Just bought new 3.6r limited, very impressed. Wife has an '07 rav4 6 cylinderlimited, but I chose ob as need to climb our snow/ice mountain to home in north central pa. Slid down backwards in rav4 3 times last year. Computer shuts down power when wheels spin. Ob leather seats are the most comfortable I've ever had, ride is unbelievable (a ride on a cloud) for a crossover. Toyota much stiffer and much louder inside- cannot talk front to rear on a trip. Mileage pretty good, acceleration great. Fit and finish good. Exterior lines cool, interior plush and techie. No steering shimmy and my dealership has never seen any. I am very happy with ob indeed.
Great suspension (fantastic ride for the class), seats, handling, power, tech (e.g. back up camera in rear view mirror, trip calculators, HK stereo, etc)
Would cvt give a fer mpg more (averaging 20 hwy and city with only 500 miles on vehicle)
