Q: Toyota Rav 4 vs. Ford Explorer Sport

I'd go for a RAV by far. Those things can last forever. If you are like me and you keep your car for a really long time, you'll be happy with the longevity of the RAV4. If you are one of those people who buys a new car every 5-8 years, you can buy either one, whichever you like better. It's your choice. I would recommend driving them around and whichever is more fun driving - buy it. But if you are like me and you like keeping things forever - I keep my cars for 2-300,000 miles, 20-30 years, then go with the RAV4.

Hi, thanks for writing in. Newer vehicles, such as the Cruze, run hotter for greater fuel efficiency. It also means the engine is running closer to "maximum" temperature more of the time, which included running the auxiliary electric fan more...
