I have always wanted one and when I got rid of my echo I decided to go ahead and buy a rav4. I am 5'6 and I love it. The inside is roomy the radio does sound like its wheezing when the ipod is hooked up but oh well. I love this car and wouldn't trade it for anything. The lights in the trunk don't bother me and my seats do fold completely flat.
The storage in the trunk its great for cold items, the ipod jack is hidden so you don't have to have your ipod on display.
