The Toyota Rav4 has been a popular vehicle for years; you could even argue that the Rav4 was the first real crossover utility vehicle (CUV).

We wouldn’t trade living in the Castlegar area for anything. We do have to admit, however, that driving in the Kootenays has its own special set of challenges. Depending on the weather and driving conditions, roads in the Castlegar area can be downright dangerous. That holds especially true in...

The holiday season can be hectic and it’s only natural to forget a few details here and there—where you put the keys, did you get a gift for Uncle Emmet, etc. If you’re one of the lucky ones, spending time with your friends and family is a fun, food-filled experience. When you ar...

Sorry to be the ones to tell you this, folks, but winter is coming. The cold temperatures arrive a little later in Castlegar compared to the rest of the country, but the truth is winter will be here before we know it.

There are plenty of options if you’re looking for a crossover SUV (CUV). All automakers have at least one CUV option, and most have a few for you to choose from. The problem is, though, few CUVs live up to the promises they’re manufacturers hype and advertise. The 2018 Toyota Rav4, howev...
