"2008 Rav4 Sport with V6 and 5AT. Easy 5-star! Very reliable, 60k miles in 3 years without ANY issues other than several dealer recalls. Also very spacious and I?m having very hard time trying to find comparable replacement. 3.5L V6 is strong and fast, and we get 20+ average mpg with 26mpg why. Really have no complaints. Overall, extremely good value for the money paid. I?ve looked at some more luxurious small SUVs (RX350, RDX, X3, Q5, FX35), and they are nice and definitely offer more luxury, however much less practicality for day to day use. "
