I have one and I LOVE It. Drives great and has lots of good storage spots. In fact I have had mine 2 yrs and discovered another lil storage area in my trunk recently lol Gas mileage is also good and being a tiny person there is minimal blindspots which I love (I had a mazda CX7, which drove nice but gas mileage SUCKED BAD and blindspots were AWFUL)
Also my Best friend works for Toyota Service dep for 3 yrs now and said that the Rav4 is their LEAST serviced model (not counting oil changes an stuff) Even older ones rarely have problems, so they are super reliable!
I say go for it. totally worth the investment.
