    2005 Hyundai Tucson - LX (A4) 4x4

    Pros: Rear glass lift

    Cons: fake duel pipes , If real would have given it more power

    Advice: buyer beware

    No power to pull out, after you turn engine off where all that heat coming from, Is that really A/C, bad gas mileage. We all bought the car really for the winter but I have a felling all its fancy gadgets are not going to work well or if all... Buy the way no resale value I tried to trade it in at 5 dealers they just don’t want it.

    2004 Acura MDX - w/Touring Package

    Pros: Performance - nice power/handling

    Cons: Interior - overall poor finish/service

    Advice: Make your own choice

    Performance of the car is great. Nice acceleration, good handling. All those things that made me buy an Acura. The quality of the vehicle leaves something to be desired. Looks great at first pass, but drive it for a few miles and see and hear... Clunks from brakes, Squeeks and rattles from dash and console, Glove box rattles at every bump, Fit and finish of the interior very poor quality with sub standard material for a vehicle at this price point - compare quality to Lexus/BMW or Volvo - the differnce is obvious. One of the worst overall service experiences I have had with any product. Friendly up front, but unable to resolve any problems - very quick to throw up hands and say 'we can't fix, if you don't like go to arbitration' (and this is from the factory rep and customer service not dealership.

    2005 Hyundai Tucson - LX (A4) 4x4

    Pros: Safety, value, 'fun factor', little touches

    Cons: gas mileage a little disappointing so far

    Advice: If you're in the market for a small SUV, you'd be foolish not to consider the Tucson.

    I've had my Tucson a month and absolutely love it. I researched a lot of vehicles, and when you combine its safety, driveability, equipment, build quality, warranty, design, etc., I simply think the Tucson has no peers value-wise. Little touches like the in-door cup holders, top and side cargo area lights, flat-folding seats, and interior door panel light that's visible at night when the door is open show me a lot of thought went into this car. The great sounding 6-cd stereo and the sophisticated 4WD system also demonstrate Hyundai was determined to offer something that stood out from the small SUV crowd. Like others, I would like a little better mileage from the V6, but some reviewers have seen improvement as the vehicle breaks in. Overall though, I'm extremely happy and anxious to try it out in some Colorado snow!

    2005 Hyundai Tucson - GLS (A4) 4x4

    Pros: 4WD with 'lock' feature

    Cons: Offer electric seats

    Advice: If looking

    Drove and handled great.....enough power with V6, pulls the mountains with ease but bigger engine would be an enhancement. Very solid fill and I thought the driving postion and comfort was superb. All controls are where you need them and easy to reach. I've owned Subaru's, Toyota Tocoma's, and other (4WD) vehicle's, and in the snow, this will out do any that I've mentioned. 6 Air Bag's, ESP/TC, 4WD SAFE SAFE SAFE.........

    2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca - Limited 7-Passenger w/Gray Interior

    Pros: Ride comfort

    Cons: Third row seating limitations

    Advice: Test drive one, and you won't want to give it back!

    Pros: Upscale; quiet, smooth; responsive; leg/hip room; VDC, airbags standard; multiple seating configurations Cons: H6 3.0 struggles on long inclines; third row entry/exit OK for small kids This car fits my needs very nicely, with plenty of leg and lateral room in the first two rows, a quiet, smooth ride, unique looks, and all the amenities and options of a much more expensive SUV. The entry-exit is much lower and easier than comparably-sized vehicles, although you do sit up high enough to have a very good view of traffic. The driver controls are very user-friendly and easily accessible. The smoothly shifting and peppy H6 engine can supposedly do 0-60 in 8-something seconds, and does very well getting on the freeway and in passing. It could use a bit more power on steep inclines, however. Sport mode (extra 'oomph' for auto tranny) and manual shifting capabilities are a plus. VDC (vehicle dynamics control) and independent suspension also a bonus for driver and passengers alike. Subaru has done a very good job of designing a model that will compete well with anything in this size as well as any upscale mid-size SUV.

    2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca - Base 5-Passenger w/Gray Interior

    Pros: Curved dashboard.

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Drive it

    My first SUV and I love it. My 2 year old grandson calls it Grammy's ship. Space ship I think he means. Went to the dealers to buy a Forester and fell in love with the Tribeca. My husband liked it so well he bought one too.

    2005 Hyundai Santa Fe - GLS w/3.5L (A5) AWD

    Pros: Warranty, Stereo, lots of extras— traction control, fog lights, child seat anchors, etc

    Cons: low resale value, exterior styling

    Advice: check it out, you might be surprised

    I rented a Santa Fe on a vacation recently and was quite surprised by its performance and functionality. Shopping recently, I looked hard at Mazda Tribute, Jeep Liberty and Chevy Equinox. When I found out I could get a similar Santa Fe for 2-3K less, I went for it. Plus, the dealership bent over backward to make the deal. I really like the car. It feels solid and well-engineered. Yes, the 3.5L V6 is a little jumpy from low idle. Doesn't handle real well in curves. Mileage is not great— not terrible either. The ashtray doesn't seem fitted properly when you open it. That's OK, I don't smoke. Other than that, I couldn't be happier. Lots of nice features throughout, ergonomics are good. Stereo is very nice. Bumper flares are a bit odd, but overall styling is clean and simple.
