NEED Advice: SUV comparison & purchase

01-30-2008, 09:51 PM
Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to purchase a used SUV and have narrowed the field to those below

Ford Edge
Nissan Murano
Toyota RAV4
Ford Escape
Saturn Vue

I'm hoping to get some feedback from you all. I have yet to drive any of them as that will be the next step, but would like to get some feedback from others taking everything into account (looks/cargo space/mpg/etc). MPG is important as I drive about 45 miles one way to work.

Thanks in advance

Definately not the Ford Escape IMO. It can get good gas mileage if you get the hybrid but it looks very bland to me. If I had to choose I would either get a Nissan Murano AWD as it looks nice, and can be quite nice on the inside as well. Otherwise, I would choose the Rav4 as they are not bad looking and come pretty reliable with deceint mpg.

i know that the rav4 is pretty dang quick especially the v6 i think 0-60 is like 6.3

Thanks guys...good feedback...and Escape was at/or near the bottom of my list. At this point the order is probably:

1. Murano
2. Edge
3. Rav4

Keep the suggestions & input coming.

Much appreciated
