Nice, Safe, Fun And Reliable — This car is very convenient with a nice look and character. It has extremely low maintenance cost as there has never been any issue. Also gas costs are much lower than my other SUV. Handling is very easy and driving is very stable. Kids love it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very convenient car with a nice look and character. Very low maintenance cost and low gas costs. Very easy handling and very stable driving. Kids love it.

Cons: A bit small for 5 adults. More comfortable when there are 1 or 2 kids out of the 3 back seat passengers.

Buy It. — Good pick up, comfortable ride. Very nice to sit in because it is clean and simple. Nice finish and i love the heated seats. We haven't put a cent into the car besides regular maintenance. Very easy to drive, small overhangs mean easy parking.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun and cute. It's also quite utilitarian.

Cons: The only thing i dislike is the road noise in the back. I have to put sound dampeners on the rear wheel wells.

My Car — The Toyota RAV4 is one of the most funkiest and gorgeous compact SUV's that came out. I like the whole package, but I wish that it had more bling. It is fast, agile, and has good brakes. The build quality is great, off course its a toyota.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It smells great

Cons: Space

Rav4 — the acceleration is terrible, this is a commuter car has AWD it's a toyota..... this is a great midget mobile -for the shorty's out there... (I'm 5'6" and if I were taller this RAV4 would not be for me) I don't sit close to the steering wheel which can cause less leg room for backseat riders....this RAV4 has adjustable rear seats they slide back and recline back which is great when I take my dogs hiking I can fold them down or take them out...easy to maneuver

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: interior reclining rear seats rear door swings open, easy for dogs to get in.

Cons: acceleration is SLOW, hard clutch, is not for anyone with knee issues.

Resale Value Champion — I lke the size and the performance, very good space inside the cockpit is logic and the comsumption is aceptable, good quality overall and good resale value is very important for the down of the new car, only thing i never understand is the center seatbelt on the roof and the tools under the pass seat

Pros: Agile

Cons: to plastic

Rav4 — This is my wife's Rav4 - the "soccer" mom's baby transportation. The most off-road we've done is going over the gutters. We've added nudge bar to push off the annoying Canberra kangaroos and nudge other cars in the car parks. It has lots of rooms and great handling for a 4WD.

Pros: Ground clearance, handling

Cons: Can do with more room for passengers

Rav 4 — The quality of the car is only ok but for someone average this is good enough.Performance factor however is quite good with fuel consumption not very high.Cost of owning the car is also relatively cheap and it is a very fun car to drive on the road.However the appearance of the car is only minor and cannot be compared to other higher class cars.

Pros: Cheap,Fun,Good performance and good maintainance

Cons: Build quality
