I have owned several vehicles as well
as other Toyotas and I can honestly say
that the 2003 RAV4 S model is the most
fun to drive. True, it is not a
powerhouse, but it is not designed to
be. The 4 wheel drive is flawless and
I could not tell the difference between
it and the 2 wheel drive model. The
interior is the usual Toyota quality
and the exterior is awesome.
Exterior looks, 4 wheel drive, great
Maybe a V6 option for those that prefer
such things. I love it "as is".
