I am a Buick Rendevous 2002 owner with 78k mi. I have put too much money into this car the last couple of years that I think its time to unload it. I am undecided between the Rav4 and the Equinox. I can get the Nox for a little less money (GM rewards) but my concern is the resale and reliability of the Chevy. The Rav seems to have a little more cargo room and 2 years of free service but I don't care for the steel wheels or the tire on the back. I have always owned American, never a Japanese car but am willing to consider it after having all the problems with my Buick.
