    Hey Brandon!

    I just recently bought Rav4 Hybrid Limited. Love it! It was between that and CRV. The price was the same, but you get more features and better milage. My best so far is 43 mpg ( short trip in the city, but still pretty great).


  2. Kevin Mitchell

    I Love my RAV4! We bought it certified preowned with 80k miles. Whoever owned it previously took great care of it. Practically like a new vehicle! It’s now got 122k and no issues so far. In much better shape at 122k than my Ford Focus was at 50k.

  3. Bryan Wilson

    @Brandon Turner I’ve owned Toyotas my entire life. 2002 Tacoma that I have literally driven through ponds up to the windows and still works at mile 175,000. Recently bought a 2011 RAV4 that is just amazing to drive. Would purchase again and again.
