Currently have 7,000 miles on my RAV.
I particularly appreciate the power and smoothness of the V-6.
As one reviewer noted, the accelerator pedal is a bit sensitive, but you readily adjust to that.
I consider fuel economy to be pretty good--23MPG in daily driving, 30 on the highway, at least if you're not trying to pass everybody on the road.
I would think the V-6 would be a must for anyone towing or carrying heavy loads.
And it's going away on the 2013 model.
(Of course, there is always the Highlander, if you want something much bigger and more pricey.)
Hidden storage under the wayback.
This is where the spare resides on most vehicles.
A more upscale look to the interior, especially since the Limited is the most expensive model.
This has supposedly been remedied on the 2013 model.
