dtalk, I'm not sure what you are trying to express in your post. Were you saying that rental cars are junk (they are) and your cared for vehicle is not?
I think we would all agree to that.
If you are trying to compare a vehicle less than a year old that already has 15,000 miles on it and who knows how many drivers with a personally owned vehicle then i don't get it. My 2011 rav has about the same mileage as your rental and I experience none of those things. It's smooth riding (I don't have the sport) quiet and the brakes work great.
I rent all the time and believe me when I say that people beat the crap out of these cars. They drive over obstacles, drive in the wrong gear throw it into low gear to stop, you name it, they do it. A leased vehicle is different, I'm talking about daily rentals. I would never use a rental as a test drive vehicle unless I just wanted to compare types of vehicles; truck to a van or car to a hybrid or a similar comparison.
I apologize in advance if I misunderstood what you were saying.
