Honda CR - V: I am looking at used Toyota rav4..Kia Sportage

This answer was rated:

I am car shopping. I am looking at used Toyota Rav 4, Honda CR-V, and Kia Sportage. I want to spend less than 8000. Assuming I like driving all three equally, would I be better off getting an automatic CR-V or Toyota with around 100,000 miles or a manual (which I love) Sportage with around 60,000 miles?
There are way to many users with the sportage so I would not even think of buying that vehicle sorry for the news but its the truth. They have engine and a lot of transmission issues. Highly reccomend the CRV they has no major issues and last easily to 250,000 miles. I still would get a pre purchase inspection to make sure everything checks out to be safe. Also the RAv 4 is small and does not have good pick up or handle well. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
