I love it!

This car drives great, handles well in the rain and the light snow I experienced so far. I feel very confident driving this car with my kids in it. Its a great family car tons of room in the cargo area. I can fit the kids big tire wagon, stroller and other things. Also the backseat isn't bad either, i wouldn't mind seating back there on a roadtrip. And the look is very sporty, i dont feel like its a mommy car or I would of never bought it. Lol Overall I love this car.

The best in the market place

It is my experience that Toyota Rav4 is the best. My first car was the 1999 Rav4 in 2016 I gave it away and purchased the 2016 Rav4. The car was running well when I passed it on to someone else, I wanted to up-date. The 1999 is still running well. The only place I purchase from was CarMax because of the great service.


  • Reliability:
  • Fuel Economy:
  • Value:
