Let's take this thread over to LBYM... just kidding ;-)I have a Toyota Rav4, what I refer to as the red-headed step-child of the Toyota line. It doesn't get the attention that the other models get or that I think it deserves. It's a small SUV, based in a car chasis. Mine's a 4 door, which is the only the way to go with the carseat factor. It can actually be used in a light truck capacity. It has about 18 inches of ground clearance, so that if you wanted to take it over the river and though the woods, you can. It's been very reliable and low mainteneance in the three years I've had it. In '98 it was around $20,000 with a great warranty. I have the 5 speed 2wd with keyless entry, alarm, electric windows and locks and CD player. It blue-books around 15K after 3 years.I like that it has the space to take some stuff with you, but it isn't so big that it's hard to park or manuever. Also, the back seats fold down to increase the cargo space. I particularly like that the back seats fold down in two sections so that you can leave one side for seating and fold the other for cargo. New ones still run around $22K. They've updated the body and options, but it's still a good solid small SUV. I love my Rav4 and would highly reccommend a Toyota. I've heard good things about all the larger SUV's as well. -KellyLoves cars. Saw a yellow Ferrari Modna yesterday. *sigh* Not a family car!
