I just got back from a 1500 + mile trip in my RAV! Started out in poring rain here in Phoenix, then actually got hit with an honest to goodness blizzard going through the mountains into San Diego. I was one car behind a multi-car mini-pileup, all three of the cars involved just slid off the road it was so icy. I had no problems though; brand new Michelin LTX M/S were well worth the cost. Incredible tires, but the steering feel was so much lighter it took some getting used to. I have to say that I was impressed with a Prius in the next lane over, was keeping up despite the weather and the climb. Passed a little Mexican market Chevy hatchback whose occupants where clearly terrified, had their hazard lights on the entire way. Saw lots of cars spinning their tires, or having their back ends break loose. The rest of the trip was cake though, drove up the Pacific Coast Highway to Santa Barbara, then back to Laughlin, NV, and onto Flagstaff. My RAV performed wonderfully, only problem was going up some of the long hills. If I had to slow down I could forget getting back up to speed. Also the seats still are horrible after any time in them. Other than the seats the trip was a blast! Will post photos once I get them downloaded.
