Hi! My wife and I are looking to buy a used small SUV cause we now have a new edition to the family and are in need of something bigger than our little rio hatch back. We've been looking at the toyota rav4 1999-2002 and the honda crv 1999-2002. Our budget is $5,500 and the ones we've been looking at so far have been between 220,500 - 285,500kms.
My question is which out of these two have the least re-occurring problems and also the cheapest to maintain. Obviously given the amount of km's your going to expect a little hard ware but if Log books and service history is provided which one of these is better than the other?
Both are great cars and both will give the convience your looking for, however, I have a honda with 200,000 miles and it runs fantastic. I personally would opt in for the Honda as it's reputation perceives itself. Eihter case, I think you will be happy with ither chioce. Good luck
