Love this car

2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Bought the vehicle used with 15k now at 38K. I keep up with maintenance with battery replacement just done. This has got to be the best vehicle I have every owned, reliable and fun to drive. Just the right size for city driving and parking with excellent gas mileage. I agree with other comments regarding engine underpowered on hills and steep inclines but in total a terrific vehicle. Bottom line I would buy it again. Too bad the new ones are so much larger.
Driving position, control access, fit and finish, reliability.
Put spare tire somewhere else, may be in cargo well, more power for 4 cylinder.
