2001 Toyota RAV4 Reviews
Bought new a 2001 Rav4, as I head into my 10th year of owership I have 199,000 miles!
I just this month had to replace the original clutch...wow! I have had no major repair issues with my Rav, in the first few years there was a problem with the check engine light that kept coming on, but there was a recall I think that reset the sensor or something and that has no longer been an issue. I just drove my 85 year mom for a 2 hour drive for christmas...she remarked how comfortable the seating was...so go figure, I keep looking at the pretty new cars, but my Reliable Rav4 is just not going to let me move on to anything new...
