"Keep cool in the HEAT"

I bought my rav4 Heat Estate in 2000. I have had a variety of cars in the past and had always been a "if it's got 4 wheels and it goes, who cares" type of girl. I'm now a convert, if it's not a Rav I'm not interested.

The driving position is great. Good all round vision, your high up and have a 'sit up and beg' type view. I've now got over 100,000 miles on it and I've never had any trouble, except for a lorry taking the back end out whilst parked outside my child's school. However Toyota won marks here too, replacing the damage at what I considered a reasonable cost and more importantly without having to wait days, if not weeks, for the part to appear.

It's great for driving around town, on school runs or off roading with the dogs. Its nippy, got great road handling and not bad on fuel consumption. Admittedly, it's not really 4 wheel enough for my husband, who'd prefer a Grand Cherokee Jeep, but even he prefers it to his company saloon.

With the backseats down I've transported doors, beds and sofa's in the back, not to mention an unholy amount of children.

Compared to other cars I've been in, particularly Fords, the airconditioning is good and quickly effective.

If you want to buy a good all round vehicle at a resaonable price and with reasonable upkeep costs as far as I'm concerned you can't go wrong. This car will be going to my son this year, I've already ordered my new car and yes...it's a Rav.

    I tried one but found it rather cramped compared to my CR-V.
