I was looking for a RAV4 bought couldn't touch one for less than 16,000 and that was with 45,000 miles. I have found that Toyota run for ever, but their bodies dent easly. I have always viewed Chrystler Products as junk. Hell I got a brand new Patriot for 16K, its a base line automatic (becouse I will not buy a front wheel drive stick). It has a lot of room. I hope its reliable. The last new vehicle I bought was 02 Ranger and it was junk. After owning 7 Fords I ditched them and went Toyota. But Damm I don't want to pay 25k for a new RAV4. I have manual windows and door locks but it came with cruise, radio, and AC that is all the accerories I want. Less stuff to break
The smooth ride, and alot of room. The gas milage is also great. It takes a little getting used to very little road noise to gage speed.
It has plenty of HP. Just 20 yrs ago you could get a ford 300ci straight 6 with a 160hp, which only got 17 mph at best.
not any at this time since my vehicle only has 80 miles on it
