I got rid of my '96 GMC Jimmy and
bought the RAV4. The 4-cyl. has good
acceleration and nimble handling. I'm
dissapointed in the gas mileage--21 mpg
in the city. I've tried switching to
an 89 octane with no better results, so
I'm sticking to 87. The rear headrests

routinely drive alone, I'd suggest
removing them for the clearest view.
I'm tall--5'10" and there is plenty of
leg room on the driver's side.
Annoying rattle behind the glove
compartment at speeds in excess of 30.
Rear seats remove and reinstall with
ease. Nice feature to haul around the
Removable rear seats; moonroof; ample
front seat leg room; removable rear
Rear door opens to the right and is
difficult to manuever around; improve
that gas mileage or be more honest on
the window sticker; Get rid of annoying
