It's been exactly one year since we brought the Rav4 home and I still love it as much today as I did when we first got it. I have never been in love with a car before, but I love my car. I've always been completely ambivalent about a vehicle, I mean, who the hell really cares?? But I love this car. I still get sad on days that I don't go somewhere and don't get to drive it. I can honestly say that our lives have been made better and more convenient because of it.
It was incredible this winter. In my old car, I would regularly spin out, slide off the road, etc etc. But in this car, I only slipped ONCE this winter.... and it was the tiniest little eeeek. That in itself is a huge load off my mind, to not fear for my life anytime I need to go somewhere in the winter.
It's also fantastic to not have to fold myself up like a sardine to fit into it, and that is still something that I notice every single time I get into it. I can just slide right in and have plenty of leg room and not have my knees hitting the steering wheel. Love that. And it's EXTRA good for being massively pregnant, nice and comfortable (as much as anything can be, anyway).
