Hello All.

We are new to this forum. We just purchased a 2016 RAV4 XLE AWD a few days ago. We like it so far but it's really different than where we came from. It's my wife's car and previously she drove a 2002 Nissan Xterra. The RAV4 feels and looks very different than the Xterra and my wife didn't like the RAV4's at first (compared to her Xterra) but it grew on her and I think it will suit our needs and that's what we ended up with. The Xterra was a fairly crude off-roading truck while the RAV4 feels much more civilized. The improved gas mileage over the Xterra is nice.

This looks like an active forum!

Welcome! My wife test-drove an Xterra - it was truck-chassis based and the ride was quite rough, more suited for off-roading than for daily commuting on paved roads, so she opted out. Your wife may be put to sleep by the comparatively mild ride of her new RAV!

Haha! Yeah, the RAV4 will take some getting used to after driving her Xterra for 14 years. She grew up a "truck girl" so the RAV4 is a bit different.
