2015 RAV4 is better than I had hoped for
March 17, 2019
We got a 2015 Limited because it had a few extra niceties we wanted. Our last 3 purchases, all used, have had high-end trims. It is much more cost effective to get loaded models , as they original purchaser covered the mark-up for all the options.
This vehicle rides and handles better than I expected for a midsize SUV. This is our 3rd Toyota, so reliability is not even a concern. I also considered a Venza, same model year, but they were more costly and harder to find.
I was driving a Mazda3, which has over 200k miles, so I wanted to give the CX-5 a chance, but the test drive didn't compare well to one on the RAV4.
