Our first visit to Toy­ota Pasig didn’t work out as ty­phoon and floods saw the show­room close early. We re­turned a few days later to ex­am­ine the Toy­ota RAV4. Toy­ota Pasig, un­for­tu­nately, didn’t have an avail­able unit of the RAV4 for sale but the kind em­ploy­ees gladly showed us the as­sis­tant gen­eral man­ager’s per­sonal unit. The RAV4’s size is good and the car also sports a de­cent look. The Ja­panese brand’s re­li­a­bil­ity and parts avail­abil­ity will be guar­an­teed if this car is picked. The only prob­lem? Gen ul­ti­mately wants to pur­chase and drive home a diesel ve­hi­cle.

PROs

Toy­ota re­li­a­bil­ity; wide­spread dealer net­work; Toy­ota Fi­nance Ser­vice lease-to-own pro­gram

CONs

poor specs compared to com­peti­tors; no diesel option; tight­est legroom in the back
