I'm currently in the market for a new vehicle. Initially, I was trying to decide between the Honda CRV and the RAV4 but I decided on the RAV4. The only issue I have with the RAV4 is that it is smaller than the CRV......but I hear the 2006 is bigger (and better?). I want a car NOW but the selection of 2005 RAV's are limited (looking for a fully loaded, limited edition in white or black). I'm thinking of waiting for the 2006's but from everything I've heard, unless you get a V6, it may be sluggish! Fuel economy is one of the reasons I'm not looking at something bigger so I don't think I want the V6!
I'm confused! Can someone help?! Should I go with the 2005 (smaller) RAV4 or a 4cylinder 2006? Also, I can't find a thing in regard to pricing for the 2006 models. Will they be around the same price as a 2005? Right now, I know I can get a fully loaded Limited edition 2005 for about $25-$26.
Any thoughts/suggestions/opinions would be GREATLY appreciated!! HELP (please)
