Toyota RAV4 Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr SUV 269-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
I have had zero problems with the car.
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.
2009 4dr SUV 269-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
Excellent long term reliablity
2008 4dr SUV 269-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
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.
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Unfortunately, I had to get rid of this car because with less than 100, 000 miles (it had 95, 000) and having beenexcellently maintained it gave me oil sludge problem, and the dealer recommended engine replacement... Unvelievable in a Toyota with such a low, well maintainedvehicle. I will never, ever again buy a Toyota. It was my first (and last) one. I would not recommend it to any one...
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4

It goes without saying that everyone wants a reliable vehicle. I believe that Toyota is not alone in that objective, the other manufacteurs have caught up with them.

Toyota reputation.

Many, many hassle-free miles. Few repairs needed.
2008 4dr SUV 269-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
Low maintenance cost, few recalls, no issues at all no rattles or squeeks and Toyota dealer has been very fair
