I haven’t had a new vehicle since 1999. This is not a bad thing, just the way it was. When I retired I bought a used truck from my Dad, and it has been great. It saw us through the awful midwest winter, and brought us pulling a trailer to California — about half way across the US.
When I first moved to Okinawa in 2004 I bought a used Toyota RAV 4. It was the 2-door model and I fell in love with it. Up off the road like a truck, but small enough to easily park an get around on the small streets. Three years later I blew the engine and bought a little Honda Life. It too was a great car, but I missed the RAV 4.
Well, no longer folks! See my brand new 2010 Toyota RAV 4 – with ALL the bells and whistles including back up camera and bun warmers. I brought it home 2 weeks ago today.
