats feel a little awkward, not good for passengers on long drives but not really an issue for us (dog loves it!). It's pretty basic, even my L model, but the heat and AC are great like all toyotas. I love driving this car and would love to upgrade someday to a newer model! I wanted a Subaru, ended up with the Rav, and am very happy with it. Seems reliable and I have taken it on numerous 7+ hour trips up north with no problems. Good headlight and I appreciate the fogs!! It could use a fifth gear for highway driving as the rpms are a little loud over 65 mph, but now I'm used to it. I think it looks great too. Not super fancy or sporty, but a good reliable Pre owned vehicle that should last me for years. Glad to have no financing!
