Don't touch an Outlander with a CVT. You're probably not going to find a whole lot of them (and therefore have many options) because they didn't sell many of them. It's also worth noting Mitsubishi probably won't be around in the US much longer, if they are, their dealers won't as they're not moving product.

It's a shame you're not interested in GM products, from what I've heard the Equinox is a top contender in that segment. "Fed up with the cars and service" sounds like you need to find a different dealer, because service isn't reflective on anyone but the dealer YOU chose.

You should definitely test drive a Mazda CX-7 and CX-9 though. They former has a turbo. CX-5 will probably be out of your price range (but better than anything else you're looking at).

If you are dead set on something terribly boring, out of those you listed I'd take the CR-V.
