[Jalopnik] For $5,000, Is This 1996 Toyota RAV4 Something To RAV About?



Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe RAV4 is quite literally the Corolla of small crossovers, which might be both a good and a bad thing. Let’s see if its price makes this crossover, cross-over to one side or the other.

<SNIP!>

Now, had yesterday’s California been as red as today’s 1996 Toyota RAV4 perhaps its outcome would have been different. Speaking of which, you couldn’t get much more different from a Ferrari than with a RAV4.

Toyota’s little crossover rode the wave of similar cars that invaded the U.S. in the mid-nineties. Many of those - Chevy’s Tracker, Daihatsu (gesundheit) Rocky, Suzuki Sidekick, etc - have fallen by the wayside while Toyota’s stalwart wagon soldiers on, now on its fourth generation.

This regular feature on Jalopnik is showcasing a relatively rare RAV4 2-Door Craigslist posting from Portland, Oregon...
