I've wanted an SUV for a few years, but I didn't know if I could handle an SUV, being only a little over five feet tall and driving only small cars. The Toyota Rav4 is the one I settled on once it was time for the big purchase. Driving a Rav4 is like driving on a cloud. It handles smoothly, maneuvers effortlessly and is a joy to drive. I would recommend the RAV4 to anyone contemplating that first time SUV purchase.
I love that even though it's considered a compact SUV, the rear seats are removable as in the bigger SUV's and vans for more cargo room. Also, I love watching the rear wiper do it's thing in rainy weather.
Personally, I don't feel I need to make any improvements. For me, my RAV4 is the greatest thing as I have it right now.
