High ratings from every car review I have read. Very high resale value and see used ones all the time with 150k+ miles - I should be able to own this 10+ years.

2008 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
It goes without saying that everyone wants a reliable vehicle. I believe that Toyota is not alone in that objective, the other manufacteurs have caught up with them.

Unfortunately, I had to get rid of this car because with less than 100, 000 miles (it had 95, 000) and having beenexcellently maintained it gave me oil sludge problem, and the dealer recommended engine replacement... Unvelievable in a Toyota with such a low, well maintainedvehicle. I will never, ever again buy a Toyota. It was my first (and last) one. I would not recommend it to any one...
