2005 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
This is my 4th Toyota and it's my favorite. The height of an SUV yet small enough to drive like a car really appealed to me. Has excellent handling, great gas mileage, and is just a pleasure to drive. Owned just for 7 months and already put 12000 miles on it - makes you want to travel! Lots of storage space between fold-down back seats and rear area.
Riding height; great gas mileage; smooth ride; good handling; cargo cover; back door swings open to side - easier to load into; and the expected reliability of a Toyota.
Ease slightly cramped front driver seat, make keyless entry standard (offered but not standard with vehicle).
