thinking of buying a 06 rav4..... am concerned about the acess, or lack of, to the rear w/ the door swinging outward.....should this be a concern?
Quite true, specially when pulling in inside my garage/laundry room/gym/workshop. If I need to get things from the back and the garage door is closed, I need to either open the garage door then open the swing door or fold the rear seat down and crawl. It's a good thing those things fold down real easy. I do have to decide ahead of time to either park rear-in or front-in first. No biggie really.bmorton said:... it does need a little extra thought on certain occasions as to how you want to park it.
bcbob said:I wouldn't doubt it, kc456. But let me ask all 4.3 owners w/o 3rd row seats: what would you rather have: the spare on the rear door allowing the huge storage space under the cargo deck or giving up the storage space to get the tire off the read door?
Apparently some countries have no spare but rather run-flat tires instead. I wonder if that would ever come to NA? Seems there's no good place to put that darn spare!
