Suggestions please: help me help my dad.

My dad’s trusty truck is finally showing signs that it wants to retire after almost 300,000 miles and 28 years. Dad’s now looking for an automatic CUV / small SUV to use as a commuter, along with HD and grocery runs for the next few years until he retires. He wants something that’s 2008 or newer, decent on gas, and reliable. He’s looking to spend $7,500, give or take $1,500. Also, in case you’re inclined to Craigslist, he lives in San Diego.

So far he’s expressed interest in: Escape, CRV, Rav4, and CX3; but I honestly have no input or reference about how well they’ve held up. What should we be looking for/look out for?

Thanks!
