A Good Family Sports Car Safe For Bad Weather — I already mentioned my issues with the car in cons. I'll add one more though -- I had a base that was customized with a premium package (ordered by another customer apparently) only available for sports and limited models. Then, I had leather seats added by the dealer. So although my car is listed as a base, there are no categories that include the options I have to value it properly on websites and even at the dealer.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A very smooth ride, easy to handle for a large car and fun to drive. Gas mileage is good for an SUV. Seats are comfy, front and back. Cargo space is good.

Cons: The headlights could be brighter - they're somewhat confusing. The seat should be powered as a standard option. Also, the paint doesn't hold up well and the body seems to ding easily.

Versatile Road Trip Car — overall nothing wrong with this car. It didn't have a tow hitch on it when we purchased it but i found a used Toyota OEM hitch at a junk yard in Oregon for $90 compared to $3-400. Lots of future upgrades planned for this vehicle. This actually replaced my 2004 Colorado. Miss that truck but had to let her go for our 17 month old.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: low maintenance cost
legroom, i'm 5-11 190lbs and i can stretch my legs all the way out
back seats are big. We have a 17 month old and just upgraded to a toddler car seat and it fits no problem with plenty of room for two more people.  We don't have the third row seat and love the under storage of the cargo space.

Cons: wish it could have a little better gas mileage, we average 19 - 22 miles per gallon. I'm thinking of increasing it's breathing capability and that should help a bit.

Great Car For Erveryday Use And Capability — only negative thing I really have to say is that the seats can be a little firm on a long ride. Overall though its a great everyday car with good power, decent fuel economy, and room for people and cargo, and an excellent reliability factor.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: powerful V6
good fuel economy
4wd for winter and offroad

Cons: seats are a little firm

Excellent Car For It's Size. — I have never had any problems from this car. I have only had to replace the tires. The interior space including head and leg room is huge. The back seats recline and fold flat for more cargo space. It has a sunroof and heated seats. It's a great SUV.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The Toyota Rav4 is a great small SUV. It has plenty of inside room and great cargo space. The handling is excellent up to 90+ mph.

Cons: This model of the Rav4 has the swing gate rather than the lift gate. I like it, but would prefer the lift. Also, it has struts rather than shocks, whick makes for a bumpier ride.

Great Car — THe car was so great we replaced it with a brand new model. At 60k we started having squeeks and rattles that were driving us nuts. The black forest green is pretty but a biatch to keep clean. Really great fuel economy for a 4cyl SUV. Back seat was great. Car seat was a snap to install, although the latch design in the 2013 new body is far better.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Awesome family car

Cons: squeeks and rattles at 60k

Fun And Reliable Little Truck — As I mentioned, the best part about the car is that its fun to drive and very reliable. The only real downside so far has been the relatively poor gas mileage. I assumed that a car like this would have great mileage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Car looks great and is a perfect first car for my son.

Cons: Gas mileage isn't as great as I would have suspected for a car like this.

Good (little) Suv — GREAT in snow, great MPG for what it is, but smaller than it seems. Tons of headroom, decent field of vision while driving. The trunk design in annoying, and the front seats are taller than they need to be, but the width it quite small

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good MPG, nimble, good handling

Cons: poor front seat design, poor latch system,

Rav4, Sturdy, Economical, Luxury Suv That Drives Like A Sports Car — The acceleration is great for a 4 cylinder. I've never had any mechanical issues, ever. The car handles like a sports car and I like that it's high up because I'm on the short side. The look is classy, it's easy to maintain and has a lot of room. It's a great family car with a touch of luxury.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Easy to handle, good power/pickup, safe and roomy.

Cons: Black shows every imperfection, some paint issues with this car, I've read.
