I researched extensively before going
to test drive Escapes, Liberty's & the
RAV4. Right after driving the RAV4, I
bought it. The heck with the others!
I think the engine is peppy enough &
the gas mileage is comparable to the
Ford Focus I traded. It rides good and
looks stylish, sporty and cute. I now
have a lot more room and the first day
I made sure it could cross the creek to
my favorite campsite! No problem!
Sitting up high, moonroof, spacious
interior with lots of places to put my
stuff, handles great, gas mileage is
awesome, rear seats that can be removed
for more camping stuff & fishing poles.
Keyless entry should come with power
package, speedometer in 10 mph
increments rather than 20 (always have
to double check my speed), and a way to
lock rear door after unloading cargo.
