both are solid, pick the Highlander if you already have a big family and she intend to haul a lot of luggage during her travels.

but the RAV4 would fit her, more chic, has good cargo space and good on gas too.

No kids yet. I’m looking at the RAV4 also. She’s learning how to drive and I want to get her as a surprise gift January ending.

Ford focus isn't bad. depends on what you feel is appealing to you. The 206 isn't bad and very fuel efficient. I did prefer the 206 to the focus manual to manual.

have been in both but only driven the 206 but looks more modern both interior and exterior than the zx5. though seems the focus is more loaded

we don't render services here because of financial gains be guided

Avoid the 2.0T. The 3.2L V6 is better but has timing chain issues.
Audis are a pain to work on. Ensure you have a specialist mechanic around you if you must buy.

The Acura tsx checks all your boxes. Shares parts with the Accord.

Since its your first, my only advice is, the lower the mileage the better. Don't listen to people who will tell you mileage does not matter as long as it's well maintained. Look for a well maintained low mileage unit.

Come back to thank me.

If you can get one below 100,00 miles then that's perfect. Between 100-150k miles is also good. Above 150 but below 200 is fair. I won't advice anything beyond 200k miles.

Any year you buy is ok, but adviceable you buy one fitted with 2.4L rather than 2.0L Incase you mess up the Engine for easy replacement

But is there any solution to the oil consumption of most Acura TSX models when attaining high mileage, because that seems the major problem of the car going by the complaints by most users online. Thanks
