    2013~2016 On the fence... 2016 rav4 vs cx-5.

    Both are reliable, both r good cars. Rav 4 suspension was a bit stiffer than cx5 but cx5 handled better. I like the Rav 4 seats better, back seat is bigger also. So it's down to personal preference. Take a long test drive in both to see what u like.

    Suspension freezes in extreme cold weather

    When it's cold,.try pushing down on the car to see which corner is causing the issue. It's.probably a shock or strut getting stuck.

    Interested in 2015 CX-5 or 2012 CX-9

    Cx9s have Lot of water pump issues. That drew me away from it. Also it's a PIA to replace, gotta remove timing chain. Costly fix.

    Is it a large vibration you can capture on video or something light? If it's just light, try crc gdi intake cleaning and changing spark plugs first If it's heavy then either engine/trans mount or a CV axel bad
