Default New dogmobile!

Some of you know from fb that my car was totalled in a hit and run accident about 2 weeks ago. Well, today I brought home my new vehicle and I looove it, so I thought I'd share here.

I'm still working on a name for the car, but it's a 2011 Toyota RAV4.

Holds crates perfectly, lol! Congrats

Congratulations! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Rav 4. Perfect size...not too big, so it handles well and roomy enough for my crate and other stuff too. It has lots of neat compartments...all that space under the cargo area where a spare tire usually goes in other cars. I know you're going to get lots of enjoyment out of it. Toyotas also have extremely reliable engines. And for their class, get good gas mileage. I even have the 6 cyl. engine and it uses an insignificant amount of increased gas because of it. Very good car. Enjoy!

That looks like my car! Mine's an '08, but the same color and everything. It has been brilliant for me so far.

I REALLY liked the 2009 RAV4 that I test drove when I was car shopping in February. Had I not found my CR-V at a steal of a price, I would have gone with the RAV4.

I was AMAZED at how things fit - that sliding second row is *brilliant* - makes all the difference. I also got mine for a good 2 grand less and with more perks than some of the local big dealers by going through a small place about an hour from me.
