A member in Texas, United States

I'm considering getting an Outback but I'm reading such mixed things about the reliability. Many people say that they are very reliable cars (minus some years in the early 2000's) but there are still some major problems. I want something reliable that is kind of/fairly rugged that has some room...

A member in Oregon, United States

For me, safety is my number one consideration. I know that Volvo didn't introduce the "Small overlap front" category for testing until 2013, but I wonder if the prior years for the XC60 were just as safe anyway, given Volvo's attention to safety issues. Did the 2009 - 2012 XC60...

We recently bought a 2012 CRV. Great condition. 56K. Perfect CarFax. BUT, I was shocked to find that my previous car, my beloved, but common KIA Soul actually had much more interior storage area, you know, "cubby holes".

I would be interested if other CRV owners share my opinion...

MY 2014 Kia Sorento EX V6 has recently begun to randomly fail to start. I took it in to Kia as it is under warranty but of course they can\'t get it to repeat the behavior. In all my research the inhibitor switch keeps popping up as the possible culprit.
