This is my second RAV4 and I didn't hesitate to buy it. Though I did enjoy my prior Base model V6 this time I went with a Sport model 4cyl. This is my top choice for its reliability, space, look, 4x4 option, moderate price and most of all safety. This 2nd vehicle came about after an accident resulting in a total loss, but I can not speak enough about the structural integrity this vehicle retained under duress.
Exterior design. Safety. Car ride combined with SUV function.
Exterior wind pressure noise with the rear windows is a bit much. It would be great if they made it possible to lower the back door window.
