I have had this car since 2003...it is manual shift though.
It is peppy and I can fit both my kids in it and all of our junk.
It is reliable and I have no concerns whatsoever.
The only issue I have had is had to replace the breaks. Love the car so much that we looked this year to replace our mini-van with something more efficient and considered another RAV-4 (ended up going with the corolla after really thinking do we need two mini-SUVs????)
