At 1 year old, I still love my Rav 4. The Barcelona red color is gorgeous. I would buy it again. My parents want one in 4WD for the mountains. Test drove the Mitsubishi Outlander but the Rav 4 blew it away in performance and quality. I ordered the bumper guard to protect the very deep rear bumper and the vinyl cargo tray.
MP3 jack. Cargo space can be configured so many ways. V6 power is awesome. Brakes are great. Back seat leg room is HUGE and adjustable. 2 glove compartments.
JBL stereo has freaked out a couple of times, but works fine currently. Could be more stable on wet/uneven surfaces. The expensive tire cover is VERY difficult to fasten. Came off and was ruined in a car wash. The dark Sport upholstery really shows dirt.
