I turned in my AWD GMC Acadia and leased my Rav4 Sport w/V6 in January and just love it. Had two major snow storms (20-24"+) just after purchase and this thing cuts right through the snow with no problems. AWD system performs much better than my old GMCs did. V6 engine is great. Sports Appearance Pkg. is great also as I can't stand having a spare tire on the back door. Mileage on the Hwy is 25 mpg about 19 mpg around town. Very roomy for a small SUV.
Wish I had bought with leather and power seats (more comfortable and flexible). Manual seat adjustment is OK but not great. Took me a while to get used to the seating system. Tilt wheel could "tilt" more. Definitely rides a little rougher than a larger crossover SUV but that is to be expected.
