2010 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
After owning my RAV4 for about 6 months, I can report that I am very pleased with it. I live in the south suburbs of Chicago and have about a 25 mile commute each day and average 24.0 mpg. This does require that you go easy on the accelerator. But its nice to know the power is there with the V6 when you need it. I replaced all the factory floor mats with weathertech floor mats. My kids are in a lot of sports, often riding with muddy shoes and it is really easy to dump the weathertech mats out. I also added my own towing bar to use my hitch mounted bike rack. Very easy (4 bolts), and way cheaper to do yourself in lieu of buying from Toyota.
V6, and the storage under the rear cargo area. Its a great place to keep the fold up chairs for sporting events, and is out of the way for everyday use.
Update the interior to a more modern look. Also, the XM radio works great, but the display is abysmal. It cuts off half of the text and I miss seeing live updates of sporting event scores.
