I'm very displeased with the quality of this vehicle. I had numerous small problems that required several trips to the dealership, plus at only 60K, the AC compressor needs to be replaced (not covered by the warrenty). That and the fact that it is extremely underpowered, very noisy on the highway, and the back seats are very difficult to take in and out. It is very good on gas, rides and handles great in the city and has ample cargo room.
I give the Rav-4 raves for the interior cargo capacity. People have been amazed at what I can fit in the back with the seats removed. That and great gas mileage.
Most addressed in the 2007 update with a V6 option, more room, and fold flat seats.
