I have Toyota Rav 4 which drives really smooth and confortable.
i sold my bmw 3.18 in order to get one of those and i even paid three thousand extra for the same year.
The car has a potentialy stronger engine and pulls very quick when needed.
Although it is getting little bit old now i havent seen any sympthoms yet.
I think the best design of Toyoya Rav 4 is the 2003 2.0 XTR ones. the ones coming after are not nicely designed.
i paid over ten thousand pounds but very happy... (read more)

I really like the Toyota Rav4 2.0 XTR, it drives really well and is very economical. You can tell it's a diesel when you start it up but it's very civilised after that.

I do 30,000 miles a year. Had a Volvo S40 before this and thought that was the most comfortable car I've had - however with the Rav 4 I'm even less tired. Compared with the Volvo this is quieter. Engine cruises along nicely. You're sitting higher so don't get as much rain/muck/dirt thrown at the window from other vehicles. Plus I use it in the odd field with 4x4 so very practical and car like. I've owned Audi's, BMW's, Volvo's and a whole load of Fords/Vauxhalls - this is the best by far.... (read more)
