The technically sophisticated SUV can match up with front-drive crossovers, luxury models or rugged off-roaders.
Q: I own three Toyotas and I change oil and filters every 4,000 miles. My 1998 Land Cruiser with 217,000 miles and my 2004 Sienna with 168,000 miles use no more than ⅓ of a quart of oil between oil changes. But my 2008 RAV4 with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine consumes about 1 ¼ quarts during each 4,000-mile oil change interval. This consumption hasn’t changed since new. I realize Toyota considers this to be “normal,” but I’m concerned whether this is an indication I shouldn’t expect to reach my “normal” 200,000-mile-plus life from this vehicle.
