Is there any other?

1999 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV AWD
Our 4th Toyota. Currently at 520,000 kms. Is a daily driver seven days a week as my wife is a travelling home support worker. Replaced brakes twice, timing belt three times only as good practice. Never needs wheel alignment. Never fails in any weather. Handles like a dream and my wife drives fast. Car handles like a sports car. Traveled once from Nova Scotia to Ottawa and back with 5 occupants and full of luggage not a problem and only $250 of fuel. Would not think twice of leaving for California in this vehicle tomorrow without service before leaaving. I handle a lot of vehicles and this is the best all around auto in the world by price, comfort, appearance, dependability.
Handling, dependability, heater and air conditioning. Little except basic maintenance, oil, brakes, tires. Never needs wheel alignment. Travels through 2ft plus of snow and breaks trail normally when roads are not plowed. Only use wheel lock for steep icy driveways. Great cargo area. Great for a family or a single person.
Cup holders, larger outside mirrors, antenna placement (bad in underground parkades backing up), improve fuel economy.
