2008 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
A very good value for your money. This SUV has a ton of power (269 horsepower), and handles exceptionally. The fun factor CANNOT be matched by any vehicle in its class, and probably not by many out of its class. The mileage is very good too, as mine gets 24mpg over all. The interior is comfortable for five people (I am 6ft 3in) and the third row people can sit reasonably comfortable, depending on how you adjust the second row of seats... but is fantastic if you have a few kids. The quality is very solid, the doors seem heavy when you shut them, and the items that are plastic do not have that 'cheap' feel to them. The controls are well placed and very helpful. I am very satisfied overall.
Power and performance, styling, decent gas mileage, third row seats, bluetooth, dual climate control. Did I mention the monstrous performance - it's an SUV... Sportscar Utility Vehicle!
Better cargo lighting. When sunshine hits the LCD displays, they can be a little hard to see. (Close the moon-roof shade!!)
