The 2001 rav4 is the nicest car I've ever owned.
2001 Toyota RAV4 4dr Auto 4WD (Natl)
I had originally intended to test drive a Camry but when I saw the rav I just had to check that little sporty thing out. It had the additional advantage that my mother had no problem getting into and out of the front or back seats after her hip replacement. It gets great gas mileage, the steering handles nice and tight. The only major problem I have ever had was a problem with the distributor which was totally covered by the Toyota warranty.
