Considering the 2006 RAV4 has only been out for 3 months, I doubt if there will be much effect on resale value between 2006 and 2007. If you want to wait for a 2007 over a 2006 in order to avoid "first year problems", look at what the repair rates were in Consumer Reports for the first year RAV4 (1997)as of 2006. They are near perfect. I doubt if the 2007 will have much difference than the 2006 except for minor styling difference. I've ordered a 2006 and plan on keeping it for at least 10 years, so I'm not concerned with re-sale value differences between 2006 and 2007 models. The 2006 looks good enough for me. I'm getting tired of waiting for it. It's been 7 weeks so far. It should be here in about 2 weeks, a Flint Mica, Sport V6 4WD with a sunroof and auto dimming mirror.
I noticed the 2007 Camrys are now on the dealer lot. Whatever happened to waiting till September to release the next year?

After months of following this forum, I finally bought my rav4 V6 sport tonight. It's a 4X2, Flint Mica color which we think is indeed nice. It has JBL 9 speakers, Cargo net with poles, side airbags (Curtain airbags), Daytime running light, Slide moonroof, and floor mat. The out-of-door price is $27660. What do you guys think, is it a good price
The deal is in Southern CA. The sales person is very nice. One thing I am still not clear is that is the spare tire cover removeable simply by pulling it?

Relax, buy it, enjoy it! I am waiting till Nov because that is when my present lease ends and I do not need a new car now. If I did I would have bought a RAV4 by now.

We're looking to buy a 2006 V6 2WD either base or limited with third row seat, tow package, and air bags. The Toyota dealer here in Dallas said no dealer in the GUlf States Area is ever going to get a RAV4 equipped with those three things (3rd seat, tow, and side air bags). Has anyone seen a car like this on the lot?
I don't have 3 months to wait if I order it. Any chance it'd eb here quicker than that?

EXACTLY the problem we've been having in DFW. Sport City Toyota on LBJ told that tow package with third row seat wasn't available to GUlf States Toyota (TX, OK, LA, MS, AR) I believe those are the five states...
I'm looking to purchase out of the area or order but I need the vehicle before the end of June.

Congrats Johan1! I think that's a pretty good deal you got yourself. I bought mine last saturday at the Garden Grove dealer. Which dealership did you get yours at?

For the Midwest Region, the only way the 3rd row limiteds come is w/ the tow package, air bags, and moonroof. They may not be sitting on the lots, but a dealer found me one that has just been built but not shipped and it's supposed to arrive any day, which would be about 20 days from when I "ordered" it. You may have to be flexible on color.

If you go to the Toyota web site, enter your zip code and do a "build and buy" on the model you want, you will see what options you can get in your region. If they are not listed your probably never going to get one unless the dealer finds it in another region and is willing to bring it in for you. Or you can buy it from another region if you find one yourself and drive it home.
