    @2ndtime: I have a 2010 Santa Fe, and I LOVE it.  Amazing vehicle; great warranty, lovely to drive, super easy to park and drive, handles really well in winter conditions.  All around, I love it.

    I’ve been loving the Kia Sorento. Unless something else comes out that we like more, we’ll be getting one this summer. My friend has it and it’s a really nice car. You can’t beat the warranty! 

    I can’t really give an educated opinion on any of the ones you’ve listed but I know Hondas are good cars and the hyundais will have a nice warranty.

    I voted Ford Escape – they have great gas mileage and cool features. But I must say that my choice is biased because our family only purchases vehicles from GM/Chrysler/Ford since our local economy is dependent on families who work in those local factories 🙂

    I love all of them and have been seriously looking at them recently, though my list includes the Chevy Equinox, Mazda Tribute, Nissan Murano and Kia Sorento. The brand-new (and 2011) Kia Sorento’s are GORGEOUS and a good value.

    I do lean towards the Ford Escape still, I don’t actually know why or have a good reason. Lol.

    @2ndtime: I drive a 2009 CRV and I have very few complaints.  The tires on the car were pretty loud but I just got new ones.  I think the car drives very well.  I have over 50,000 miles on it due to my 80 miles a day commute (all highway).  I know the backseat is comfy too, and it has a lot of storage room in the trunk.

    If you’re looking for anything specific about it let me know!

    CRV has been amazing for the past 4 years!

    I’ll throw another option on the table…. Toyota Venza. All the room of an SUV with much more fun handling. I love mine. The 2011 Equinox I test drove felt like a slug compared to the Venza. We also test drove the 2011 CRV, but there wasn’t enough legroom for my tall guys. And the Subaru Forester was a rattle trap. When I was searching a year ago, the consumer reviews on Edmunds.com were really helpful.

    try out a Subaru Forester, they are a bit more expensive though. I tried a CRV and felt like sitting in cardboard for me.
