    Funny, how i don't see the Toyota Rav4 on this list.
    Its a vehicle built in CANADA

    The RAV4 is a much better alternative vehicle than the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox.

    I didn't include the RAV4--which is one of my personal favorites in this small SUV category--because I was offering alternatives that would not be in the same category as the Honda CR-V: the supply potentially affected by a lack of auto parts from the earthquake affected area in Japan. Other than that, the RAV4 is one of the best alternatives to the CR-V.

    What about the Subaru Forester or Kia Sportage?

    The Sportage could have been on the list: a four star overall rating under the new crash test system, 22/31 fuel economy, and selling like crazy lately in the U.S. However, the Subaru, like the CR-V, has parts made in the earthquake affected area of Japan.
