I traded in a 2000 sports car for the
Rav 4 because my previous Toyotas
(3 of them) held up very well and kept
their value (the sports car was
already having engine problems and
depreciated almost 50%!).
The car/truck handles very well (tight
turns), but I found the Rav's 4
cylinder engine a bit sluggish.
Not very fun to drive on the highway
when you're trying to change lanes or
get on. However, city driving is a bit
I love the ability to make tight turns.
The moon roof is a must in Texas.
The seats are very comfortable.
The 5th door (in the back) is great for
loading and unloading stuff.
How about a Rav-6 or a turbo Rav!
