okay one other question then is all wheel drive necessary? Or could I get the RAV4 with just front wheel drive and then just switch for snow tires in the winter? or heck would all weather tires be sufficient. Not sure about NJ, but in colorado for the most part my crappy little car with front wheel drive handled things okay most of the time if I didn't drive like a nimrod.
