We needed a vehicle with a large enough rear seat for a child seat and an infant seat and easy to get the kids in and out of. This RAV-4 is the perfect choice. This vehicle seems small on the outside, but it has unbelievable space inside. The cargo area (without 3rd row seats) is huge and the 2 storage bins under the floor are a bonus. Rear seats truly fold flat unlike many others. This one is a V6 Limited with all options except navigation. This thing is very fast and the fuel economy is pretty amazing. We get 24-25mpg on local driving and we've seen 32 mpg on the road. A very versatile vehicle for an active family.
V6 power, smooth transmission, great fuel economy, inside space, easy access, Toyota reliability.
I don't care for the outside mounted spare but it does add inside space. Others have said the front seats lack thigh support for taller persons and I agree. Electric power steering lacks "feel".
