4500 Mile Trip
Pros: mileage and storeage space
Cons: back doorJust got back from a 4500 mile trip in our Toyota RAV4 4WD. Drove thru rain and hail, high winds, up and down many many mountain ranges, and crossed desserts. Only had one problem , a nail in a tire. Our RAV operated and handled beautifully.
