Great around-town car!

2002 Toyota RAV4 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I've had my all wheel drive RAV4 for one year now. Only problem I had was a check engine light came on once, took it in to the dealership and it was corrected (nothing serious). It is a great car for errands, city driving and shorter trips. I've taken it on one long trip and wished it had an 8-way power adjustable seat with more support, and more insulation against road noise. No complaints about interior rattles except for the lock on the glove box, sometimes buzzes.
I love the styling, car-like ride, nimble handling, high driving position and all wheel drive capabilities and the size of the car, especially when parallel parking.
Wished it had better (more adjustable) seats, a storage compartment under the passenger seat (or somewhere convenient upfront for a handbag), more insulation against road noise and arm rests. Would be nice if ABS and rear tinted windows were standard.
