Excellent little SUV, needs about 30HP

Vehicle

2001 Toyota RAV4 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The RAV4 is the first and best in its class. Others are overly large (Who needs a V6 in an SUV this small? If I need a V6, I'll probably want a bigger SUV) or too trucklike and rough around the edges (Blazer Sport, Sportage, Grand Vitara, Tracker, Rodeo Sport, Liberty, Wrangler). The overly- glorified CR-V can be best described as either a very short Volvo or a boxy minivan. The Element? What were they thinking???

Favorite Features

Great styling, just-right size, zippy performance, amazing car-like handling, Toyota reliability.

Suggested Improvements

Needs a little more power (but hopefully not at the expense of mileage), especially at grade and highway speeds. Would be nice to have the factory-optioned navigation system and electronic climate control that you can get in Japan.
