I like the 2007 RAV4. Inside, it is a very clean design with no frills. Minor objections:
- Power for MP3 player connected to car battery, which introduces high pitches whirling noises into the audio. Not sure if that is a function of the MP3 player's electronics or the car. Wherever the solution lies it would probably be an excellent business. Update: This is perfectly solved by a PAC SNI-1/3.5 Noise Filter sold by Crutchfield.
- The seat belt alarms are facist, especially the passenger side alarm. If I put a heavy backpack on that seat, after about 20 seconds it is bound to continuously alert me to the fact that my backpack is ostentatiously refusing to buckle itself up. Feh.
