Toyota RAV4 Reliability and Durability: Pros

2015 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Doesn't everyone who buys a Toyota expect it to just run? With 7500 miles on the odometer, I can say I've got no issues nor do I expect any. No weird noises, nothing to take back to the dealer for, it all just works, and has been since I got it. That is a reassuring start, but something I've come to take for granted with the Toyota products.
2009 4dr SUV 179-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
High ratings from every car review I have read. Very high resale value and see used ones all the time with 150k+ miles - I should be able to own this 10+ years.

After trading in a car that was in the shop 6+ times a year, I wanted a vehicle with an above-average likelihood of reliability. This vehicle has so far lived up to reliability expectations.

Several of my family members have had Toyotas over the years with no majot issues.
