I've owned the '96, '01, and '06 RAV 4's and loved everyone of them. Got over 100K out of each with no problems whatsoever. This '13 I just bought looks like it will beat all the others. It's more comfortable, has more guts, looks sharper, and rides quieter than the previous generations. The ride is a little stiff but I feel very secure in this vehicle. We also own a '12 Sienna, and this RAV is just as comfortable. I'm looking forward to many years of driving pleasure with this baby.
Quieter, more responsive handling than previous generation RAV's. Love the Bluetooth and backup camera which are standard. Interior is really sharp, classy. The 2.5 4 cylinder has plenty of guts getting me on the freeway with no problem. Yipeee, Toyota finally got rid of the rear external spare tire. This vehicle looks and rides great.
