2010 Toyota RAV4 Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased my RAV4 after looking at the Honda CRV, Acura RDX, Kia, Mazda and Hyndai small SUVs. I was previously driving a 2007 BMW X3. I was able to get an excellent price on my purchase after using Edmunds dealer quote program, sales price was even $1500 lower than average displayed. I have driven my RAV4 for 600 miles and am already averaging 23 MPG.
My RAV4 likes are that it comfortable, economical and a little bit sporty. Additionally, the drive train is well balanced with the weight of the vehicle for a 4WD V6 configuration. My likes (coming from a previous BMW)are that I have driven 600 miles without having experienced major quality issues.
My dislikes (coming from a previous BMW)are that the interior seems cheap, leather is thin, plastic surfaces hard, no power seat for the passenger, small sunroof, and no auto door locks. I would also prefer a 4 WD low range option.
