I got my Rav4 yesterday, 2008 4 cyl base model with roof rail and 17" wheels. Today I added 250 miles on it through moutain roads and freeways. The 4 cyl responses quick and provides sufficient power. The enginee is not quiet but sounds sporty. Handling is fantastic for a SUV at this price. It actiually handels much better than many sedans i drove. The ride is a little bit stiff tho. I think it's the trade off of good handling. Interior space is bright, roomy and functional, the design and materials are nice but not the best in class. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
Elegant and tougher (than CRV/Rogue) look. Impressive handling. Plenty storage space and fold down seat. Huge side-opening back door and back mounted spair tire.
Add GPS as option. Make premium audio and blue tooth avilable to all trims. Engine immobilizer should be standrade. Back door should swing to left?
