Re: Advice on small SUVs / first car purchase
I cannot comment on any of the SUVs you mentioned, but I've owned a Jeep Patriot for five or six years and really enjoy it. It drives like a car (which I consider a good thing unless you drive on rugged terrain) and gets good gas mileage for that type of vehicle. My wife and I are expecting our first child and she plans to start driving the Patriot once Baby arrives. It might be one for you to consider. I plan on replacing it with another Patriot one day (unless my father-in-law talks us into a Forrester, he works for Subaru).
