This is just the right car for us. We live somewhat out in the country and have a large pickup that doesn't get good gas mileage, but carries big stuff. We need another car that gets good mileage but has adequate room for our stuff when we go into the town for monthly shopping.
2006 Toyota RAV4thereverendmom - , 11/04/2013
This older model had less than 15,000 miles when I got it so I was thrilled to find it! I have a profession that sometimes has me driving to visit folks in hospitals some distance away. I usually buy a car a keep it a long time. So I look for something that I can "drive the wheels off of." A 2006 Toyota Rav4 that had such low mileage to begin it's journey with me was just what I was wanting! The only disappointment so far is that it has underperformed what I expected and what was on the window sticker for the gas mileage. But it is on par with the 2001 Toyota 4Runner that I had to replace after 268,000+ miles. So it's all good! But if anyone has tips for better gas mileage, I'll take them :)
