I'm sure I'm forgetting things.

You get the idea, I've tried to consistently maintain the RAV whenever I had time. I'm very fond of the vehicle, incredible old style Japanese build quality and by far the best traction in slippery conditions of any vehicle I've owned. The light weight, upgraded suspension and AWD make it a pleasure on road and off. It is pretty loud at highway speeds with the knobby tires.

The RAV gets a lot of attention and appreciation from friends and strangers. I regretted selling my first 4.1 and I know I'll regret this one but I need the money and the room.
