Ooops - sorry

I didn't think the Escape was very capable though. Hey how about the new Suzuki? I don't know anything about it, but it looks good on the TV commericial.

escape is a very good suv, was capable of towing alot too... its also good offroading and i was very pleased, its just its a little small for our family, i wanted something with a little more interior room..

and ps, i didnt mean to come off harsh, i was just upset becuase many people say that but they dont really know the situation.

Aviator:
1) too much fuel, avg. is 16.9L/100km premium 91+
2) too pricey, we pay 1,340/month, on a 36 month lease, thats a bit more than a Cayenne S
3) its got nice power but like I said, too much fuel
4) Can haul 7,100lb if you have anything you need to haul
5) interior isn't that roomy
6) dealership treats customers like crap, can't even be compared to a BMW stealership
7) Def. not worth the money

No Worries....I used to drive a Cherokee with 31" tires. We used to do some hard core wheeling occasionally, but haven't done so for more than 5 years. It was still in great condition, but because we were expecting our third child, we sold it and bought an Odyssey (need more space like you!!).

my mom likes the Escalade, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen. Haven't looked at any ML's but that probably won't happen either. Most likely X3 or X5. Where is your cottage?

If she feels a van is too big then I doubdt she would like to drive a Yukon, let alone a Yukon XL
