All things are relative...
I went from a 1986 Chevy Sprint to a 1991 Ford Escort GT and the latter seemed like the safest limo in the world compared to the Sprint.

Admitted Bias Upfront:
My Sister in Law's 2011 Outback Limited 4 Cylinder was just flat bedded to the dealer after a week of starting, not starting. Around 6,000 miles.
My 2006 RAV4 Base 2.4L is going strong at 100,000 miles. Regular service every 5,000 with Valvoline Dino 5-20. (F) Brakes at 62,000. (R) at 88,000. No other issues. Combined C/H 22mpg. Even accelerates as requested.
My 2010 RAV4 Base 2.5L is going strong at 15,000. Regular service every 5,000. Running Toyota 0-20 syn. No issues, combined C/H 24mpg. Accelerates as requested.

That's pretty rare - the Outback has been reliable and they sells tons of those.
If you check out the Subaru Crew threads you'll see a few alignment complaints but that flat bed story would be the only one.
