2016 Toyota RAV4Becky O'Toole - Mays landing, NJ02/21/2016
This car drives great, handles well in the rain and the light snow I experienced so far. I feel very confident driving this car with my kids in it. Its a great family car tons of room in the cargo area. I can fit the kids big tire wagon, stroller and other things. Also the backseat isn't bad either, i wouldn't mind seating back there on a roadtrip. And the look is very sporty, i dont feel like its a mommy car or I would of never bought it. Lol Overall I love this car.
Great price for the quality. Love the car!

-Trunk is side opening. I'm short, and can't reach most liftgates to close them.
-Trunk space has large hidden compartments for storage. GREAT plus to having the spare tire on the back.
-Lower cabin noise and better acceleration than my old car had.
-Entertainment system is very basic, but it has USB/AUX and Bluetooth.
-Seat adjustment is great! I'm under 5 feet tall, and my husband's over 6 feet tall. We both can sit comfortably.
-No automatic seats or seat memory.
-Only a 12 gallon gas tank. I have to refill about every week.

Toyota reliability in a very comfortable package. Great gas mileage. Lots of head room for anyone tall (I am 6' 4" and have ample head room). The rear seat leg room is amazing too. Even someone like me can sit in the back seats without having their knees crushed when the front seats are pushed all the way back.
