    I'm not much of a Ford person either but I'll give the new escapes some credit, however personally still not for me. My problem is After ~9 year driving a full time AWD vehicle day to day including winter i'm not sold on these FWD vehicles with part time AWD.

    Thanks guys... I knew the Ford's were predominantly FWD. And it doesn't matter. I pitched the idea to the wife and she hates them.

    I thought I mentioned the budget... $10K or less.

    And I'm looking for something newer'ish. 2010 give or take a year.

    So, no, a 2005 Mercedes for $15K ain't gonna fly.

    From Chrysler, the Liberty is the only other tolerable one aside from the GC. The rest are pile-of-fuck cars with zero redeeming qualities.
    I will set fire to the next rental place that tries to hand me a Patriot.

    Maybe I could haggle them down closer to 10g's?

    Or a diesel that's pretty close to the price range...

    Are the 3.0L diesel's any good?

    With that price range in mind I don't think you could go wrong with a GC. Fairly reliable and maintenance is cheap if you ever need it. The V6 will be a lot better fuel mileage than the Hemi, but still not amazing by any means.

    Before making any decisions I would look at the Honda Pilot and see what you think. Well within your price range, legendary Honda reliability, and better fuel mileage. The CR-V is in price range too, but I think that's a FWD. Nissan Rogue is another option, I don't know much about them though. Never been a fan of Nissans.

    Just looked, and there is some Acura MDX in your price range for sure. Personally that would be my choice hands down. You get a luxury vehicle that still has great reliability, and reasonable maintenance costs.

    You people and your "luxury" cars :P when I was in San Diego last year I got a Mercedes Uber, and I really couldn't notice anything different between it and my #RAM Laramie The seats were rock hard, the trim and appearance inside where pretty identical.
