Car Shopping

For the last couple weeks, we've been doing some car shopping. My car's service engine soon light has been on for several months now and we've had it checked out and it came back as being the transmission. The last guy that tested it said it could cost us anywhere from around $700 to $4000 depending on the problem. Since its a 2005 with 150,000 miles on it, we think its probably just best to trade it in.

We are wanting an SUV that gets good gas mileage. I drive around 30-45 minutes to work and back every day, so gas mileage is important to us. I also want slightly more space than what I have now with my Pontiac Vibe. 

We've test driven 8 SUV's.

Kia Sportage: 22/32 mpg

Kia Sorento: 21/29 mpg

Mazda CX-5: 26/35 mpg

GMC  Terrain: 22/32 mpg

Honda CRV: 23/31 mpg

Chevy Equinox 22/32 mpg

Hyundai Tucson 22/30 mpg

Ford Escape 22/31 mpg

There were certain things I liked about all of them, so its so hard to make a decision.

So in the next few weeks we have to make a decision on which car will work best for us. I would love any reviews you all might have. We can use all the help we get as we want to make a good decision.
