Looking for a new (used) car when I return from Germany - there are several months to pin down something perfect. Something that is dependable so I can count on it for daily communiting, but something with enough brawn to handle weekend excursions into mud/gravel/snow for some hiking and...

We're trying to decide on a premium family SUV with a few must-have options: comfortable second row that accomodates two child seats and one adult; usable third row for the occasional bigger crowd; AWD/4WD; no diesel.

Ideally, we'd prefer a hybrid or electric car, and would like to stay...

Even mix of city and highway driving - more rear passenger seat room will be needed for the pair of vertically-expanding spawn; I want some power and decent handling. Driver two holds rear parking sensor (or rear camera) and passenger safety in high priority. A bit ( not too much)...

Have looked at the 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L, 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited, and 2015 Dodge Durango Limited and each has its highs/lows. We are a fairly tall family with both adults over 6ft and the kids (no car seats necessary) seem to be heading that way. We golf, ski, andtake...

Looking for cross over SUV, comfortable on long trips, good fuel efficiency with exterior style. Key points to make or break car: high price, not comfortable, low MPG. Looked at Lexus RX350 and Audi Q5.

  4 responses   4WD SUV, Reliable, Capable in Snow, V8 and 3rd row a plus
02rsxpilot

Looking for an SUV that can: handle snow in Tahoe, fit four adults comfortably, and is reasonably reliable for its mileage. Bonus points for 3rd row seat to fit 6 adults if necessary (comfort not a big deal), V8/towing capacity for a ski boat and trailer (Mastercraft ProStar 205). Looking...

#1: Safety is an absolute. While most vehicles do a good job with front-end collisions, I'm particularly concerned with obtaining a vehicle with as much rear-collision safety features as possible. My wife had a serious back operation and a rear-end whiplash could cause her to be seriously injured.

  3 responses   Smallest car, van, SUV or whatever with third row seating
Member2217

I am at a loss as to what to look at. I have been thinking a Mazda CX5, but am unsure it has sufficient space. Basically, my wife is looking for third row seating for our kids, and their friends, but she is an unconfident driver, who is 5 feet...
  3 responses   looking for a mid size suv, which will carry a family of 4 easily with about 3-4 luggages. It will also be used for daily commute for short distances when not going on family vacations.
Member6633

Reliability, reliabilty, reliability and reliability. Oh btw, did I mention reliability ?
Everything else comes a very distant second.
Preferences are at least a v6 or even better a V8.
V8's last longer (hence the reliability).
I do NOT want a souped up turbo charged or supercharged engine.
Those engines...
  4 responses   SUV for long highway drives, super quiet on coarse concrete interstate surface.
Member6499

Has to be very quiet at interstate speeds on coarse surface concrete. Comfortable seats for long drives. Room for 4 adults.
Reliabilty is secondary to these two items, I have other transportation.
  2 responses   3 row sub/crossover
Member6235

Looking at a Highlander Limited or an Infiniti QX 60
worried about the reported reliabity of the Infiniti.
Not many mid size 3 row suv's to consider.
Not looking at Tahoe's or Expeditons ( too big)
looked at the GM versions : Arcadia.... not impressed

Member5335

interior space (for 4 children's car seats and a tall driver), fuel efficiency (highway/incity 50/50), and build quality are very important, as is overall bang for buck/value. Seat quality for the driver is as well, as I have problems with sciatica/lower back pain.
I have looked at the chrysler, hyundai,...

Member6608

Looking for advice and recommendations around replacing my 2004 BMW X5 4.4i. I've owned this car for about 8 years, and have been quite happy with it most of the time. Liked the handling, responsiveness, and panoramic sunroof the best as its features. Didn't particularly care for the higher cost...
