    Off of that list, I would choose the Toyota. I would be concerned about reliability issues and cost of repairs of the Tiguan, X3, and Evoque. Also, premium gas. 

    You should also check out the Honda CR-V and the Subaru Forester. I just test drove a 2014 Subaru Forester and it was great. HUGE moonroof, plus they’re really safe and reliable and Subaru’s AWD system is the best. 

    Make sure you check out Consumer Reports for reliability ratings.

    @2013septemberbride:  I think most luxury cars come standard with what most makes consider upgrades. Sometimes I don’t really care about what they consider well equipped anyway. I don’t plan to tow things or anything like that haha.

    I am about to buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee. I LOVE the 2014s. My DH is loving the RR Evoque right now. We just saw one for the first time last week and it was really nice.

    @weddingbee098:  +1 I think that will be our next car – I like the Rogue too, but it is a little small.

    We have a 2011 Rav4 and it is just OK. Ours is fully equipped and I love the sunroof and heated seats but you can get that with any car. There are several small things that I don’t like: (1) the navi system – it doesn’t work if you aren’t in Park, which is soo irritating. We don’t even use it, we just use our phones. (2) you can’t put the back seats flat without taking off the backseat headrests – so we put them on the floor and they get all dirty. (3) hate the way the trunk opens sideways, like a regular door.

    @2013septemberbride:  I can tell you based on the many, many reiterations from car sales people, mechanics and other car nuts do NOT get a Range Rover. I had my eye on one for years and thanks to the insight of others have steered myself in another direction.

    I am also shopping for a new SUV (DH said that could be my Christmas gift). I have had my eye on the Infiniti QX56 or the QX80. They are quite large but then again I currently drive a Durango (and love it). The reason I am leaning towards Infiniti versus Lexus, Audi or BMW is that they are quite reliable and reasonable in price to repair. My DH has an Infiniti G37 and loves it.

    It seems that you have a combo of luxury and non-luxury. What do you prefer?

    I drive a Murano and I love it! But I’ve got my eye on my next car, which is going to be a Volvo XC60. They are beautiful, comfortable, good on gas and were rated the safest SUV in the US.

    I would choose the Honda Pilot, seats 7 passengers. The price is also a low-cost point. I believe I got mine 4For 35 out the door

    You should look at honda cr-v… It has high ratings and Hondas I feel last forever(which is important to me) plus they are cute!

    @2013septemberbride:  I love the Nissan Murano too! We got it as a rental once on vacation and I didn’t want to give it back lol

    Also, my friend just got the Acura MDX and she loooves it! Its also awesome cuz it has a secret seat in the wayyy back you can pop open for kids and etc!

    Not sure how long you plan to keep this baby for but it was a life saver to her – stylish and great MPG and practicality!

    Personally, I am more of a Ford and Lincoln girl. I loved driving my parents’ Navigator and Explorer. However, off the list I would go with the Toyota
