Default My grandpa is the best.

My grandpaq had a talk with me out while he was visiting and he just bought so much awesome stuff for us. A "brand new" open box 19" Samsung LCD Monitor, sweet black Logitech keyboard and mouse, new speakers, a new computer for my mom, and best of all, a $10,000 (ten thousand dollar) check as a down payment for a new car for our family. We're looking at a Toyota RAV4.

So needless to say, I am overjoied at the moment.

I like it, really slow though. Especially going uphill. Also, its a bit rocky, you will feel pretty much any bump. I dont know how much they improved over the 9 years, but I guess thats what test drive is for.
I think its more of an opinion type of thing, my mom doesnt like the Rav4.

Get a 4runner.

Anything more than a sedan should have RWD, not this FWD underpowered BS.
