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...
Good luck.

first  was a 2000) and she will probably stick with them forever.   --J.B.
