All good vehicles to consider, and not actually too pricey, relatively
Subaru is a great vehicle, lasts a long time, and has probably the best
resale of the group. Safe too.
Chevy Equinox is rated well, have a sister who has had a couple and really
likes them. I happen to be a diesel fan, I like the torque and mileage,
and Equinox will have a small diesel that will get 40 plus mpg.
Kia makes a good vehicle, pretty reliable, nice features, although some
things are a bit cheap in them. Still, pretty reliable and a good value.
Check with Kia, our local Kia dealer doubles the factory warranty to 10 years
and 200,000 miles. That has to be worth something...
