SUVs: What's Hot, What's Not

I’ve noticed that there are a lot of Honda Pilots and Jeep Cherokees (mid-sized SUVs) on the road from what I’ve noticed—I’ve been of the lookout since my car has had its problems: 2,000 worth of work just in the last 2 months and it’s a 2004 model!!! And from what the service guy recently said to me after spending my gazillionth hour with him: "Oh, yeah, (making a face as if he just licked a lemon) 2004 wasn’t a good year for that car. "


Maybe it’s the area in which I live, but every time I go through the drive thru of my local Starbucks, I’m staring at a Honda Pilot in front of me. Or perhaps if I drive a town or two over, then I would be staring up the rear of a Cadillac Escalade as it sneers down at me like the snobby train in the Little Engine That Could. Hellooo, little engine that can't!!!

Anyway, does anyone have one of these cars? Because I swear to you that one more problem and another hour spent at Nissan service department with my car (and the lemon sucking guy), then I’m running to nearest Jeep or Honda dealer or ?

Do you love what you drive? Can you recommend your car?

I've been driving my 11-year-old Toyota Rav 4 for eight years and I love it just as much as when I first got it - probably even more, because it's done so well for me. I certainly went through tons of car problems with the old car I had before I got the Rav, so I identify completely! Good luck with your car search!

You know, you are right... Everyone I know who drives a Toyota loves it, has had it for a long time, and never seem to have problems!! Good pick, that's another way to go...
