That makes YouTube the nation's water cooler on Monday, and it's got some preliminary stats to share in the lead up to kickoff.<br /><br />As you know, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/super+bowl/">Super Bowl</a> advertisers, particularly automakers, like to endlessly tease their big budget commercials in the weeks before the game, many times revealing them outright days in advance. Because of this, YouTube can tell us which commercials have been viewed the most so far, and their top five list is all automakers.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/kaley+cuoco/">Kaley Cuoco</a> appears to have been a good investment for Toyota, as <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/28/toyota-kaley-cuoco-grant-wishes-in-super-bowl-xlvii-ad/">her ad for the RAV4</a> has garnered the most YouTube views - six million and counting - among Super Bowl commercials so far. Second place goes to Mercedes-Benz, though not its actual Super Bowl commercial, but rather the teaser for it. You know, the one with <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/22/kate-upton-mercedes-benz-cla-super-bowl-video/">Kate Upton and the car washing</a>, which is up to 5.6 million views. Third place is <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/25/choose-your-own-adventure-in-audis-next-super-bowl-commercial/">Audi's Prom commercial</a> (3.3M views), fourth goes to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/28/vw-debuts-get-happy-super-bowl-ad/">Volkswagen's slightly controversial <em>Get In, Get Happy</em> ad</a> (3.3M views), and the fifth and final spot is bookended by the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/23/toyota-releases-teaser-for-kaley-cuoco-super-bowl-ad/">teaser video for Kaley Cuoco's commercial</a> (3.2M views). You can watch all five in order <a href="/2013/01/31/youtubes-super-bowl-commercial-buzz-list-dominated-by-automaker/#continued">below</a>.<br /><br />The data above is current and official as of 10:00 AM EST today, though things are changing quickly. For instance, while preparing this post, we noticed that VW's ad has already passed Audi's in overall views.<br /><br />This order will almost certainly be upended on game day anyway when the full onslaught of Super Bowl advertising hits our retinas in real time. After all, we haven't heard a peep from <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/chrysler/">Chrysler</a>, which for the past two years has caught the nation's collective attention with its prideful and patriotic commercials.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/31/youtubes-super-bowl-commercial-buzz-list-dominated-by-automaker/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>YouTube's Super Bowl commercial buzz list dominated by automakers [w/videos]</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/31/youtubes-super-bowl-commercial-buzz-list-dominated-by-automaker/">YouTube's Super Bowl commercial buzz list dominated by automakers [w/videos]</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 31 Jan 2013 15:44:00 EST.

I've never liked the RAV4. For starters every time I see the name I translate "RAV4" into "RAPE" and the car feels very cheap when it comes to its construction. Ex-gf B's mom had one and I was tasked with driving it a few times and everything about the car screamed cheap. Everything was plastic-y and nothing felt solid. Even when I grabbed the interior and exterior door handles I felt like I could rip them off. And when I closed the door it felt like if I closed it too hard it might just fall off. It didn't have that solid "thunk" that my GP, Phoenix, or even my dads Equinox has.

This is why I've never liked Asian cars. Every time I get into one I feel like I could break something or rip a door off. My moms Infinity g35x. The Nissan Rogue that the farmers daughter has. ex-gf A's Versa, and ex-gf B's Hyundai Sonata and My brothers Avalon.

My sister owns a 2004 Rav4, thing is a POS. Been in the shop more times than I care to remember. Her now husband, likes to work on cars so he handles the "little" stuff but totally agree Mike. I had to drive that car a few times and even when it was newish, it felt just not right. I'm not a big guy, 6'0" and 165lbs but I felt like just sitting in it I would break it.

The interior is all plastic, why do people complain about GM cars lacking interior? The RAV4 is worse than my old '95 Monte Carlo IMO and the RAV4 cost more brand new lol

Don't get me started on Versas, my exgf had one of those lololol

the RAV4 I drove was a 2010. Same year as my dad's Equinox. The Equinox is far superior imo. Interior build and styling, and exterior styling (Because the RAV4 has that chunky and ugly spare tire container) You'd expect an SUV to be a solid vehicle because it might be subject to rougher conditions than your average car. The Equinox delivers on that 100% but the RAV4 felt like it would be able to hack it.

The only problem that my dads Equinox has is the 2.4L LAF gets finicky, but its nothing our local Chevy dealer hasn't been able to remedy with little cost. The 2012 Equinox has replaced the 2.4L LAF with the 2.4L LEA anyway
