Four wheel drive and great on gas.

My car is low mileage and easy to maintain. . It roomy it sits 5 and the cargo space is just fine for me. I have taken very heavy loads including camping equipment. And the gas is also perfect. $40 gives me a full tank. Easy to find parking. It runs really good. It struggles a bit going up hill but its a champ. I really never had to invest a lot of money to maintain it. As long as you keep up the basic tune up and rotate the tires and do the brakes. . This has been the best car ever for me.

My RAV4 is a reliable, basic mode of transportation

I bought my 2003 RAV4 in 2015 with 110,000 miles. It was my 3rd RAV4. I know they are reliable. It is a basic car with no bells or whistles but with 3 kids in college that is what I could afford. I am sure my next car will also be a Toyota. I do have to say that the computer went out about 8 months after I bought it, 120000 miles. That was a big expense and a problem with that year's model. Other than that, I have done regular maintenance work to it.

SUV 4 door plus 4 wheel drive, good cold air.

I love that it is 4 wheel drive and 4 door, there is enough room in the cargo space to haul all my shopping purchases. I can fold away the two split seats and have enough space to throw a sleeping bag in and spend the night just like it is a tent. It also has a luggage rack that gives more hauling ability. It is a six cylinder which has great gas performance. It.
