I love my RAV4. Comfortable to drive on long trips, loads of room, 45,000 miles and no problems. This is my 2nd RAV4. First one was a 1999,loved it too. When it came time for a new vehicle, I got the new car bug, couldn't wait to buy the newer model, 2007, much quieter ride and larger. Plenty of room for the kids.
I have the limited and love my moon roof, stereo and all the extras. Love the side opening back hatch. Can't understand why some complain about it. Full size spare tire is a must. I don't even mind the spare on the back. Easy for me to get to if needed.
Noticed some bolts that are rusting in the wheel well. Very disappointed in that! Wind noise with the moon roof. Why can't they design something to make it easier to enjoy it and quite the noise? (Still love having it) Would like more options for interior colors, not a fan of all the light colors.
