The RAV4 is my first vehicle after more than ten years with a Ford F-150. I wanted to go for more of an SUV but not something that was too much of a tank. This has been a pleasant surprise. My primary concerns are reliability, gas mileage and ability to carry some cargo. The RAV4 was well-rated by Consumer Reports. It handles easily and maneuvers well. This model includes a reverse camera built into the rear view mirror, which makes it easy to keep an eye on the surroundings when backing up. The external spare tire storage maximises the cargo space and the track on top provide additional ways to carry. I've had to become more of an expert packer, but have been able to carry what I need so far.
Great SUV, just what I was looking for!
2015 Toyota RAV4Terri Coker - Jacksonville, FL05/27/2016
It has a great feel on the road, sits high with very good all around visibility which was essential for me, priced good and had low mileage when I purchased it! It was like buying a new car, but someone else had to take the "drive off the lot" hit, rather than me! Thanks CarMax!
Reliable, Enough Power & Great on Fuel
2013 Toyota RAV4frances skipworth - san antonio, TX04/19/2017
I am trading in my 2013 Rav4 only because on Road trips, I cannot bear the uncomfortable seats. Headrests are pushed forward 7 will not adjust back. The loud cabin noise i can put up with but i need to be comfortable on road trips so i have to part ways with Rav4.
