I did extensive research prior to purchasing this car. I was wise in my decision to buy the RAV4. 1st, it gets great gas mileage. Very important when you're paying $3 a gallon. I get 20 mpg. 2nd, It's a smaller SUV, but, it is very spacious. I managed to carry an 8 ft. treadmill in it. 3rd, it's sporty and SO much fun to drive. And it's really CUTE! It really doesn't look like the SUV's out there. You're higher up than in a car without being in a hulking, gas guzzling SUV. Last, It's a Toyota. It's got a great warranty, and I expect I will be driving it when it's 10 years old or older with more than 100,000 miles on it. I highly recommend this car.
The windows are large, and you really have a good view out of everything around you. Everything is easily accessible and it's spacious and comfortable. The nooks and cubby holes throughout keep my normally messy car neat and tidy. The removable rear seats are GREAT and easy to manuever.
Make it available with leather seats. Other than that, I think it's perfect!
