Holy Crap this thing is fast!!

With that said, Im totally happy with my new RAV purchase! I preordered on Jan 2nd, shortly after the announcement, and have been patiently waiting until finally receiving the call 2 nights ago. When I arrived at the dealership it was parked outfront waiting for me to pick it up. I was blown away by the color (Flint Mica) and it was perfect. The interior was amazing as well! This was the Sport V6 4x4 version, so I had to wait a bit before it finally arrived.

After test driving I was very impressed with the speed and pickup of the 6, much more notceable than the 4 (that I originally tested).

I basically love everything about the car, but have only driven it for about 45 minutes total so far, so obviously I dont know any of the kinks or flaws yet, but Im hoping there arent many.

The dealer simply refused to budge even 200.00 on the MSRP of the car, which I was pissed about because this was my 3rd new Toyota that I purchased from that dealership, and I wasnt as impressed with the service as I was 4 years ago when we bought our Camry. That said, our salesman was very nice and friendly, and not pushy at all. I also made out pretty well on my trade-in, getting 500 more than I was expecting. Final price of the car was MSRP, 28300, and got the extended warranty to 5y/60k for 490 more (started at 690 and I kept saying No I wasnt interested until they finally came to 490, then I agreed - so they got me there). Put another 10.5k down so Im only financing 9500ish so my payments are 201/mo (with 6.99% I believe).

Glad to finally be a member of the site, and enjoying my new ride! (will post pics soon)

Finally a congrats, jkat. Actually you've been a member here long before taking delivery. Only difference is that you can now post personal experiences about your new RAV!

You got a decent deal on the ext. warranty so hopefully it helped a bit with your overall deal.
