When I began looking for a new vehicle, I knew I wanted a small SUV. After researching, I put the RAV4 towards the bottom of my list because I wasn't a fan of the spare tire on the back. Once I test drove it, it went straight to the top of my list. I love all the storage room and how easy the back seats fold down flat. After a month, I still love the ride. I don't do a whole lot of driving but so far the gas mileage is what I expected. The tire on the back doesn't even bother me and I figure that if I'm by myself and get a flat, it'll be easier getting the tire off the back than trying to dig it out from under the car.
