Bought the car after being in a wreck.. my chevy volt was totaled by the drunk driver that hit me .. looked for a little bigger car with four wheel or awd and fell in love with the rav 4 ... thank you Toyota for making my Christmas wish come true !!!
You pay for what you get. Great quality for the price. You can pay less for an suv but you will not get the build, ride or satisfaction compared to other import brands. Most companies take something of quality out of there cars in order to get the lower price. Honda is a good example of taking quality out but basically keeping the car the same with little improvement. They may seem different but there foxes with sheeps clothing. The manufacture says they have to break completely before they consider fixing it regardless if it has few miles or not. Toyota stands behind what they sell. Don't buy anything else, consider only leasing them if you don't want to be sorry.
RAV4 is well rated SUV. RAV4 Platinum is well-equipment SUV and fun to drive. I recommend that you purchase carpeted car mat package or all weather mat package which is one of the only package add ons that are offered since so much is standard. I also recommend the cargo net since it helps from items falling out of rear when lift gate is opened. The cargo cover is also a great option and it is retractable cover that is easy to use.
