I have driven previous Rav4s with 4 cyl engines. When I test drove the V6, I was sold instantly. This car is a dream, as if someone custom made it for you! It's everything you expect, and it flies! If you like a race car feel and performance and can handle the pick-up, this is for you. Conservative drivers will not like this car. This should be a major hit for the young and the young at heart who can afford a nice SUV.
Powerful engine, smooth ride, excellent auto transmission, great interior, JBL sound system. This SUV rocks.
The only negative I see is the old style antenna! It should be either built-in to the windshield or at the least retract down. It's the first thing I can see some car vandal will break-off!
