Question SUV suggestions



Hey guys as the title reads, im looking to get a new SUV to replace the escape.

Im looking to spend about 60 gs or under, but i dont know what is really good out there. The escape i found was too small, i was thinking a 4runner but im not sure. Anyone have any good ideas???


any suggestions will be much appreciated... thanks

Mike

how much space do you need?, I personally like the Infiniti FX45, but it isn't really good off-roading

Anything Jeep. Everything else is just a wagon with big tires.

the x3 is way to small for us, we barely fit all 5 people in there, the x5 is nice, more room then the escape but they want like 700 plus a month, which isnt the greatest, i mean we are just going to keep it for 3 4 years max, then trade it in,

i really like the MDX, but how is it on gas.... i know the 4runner is like 12 litres per 100km which is really good for a SUV

If you need space, then you should consider a van...Unless it's important for you to pretend you go off road .... ha ha

2002's got for just over $50K...And unlike an ML (or other SUV's) they will keep a good resale value...Mid 80's G's still go for $15-25!!!
