Wanted small SUV and test drove most of
them. None compared to the RAV4 - it
handles like a car but drives like a
SUV without the noise and it is awesome
in heavy snow. The 2004 model is well
designed and looks different to all
those other "standard" SUV styles. At
that price and with all the features,
why would anyone want to spend $10 to
$20 thousand more just to have a big
monster. Get the L package and you have
Style and handling - particularly in
snow. The comfort was a bonus. Sound
system rocks !
