2012 Toyota RAV4 Base 4WD Review
GuruWTM8R says:
Had I to do it again, Id aim for a base model with 4WD and an Upgrade Value package (plus optional 5 speed). The V6 is simply overkill, and I now regard it as a liability on mileage and possible unexpected acceleration. The base model is perfectly servicable. And having had a first generation Rav4 for 20 years, there just isnt anything more that is actually required. It is absolutely reliable, low maintenance, fun to drive, flexible in its uses. I will note that Toyota engineers appear to not have a life. They have removed all the places to connect outdoor gear (like canoes or a Yakima rack); I will need to modify the car to add a tie-down or a rack system. Stupid.
