Traded in an Explorer for the RAV4 and haven't regretted it. Amazing cargo space with the back seat down, and pretty good with it up too. The 4 cylinder engine is very peppy, although with my lead foot and in-town driving I average 21mpg. No mechanical or electrical problems at 33,000 miles. For a single person, couple, or small family its great.
Exterior looks; cargo room; peppy 4 cylinder.
Seat/steering wheel/gas pedal relationship off, like it is in Corollas. Steering wheel too far away when seat adjusted right for gas pedal.
