2006 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
The day I bought our 2006 RAV4, brought heavy wet snow. I momentarily got stuck in the driveway in nine inches of nearly frozen slush. It took the 4WD LOCK switch to get out but it worked like a charm. It snows nearly every day (during winter of course) where we live in Vermont. This vehicle makes you feel like you can go 100 mph on snow and ice covered roads. (no we're not that dumb) Now that it is big enough for us (two carseats) we are happy to be driving a RAV once again. My six foot three inch friend was very comfortable in the back seat behind my driver's seat which was slid all the way back.The 4 cyl. is more engine than anyone would ever need. Get an 8cyl. truck if you want to plow snow
The sure footed handling in snowy, icy conditions. The fact that, with the four of us in the vehicle, I can accelerate up to highway speeds in mere seconds. The styling of the LTD is beautiful.
How about a built in espresso machine? LOL. No improvements necessary.
