I know that this is a gen. 4 thread, but in general I like my '11 RAV4 V6 Base model with the Enhanced Value package and towing prep. Having said that, the seats are uncomfortable for long drives and I wish that there were more steering wheel adjustment available as I can't get it high enough, and even at max. adjustment the wheel is too close. Also, while the V6 is fast and gets good mileage in highway driving, in town the mileage is terrible. The gearbox downshifts if it even smells that an uphill grade is near when it could easily pull the grade in 5th (top) gear.
If Hyundai begins making the Santa Cruz pickup and equips it with the rumored 190 HP, 300 ft./lb. torque diesel engine and manual gearbox options I probably will let my wife have the RAV and trade in her older CR-V for the Santa Cruz.
