Love the car in terms of the inter/exter design and handling. Hate the price of
the car and initial quality. Maybe I care too much about the quality, but that is
one of the major reasons I bought the car. It is not fun to bring car back to
dealer even for warranty services. In addtion, this car really need a V6
engine to be perfect although 4 handles majority of the task really well. Hum,
maybe I should n't make that wish since mpg was the other reason I bought
RAV4. Or I should be smart enough to get a Hightlander or RX300. Anyway,
compare to my old buddy - 94 camry, RAV4 is much better.
Small enough to drive/park in the city. Big enough to handle the load when
go to Home Depot/IKEA. Safe enough to go anywhere ever in the 6 inch
snow. Tall enough to enjoy the view even in the traffic.
Need imporvement in initial quality (no rattle, no squeaking please). Need to
reduce the engine and road noice somewhat. Yeah, where is my 6CD
changer that this price?
