Toyota’s Newest People-Mover To Shake Up A Bogus Segment

Our has owned two, 2007 Hybrids, never having repair problems.  My reason for not the middle model change was to cost (the $7000 tax was gone), styling (larger and bloated), and simple creature for a couple of significant height (6 ft 4 to 5 ft 5).  I wanted memory seats and telescopic steering, blind monitoring, rear camera, tooth cell, built in XM etc.  All of these been corrected in 2014 even more safety and features.  And I like my wife more) the styling and comforts.  We are in our 70’s but have had sedans, suburbans, etc. we liked on the Hybrid was the AWD with the variable transmission with no of any shifting.  We liked the extended 8 yr. on the hybrid components although our people say they have changed the batteries and rarely trouble with the transmission.  My says she will not return to a shet enjoys the higher and better view.  We are not children cabers, but we do have a

mountain home at 5000 and use the AWD and ground clearance frequently in the without problem.  No serious off but we do feel very safe in SUV.  With 85,000 on both our Hybrids and a daughter who use hers for transporting kids AND use the 3rd seat, I feel we know about the value of these in real people usage the reviewers who are more interested in Peak runs and slalom  Our two biggest gripes Toyota were the hugely EPA. mileage predictions for the hybrids and the too high price for the rigs, especially the Hybrid.  I that it is built in Indiana of
70% American parts but the loss of a tax credit makes the choice of over gas difficult to justify even if you keep rigs for a time.  I hate to give up the transmission plus the extra of the Hybrid.  We have not found out if the will have a locking on the AWD as the other models have.

I actually wanted a minivan. I care about the stigma and laughingly call other like the Acadia, Traverse, and ‘minivans’ much to the chagrin of owners. After all, minivan had available 4WD or AWD back in the 80s and 90s and still do; the old Honda Odyssey and MPV had hinged doors; and the old Astros and were even truck-based on frame RWD.

But for me and my wife with two school-aged an 8 pass minivan seems overkill for space, we live in and mountain country so AWD is a must, and we some towing capacity—something all are short on.

Enter the CUV. I need it to go off-road, I’ve got a ten old 4×4 pickup that that better (and I have to worry about the paint). Plus, I’ve just about every Service Road in the area a FWD car. I want decent gas and I want the option of taking a of people or a bunch of cargo.

I’m still deciding the Toyota Highlander, the Ford the Ford Flex, the Nissan and the Hyundai Santa Fe XL. but so far Toyota to look like the best for price, reliability, and future

In the mean time, let it be known any vehicle with more five seats carries the of a soccer-mom-mobile. The CUV of the 2010s will be like the Country Squire of the 70s or the of the 80s.
