Purchased the RAV new in 1997. Had the brakes replaced twice, timing belt once as routine and nothing else besides ongoing maintenance. Drives beautifully in all weather conditions. I'm a small person (5"2") and love the way I can see and maneuver in this SUV. Gas mileage is great. At over 208,000 miles, it continues to be quiet, smooth and very dependable. I will drive it until it dies! I'd purchase another RAV in a heartbeat.
Overall size and comfortable seating. Versatility when back seats are moved for hauling small loads. Fun to drive!
