    Are you talking best Off Road performance, or Soccer Mom performance?

    It would appear most buyers believe the Ford Explorer to be the
    best, since it is the number one selling SUV in the world and has
    been for many years.. However 'best' is relative. Depends on
    what you needs are in a vehicle. I would test drive and get a
    total drive home price for those that suits your needs and
    budget, then decide which is best for you..

    I know excatly what's the best one for me (size, gas mileage, price) but
    that doesn't mean it's the best for you.

    Every SUV has it's on specialty. There is no 'best' at everything.
    Narrow down what you want it to do, then go drive them.

    This SUV i'm looking for is for my wife for work and going to school at
    night here in wisconsin where the weather is sometimes hell at night. I'd
    like to find one about a year or 2 years old. I'm kinda looking at hondas
    and toyota seeing the consumer rates them the best.Anyone with good advise
    please let me know what you think and by the way midsize is the SUV i'm
    looking for
    thank you

    SUV for size? SUV for little extra safety being 4WD, AWD.
    Honda, Subaru, Toyota, Jeep has little different kind.
    Whatever you choose, I'd go for AWD type like Subaru.
    Mid size? Mazda Tribute, Toyota Highlander?

    Are you yelling so that we'll hear you over the sound of the tow truck
    pulling your chevy?

  11. Test drive the Honda Pilot and the CR-V and the SUVs made by Toyota. I
    don't trust SUVs and cars made by any American company.

    Best does not mean much. Define your purpose(intended use) first.
    No budget concern? VW, Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Porsche all make very
    nice SUVs. No thanks to U.S. made headaches.

    You have the right to your opinion but it is that of a minority.
    More American buy Ford SUV's than any other. GM is second.
    Foreign brand SUV's are far behind.

    I guess because of price.
    American built SUVs are not just exciting.

    If you're looking for a compact SUV, then according to all the research that
    I've done there are only 3 top ones. For gas mileage, reliability, resale,
    etc. they are: Subaru, RAV4, and the Honda CRV. According to Lemon-Aid and
    Consumer Reports these three outperform all the others!

    The Honda Element is by far roomier. And it is cheaper than the CRV

    And that is only because they sell thousands to rental fleets, they offer
    thousands in rebates, and GM, Ford, and Chrysler makes jillions of them.
    Just look at the resale! True, the domestics and Toyota are the only ones
    capable of doing any true towing or hauling, another reason people buy
    SUV's. I like Ford and GM myself....just wish they made vehicles that held
    up over the long haul (over 100,000 miles) without having to put serious
    dollars into them. Sales statistics aren't indicative of quality.

    Every manufacture has rebates and they ALL sell to fleets if they
    can. No manufacture will get repeat business if their products
    are no good. One hears that in the NG of EVERY brand almost
    daily. Somebody is always saying don't' buy brand 'X,' the ONE I
    owned was junk.' As to resale domestic do just as good as
    imports, when the percentage of total 'drive home' price is
