It's been fairly reliable. I have put nearly 80,000 miles and so far I have only had to deal with brakes. see full 2016 Honda Accord review

6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Doesn't everyone who buys a Toyota expect it to just run? With 7500 miles on the odometer, I can say I've got no issues nor do I expect any. No weird noises, nothing to take back to the dealer for, it all just works, and has been since I got it. That is a reassuring start, but something I've come to take for granted with the Toyota products. see full 2016 Toyota RAV4 review
