My wife wants to replace her Rav4 with a similar size (new, not German) compact SUV. Looking at the rankings (US News, Consumer Reports , etc), the Honda CR-V looks like the best deal. We're starting to make a list of what to look at. So far it's Acura RDX Honda CR-V Mazda CX-5 (wife loves that it comes in red, her favorite color) Things we have eliminated: Anything German (we want to keep the thing for some time) Toyota Rav4 (Toyota did nothing right in designing this model) Everything else is fair game. Any advice or suggestions are appreciated!
