Small Toyota SUV gets "best buy" ranking
Thinking about buying a small SUV to pull behind your motorhome? Consumer Reports published its test results of 2008 model year small SUVs in its December issue, which you may wish to read before making a purchase. When the testing was done CJ put the Toyota RAV4 Limited (V6) at the top of the “Best Buy” category. Small SUVs, Consumer Reports noted “can handle some light off-road duties and light towing, and they get significantly better fuel mileage than larger SUVs." At the bottom of CJ’s ratings, in the 17th position, was the Dodge Nitro SLT (3.7) which the magazine reported had poor reliability even though it was among the highest priced of the vehicles rated, which ranged from roughly $21,000 to $30,000 as tested.
