2001 Toyota RAV4 from North America
I love my 2001 Toyota Rav4 - it's reliable and reasonable on gas
Manifold cracked about two years after purchase.
The brakes have always squealed at takeoff when it is raining -- it's annoying, not a mechanical problem.
Since reaching about 80,000 miles, the automatic door locks do not work consistently.
I've had the car for 12 years, and the other than the manifold thing ten years ago, it's has been the most reliable car I have ever driven in my life. It has started every morning, and gets me home every night.
I've had one flat tire in the past 12 years, and the only maintenance we've done are oil changes, light bulbs, and last year the engine coils went bad and had to be changed.
I seriously love my car, and plan on driving it until the bottom rusts out!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
