    Was that before they enlarged it? Originally, it was a jacked-up Camry.

    Nice vehicle.

    Yeah. The '13 was the final year of that style, I believe. The wallet didn't allow me to go newer.

    That's the thing about Toyota. You have to reach deep for one. My daughter got a '13 Rav 4 and loves it. It's smaller but it gets excellent gas mileage.

    The Highlander, not so much. I get around 18-20. But it has power and can tow if I need it.

    I think the RAV4 has been enlarged to take the place of the original Highlander.


    My brother always wanted a Jeep... finally bought one, then traded it 2 years later for my Dad's 5yo 2002 Highlander.

    Also traded their Grand Cherokee for a Sierra and proclaimed "Good riddance..."

    Jeep sucks.

    My play toy is a '84 Jeep CJ7. I've had it since I was 25. So I wanted to get a Grand Cherokee when I started my search last year. I quickly got over that after reading up on them.

    I had an Explorer some 15 years ago. It wasn't bad but the ratings I saw on the '13-'14 were mixed.

    We've had our share of Hondas over the years too. They're hard to beat as reliable transportation. The wife is looking at CRVs now.

    Sister in law has had a CRV going on 9 months now, she seems to love it

    of course she doesnt know jack **** when it comes to cars, hence the CRV, but Honda does cars right (reliability/longevity)

    But dang. Honda CR-V really is killing it in the rankings.

    #1 Compact SUV
    #1 Subcompact SUV
    #1 Crossover SUV
    #1 SUV with 2 rows

    @TitanJeff how does the CRV drive? No local Honda dealer here.

    Test drove the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Very impressed with that.
