2008 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I bought the 2008 4 cyl. Limited. Best looking small SUV as far as I'm concerned. Lots of cargo space. Tremendous functionality. It has the smoothest ride I've ever felt in any truck style vehicle. If someone tells you it has a harsh or rough ride, they haven't driven it. I have many steep hills where I live and it tackles them with little effort. I'll update this in 3 months.
Cargo space and large hidden compartment space. Lots of room for a small truck. Decent gas mileage.
That rear door. I understand why they made it open horizontally rather than vertically due to the spare tire weight, but is the only inconvenience so far.
