I fix them for a living.
The Rav4 is a good,solid choice.There are no major tech service bulletins or recalls on them.
If you choose the V6 option,you're getting the 270HP Avalon engine.You won't see this advertized but the V6 Rav4 is the fastest vehicle Toyota makes.
We are in the market for a new vehicle. The Toyota RAV4 is at the top of our list. Is there anyone out there who may own a late-model RAV4 and would be kind enough to share their experiences with the vehicle. Consumer Reports and the dealer info can only go so far...
