LOVE LOVE LOVE my Rav4

It's a great overall size of vehicle for us- I have enough room for grandchildren and often have to carry a dog in the back of the vehicle- my vehicle was preowned and has the all-weather mats- a big plus! This is my around town vehicle but will carry our suitcases for a trip for my hubby and myself, I would drive across country in the vehicle if needed.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling:
  • Reliability:
  • Value:

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: only get about 25 miles per gallon

- Cindi P, 2018 Toyota RAV4

Cookie Monster

Cookie Monster is easy to drive and gets great gas mileage. It’s comfortable for long stretches and holds a lot more stuff than I thought it could! if I could change anything about it, I would make sure there was a tire indicator that showed exactly which tire was low. I would also add a few gallons of capacity to the gas tank so I wouldn’t have to fill up as often. Overall, I am in love with Cookie Monster and will DEFINITELY buy another one just like him when my current one dies.

Pros

  • Reliability: I drive a LOT of miles every week between my two jobs and picking up my kids. I can depend on Cookie Monster to get me where I’m going without breaking down on me.
  • Cabin Noise: Cabin noise is a lot quieter than other small SUV’s I’ve had the pleasure of riding in.
  • Styling:

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: I would like a larger tank on Cookie Monster to prevent me from having to fill up quite as often.
  • Interior Space: I buy LARGE drinks and the front cup holder is what I use for me when I’m the driver. I would really like an upgrade in placement of cup holders and a turn-dial to switch gears. I also would prefer a foot break to a hand break because I have a teenager who plays GTA and like to pretend he is going to pull the hand break so he can Tokyo Drift. it would be safer if the break was out of his reach.
  • Seat Comfort: As I stated earlier, I drive a LOT of miles weekly and would prefer the seats were a little softer.

Does its job

I chose the RAV4 because I believed it would be practical, and practical it is. I recommend the 2018 RAV4, but I suggest anyone who can afford it upgrade from the base LE model to the XLE trim. The differences in comfort and function are quite significant. Nevertheless, I am satisfied with a very efficient, sufficiently powerful (for passenger use,) and reasonably comfortable car at a great price.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: IT's huge! One of the best interior cargo areas on a compact SUV, at least in my experience,
  • Fuel Economy: The fuel efficiency gets me where I need to go for cheap with plenty of cargo space.
  • Value: With high safety marks, excellent cabin/cargo space, good handling, low maintenance costs, and fabulous fuel efficiency, I think it is a great value at whatever trim.

Cons

  • Seat Comfort: Hard seats, poor ergonomics (for a healthy spine,) and few adjustments in the LE trim's seats. The XLE's seats are much better in all categories.
  • Power: I do not have an issue with the power, exactly, but it is worth noting that cannot tow (with hitch not included,) and filling the cab with overweight people (like my family) may give it some trouble. Keep the gross weight and fuel efficiency balance in mind. RAV4 is definitely on the efficient side of that.
  • Technology and Entertainment: I have just onecomplaint about the Le trim of the 2018 RAV4: GPS is not integrated into the base model's touchscreen, so anyone seeking any GPS function will have to supply their own. Otherwise, it is a good system that could just use a little better sound quality and reliability (when interfacing with apple music.)
