The Rav4 and Prius are very different vehicles, and serve completely different needs
I’d narrow it down first, either hybrid hatchback or smallish suv
In any case, both should be extremely reliable, just like that Lexus ES350
We have several Priuses in our fleet, and to tell you the truth, I’m not that impressed with their interior. It’s fine, but that Lexus is much nicer.
A few months ago, I replaced the water pump on my brother’s 2008 Highlander. 3.5 liter V6 2GR-FE engine, same as in your Lexus. I did it at home, and it was quite a bit of work. I removed all of the bolts connecting ALL of the motor mounts to the cradle, and jacked the engine SKY high, in order to remove the water pump. It’s tight in there.
Heads up, several weeks ago, the engine oil cooler hoses from the oil cooler to the oil filter base sprung a BAD leak. Absolutely no advance warning whatsoever. It was fine the day before, and then without warning a pinhole developed. I put in the updated assembly, which does away with the rubber hose. FYI, this is not the hose from the recall. So when it happens, you’ll have to pay for it yourself. And it was somewhat tricky to install the updated part.
